The Mariuca Super Star Award, which symbolizes friends of the originator's ability to lift her up when she needed to be lifted. I think blog friends by in large are like that! This one, no doubt about it, my Texas Best Friend Duo: Bubba's Sis and USO Girl! They lift me when I need it. And they don't realize it but by being amazing friends to each other and showing that support on their blogs, they lift me and everyone else who reads it. It is proof that family is not blood, family is who you love and who loves you (can be blood, but not required!). I'm one of those who has made my family who I love, not blood--and I'm certain God's compassion is what drew me to love my friends like I do.
And Trinity, she blessed me with this one too! Thanks Trinity, you made my day! And I'm sooo excited about the giveway I won--just tell Gi to keep her hands out of my bag, please! (she's mailing these internationally so knowing Gi lives a few hours away and will be up in December, she chose to mail them to GiGi. How Gi got her to go with her scheme, I will never never know, but I will be monitoring this closely!)
Gi, Cat, Cheryl & Dawwwwwn are all four my dear friends (two of them I have been honored to know in person) and they all have put their confidence in our friendship this week in a personal way. And I know I say this a lot, but there's no better friend in the world than a friend who lets a friend BE a friend. And it's an honor to be here for you when you ask me to be. And even when you don't. You are all four dear to me and I'm honored to be your friend.Okay, I'm darned tuckered out! Hyperlinking isn't my gift. I'm off to shower. I was up late typing and up again early finishing up. For the first time since my father died five years ago I wasn't able to complete all my work by deadline. So...my coordinator, Debbie, being kind like she is, let me carry over without a second's thought. Thank you Debbie!!
