Pay It Forward Award

Shawn, at The Becker's (Shawn and Bill), bestowed upon my humble blog the Good Bloggers Pay It Forward award. If you are not familiar with Shawn, then get yourself over there for a visit!  You'll always leave feeling encouraged or uplifted.  Shawn always provides positivity and a bright outlook on life! 

Ok, so here are the rules:

1.  Mention the blogger who gave you the award (see paragraph above)
2.  Link to their blog (see paragraph above).
3.  Pay It Forward to 5 bloggers.

Numbers 1 and 2 were taken care of in the first paragraph. Number 3 is the one that always gives me such a fit because I just want to give things to everyone.  However, when I put them up, y'all won't take them.  So, I have decided on a new way for this one-  I simply took the first 5 blogs that popped up in my sidebar that have less than 200 followers.  So please take a few minutes and go visit these blogs!  There's something delightful at each of them be it humor, encouragement, understanding, travel, creativity, family, etc so, if you feel a follow coming on, go ahead and follow them!

The heat is ON this morning!  Which means I have a legit excuse to sit in the air conditioning and read blogs!  Yay for HOT weather!  Wait...


  1. Blogger is really acting up over here. It´s hard to comment again. I hope this goes through.
    Congrats to the award. I know you are a good blogger, so you deserve it. :)

  2. A good blogger deserves to be recognized...I always have such a good time at your place!

    Thanks for the shout out...I like your 'pay it forward' method. I think I'll adopt it.

  3. Betty-There are some other people still struggling with it too. And Blogger makes it so hard to get in touch with them. Thanks! You're too sweet!

    Beverly-You're welcome!

    Betty- Great!

    Stephanie-Thank you! Sounds like a plan!

  4. Congrats! You deserve it.


  5. Congrats on the award! I love your idea for passing it on! As much as I appreciate getting an award from a fellow blogger, I struggle every time with just who to pass it on to. I think most of us do... Now, thanks to you, I'm off to visit some new friends!

    Fantastic idea!

    Desiree- You are too kind and I am blushing! Thank you so much!

    This- The good news about the heat is that our air conditioning is working! Thank you!
