Thank You Cindy Bee

I received the Liebster Award from Cindy Bee The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm.  Leibster means favorite in German, I found this description from a comment left by Fiona on Cindy Bee's post about the award.  I want to thank Cindy for the award I truly am grateful.  I am to pass it on to five bloggers that have less than 200 followers.  Here is the thing.  I am sure I visit at least five blogs that have less than 200 followers when I am hopping around blog land. Often.  But I like to follow the rules and it seems you should have a close blogging relationship with another blogger to give an award.

Cindy and I have been visiting each other almost from the time I started my blog.  She even commented that I was the first person that had left a comment on her blog, which I do not remember, but I believe her.  I enjoy her truthfulness and the way she tries to get us to think about what she is posting about.  And she is a Bee Keeper, I do not think I have ever met a Bee Keeper that I did not like!  So Cindy would be one of my picks.  Back at you Cindy Bee!

I also have two other blogger friends that have been wonderful to spend time with since we began our blogging time together. Happy Mrs C who is a faithful friend and wonderful teacher and I Wish I Were a Walton who always comes by for a visit and I love seeing her gardens, antique and flea market finds, and she always goes on the best girlfriend day trips.

I would love to meet each of you in person and expect someday I just might.  I drive right by Cindy Bee's home place when I go visit my family and expect the next time to "make time".  Mrs C and I have talked often about meeting up somewhere and I would love to travel to the state of Washington to meet Holly and do some junking together.  So ladies here is your award.
Since I did not follow the exact directions you do not have to pass it on.  Just accept it and know how much I appreciate your friendship!

Here I am back to make a revision.  I want to share this award also with Bonnie at City Home/CountryHome where I come across some of the most fabulous recipes.  You must be ready to print out or pin each one she shares because they all sound so good and need to be tried!  She has four daughters and I think that is what drew me to her because I raised three daughters myself.  Mothers with daughters we have a bond. 

I may be revising this for days!

Blessings from our house in the woods to yours!

Than you, thank you and thank you again!

I am thrilled that you considered me for this wonder award, I too do not know quite how to pass it on but as I say in my classroom, Don't say I can't, say I will try! I am the one that is blessed to have you as a friend!

Bonnie said...

Ah, Brenda. Thanks so much. I am touched and flattered. I blog for me, because it's fun and fulfilling. It's such a blessing to know that someone else enjoys my post. Who says virtual friends aren't "real"?

You are all welcome, I cherish each one of you along with many others that I visit at their wonderful blogs! And do not worry about passing on the award, its for you from me and that is all I intended. I certainly have found out Bonnie that yes virtual friends are very real friends. Like those pen pals we had so many years ago. Love it!
