Here are the rules:
1. Thank who gave it to you and post the rules
2. Copy the award in your blog
3. List 3 things you love about yourself
4. Post a picture or quote you love
5. Tag 3-5 people you wish to pass this award to.
Okay, so I did #2. Check.
#1. Well, what can I say? I am, for once, speechless. Okay, I'm not and I so much appreciate my first award! In Blogland! In life! Thank you so much to one of my new friends, Simply Casual (dash) Cottage, for tagging me for this award. Completing the requirements in the rules is a good exercise in my computer skills and I so appreciate her honoring my "beginner's" blog with this award.
#3. This is hard. Harder than the cutting and pasting and linking, but I will list three things I love about myself: I try to stay positive. I like to experience new things. My family is the most important thing in my life. Whew.
#4 My favorite quote at this time has to do with perseverence and resilience:
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall." - Confuscious
#5 The easiest part of all! Three people I would like to tag because they are the three who inspired me to get started in this crazy blog business and I thank all of them for that:
Thanks to all of you! Are there any more rules....
I feel somewhat official now.
