You tolerate me! You really tolerate me!

Two awards in one week! How could one gal get so lucky? You all must really tolerate me!

Kristin, a busy working mom to 2 teens and 2 little girls from China, at A Family is Forever presented me with The Friendship Award.
friend award
"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find friends and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships will be propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly- written text into the body of their award."

I feel really honored to receive this award. I hate to admit that I don't have many friends in real life but I'm really enjoying getting to know other bloggers and forming friendships through cyberspace.

The friends that I would like to pass on this award to are:
JD at Infinite Adventures @ the Zoo
Shosh at Day by Glorious Day
Tim at Fort Thompson
Jane Anne at Gravity of Motion
Alicia at More Than Words
Kristin at P A J A M A M A M A
Donnetta at Life in the Fast Lane

Donnetta at Life in the Fast Lane, my newest blogging friend, is a mom to 3 kids and presented me with the Life is Grand Award.
According to the rules, I'm to list 5 reasons that I think life is grand and pass this award on to 5 friends.

I think life is grand because:
1. All my immediate and extended family members are blessed with good health.
2. My boys are happy and well-adjusted and loved and lovable.
3. I am married to a wonderful husband and papa.
4. I've 'met' so many new friends through blogging...I enjoy reading about others' experiences and relating to other mamas.
5. People actual read my blog and give me comment love.

The bloggers that I pass this award to are:
Kristin at A Family is Forever
Denise at There is Always Room for One More
Kami at My A Team
Lisa at Oh Boy...Oh Boy...Oh Boy

I really wish I had time to write up a description of all the blogs I mentioned for the two awards but I am beat! I can honestly say that I read and enjoy them all on a daily basis.

Whew! All this adoration (to me and from me) is exhausting. Now I'm off to go parade around my house in a plastic tiara blowing kisses and waving like a beauty pageant contestant to my confused sons.

Thanks again for the awards, Kristin and Donnetta.
