I have such awesome readers. You all made me feel so much better yesterday. Thank you ALL for the well wishes and advice for taking care of myself and a sick babe. I love how I can just ask a question and get a ton of replies. :)
I can't even express how blessed I felt yesterday. Let me start by telling you about a post that I read by Rachel on 'selfless giving'. A friend of hers had brought her family dinner because her baby was sick and understood how much work that took. Love that. Well, my Aunt and Uncle brought over a plethora of goodies yesterday when I least expected it. Homemade chicken soup, crackers, croissants, juice, avocado (she knows I crave this when I'm sick) and even some fake limes....OK, the fake limes are for a glass container in my kitchen.
A meal you don't have to prepare is worth 16 times it's weight in gold when you're sick (and the baby, too.)
I'm happy to report that the baby is doing MUCH better. I'm kind of the same, but so much better now that the baby is almost back to her 100% self.
Some more THANK YOUs for some bloggers who have bestowed some wonderful awards to me. I'm horrible at posting awards and I'm trying to get better. :-) They sure make you feel nice.
Thank you Trish for this award... (oh and btw, she's today's featured blog on The Secret is in The Sauce!) **UPDATE** I just received this award again from fatgirlsskinny from Hello Skinny Jeans ... I feel SO loved! To translate the gift from Portuguese to English, it means: "This blog invests and believes, the proximity"[meaning, that blogging makes us 'close' -being close through proxy] Awwww! You're the bestest Trish!
Post this if/when you award this to others: "They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and friendship; they are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize, and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut or that they propagate?" Then let's try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to 8 bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text."
So, here are my 8 bloggers who will receive this award from me:
Mari from My Little Corner of the World
MamaGeek from What Works For Us
Rachel from Huse Blog is it Anyway?
Tommie from Tuesday Update
"The Queen" (I'm calling her) from Tiaras & Tantrums
Heather from "This is the day..." Ps 118:24
Jyl from Mommy Gossip
Holly from Tropic of Mom
A few days ago I was awarded this lovely award by Tiaras & Tantrums - There's a cute Meme that goes with it, but I'm horrible and don't have enough time to fill it out. So, I'm just going to pass the award on to 7 other blogs that I love. This is HARD because I LOVE so many blogs out there!!
Julia from Hooked on Houses
Amy from The Motherload
Ms. Tee from Delightful Home
Tabitha from Fresh Mommy
Fifi from Fifi Flowers Design Decor
Mommy from Mommy Cracked
Melissa from The Inspired Room
Sandra from Diary of a SAHM (yes, I know, I can't count...this is hard to limit it to 7)
I'm going to have to award this again later because, like I mentioned, there are WAY more blogs that I love!
