THE LEMONADE AWARD
Wow, I finally did it. I tried to copy and paste, no go. So finally kept messing around and here it is. Sherry, that lovely lady at Edie Marie's Attic http://ediemariesattic.blogspot.com/,gave me this award. Here are the rules: 1. Put logo on your blog.
2. Nominate at least 8 blogs that show great attitude or gratitude!
3. Link the recipients to your post.
4. Let them know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and the person from whom you received this award.
Sherry is one of the wonderful people I have met in Blog Land, she has a generous and loving heart. She loves her family and pets and does what she can to make sure they know it, I believe she is more of a giver then a taker. This is also one talented lady, if you need a special little plaque check her out. She can paint you something wonderful. Special signs for your little one's room, maybe you have a business and want something unique for your door??
Enjoy the award my friends and lets keep on making that lemonade!!!

Barb,

When I was young, Grandma taught me this lesson, though she put it another way. "Always look for the silver lining in every cloud," was her motto.

Congratulations on the award. You are very deserving.

I didn't know you had an interest in writing. I have written since elementary school when I won a contest for an essay. I have been published in print and online venues. Be sure to check out Chicken Soup and submit a story to them. They are always looking for people to write stories from the heart and they have some great upcoming books. Take a look here:

You can also find the guidelines and other information about submitting stories on the site.

Follow you dreams. Take a chance. You just might be surprised.

Blessings,
Mary

Hi Barb,
I love your house! I know I have said that before but its true.
Not sure what a lemonade award is, but congrats to you on getting it. And also for figuring out how to cut and paste and move things around. I haven't figured that out yet.

Congrats on a much-deserved Award! I always enjoy stopping by and seeing what's going on in your neck of the woods. And I second what Mary says, I'll bet you have some great stories to tell for Chicken Soup!

Congrats on the award! Yes, it will be lemonade weather before we know it! I love lemonade in the summertime...and sweet lemonade! I already have that award posted on my sidebar, but I will add your name to it. Thank you! I gave out 3 awards to my readers a few posts ago in the Glen Miller post, so come on by and grab them for your sidebar! Your blog is so deserving of them!!!

Have a great weekend coming up with you hubby! Know it will be a fun time spent together for both of you. I remember when my husband travelled a lot when the kids were still at home...we missed him so much all those times he was gone. We always made homecomings special for him.
