I need to clarify something first. I had recieved this blog award from Sally and was not aware of it. I was recovering from surgery then sept.10. So, today, I have learned from Sally that I had one, so this is technically my first blog award, but posted after my second one from Brenda...hope this all makes sens. I am still quite happy with both of them. Love will do that to you everytime!

The rules for this award are:

  • Thank the person who gave me this award
  • Put the award on my blog
  • List 3 things I like about myself:
  1. I'm an open, friendly kind of gal, just like Sally!
  2. I've been writing my first novel forever...
  3. I would love to raise a dog just like "Daddy", Cesar's pittbull.
Pass the award to 5 other lovely people:

Carol- Chocolate, Crafts and bears, Oh My!
Michelle-Figments of my imagination
Linda-Lovely Linda's Craft Central
Crystal-Crystal's Crafty Creations
Patricia-Stamping with Kokirose

  • Post a picture I love:

This is a picture of Soelah I love. It was taken around 1971, she was 15. You know how most people have dogs as pets, we had ducks. Every Easter we would get a duck and call Bertrand, this was the first one by that name, and he was so well domesticated, that he would take walks with us to the corner store, and wait faithfully our return. He even crossed over when he saw the school bus lights flash at the end of the street, so he could greet us right off the bus. He was amazing. We all loved him, but I know Soelah was Bertrand's favorite person, she was so nice to him and he sensed it.

As some of you might know, I lost her to breast cancer 5 years ago it will be on december 2nd. She was 5 years older than I, but she was more like a mom to me, a best friend and a true soul mate. So when she left, it hit pretty hard. You go through the denial stages, then you get angry at the loved one for leaving you, then acceptance moves in and it is still scary because while it does, I was afraid I would forget her. How weird that was. October is Cancer awarness month, and I will be doing what I can, making cards, buying "pink" products in the hope that one day, cancer will be like the flu and we can have a vaccine for it. Until then, it is wise to keep healthy, and do what we need to be with our loved ones as long as they need us. Keep smiling, keep shining, life is worth living every second of it.

Hugs, Peggyxo
