The envelope please!

My heartfelt thanks to Theresa of Cottag Violets for presenting me with this sweet award! I have a confession to make...I'm not always the most conscientious person when it comes to what I say. I often open my mouth without thinking, speaking my foremost thoughts without considerating the consequences thereof. I have always had what Southerners call a 'sassy mouth'---and have often paid a high price because of it. Somehow I have always felt a need to assert myself brashly, as if I've been afraid of being insignificant, unimportant, unseen. I have learned that it isn't necessary to 'force' my presence so loudly, and although it is a daily lesson, I truly appreciate the ease of just being me. Sometimes I AM loud, boisterous, silly, passionate and brash. But I am also at times timid, reserved, subdued and calm.....and that's just fine with me! Theresa, I don't have the words to express my gratitude for 'bringing this home' for me.
Of course I'm returning this to Theresa. I would also like to present it to all the ladies on my link list. I know, it seems like sort of a cop out, but the fact is that each and every one of you have touched, inspired, encouraged, supported and otherwise made my day in so many ways! xoxoxo

Thanks so much..... Hey, did you change your blog. I don't remember it being this beautiful. Especially the banner/logo/header (whatever) part. I love the bunch of blue roses under the bee. It suits you southern sister.
Maybe it was always like this and I had a brain stall, lol.
Have an incredibly cheery day. I put your bloglink on my blog. Hope that's okay.

HI Andie,
I just stopped in to say HI. I think you should get an award for a delightfully creative vocabulary. See you at the cofee chat.
