Mamapedia apparently thinks I'm worthy of their attention! I'm definitely going to contribute something after these first few crazy weeks of school. Yes, we teachers went back to work today! I THOUGHT that I'd be less stressed this year about going back to work. WRONG! I think I've been worse than ever! But I do feel better after one work day under my belt.
But back to Mamapedia! I'm thrilled to have any other blog recognize that mine is worth reading!!
This lovely award came from Maria at Personalized Sketches and Sentiments. If you haven't visited Maria's blog yet, you need to do so! She is funny and engaging, and is a very talented artist to boot!
According to Kathie at my net finds, she recently created the award for the following reason:
I made this award for the special bloggers who take the time to not only read my posts, but also leave comments, respond to comments, form blog friendships with and support others, answer blogger questions, etc.....the ones who are a real "gem" in the bloggy world. The bloggy world wouldn't be the same without you!
The only rule for this award is that to accept it, display it proudly on your blog for all the bloggy world to see your greatness and/or pass it on to other bloggers as you see fit.
So if you are reading this, folks, I want to bestow it to you! I've come to realize that many more people visit my blog than actually comment. I'd love to change that, and hear from you personally--each and every one!
Well, maybe not if you're gonna be mean to me.
But everyone else, let me know who you are and where you're from so I can visit you back! I'm very honored to not only be a recipient of this award, but to get it only 4 days after it was created! I feel incredibly special!
These forms of recognition were certainly the 'blog hugs' (as Maria referred to them) that I needed to feel right now! What a blessing the bloggy world is to me!
