How Sweet It Is...

To feel loved.
The uplifting Lisa recently awarded me with this

Isn't that a cool award!

Here are the steps:
1. Say one nice thing to the man in your life: I love you and am thankful for the friendship, partnership and kinship that we have.

2. List at least 6 ways you measure success in your life: Everyday if I can inspire someone, if I can teach someone, if I can say hello to someone new, if can I smile, If I can make someone else smile and if I can get through the day and still want to do these things again tomorrow then I feel I have been successful.

3. Assign 5 other blogs this award:


And then I was happily surprised to receive this award from Dalis. I was thrilled to bits because I don't know Dalis, she reads my blog and thought me worthy of receiving this award that she came out of 'hiding' to tell me. WOW, thanks Dalis and thank you for commenting thankful that you have found my blog and humbled that you think I am worthy of such a gorgeous award!

So like Dalis, and because I can't find the 'rules' for passing it on other than passing it on to 5 people, I am going to award it to people who may not know that they inspire me.

Belinda what can I say, love reading her blog, her real, down to Earth-ness and her scrappy stuff just makes me want to scrap more!

Crystal now this woman started out by inspiring me with her creativity but has since gone on to inspire me as a person. She has been through an amazing journey and has been gracious enough to share parts of it and I am inspired by the way she has handled the situations she has faced and in awe of her love life attitude.

Theresa just amazes me with her creations. Love what she does and how she does it!

Debra takes amazing photos FULL STOP! I read her blog and want to take photos

Sandra inspires me every time I see her comment or that she has been to visit my blog, wish I could hug her in real life!

Ok so now I have passed on the love and feeling so much better for it, here is a page I made today. It's of one of our nephews, Dave's middle brother's youngest, Memphis.

Been using up some of my older stash as it's been dragging me down, so I have turned that around and made it inspire me instead, feeling good to use it :)
Elizabeth had a physio session today, she did REALLY well, proud of her. So we keep on with what we are doing and go back in 2.5 weeks and will have an occupational therapy session then too. I dropped the other 2 girls off with Dave, while we went, and he ended up leaving work and going and buying thick shakes, which we had because he had just got them when we finished.
Megan is home tomorrow, yay, hopefully she will have a fun time on the plane ride home and then we will get to see all the photos she took, hear all her stories and give her a big BIG hug :0)
Pin It Now!
