Important stuff this week

This week flew by-but it was a good week. My Daddy is doing better but he still needs your prayers. I think he’s more than a little down from all this –so pray for his spirit to be lifted! Thanks!

I got an award recently and never acknowledged or spread it…Sweet Maree gave it to me and it is special.

The award is a fine one because it focuses not on the glory and fanfare of blogging, but in the PROXIMITY to one another through this online-world (kind of a Six Degrees of Separation sort of thing).

The meaning of this award...
This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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.

I would like to share it with Valerie who started me at blogging. She is my friend and Sista in real life.

The other 7 I’d like to give it to are:








All of these ladies are from my real life-many of them have joined me on this good experience and we do go out and find others then we spread the circle even more.

I’m thankful they read me and give me great things to read as they share themselves.

Maree found me on one of my favorite spots –LeAnn’s .

If you haven’t found your way to them-you should!! They inspire me and I look forward to their every post!

Now, more from my week…

Tuesday was a busy day-it looked something like this


I got to be Santa for the sweet Red Hat Ladies-I love them- they have a lot of fun and we have grown from about 5 or 6 to 27 at this luncheon.

Tuesday night the Homemakers came to my house –it was a COLD and rainy night so I fixed a pot of Taco soup and we made Fruit baskets for shut ins.

They sure were beautiful and full of goodies –I hope they brighten the people we make them for. The ladies gave me a sweet gift –they say it looks like me-a sweet porcelain Angel for my collection…

Wednesday was little Ryder’s birthday and I already shared that with you, but wait surely you wouldn’t mind one or two more of the 65 pictures I took that night…

For the rest of my week, add a couple of Christmas parties and a dinner and some shopping with my hubby. The grandgirls spent the night last night and tonight we have the children’s musical at church.

As my sweet blog friend Brenda would say…

It’s all good!!!!!!!

Be blessed!

Georgie revealed the SSS partners today, so I guess I don't have to hide anymore. I hope you'll come by and visit me. I'm giving away $100 gift card to Sears this week. *hugs*
