Blessed Sunday!

I woke up this morning "counting all of my blessings"! What a grand day it is...having my honey home to share the day with me...a cool sunny morning...and a fresh hot cup of coffee! I don't know if it really ever gets any better than this! Except to find that I've been awarded the "Kreativ Blogger" Award...hehe! Rose over at "A Santamaker's Journey" was so gracious to give me this award...thank you, dear sweet Rose!!! If you haven't ever been over to Rose's place...please stop by for a visit...I assure you that you won't be disappointed! She is one of the most talented and creative women that I know at Blog Land! Ohhh my....you really do need to see her beautiful home...decorated in my beloved French Country Flair!!! Here is the link to Rose's place...http://santamakersjourney.blogspot.com/

The rules of the "Kreativ Blogger" Award are as follows:
Acknowledge the person who sent it to you.
Pick 6 people who deserve this award to tag.
List 6 things you value and 6 that you don't:

"Six Things That I Value"

1. My Faith....Without my faith in God, where would I be! The Lord is the keeper of my life!

2. My Family....My beloved husband, Russell! All of my children...Lisa & Tony, Aimee & Jay, Jenni & David, Darrin, and Danielle! All of my grandchildren...Tony Jr., Alex, Adam Christopher, Noah, Emiliee, Ryan, Ethan, Erick, Seth, and Caylee! They are what I live for!!!

3. My Friends....I have some of the most wonderful & caring friends....I especially value all of my cyber friends who have become so near and dear to my heart!

4. My Home....it is my little piece of Heaven here on Earth!

5. My health...I thank the Lord daily for my health!

6. My Extended Family....my folks, my Sis....

"Six Things That I Do Not Value"

1. Bad Attitude...pessimistic attitudes, "Woe is Me" attitudes, "I'm better than you..." attitudes.

2. Predjudice....of any type!

3. Dishonesty....can sink a ship!

4. Verbal and/or Physical Mistreatment....literally makes me sick to my stomach...especially when it involves children!!!

5. Apathy....I'm a pretty passionate person! Apathy frustrates me!

6. Unpatriotic....If you don't like this great country, go live in Iraq or someplace similar!!!

The six people that I would like to share this award with are some of my favorite "Kreativ Bloggers"! A couple of these ladies (Lynne & Gloria) are just embarking on their Blog Land journey...please stop by and give them a grand welcome and an encouraging word!!!

Kristen over at "Kristen's Creations".....http://kristenscreationsonline.blogspot.com/

Lynne over at "Lynne's Gifts from the Heart".....

Susan over at "Between Naps on the Porch".....

Lynette over at "Lynette's L.A.M. Blog".....

Gloria over at "Happy To Be".....

Mary Ellen over at "Mary's (megardengal) Meanderings".....

I hope that everyone is having a wonderfully blessed Sunday! Don't forget to take time and count your blessings...it's a GRAND day!!!

Love ya'll,

Hi Chari - Just stopping by to see how you were doing and to say "Hi". I'm making the rounds this morning, visiting all my fav blogs and you are top on my list. I'm still waiting for THE bench. Have a couple of ideas for my blog when it does finally show up. My sis did some checking and UPS sent it to New York!! Whatever!!
Anyway, just wanted to drop a quick hello - talk with you later.

Hi Chari, I am back!I have tried for the past 4 days to leave a comment on rms to no avail. Duh! forgot about the blog. I unfortunately brought back an unwanted souvenir and have be very ill the past 3 days, my brain is still in a fog. Getting better though. I can see from your list your priorities are so right on. But I already knew that. You have such a beautiful spirit, it is relflected not just in your home but in your beautiful words you leave others. Thankyou for just being YOU! Love ya Kathysue

Lynette said...

I was stopping by to visit one of my favorite RMS decorators! I tried 4 times to leave a note there with no success so will do so here instead! theres more than one way to skin a cat or is that to pluck a rooster- never good with sayings!!!

I woke up to snow this morning so fall is already over for us! Did manage to get 16 pints of applesauce made from the apples I picked at my brothers orchard!

I did post my guestroom on my blog if you have a chance to stop by and I promise I will get to that wonderful award you left me! Thanks for thinking of me!!

Blessings to you!
