A Blogger Award of my very Own!

I went to view my friend Lura's blog, as she gives blog awards on Wednesdays...and was I surprised that I was the recipient of this award! As she received it as a great honor from Marie in England, I too am honored to receive this lovely award as it continues to circle the blogging world (literally).
"This very beautiful award, an expression of the special threads of relationship and sisterhood connecting women, was created by the artist Tammy Vitale of Women, Art, Life: Weaving it All Together. Its purpose is to send love and acknowledgment to women who brighten your day, teach you new things, and live their lives fully with generosity and joy. "
...
Like any award, it comes with rules and obligations:
..
1. You can give it to one or one hundred or any number in between - it’s up to you. Make sure you link to their site in your post.
2. Link back to Tammy's blog: Women, Art, Life: Weaving it All Together (so Tammy can go visit all these wonderful women and see where, and who, the award has traveled to).
...
Giving such an award is tricky. Because of the criteria, there are so many....but I have been touched by so many of you my personal friends, and those who are like daughters. However, today I would like to pass this lovely award on to three family "friends" that have touched my heart this week.

First to my HEIDI - http://mattheidishirley.blogspot.com/my very own daughter. She came here on a bit of a vacation and was able to do that, but helped out alot with the wedding preparations as well. She is the fabulous momma of my Jackson, who would not be the amazing little guy he is without her nurturing, fun, loving personality that he learns daily from her. It is always magical watching them interact. Love you my Heidi baby!

Next - My sista Lori, (and her hubby Brent!)http://princewilliamsworld.blogspot.com/ they are the ones who with their cutie boy Will, drive hundreds of miles to bless us with the gorgeous flowers for our kids weddings. They have sacrificed to do their floral magic for our 3 boys weddings. Just learning the blogging world, I know Lori will love it once she dives in. Their little family blesses our family no matter where they live. Right now in Provo Utah, they have been Brendon's safe harbor while he attended BYU, what more could a mother ask for.

Last but not least, my sister in law Sara. http://theholmesfamilyest1990.blogspot.com/She is always there for me....Hosting showers for my daughters in law, Offering her time and talents to help with the wedding preparations. Loving our family unconditionally, and sharing her cute kids with us. She is a convert to the church from her youth, and embraced everything about it. She is a wonderful example as she teaches her children with her hubby Phillip to walk uprightly before the Lord. I love her smile and her ability to create beauty wherever she goes. I am blessed that she is my Holmes sister.
