Happiness - Part I

One of My Reasons for Being Very Happy~

Monday morning, I have a comment on my blog from Lidy saying - come over when you get a chance - The French Sweetheart gave me a
"You Make My Day" Award ~

Now, how nice is this? I had a case of the blues and Lidy really turned
things around ~ Thank you, sweet friend!

I'm feeling on top of the world and wanting to thank
"The Academy" and it dawns on me...

The hardest part (so very hard)
“Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about Blog Land. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times.”

I can't even begin... How many times I've tried to type what I love about each
one of you, and you know me ~ yes, it turned into a book. I can go on AND on~
Be it ever so difficult for me to stop talking/typing~ I am going to list you
special bloggers and your blogs that lift my heart every time I visit
...or we'll be here forever... or I may run out of space!

You know what you mean to me and why ~ just read all those
comments I've left to you over and over...

THANK YOU for all the happiness and inspiration
~you've given to me~

Nancy, Fete et Fleur
Rachel - A Romantic Porch
Jo-Anne - Vintage Rose Collection
Kim - Daisy Cottage
Cielo - The House in the Roses
Shannon - Paint Mine Pink
Amy - Razz Pizazz Boutique
Jennifer - The Old Painted Cottage
Pam - Art and Soul
Fifi - Chez Fifi

Okay, that was a job in itself - thank you for all your friendship and inspiration~

I do want to say a little about Fabulous Fifi. I know
you're so, so busy working on the Romantic Country Magazine
and all of your other projects ~ but I HAD TO add you.
Like Lidy and Kim, you have been there for me~
before the beginning of my blog and encouraged me so.

I carried an extra copy of Romantic Living Magazine~
The one with all the beautiful toile on the cover, in my car
to get me through the day at my corporate office job ~ all so I could
look forward to doing the one thing I was passionate about
...That is one faded cover now, it carried me through
many a day of not wanting to do what I was doing~
It's "my trophy"


If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to
live the life which he has imagined,
he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
-Henry David

Dear sweet Tracie,

Thank you so much for the beautiful award. You have such a generous heart.

By the way, I've enterered your name in my Pampered Package Giveaway on my blog!


A Romantic Porch said...

Oh Tracie, You are such a sweetheart, and to think I've only had my blog for ONE MONTH! That I would have inspired you in that amount of time, is touching to me. I am so truly honored that you would think of me in this way.

Girlfriend, we may really really need to talk! You should see my ragged tattered magazines. (giggling) I may have found myself a "wear out our magazines soul sister"! If there is such a thing! We could probably start up an online support group! (think about that this week while you are thinking your other thoughts!)

In all sincerity,from the bottom of my heart, thank you for sending this bit of happiness my way. I had no idea that it would be people like you who would make this blog world be so amazing.

Have a wonderful day. Love,Rachel
