An Award!

Proximidade! Award

awarded by Dorothy at "Counting My Blessings"

Dorothy is a new blogging friend.  Just her blog title tells a lot about Dorothy.  I love to read her blog and I’m telling you… she has the SWEETEST testimony!!  Thank you, Dorothy, for “bestowing” this award on me!

Here's a little bit about the award:

To translate the gift from Portuguese to English, it means: "This blog invests and believes, the proximity" [meaning, that blogging makes us 'close' -being close through proxy].

"Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say its authors.  This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Now, passing along to eight… I have so many blogs that I LOVE to read, but since this award is about discovering close friendships through the blog world, I am going to pass this on to eight bloggers that I’ve never met but consider my dear friends:

1.  Betsy at Betsy Maddox

2.  Amy at Chapters

3.  Dawn at Dawn's Cottage Corner

4.  Leigh Ann at Horton Happenings

5.  Becky at Looking Through the Eyes of Love

6.  Emilie at Mimi's Memories

7.  Marlene at Stitching By the Lake

8.  Meredith at Life at 7000 feet

You have all become people that I enjoy getting to know more and more on a daily basis.  You blogs are all encouraging, uplifting, funny, touching, and real.  I hope to one day meet you all!!

Jacquie, thank you so much for this thoughtful award! It has certainly been so fun getting to know you and many others since I started this blogging journey. Isn't it amazing how blogging makes us feel so close even though we have never actually met each other.

Thank you again for your friendship and for this sweet award!

Have a great weekend!

I'm just now catching up on reading blogs--been out of the blog circle for a couple of weeks! I LOVED that story about the G.T. contest and going to Disney World. Hilarious!

What a special award to receive. Thank you so much. You are so sweet and it has been GREAT getting to know you through your blog.

I had no idea when I started blogging that it would be the blessing that it has become or that I'd get to meet so many wonderful people, but God knew. I am so thankful for you friend.

Have a Blessed Lord's day,

Hi Jacquie,
Thanks for your kind compliments! I thank you for participating in this. I hope that you and your family have a blessed Christmas season.

Thank you so much!! It is so funny because I never would have thought I could meet so many wonderful friends through blogging. But I love reading your blog, too, and definitely consider you a dear friend!

Thank you for this sweet award!!

Becky said...

Sweet Jacquie, thank you so much for giving me this award. I have met so many wonderful friends through this adventure. When I starting blogging it was because both my daughters were bloggers and I thought it would be a fun way to keep in touch with them. Never in a million years did I expect so many new found friendships. Especially yours! Your are one of a kind and I really enjoy what seems to always be....our late night emails back and forth to each other. HA!! Thanks again!

Would you ever had dreamed in a million years that you would make actual friends through blogging? If you would have told me that 4 years ago - I would have thought you were nuts!!! :-)
I love reading your blog!!!!!!

Leigh Ann said...

For ME? Jacquie, you are honestly the sweetest person I haven't ever met. Ha! Although, I feel like I have known you for years from reading your blog. You know, I thought about you on my way to Branson, and if I wouldn't have been with a carload of people, I would have called you so I could at least said hi in person. One day maybe I can do that! Thank you for mentioning me. You are THE sweetest!
