And the winners are...

It has taken a dreadfully long time for me to do this (partly because of being busy and partly because I am a novice who doesn't know how to do basic things on the computer, like save a pic from another person's post and then post it on my own, or place them the way I want,) but...finally! The winners of two blog awards:

This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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 eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

If you are not familiar with what the Lemonade Award is, the Lemonade Award is given by a previous winner to 10 people who have shown a great attitude or gratitude this week. It’s a great way to show these people that you appreciate them.
I am passing on the award to the following:

1. My dear friend Heather. She has been an amazing friend and mentor to me. I learn so much from her. She is constantly encouraging me and others.

2. My friend Prisca, whom I have been posting with for years. I hope she realizes how much she means to me and to the others who know her.

3. My almost cousin, Blessed Mama. She is mom to some of the cutest kids ever, and her posts are both entertaining and thought-provoking.

4. My other unofficial cousin, Busy Momma. Wonderful pics, great fashion sense, and good words.

5. Granny2Five, a lady who is full of grace and can smile at the future. Even in the midst of difficult times, her strength and humor never falter.

6. My friend Psyche. Not only does she always help me with food allergy issues, I admire her common sense and loving heart.

7. Rebecca, whose beautiful insight into God's Word has been an inspiration to me. I love seeing her family's adventures in God's creation. http://graceful

8. Chewymom, who doesn't know me, but whose posts I enjoy very much. I appreciate her perspective, and of course, her humor.

9. The incomparable Lady Maramalade. She is a gifted writer, fantastic mum, and wife of a minister, among other things, but dons every hat with grace.

10. Theresa, another friend from cyberspace. Her love for her children, even during the incredible stress of colic, shines so brightly.

11. Katie Kind, another one who has most likely never heard of me. She is another wise Christian mom whose writings have touched my heart.

(Yes, I know I did 11. Since I am combining two awards, I could technically make it 18, but if I am ever going to post this, I better do it now).

You won, now what?

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs, which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude! Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
3. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
4. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award .

Aw... thanks! I'm really sincerely touched! :)

Alas, I too am "technically challenged" as I like to call it. So I'll have to figure out how to post the logo and pass along the reward. Haha!
