My new friend Deby at Apples of Gold awarded me with an award! Don't you just love getting awards? I do! I don't think a person can have too many or be encouraged too much. Especially women! We are so giving and so often don't get the recognition that we deserve. So thank you Deby! You are such a blessing and have made my day!
In thinking who to pass this award on to I had a hard time deciding. I have so many wonderful blogger friends who are so encouraging to me. But one special friend came to mind. She and I met in July 2005 on an online forum. We started emailing and have become the closest of friends. I have never met this lovely lady but we have talked many times on the phone and email almost every day. I feel like she is my biggest cheerleader. She is also straight forward with me and, when I ask her advice, she tells me the truth. I appreciate that so much.
This lovely lady is so talented. She has such a flair for decorating and her home is a sweet, welcoming place. I've only seen pictures but can't wait to visit in person. She is also a fabulous cook! The reason I know this is because she always tells me what she's been baking or cooking. She's also a great mom, who in later years in life, took on the responsibility of adopting two beautiful children into her family in addition to the other 5 children that she had already raised.
My dear friend lives on Old Crow Farm in Kansas and if you haven't guessed already it's Sher! You can visit her blog at Old Crow Farm. Sweetie, I am so blessed to have you in my life! Thank you for being such a great friend and such an encouragement to me. You deserve the Encouraging Blogger Award! Love you bunches!
