I, too, was out surfing and reading my favorite blogs and I found that Jane over at, Cozy Reader, had nominated me for the "Blogger Reflection Award". I was struck speechless! Which doesn't happen very often. Being a new blogger, I feel so humbled and honored to have been nominated for this award. I know I don't deserve this, but I sure thank Jane for all the kind things she had to say about me.

This award was originated by a teenage girl and here are her guidelines:
As for my award, it is called The Blogger Reflection Award. Why? The reason for the title is because this award should make you reflect on five bloggers who have been an encouragement, a source of love, impacted you in some way, and have been a Godly example to you. Five Bloggers who when you reflect on them you get a sense of pride and joy... of knowing them and being blessed by them. This award is for the best-of-the-best so consider who you pick, carefully. This award should not be given to just anyone. If you're going to do the award don't just write a few words and slap it on your blog. Write real thoughts about these bloggers and what they've been to you, and if the bloggers you pick have already been given the award, don't be afraid to give to them again. They deserve it as many times as it's given.

It is very difficult for me to make my choice, but I'll give it a try. I nominate

Melanie at Our Happy Happenings

Melanie is a lovely young Christian woman, who loves and cares for her family deeply.
She is a encouragement to me every day. Her Christian values shine through all of her writings. She always has something kind to say on all of her comments to everyone! She loves her little girl with so much love, that you wish all the little girls everywhere had a Mommy like her! She also tries very hard to be a wife that her husband is proud of everyday! She is one sweet lady!! I am glad she is my friend!

Melli at Prevailing Insanity

Melli has recently joined the Lutheran Church and has committed her life to Christ.
I could write a page about her but I will try to keep this to a paragraph! She is one of the funnest ladies I know anywhere, and that has to be a gift from God! She too is a real encourager and she can lift your spirits in a heartbeat!! Even her comments to other people are a joy to read. She has been a help to me by her understanding about people who repeat themselves again and again! She needs more then this award for caring for her Mother who had Alzheimer's. I will leave that reward for her to our Heavenly Father! She is also has a caring heart and the gift of helping other folks,too! I am glad she is my friend!!

Cindy at Notes in the Key of Life

Cindy is lovely Christian lady! Her love for God shines through all the pages she writes. She suggests Christian books to read and reviews many of them so we can read and enjoy the ones she has chosen. She always is a encouragement to her friends and lifts up our spirit by just reading her blog. She is someone you would love to live close by and be able to share lunch with and talk for hours with, about all the authors she knows and the books you have both read. You really would love having her for a friend!

Daisy at Lazy Daisy log

I know, I know, Daisy has been nominated over at Jane's too! But the rules say you can nominated the same person many times they probably deserve it! NO probably here she does! If you look in the dictionary under "Daisy" it would say Christ Like! She has gone through so much of late and been so Good about it! She lives a Christian life daily and set an example for all of us!! She is a wonderful wife and Mother and a Friend to all!I would not have started blogging with out reading her blogs and Sandy's! I wanted to join in the fun and they have both given me a wonderful Welcome!
Daisy, we sure do love you!!

Sandy at Flip Flop Floozie

I know Sandy has this award ,too! She is one of the finest Christian women I have met in a long time! She has a heart that beats for God on every beat! It just comes out in all of her writings in her blogs daily! I have learn to love this lady over the months I have been keeping up with her blogs! IF you have her for a friend you certainly have friend indeed! She is a shining example to all of us! She cares for her husband and children and grandchildren with such Love, it is really nice to see in this day and age! I am so happy you are my friend!
