Catching up on awards....

Yes, once again I'm behind but not only on posting this time but on picking up my awards. I apologize for the delay. So without further ado....

First an award from my dear caring friend, Betty, who checks up on me if I'm MIA!! She first leaves a comment, then an email, and if she still hasn't heard from me she calls on the phone to make sure I'm okay and to let me know she is praying for me. How sweet is that? How sweet is this award?


Thank you so much, Betty, for the award and for being my friend. You are so special to me!

Then I got a comment from Mike saying he had a special award for me on his blog. He has given me this award because he says I have been a help to him. Mike has so many health problems he is dealing with daily but he still takes time to check on me and pray for my needs. Mike, thank you so much for this award and for being the wind beneath my wings too!


Last but not least is this special award from Brandy that made me cry! Here is what she had to say about me and the award:

Hope this is for you! You have been a rock in my life lately, you have been there for me when I have been faced with tough challenges with the kids. You have taught me so many things in the last few weeks. I know that you are in my life because of Daniel, but you know I don't talk to a lot of his family, I don't know them that well. I am glad that you are in my life and I have a great friend to talk to about important things and I want you to know that I really look up to! I know that God has put you here for a reason and I thank him for doing that to! So this is for you. I am calling it the rock award!

Rock Award--Brandy

Some of you have wondered what connection Brandy and I have to each other. Brandy's husband, Daniel, is my great nephew and has always been very special to me. I use to babysit him when he was a little boy and he spent a lot of time at my house, growing up with my children. He has always been like a little brother to them. Here is a picture of Daniel, Brandy and their 3 sons. I have always called the boys Huey, Dewey and Louie. (Donald Duck's nephews for those of you who aren't old enough to remember the cartoon! LOL) In this case, these 3 boys are my great, great nephews!! How old does that make me feel?? :O)

Daniel and family

Brandy and I have know each other for years now but have been developing a closer relationship in the last few months. A lot of this, believe it or not, was due to blogging!!
We have become coffee buddies too and have been trying to find time to have Bible study together. We have done a lot of our study over the phone!

It says COFFEE

Brandy, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the Rock Award. I love it and I love you! Let's do coffee and Bible study soon!
