Awards and Wanderings

<------ That right there is an award that Joni and Karen M. very kindly awarded me for my blog. Thank you both very much for believing that my blog is deserving.

I've never done the award thing before because I've never felt my ramblings were deserving, so why am I doing it this time, you ask?
Well, because my photo challenge for bloggers idea, the idea I've tried before and failed at, the one that took off this time due to the enthusiasm and prodding of Miz Donna and Miz Sally, IS truly Brilliant and I love that so many wonderful folks have joined us in having fun with our cameras.

So now I'm supposed to be passing it on to 7 more bloggers who I feel shine with Brilliance, so I decided to choose a few of my oldest and dearest blog friends who have hung with me through thick and thin.

Marylou, wonderful sister, wonderful friend, delightful writer, and wise lady of the west coast. She's laughed and cried with me many times, I know this and I love her for it.

Phyllis, baby sister of Marylou, full of enthusiasm for The Lord and her family, everyone's friend, and the best events organizer on the west coast!

Kat, the one who pulled me into the world of blogging, dear, sweet, friend, the person who tells it like it is, and was, brilliant writer, makes me laugh longer and harder than anyone I know, I love her.

Tine, sweet and gracious hostess, brilliant photographer, delightful friend, the only blogger I've ever had the priviledge to meet.

Jazzi, living proof that the world can throw the worst at you and you can take life's ugly and make it beautiful, loving mother, wife, and grandmother, and friend. Love her!

Cassie-B, our most educational blog bud, provides the most delightful details and little surprises about anything and everything. I love visiting to see what this lovely lady has to share.

Ed, is an inspiration, loving family man, loves God unconditionally, and has such a way with words!

Each and every one of my blog buds and photo challenge friends over there on my side bar are worthy of this award, someday, when you have the time, pop over and visit them to see why I love stopping in to visit them.

Donna said...

Hooray for your award!!!!!!! I discovered your photo challenge from the delightful Miz Donna in Texas-land. It took me a while to decide to commit to it, and now I am glad that I did. See how much joy you have brought to a whole new world of people? See how you have challenged others to stretch themselves, THINK, and share? You should be beaming!

Sally said...

Not only did you deserve the award for the photo challenges, but also for being such a wonderful friend!!

After I saw that you had already awarded Jazzi, I checked out ML and Phyl; we would have duplicated three!!!

You're such an uplifting person Ms. Brenda, and I value our friendship so much!

Hope you're having a great day!! ((HUGS))

Joan said...

Congrats Mizz Brenda. You surely deserve it. I love coming in here to see whats new with the grandkids and you. Also, lets not forget you like to change your template almost as much as me.

One day I will join in your photo challenge, but I don't want to start something I can't finish, and I always seem to be so pressed for time.
