The Friends Love Award!

We have two super friends who were kind and gave us the Friends Love Award!

We are excited - what a "lovely" Award! What a surprise to be though of so fondly by Seventh Diamond and by Hugs Debz at Sugar and Spice and a Little Rice!!
Please visit their posts as they both selected some of the same blogs we would have.

There are so many who are out in the world doing so much "good". From feeding and sponsoring orphaned children, supporting adoption efforts, raising funds for children's causes like surgeries and adoption fees, to baby showers for new Mom's..... a wonderful community full of people who love others, unselfishly and willingly.
Kim at Seventh Diamond received the award from Jody's Cottage (another Mom in waiting for China baby) who received it from All Things Southern and Preppy (preppy 101) who received it from Lou Lou in Lilly! ....
Debz received her award from our favorite Secret Buddy, Kim B. at Journey to Isabella who received it from The Crazy Eight also known as The Nuthouse, who received it from Jody's Cottage. I love tracing back through all the great blogs!

Give REALLY BIG hugs to Kim B. who has learned that LID's April 2007 are in the REVIEW ROOM!! Yeah!

Getting this award means the following:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find friends and be friends.
They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships will be 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."

My Eight Blogs that we visit often as they are very CHARMING and aim to be FRIENDS:

1. We have always been amazed, grateful and inspired by Johnny at So, it's come down to this. He's been around the blog world and is the friendliest blogger we know. I don't think we thank him enough and appreciate what he has done over the years.
2. Another lovely family and generous heart for children (check out Jailynn's Prayer) and Elmo lover over at Hunan Spice.
3. The Piper Family with Allison and Kelly; love their conversations and that they live in my favorite State half the year.
4. Love Fin over at Shark Bait. Our NASCAR buddies! Rev your engines; race season has begun!
5. Inspirational, fun and .... over at Adoption and Fire.
6. My place of solace and lots of friends at Stirrup Queens.
7. We will select a local blogger this time by Donna and Randy at Handsful.
8. And this blogger has every award so far so add this one too over at Ni Hao Y'all.

And I always like to add more so here's a new blog with a new daughter! Say Congratulations and share some love with Kristine and Shawn at Butterfly Kisses and 100 Wishes!
