Special Award

Wow! I received my very first award! Thank you Terrie, you are the BEST!

Terrie at gave me this award and I am truly honored. Terrie and I met through RMS and a special message board ( love y'all. ) :) Terrie is a wonderful friend and a real treasure in my life. She loves her family, loves to garden and loves life in general. If you have not met Terrie, you are missing out on amazing person. Here's a peek at her Lil' Piece of Serenity:

Thank you Terrie for giving me this award, it means the world to me :) I am supposed to share this award with 5 other people that make my day. Here they are in no particular order:

Tootsie and I also met through RMS and she has become a wonderful friend. She has a knack with plants ( I think both her hands are completely ) She can make me laugh until I hurt. She is a remarkable woman. :)

2. Mary

Mary is a gem, she has a heart of gold and many great stories to tell. She is also an avid gardener and a wonderful friend. :)

Her name alone exudes warmth, doesn't it?
Caroline has a zest for life; her faith and her spirit are unfailing. She consistently brings a smile to my face every day with her morning devotionals and more. :)

Rue will probably receive this award many times and it is well deserved. She is always the first to welcome you and when you need her she is always there. She is an amazing friend and a talented decorator. Rue is an inspiration to many. :)

Picket will also receive this awards many times and is also a well deserved recipient. Another lady who I first met through RMS. I could not wait for her to come visit my spaces. She is honest and sincere and full of charm. She can also make me laugh until I hurt. :)

ALL of these woman have amazing character and love their families deeply.

Thank you ladies for making my day!

WELL NOW! stop your crying! you might drip on the keys and short out your computer!
I have heard that everything is bigger in Texas....including the tear drops! lol
You would be crying from laughing if you could see me right now. I was trying to move the sprinkler...and had the hose kinked so I wouldn't get wet...especially since I was having such a great hair day (for a change)....tripped on the other part of hte hose...landed in the only dog poop I missed picking up, and let the hose go...needless to say...I smell like dog poop AND my hair looks like dog poop! I have makeup all over the place...I am a mess...a stinky mess!
The woman next door says that it was the funniest thing she has ever seen, and that she is going to start keeping her video camera on her appearantly I am her live entertainment more often than not! you can laugh at me until you cry...I meant what I are very special to me...and I hope we stay in touch for a very long time!
hey....if you are ever in the mood to travel...come visit me in Alberta...I would love to listen to your accent!
You Americans have the best ones!
