Anybody Thirsty?

Staci, over at The Bliss Of It All, gave me the Lemonade Award, for attitude and/or gratitude. I'd like to think I have all of it, although some folks around here would say that some days they don't appreciate my attitude...

However I do know that I have all my life tried to be grateful for everything that has come my way. I've basically had pretty good health, even with the fibro, I have great siblings and I have had and still have some pretty wonderful friends, even back to school days. I love to go outside and feel the wind on my face, the dirt under my fingernails, even the rain on my head. I might gripe at one point and the next turn around and say how wonderful the day, weather, dinner, movie, whatever is...

When I get hit with the joy of living, I just have to share it. Please don't get me wrong, I'm no PollyAnna, but dang, it's good to be alive! Especially now when the days are getting longer, more sunshine, and I'm taking a break from working out in the garden, cleaning up getting ready for the fellow that's coming tomorrow to turn up the garden for us. Can anyone tell that I'm seasonally effected?

Okay, here's the Lemonade Stand Instructions:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post. 2. Nominate at least 8 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude. 3. Link to your nominees within your post. 4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog. 5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award. So here goes...

My Random Insanities

My New Thing To Do

Adopting M.E.

Twisted Fencepost

From Here To Anxiety...My Lapband Journey

Life Just Keps Getting Weirder

Blind Pig And The Acorn


All of these folks, for one reason or another exemplify the attitude/gratitude aspect of this award. I enjoy reading each and every one and I can say that I think all of you would find them fun to read.

So, Staci, thank you for feeling inclined to send this award my way. I'm very thankful for you and all my blogging friends out in this wonderful world.

Isn't it great that soon we'll be planting stuff in the dirt? It just don't get any better!

Mary Ellen said...

Thank you so much! The kids are racing this weekend, and I probably won't have time to do this for a few days, but I'm very honored. Of course, then you had to go and mention that you are working in your garden, when I'm buried under 10 feet of snow!

I'm honored. We are looking for somebody to break our garden up (for the first time...don't expect great results this year...nothing but grass has been growing here the last 30 plus years). Goodness, your flowers are pretty. I remember grandma always had the orange tiger-lilies and purple iris and hyacines (did I spell that rights). On Mother's day we would strip the yard of anything with blossoms and decorate the cemetery in honor of Mother's day.

Oh Helen,
Thank you for thinking of me! I think Nola summed it up best but I am truly grateful for your friendship and am thrilled that you thought of me.

Sorry, I'm late. I've been tied up with the non-work catch-up stuff.
Thank you for the award! I always enjoy the comments you leave for me.
If there is anyone who deserves this award, it is you for the fun way you look at the world around you.
