Thank You So Much......

I am honored and thrilled to receive from Shari and Mel, The Proximidade Award. From what I know this is a Portuguese Award and it means this blog invests in and believes that blogging makes us close. As it was explained to me from Shari, it is like sending a big hug to someone. Now here are some other meanings of the award…

This blog invests and believes in Proximity- nearness in space, time and relationships.
These blogs are exceedingly charming.
These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends .
They are not interested in prizes for self-aggrandizement!

How touched was I to receive this award, as my number one rule in my home is to be kind…

Now I know that many of you already have this award, but one can never have too many hugs!!
So, it goes without saying, I give this back to Shari and Mel

However, I would also like to send a BIG HUG to the wonderful gals, I spend my morning cup of coffee with. I enjoy you blogs, comments and friendship more than I can say. You are an inspiration to me, with you works of art , you wonderful sense of humor and with all the kindness you share with me. Thank you and please accept this award, my dear friends.

It would be wonderful if you placed this on your blogs and sent a HUG to someone today!

Have a wonderful weekend and try to stay warm. No school today, wind chill -25 to -35.

  5. What a nice award to receive! Good for you!

    Thanks for the blog visit to my sewing room! You can come fondle my fabric anytime!

    I loved hearing "Mack the Knife" on your site. It really brought back wonderful memories of my Dad and me dancing at Chez Renee Super Club in Santa Fe when I was growing up. It was "our" song. Thanks so much---

  6. Well deserved awards! It was cold here too. School was not cancelled. As a teacher I always hoped for school cancellations too, but they didn't happen very often. The kids do spend the day indoors and don't go outside for recess in such extreme cold weather.
