In the last few days Ihave been awarded some beautiful blog awards from two of my readers. I so appreciate these awards and honesty say I couldn't be the blogger I am if God didn't give me the big mouth who always has something to say along with the ability to write *something* to coincide with that! :) I thank my husband and my children for allowing me the time to play on my blog whenever the desire hits, or in the very least understanding when I stop in mid sentence and grab a piece of paper so one of those "profound" (ha!) thoughts didnt' dissapear before I could share them.
Thank you Annalisa for the following awards:
Her kind words on her blog touched my heart in many ways! "I love you and admire you Sheila! You're a shining star in this amazing life. Without your help and encouragement and insightful advice, I probably wouldn't have made it long in blog land."
Thank you so much Annalisa for your encouragement and love you send my way every day!
I would also like to thank one of my newer readers, Sarah, for her love, support and kind words as well. I have known Sarah for a few years from a message forum, and it just amazes me when I find others with like minds with such physical distance between them!
If you are reading this blog ~ right now ~ these awards are yours as well! Each one of you are special to me and I want to be able to show you! So .. thanks!
Here are the awards I have been given by Sarah:
With the honor of this award, I am instructed to list 7 things that me Awesome! (Don't giggle ~ k?)

2. I am finally, after 35 1/2 years learning to love myself. This is truly the hardest thing I have ever done.
