and the award goes to:

Imagine my surprise and absolute humbled delight in having received this award from my dear friend/evil seperated-at-birth twin sister, Mindy. Excuse me. Her Royal Highness, Mindy. She is so real and down-to-earth...I don't know how she ever found me, but I am eternally grateful that she did, amidst all the blogs out "there." Divine intervention? I believe so.

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find 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 are 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."

And so it is, that I give this award to the following eight, some know of me, some don't know I exist. But do know this: I find inspiration in their words, works and spirit.

Marching On! Eloquent and inspiring, his words never cease to amaze me. Love of family, God & country are evident. Loyal and gentle, he's my dear brother.

I Have To Say...that Randi has a gentle heart. Generous and refreshingly honest, I get my dose of goodness from this sweet and dear, friend.

Gator World. My, my, my, the sarcasm, the wit! Her mother, Mindy, is royalty, which makes her an heir-apparent. It's apparent that she has a lovely, wicked streak of humor!

Donna Randall's Blog is sooooo Donna Randall. She makes me laugh...it's as if I'm sitting in her living room carrying on a conversation with a 20-something year-old young woman. Not a worry in the world, just kickin' back and lovin' life!

Soule Mama. So relaxing and ethereal. When you visit, it's as if she's pulled a chair alongside her favorite rocker in front of the fireplace, rocking and watching the children. Lovely.

The Pioneer Woman. This blog has won numerous awards for her writing and wit. She's awesome! A wonderful site and she has the BEST giveaways, ever! But don't enter the giveaways, you have better things to do with your time!

A Giveaway A Day. How does she do it? And keep everything straight? I don't know! I am amazed...and she even took the time and sent me some links on how to do some bloggy pimpin'. Isn't that nice?!

Kitchen Scrapbook. This lovely lady is a Mennonite and she blogs! How cute is that? And her latest recipe is Shoo-Fly Pie. I've always wondered what exactly that is... her photo is darling! I'm totally fascinated with her.

Keep up the wonderful writing, dear friends. You continue to inspire me, to push me. I started all this craziness alone, but now have a great network of friends. Thank you!

Stop and think about it. If I am a Princess...and we were seperated at birth...then YOU ARE A PRINCESS TOO!!

And I think I must have found you through Randi. I read Pioneer Woman at times but I never read through her comments so it had to be Randi!

OH, Randi is the finder of lost twin sisters! I knew that she was special! It makes sense that God would entrust the special "sister-finding mission" to a sweet soul like Randi.

Well, you are sweet! Thank you for the fun award and kind words.

You know, I have been known to be a matchmaker (or at least a wannabe!) and I think you and the Princess might be my first success story. Maybe I should do this as a job!

Thank you for your too-kind words and this marvelous honor, Patti! I keep whining about not knowing enough bloggers to pass on these distinctions--this award or, the "tagging" we did last week--but have concluded that I need to "get out there" and find more bloggers to communicate with. Thanks again for the inspiration you've given me!
