Thanks Are Due

Overdue, actually.

Barbara deserves recognition for the beautiful scarf she sent me weeks ago. Isn't it a great color? And it's pashmina - so soft! She holds drawings for these often, so visit her through the link for your chance to win... but also to enjoy her special and serene corner of blogland. Thank you, Barbara!

I've been remiss in acknowledging some bloggy bling I've been given of late, too. Lynnette from Chatterbox Chit Chat gave me The Lemonade Stand award. (I know you've all seen it floating around, so I won't paste it here.) I so appreciate it! And I did see another award from someone recently - I thought it Lori? Argh, if I can't remember for sure (please correct me if I'm mistaken... ETA: Ack! It wasn't Lori. Was it someone else, or did I truly dream it?). Thank you! I was touched by your generous comments about SSW.
`
I can't get by without also thanking both Jody* and KS, who recently shared links to my post It's My Path. I'm so thrilled you thought its content worthy of sharing - and I appreciate the faces who popped in for a peep because of it, too.
`
I also want to say thanks to my constant supporters and welcome to my new followers! You all make my day, every day.
`
Have a great weekend, and a safe and blessed Memorial Day!

*(Jody recently signed with an agent! Send her some congrats, wouldja?)

Thanks, everyone! I used to curse my natural curl, but I suppose I've learned to like it. :)

You should post photos of yourself more often. You look so cute in all of them and it's so nice to get to so much better.

I am sorry to say that the award didn't come from me, but you do deserve all of them. You probably got all of them several times already. You're doing a wonderful job with this blog.

Janna Qualman said...

I wasn't going to heap a bunch of "thank you" comments onto a "thank you" post, but...

Lori, you're so full of wonderful things to say! Thanks!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Deb Shucka said...

Beautiful scarf! Have a wonderful weekend!

Amy Mullis said...

Well, I'm here to thank YOU. Catching up on my blog reading today, I realized that everywhere I went, you'd been there first, spreading caring and encouragement like peanut butter on bread. And it hit me that there have been times when I was discouraged or unsure or needed a boost to keep going and that was when you happened along to say just the right thing. I'm sure I'm with a lot of others when I say that you light our paths with sunshine. Thanks, Janna. *And that's as serious as I can be without going into withdrawal for one liners. :)*

Janna Qualman said...

So it's official: Everyone loves the scarf!! :D

Amy, wow. You've made my night. Thanks!
