Attitude of Gratitude Award

I am so pleased to receive this thoughtful gift from my  friend Cathy at The Stylish House. I have had her button posted on my blog since I first started this fun, endearing, amazing journey.  She is gracious and supportive and talented and creative. Thank you Cathy.

The Rules of Accepting and Sharing this Award
1. Put the logo on your blog or post
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show an attitude of gratitude
3. Link to your nominees within your post
4. Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received this award
5. Share the love and link to this post and the person who nominated you for the award.
Tell us how you've come to have an attitude gratitude.

     I am grateful for so much this evening.  First and foremost that life does do a quirky flip from day to day, and it is perfectly fine that these flips are sometimes startling and wonderful and scary and even sad.

     Isn’t that what gives our days color and texture and life? It is the same wonder I feel in having three wonderful adult daughters with unique qualities and gifts, having friends-new and old- that are consummately alike yet different. We are all alike and we are all different. I am so grateful for that.

So here’s to the flips!

I send this Attitude of Gratitude Award to:

Karen @ Ladybug Creek

Mrs. DD @ Domestic Designer

Kim @ My Domestic Bliss

Dixie @ French Lique, Texas

Marty @ A Stroll thru Life

Terrie @ Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity

Rechelle @ Walnuthaven Cottage

SusieQ @ SusieQ-A Work in Progress

Kathy @ Life in the Slow Lane

Dawn @ Life at Eventually Cottage

Lauren @ Three Hermanas

Elizabeth @ The Percival's

Congratulations! I just stopped by for a visit and decided to stay! I have found a kindred spirit...if white spray paint won't fix it, then get out the tubes of gold & silver leaf!!! My passion is blue and white...china, transferware, porcelain!

I look forward to getting to know you better..
Be blessed,

I just became a follower of your blog, though I have read if often in the past. I just read your story about the two visitors on your front porch - wow - they might have been angels. Hope things are going better for you now. Linda
