I've been HONORED!!

Barb over at Grits and Glamour and KD over at Southern Whimsy have BOTH bestowed upon me this most precious award. I am such a doofus that I didn't realize that Barb had passed it to me the other night(Sorry Barb!) I can't tell you how touched I am to receive this. After all, us mamas need all the reassurance we can get. Especially on the days when we feel we are doing a less than stellar job! Sometimes we forget that our kids will make mistakes and screw up and it is not a reflection of our parenting but part of their journey. Isn't it difficult to remind ourselves that our identity is not theirs? To learn something valuable we must make the mistake that will carry us forward. But as loving mothers it is hard to stand by and watch them go through this growth.
Thank You Barb and KD for giving this to me just when I needed it!

Now it is my GREAT honor to pass this along to those whom I think by the looks of their blogs have a great time with their children. Love and enjoy them. Exhibit unconditionally the qualities of motherhood.

First, I would like to forward this award to Kori, over at This is the Life of the Bates Family. You can tell her kids are just the highlight of her life! I am very lucky to have her as one of my "blog buddies"!

And my second award goes to Susan Brewer at Standing on Faith. Susan has been through such a horrible loss, but through it all, she has been the best Mama that I've ever known! You deserve this award more than anyone!
I love you Susan!

"This is an award for being a wonderful Mom
You do fantastic work
Be proud of your accomplishments!"
