What! Me...an award!

They say good friends are forever.....at 54, I'm beginning to believe it.  I also believe that friends are always willing to look at your "good" side, as opposed to people who don't know you and are looking to see what you do wrong.

So my long time friend Bunny at I'm Just Sayin' gave me a Sunshine award............aha, right Bun.
A "sunshine award".  Know what, I'm gonna accept it even if it ain't so.  I'm not very good at accepting awards cause I'm a giver, but sometimes, you just gotta put your hand out and take what's been given to you.

Thanks Bun.

And now....drum roll please.....I'm gonna pass this award to a few people who are always a ray of sunshine in my life.  These people, Bunny included, have a way of affecting my mood in a positive way; most times they're not even trying.  It's just who they are.  All natural and stuff!

So here they are....take a peek when you get a chance and see if you don't agree. I think you will.

My lovely cousin Anita @ Castles Crown and Cottages
My dearest Comadre Debbie @ From Venting to Viggo
My ever so inspiring cousin Ruben @ Rattus Scribus
My hysterical blogger friend Maggie @ Just Between Me and You
My ever so talented friend Norma @ Bloggeritaville
And the ever so creative Winona @ Shabby Chic Diva's Pink Corner

I started blogging because Ms. Norma @ Bloggeritavill always had so many humorous stories and truth be told, I wanted to be just like her when I grew up.  Then I discovered I was...screamed and started my own blog.

To those I've mentioned and those I haven't, THANK YOU.  Your friendship, honesty, inspiration, humor, talent and creativity bring me up when I'm stuck in a rut.  If it weren't for you and Calgone, I'd be bored and dirty.

I'm not a blog head, I'm just looking for a little amusement and connection out of the ordinary......for those of you who do not blog, try it.  You just may find a place where you can express yourself and make a couple of fun friends while your at it.

Hey Marie,

I was reading your latest post and preparing to congratulate you on winning this Sunshine Award, which of course you deserve. Then I was pleasantly surprised to see that you are nominating me for this same award.

So besides congratulations to you, I give you my sincere thanks.

Ruben
