Blog Award - It was an honor just being nominated!

Wow! This is actually the SECOND award I've received on my blog.  So I'll do my best to uphold the honor of the Sunshine award. I received this award from Tylaine @ Just Me. Thank you Tylaine, for thinking of my blog and hopefully I can live up to the challenge of keeping a positive attitude. I'm so glad Tylaine found me, and I followed back!  Of course, like most bloggers, she left such a sweet comment on my blog that I had to thank her and read hers . . . and then followed.  Thanks again for thinking of me!  I just want to take a few minutes and thank all the people who made this award possible . . . in alphabetical order . . . Anderson, Amy; Anderson, Carol; Anderson, William; Bailey . . . no seriously folks . . . this is the award!!

The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging world.”
Of course, awards come with rules…
1. Put the logo on your blog and/or within your post.
2. Pass the award on to twelve bloggers.
3. Link to the nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and the link to the person from whom you received this award

So who have I been inspired by on-line?  Hmmm!  That's a tough one, but  . . ."May I have the envelope, please?"
The nominees for the Sunshine Award are in no particular order:
Mollie @ As the Dryer Turns

Kerry @ Daughter of I AM
Stacy @ The lady behind the dust
O Mom @ From Home Straight to High School
Hannah @ Aspire

Charity @ Considering It All Joy
Denise @ Extreme Personal Measures
Extreme Personal Measures
Amy @ Living Locurto
Jennifer @ Life with the Lebedas

Tracy @ Three Peas and a Bean
Monica @ Pixel Perfect
Mollie inspired me to start blogging again, and I am forever grateful since I have met some truly amazing people. I have been inspired by some of them to break out my camera and start snapping again.  Thanks so much, Mollie.
Mollie, Stacy and Kerry are all real life friends from my church.  
Although Kerry moved away, her blog is inspiring and I highly recommend following it. 
Stacy and I don't got to the same church anymore, but once I love someone, it's hard for me to stop.  Her photography is so beautiful, she is so talented.  I just love looking at her latest creations on her blog.
O Mom, I think I met through Life at 7000 Feet, and her wonderful Top 10 on the Tenth blog hop.  I love her humor and her huge heart for her kids.  She inspires me to be a better mom.
Hannah and I just met on-line.  Her blog does inspire me, plus she has some really cool giveaways.
Charity's blog caught my eye because of her signature verse on her blog header  . . . my favorite. That's what drew me in, but once I read her sweet story I just had to follow.
Denise's blog is so creative and fun.  She has so many wonderful crafts and great ideas, I love it!
Amy and Jennifer have such creative blogs, how could you not be inspired after reading them?
Tracy, Monica and MckMama are like "rock stars" in the blogging world.  I love their photography and their wonderfully funny stories about their kids/lives!  Thanks for sharing with all of us!!

Congratulations to all of you who were nominated!  Now get out there and spread some sunshine of your own!  Make someone's Friday!
