A Sweet Mom Award

Lynette from Lynette's L.A.M. passed on this sweet award to me proclaiming to all that I am a great mother, and I am so glad she did!! I couldn't be more honored. Every day, I know that I am blessed beyond measure for being given the chance to be a mom. That's not saying that I don't have a few gray hairs with "Sweet Baby's" name on them, because rest assured, I do! And it's not saying I always do a great job of it, but I wouldn't trade being a mom for ANYTHING in this world!

This is a picture of "Sweet Baby" when she was little. It didn't scan very well, and her hair isn't really reddish, nor does she really even look like this now, but you get the idea. She's my angel!

This award was originally passed on by "Wibeche" from ourdreams-wr and she is located in Norway. How cool is that? We're passing around an international award! Way COOL! I don't read Norwegian, but I've been told that it means:

"This is an award for being a wonderful Mom
You do fantastic work
Be proud of your accomplishments!"

Now, I have met so many great moms blogging, and some of you, I'm sure will receive this from some others I have seen this award passed on to, so I am choosing to pass it to:

1) Beth @ I Am Heading Towards My Destiny

2) Envoy-ette @ It Could Be Worse

8) Stephanie @ Angelic Accents (a very new grandmom!)

9) Ally @ Ally's Corner


11) Darlene @ Darlene's Days

Please pass this award on to the other great moms in Blogland! Thanks, Lynette! It means alot!

Hello Penny, I just went to Bonnie's blog and I am overwhelmed with sadness for that family. Thank you for the photo on the sidebar. I would not have known otherwise. Something like this sure makes one count their blessings.

Congrats on your 'MOM' award. That is the sweetest thing anyone can say to a mom. We mom's try so hard to be the best mom we can be and that is not always easy.

Best wishes to a terrific mom, thats you...Jeanne
