Sharin' the love...





Just when I'm trying to get over the shock of receiving the Superior Scribblers Award I discover that some of you dear people have nominated me for the Marie Antoinette Award! My goodness! Things like this just don't happen to ME!


I want to thank


Cindi from WISHING FOR MY TURN http://wishingformyturn.blogspot.com/2008/11/marie-antoinette-award.html


Karen from KBears Heart 2 http://kbearsheart2.blogspot.com/


and


Wes From Life is What it is Sometimes http://lifeiswhatitissometimes.blogspot.com/2008/11/marie-antoinette-real-person-real-award.html


for nominating me. Their faith in me astounds me!!


So, now it's my turn to nominate 7 people for the Marie Antoinette Award. I love this because I had to leave out some of my favorite journals earlier and I get to tell you about 7 more of my favorites. I wish I could nominate at least 10 more, but the rules are the rules. Please stop by these journals and leave them some love. I know that they will become some of your favorites too.



Marc from Grains of Sand http://grainsofsand-poetic-marc.blogspot.com/ I've been reading Marc for several years and he never ceases to amaze me with the masterpieces he paints with words. He is such a gentle soul and has such a way with words. You don't just read Marc's journal, you go along on the trip with him.

Paul from Brininess and Volubility http://waterboywriting.blogspot.com/ I'm not sure how I found this journal but I love it and am always excited when I see a new post up. Paul is a retired English teacher who has fine taste in music, goes on some really neat trips which he thankfully shares in his journal and has some wonderful stories about his character of a mother, lovingly referred to as Grammy. (I love the Grammy stories!)


Leslie from 2807 Sunflower Lane http://2807sunflowerlane.blogspot.com/ Leslie is the Queen of Celebrations! This gal takes decorating to a brand new level. Make sure you go back and see all of her Halloween preparations. I think the White House should hire her immediately and put her in charge of all things celebratory! Plus, she has great taste in dogs!!


Janie from There is only 1 today http://thereisonly1today.blogspot.com/ Janie is one of those people who just makes you smile. I love reading about her adventures with her animals and just soaking up the sunshine that reading her gives me. Her place will just make you feel good. What more could you ask for.


De from Where Do I Go From Here http://desthoughts.blogspot.com/ De is a fellow nurse and just an all round good person so deserving of this award. You will read about her friends and her life with her son and you'll smile, a lot. And you'll cheer for her! Please cheer for her!!!


Ada from One Way Trip http://onewaytrip18.blogspot.com/ Ada writes with such candor and honesty and I always look forward to new posts from her. I love her spirit and you will too.


Jeanie from Adventures of an Eclectic Mind http://adventuresofaneclecticmind.blogspot.com/ You'll learn some pretty neat stuff on Jeanie's journal. And if you like horses (and who among us doesn't) you'll enjoy reading about her horse.



The Rules:1. Please put the logo in your blog2. Place a link from the person, from whom you received the award3. Nominate at least 7 or more4. Put the links of those on your blog5. Leave a message on their blog to let them know

Hello Melissa, Thank you so much for nominating me with an award. Leave it to me to be gone over 2 weeks when I receive a award. lol That was very sweet of you. I will have to check out some of the blogs that you nominated, they all sound great. It is going to take me a couple of days to get in an entry on the award. Not real fast with things like that. lol I would like to nominate more than 7. lol

If I am not on journals... I am on ebay. I must have been in a shopping mood the last 2 weeks!! hehe If my husband had false teeth he would have lost them each time a package came in the mail for me. lol But... tell me... WHO??? can pass up something at give away price? lol I listed 7 things last night and sold a belt buckle for $85... hmmm not bad for 3 hours work at home on the computer. lol
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Again, thank you for the award. :-) Love, hugs, and prayers, Janie

Melissa, thank you so much for mentioning my journal. It means a lot to me that you like what I have to say.
Congratulations on your award, and well deserved! I haven't posted anything for a number of reasons but reading your words about gloom and doom helped me see things a little differently.
I don't know you personally, yet I do. I feel so blessed by knowing people like you.
Ada
