CR: On Love and Awards

I am not a celebrator of Valentine’s Day, generally, but I have this desire to say Happy Pre-Valentine’s Day to all of you! This is the day when, in classrooms everywhere, children exchange cards and candy. So, you are like my classroom and I am an old 7 year old.

You stop in to read, It makes me believe that friends are near and far At the end of this week You will all have a treat because chocolate will go on sale. (Not perfect, but you get the point)

Happy Pre-Valentine's Day!

One of my friends far and near, is Natalie, at Mommy On Fire, and this girl is! If you have not, you should check her out. She gave me a fun award this week and I really love the meaning of it. It is the Sunshine Award for people who offer just a little ray of sun into your life.

If you choose to participate (no pressure, you are my sunshine for the week regardless), here are the technicalities of the award. Each award has its little quirkies...

1) Put the logo within my blog or on my post 2) Pass the award onto 12 fellow bloggers 3) Link the nominees within my post 4) Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog 5) Share the love and link to the person whom you received this award from

Could you play, “You are my sunshine, my only sunshine...”, in your heads while I give the list? These are people who shared their sunshine with me this week.

Victoria @ Let The Son Shine (I think that worked out well for the Sunshine Award) Christy @ Critty Joy Kristen @ On The 3rd of December Andrea @ Over Grace and Under Coffee Lauren @ Living By Faith Amy @ Filled With Praise Joyeful @ The Joyeful Journey Kara @ kara with a k Jessica @ These Are The Days Jenn @ A Country Girl’s Ramblings Patty @ Blessed Moon (What a great McLinky party she had last weekend!) Brookie @ The Mountain Brooke (She was right, I did not work out last Friday.)

That is a lot of people! Hope that you have time to visit them.

Thanks to Andrea, at Under Grace and Over Coffee, for another round of Caffeinated Randomness!
