I have been given another award!! I cannot believe it!! Man!! Another award!! I do not think that I deserve these awards but I guess there are people out there in blogland that think I do SO I guess I will try to be humble and accept this award. Grams from talk to grams has honored me this time!! She is just a new blogger but is learning so much. Plus she keeps trying and that is what is so important. Discipline and never giving up are great virtues.

This award is given for these reasons: For those who answer blog comments, emails and make their visitors feel at home on their blog. For the people who take others people's feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping other bloggers design, improve and fix there sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.

See this is a very great award to receive....

I also wanted to include what Grams wrote about me because I thought it was so sweet and kind of her!!

"Sandy has made me feel welcome from Day one! She is still helping me learn! She always encourages me to not give up, I will learn! She has a lovely blog site it is very welcoming. You will want to stay there, it is very inviting and she always leaves great comments for a host of bloggers everyday!"

WOW!! Now that I am picking myself up off of the floor, I need to nominate 5 others for this award. Grams nominated those that I would have picked but there are so many many others so here I go:
1. Pea from Pea's Corner....I have been reading her post now for several months. She seems to be a very down to earth woman. I know that we would get along just fine if we could just meet in person some day. She has a great template. She is always offering things on her blog to everyone. She raises beautiful flowers. She is one of my favorite Canadians!!

2. Puss 'n Boots or Kat's Cradle is a fun blog!! I started reading her when she had her big kitty kat Oscar because I loved how she wrote about him as if she was the cat!! But then tragedy happened and we all lost him. AT least I felt like "we all lost" him too!! She now writes about herself and all that goes on with her family in Australia. I have always wanted to go to her country so I have a grand time visiting with her and learning about her country. She has 7 grandchildren just like me too!!

3. Nancy from Daily Blessings is another blogger that I would like to nominate and also would like for you to meet!! She has been very very busy these past few months with her daughter's wedding. She will be back in full swing with blogging again soon. She is a very sweet retired school teacher. She is a sweet Christian too which is always number 1 in my book!!

4. Rachel from Heart of Rachel is from the Philippines. I love getting to know people from different countries. She is a young mom with a little boy and a husband that COOKS!! wow!! Right there I am a fan!! A man that cooks!! Rachel has a HAPPY blog. She just changed her template and now it is even friendlier and happier blog!! She has a sweet spirit and again would be fun to meet in person.

5. Susan at Learning for Lifetime is a blogger that I have actually met. She came here to meet me. We only had a little bit of time. We ate at Lady and Son's. We had a fun time even though it was short. She is a great (patient) lady with a nice family of all boys!! You have to be a great lady to be raising all boys (at least that is what I think)!!! She is also a teacher and an author!! My right there she has her life all filled up! She is a very sweet and nice person. We got along great and I would like to be able to see and meet with her again sometime soon. She also is a Christian. She has a very nice blog. Go and visit her and see why she deserves this award!!

Those are my nominations!! Thanks so much for being such great blogging friends.

Congratulations, Sandy....I certainly think it's well deserved....I really am concerned for the people in England and Wales..Marion's daughter lives in a city that's flooded.....
