Blog Friend Forever Award

I received this Blog Friend Forever award from Grams last week. This award is "presented to awesome blog owners who keep their readers excited about their posts. Their blog posts are interesting (not spammy) and worth reading and keep their subscribers looking forward to each and every posts." Although the description doesn't say this- I'm also assuming because of the name, that you pass this award on to people you consider to be your friend forever. Getting this award from Grams means a lot to me. Grams is one of the sweetest and kindest ladies I know. She has become very special to me and I really treasure our friendship. If you don't already read her blog you should stop by and check it out here. Thank you Grams!

Updated to add: I also just received this award from Sharon. I always look forward to visiting Sharon's blog. She usually has some great spiritual advice and she is a wonderful lady! I am so glad I have "met" her and am able to call her my friend. Visit her blog here. Thank you Sharon!

I am going to pass this award on to Regina at Regina's Family Seasons. She's a new blogger and has a wonderful blog. If you don't read her blog yet, stop by today- I'm sure you'll enjoy her posts. She's an amazing mom to 5 kids and grandmother to a beautiful baby girl. She's full of wisdom and advice and is someone I most definitely consider to be a friend forever!

In other news- you all keep asking me how my birthday was. I had a wonderful day. Thank you all for the many happy birthday wishes you left on my blog! My parents were here from out of town to visit. We went out to dinner, had cake, and I received some wonderful presents. Later we enjoyed sitting and talking by a fire in my back yard. I had a great day. I'm not sure exactly why I feel so down about turning 30- I know it's not as old as I thought it was when I was a teenager. But, for some reason the idea of being 30 is down right depressing. But, my birthday celebration was just great!

Hey, a girlfriend once told me that everything good happens in your 30s...you settle into marriage, you start having kids/family, you start liking yourself more...and it's true! you just have to get used to the number.

Congrats on the award! That is a good feeling to know you have connected so well with someone! I will have to check out those blogs...I do read Regina's already, but I will have to check out Grams and Sharon. Thanks for the birthday update also. I know how you feel....I turn 30 in January. I am not looking forward to it...I don't know why...it just seems like that is old and I don't want to be old.

Debbie said...

Oh....Happy belated Birthday!! I'm sorry I missed it.
I totally understand how you were feeling. I think I experienced that at 28. I know that sounds odd, but for some reason this is the birthday that I realized I was no longer a teenager.........

Congratulations on your awards!~~

Andrea said...

Congrats on they award!!
I felt the same way when I turned 30. I didn't see it as old but when I was a kid and teen I did so some part of me still kinda felt that way. I just choose to keep celebrating my 29th instead!!
