Yes indeed, it’s Award time! In fact, it’s past time! I’m late giving out these wonderful awards that were so graciously bestowed upon me by my blogger friends. Please bear with me while I give out FIVE awards!
If you are nominated for an award, or receive an award, you can choose to accept it. If you accept it, you may choose to pass it on. These awards are given to you because you have shown characteristics that are desirable as an “author/creator” of a blog, and for the message your blog presents to the blog community and the world.
I appreciate all those who have visited my blog, chosen to follow me, commented or “liked” a post. I am grateful for every one of you! You give me the confidence to try new things, to polish my skills, and to keep on posting. Thank you so much. Judy
