Acknowledgement, Recognition, Kudos, Woo Hoo's and Congratulations!

It's that time again for me to thank all the beautiful souls that have been so kind as to nominate this blog for awards. I apologize that it takes me so long sometimes to post them, acknowledge your kindness for receiving them and also to pass them along to inspire and encourage others.

1. The Mother of the Week Award ~ It was created by my creative and lovely husband to Steve. He has an idea one morning to create an award dedicated to the love, caring, compassion and hard work that goes into being a great mom and wife. He was nice enough to award it to me and I am truly honored. He will be passing this beautiful award on once a week to a mom that he will bless due to her hard work and dedication to raising a family. If you have never stopped by his blog, please do and give him a word of encouragement. Its so hard to find dedicated men who will blog as often as they can and one worthy of followers as well at Gotta Have Faith.

2. Beautiful Blessings Award ~ Given to me last week by Christina at Luvin This Life who was also the highlight of this weeks, Blog of the Week Award if you missed it on Sunday. It is given to blogs whose posts encourage and bless readers that stop by. This is what Christina had to say, "While her comments are always uplifting and encouraging, it is her blog, the thoughts that she shares, her incredible insights, that are truly a beautiful blessing." So it is with great pleasure that I pass this beautiful award on to the following people whose daily messages inspire, encourage, motivate and bless not only me but others that stop by as well.

1. Kathleen at Sassy Granny
2. Tiffany at Tea with Tiffany
3. Lisa at Sharing Life with Lisa
4. Candee at Encouragement for the Journey
5. Rosel at Off the Beaten Trek

Please visit them and encourage them with your comments today as you stop by and visit. Ladies, please pass this along to 5 bloggers who really inspire you each day.

3. Friendship Award ~ I received this beautiful award from Debbi at For Your Tears, who has a beautiful ministry for parents of children that leave our earthly homes far too early. If you have never stopped by her heartwarming blog, please do so. You will find solace, peace and blessings when you do. For those receiving this award it is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to six bloggers who must choose six more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award. So without further hesitation, here are my selections:

1. Steven at Gotta Have Faith
2. Greg at Greg's General Store
3. Loren at The Magoos News
4. Kat at Art's Chili
5. Daveda at Grace Talk with Daveda
6. Susan at This Day

Ladies and Gentlemen, please pass this heartwarming award on to those who fit the criteria for this award and bless them with this beautiful gift of friendship.

Have a glorious and blessed Tuesday and make a difference in the life of someone today but offering them a random act of kindness, whether it is a smile, holding the door open for someone, or offering a passing Hello to a neighbor!

Again, Kat, thank you so much. Thank you, Lord.

Your life reflects one of giving to others. Your kindness and care is contagious. Thank you for being such a bright light here online and beyond. You are HIS. And I'm thankful to know you here. Would love to meet you and your family here on earth. Wouldn't that be fun?

I'll share this soon. I can't keep up with your kindness.

You are precious.
