Once again by complete surprise by blogging friends have touched me so deeply that feeling humble is just a small drop if the bucket of emotions created in my heart.

THANK YOU MISS KATE!!

Thank you Kate!!  For the Nomination of The Sunshine Award bestowed down upon me. You are so generous~

Since there are no absolute rules, no award police, no Grammy security, I am making an executive decision here. Because I can.

I am naming a Judges Choice Award for The sunshine award. Because this person lightens our days and nights with delightful stories regarding her sweet blonde toe head of a son. Part of the reason she is so engaging is her raw honesty. If you’ve not had the distinct pleasure of reading one of her posts you are in for a rare treat.

This lady has real, raw, and genuine talent.

The name of her blog is: WordsFallFromMyEyes ~

And boy do they ever!
