Double Honor

Humbly I share with you some recent blog awards I've been given.....

Pam over at Midnight Musings gave me this sweet award.

The rules are:
1) Give it to 3 special bloggers that have commented regularly from the beginning.
2) Give it to one new special commenting blogger.

Here are my three oldies but goodies:

Tori at A Home Away from Home has the first blog I started following. She's also the first missionary wife that I met through blogging. I got..err...stold many ideas from her!

Tabatha at The Bentley Bunch was the person who introduced me to blogging. She's commented regularly ever since. She's also provided a bed for me to sleep in about 4 million times while on deputation!

Sandy at The Valley of the Mountains is so sweet and encouraging. She's busy on deputation right now and doesn't comment like she use to, but I know she reads when she can and even better, she prays for me!

And here is my new bloggy friend:

Tricia otherwise known as fringegirl at The Domestic Fringe has really been a blessing to me and my family. Her father lives in Portugal, thus an immediate connection was made. She's hilarious and brutally honest. Two attributes I adore!

I am so grateful to all of you who take the time to leave a comment. It's what keeps us bloggers going. I went back and looked at my first few months of posting to see who my commenters from the beginning were, and I had a few months where I had no comments at all. I guess that was before I knew what a blessing comments were, so I didn't miss them.

This lemonade award was given me by fringegirl and TCKK.

I guess for my ability to make lemonade when God gives me lemons. I have 4 lemon trees in my yard full of lemons just waiting to be squeezed.

Thanks to all of you that sent awards my way. It's the best pat on the back a blogger can receive.

Thank you Nina! I do love's too bad I don't get any in "real" life. Oh well, I'll just enjoy this one. I've never seen this award before, so I'm quite taken with it. I love credit cards even if they're not real. It just makes me feel important.

Enjoy all that lemonade! I love your new header picture.

Awwww, thank you, Nina! I am honored indeed and so very blessed with your friendship. You know we always have a place ready for you and your family when you are in the States.... (how much longer????!)

And if I knew where to get and how to give bloggy awards, you would have one from me.... guess I have a challenge facing me. Google, here I come!

Hi Nina,

Sandy Sellers said...

Thank you Nina. I love you and your family very much. I pray it works out to see you on the "way to Nepal".
Talk to you later.

Tori said...

Aww, congratulations Nina!!
Thanks for the award, I'm so deeply touched. I couldn't have done it without all the little people, my hair and makeup lady, my set designer, personal assistant, and of course my adoring fans!

HAAA! Thanks Nina!

I love the picture in your header and by the way, you've been tagged!

Congrats on all your awards....and I love the picture of the fishing boat. My father-in-law was a commercial fisherman. He passed away suddenly a few years ago, so when I see a big boat like that, I think of him.

Keep blogging away! I can't wait to read what's next.
