Cajun Quilter- You simply AMAZE me with all the lemonade you are making with the lemons life throws you. Your steadfast love of the Lord even in the midst of trouble and heartache is AWESOME!!

Both of you had me in tears btw. And it has taken me a long time to respond cause I just am not sure I deserve this honor :-).

I am supposed to bestow this on 5 deserving people. Well some of you will have it more then once lol.

Ok here are the ones I am giving it to: Daphne's Diary

This lady shows more love and compassion in her little finger then most people have in their whole body. While struggling with many serious health issues this incredible woman still takes care of her husband, 2 sons, her mom and dad, and helps her brother and sister-in-law raise their 4 small grandsons. This lady's heart has amazed me for years and I just hope she realizes the crown she is preparing for when she arrives with Jesus.

I know I shouldn't do this to you, but you are one of my closest, dearest friends even though we have never met in person. You are amazing in the love you have for others, especially the children God has put in your path. You show much grace and wisdom in your dealing with them, and with your own children. I love how you enjoy taking care of your family and everyone else that God sends your way. You and I share a heart for the old ways of homemaking and that is awesome to me.
Laurel Wreaths Reflections

This lady always blesses and challenges me when I read her blog. She is awesome in her love for God. I love her humor and her serious side both. They are well balanced and a blessing to me each time I have a few minutes to spend there.
Letters From Enfield Land

Well now for this one I am prejudiced lol. This is my oldest daughter's blog. And since she lives 900 miles away from me, I always check to see if there are new photos of her family. She is the mom of our granddaughter with Bells Palsey and I am just so blessed by the things the Lord has shown her through this journey. She went from being terrified at first (as all of us were) to growing strong through this journey. She is an encourager to her young daughter and to me as her mom. I love you sweetie. I miss her family.
A Glimpse of My World

And last but not least is my youngest daughter. I love seeing the pictures that she takes and what she does with them. She wants to be a photographer and considering she is using very inexpensive cameras she takes awesome pictures. I know that she can do anything she sets her mind to as she is a very determined lady. I am so glad she has come back to Louisiana. I missed her alot.

So there are my 5. I just wish my middle daughter would start a blog lol. Then I could do more of these lol. Our middle daughter is equally awesome. Even though she doesn't have a blog I will tell you about her. She is a strong lady even though she probably doesn't think so. She has overcome much in her life and is a remarkable young woman because of it. She is always there if I need her (as are the others) and while she has an "attitude" lol she is very loving. She uses the attitude to hide her compassionate heart from the world.

Please know that each and every one of you touch my life in one way or another and I thank God for you each day.
