My First Blog Award!

I know, it's sometimes the little things in life that can make us smile. Like getting your first blogging award or a new follower. Or comments!! Thank you so much to Waiting and Wishing for awarding me the "Virtual Hugger" award. I would give it right back to you, too, because your comments have been so sweet and amazing.

Here are 3 reasons why I love comments:

  1. It lets me know that I am not alone out here. There are other women all over the globe experiencing miracles and heartbreak both, but we are in this together and we are here to support each other. I love to know someone is listening and someone cares enough to leave a comment and let me know I'm not completely crazy. :)
  2. Sometimes, comments open my eyes to a new way of looking at things. Maybe there's a side to the story or situation I hadn't thought of yet. I like having the expertise of fellow friends and bloggers available to me through comments.
  3. They just plain make me feel better. When I'm having a bad day or feeling really emotional, your comments make me feel loved and supported. It really means a lot to me!
Now, as part of the rules, I'm supposed to pass this award on to 10 of my top commenters... Um. The only problem with that is I don't really have 10 people who comment and/or read my blog, haha. However, there are some really special people I would love to give a shout-out to. You may have already received the award from another blogger, so no pressure to re-do your virtual hugger post, but I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your comments! 

Here are the official rules:

1. Thank the person who gave it to you, and link back.
2. Give three reasons why you LOVE comments.
3. Award your top ten commenters, and let them know about it.

And the awards go to.....

  1. Diana at Bun(less) in the Oven 
  2. LC at Still Dreaming (I know you already got it, but you deserve it twice!)
  3. K at A Cup of Tea
  4. LisaL at TTC Fatty
  5. Kristen at Buck Up, Buttercup
  6. I would give one to my Mom too, but she doesn't have a blog, haha. Thanks Mom for reading and commenting and always supporting me. I love you!
And thank you to all you wonderful ladies who comment on my blog and help me keep my spirits up. And thanks for blogging your own stories. You're an inspiration to me, every one of you.


  1. Yay!!!!! Thank you so much - you are so sweet. I really enjoy reading your blog. There are some blogs that I just relate better to and yours is one of them. I'm going to pass the award on during my 2WW! Maybe it will keep me distracted (haha...yeah right!)

  2. Awww, thank you soooooo much for the blog award! You're too sweet. I might not repost it...I'm kinda weird about these things for some reason...but I truly, truly appreciate it. :)
    Hope you have a great weekend!
