The Daily Dose

Nise' from Thus Far The Lord Has Helped Me has surprised me with this award. It is the daily dose award and this is what the Xandra, creator of the award says about it:
"So here's to all the blogs that you've discovered that you can't possibly live without. They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog."
Thanks so much Nise', it's an honor to receive this.
Now comes the hard part - passing it on. I have quite a few blogs that are must reads and it's hard to pick a few, but I decided to pick some that I haven't given awards to in the past. So - here are a few blogs that I love to see posts on and am equally thrilled to see a comment from.

Cherdecor - Cheryl is one of my newest blogging friends and I can tell that I would love her as much in person as I do on her blog.
One so Blessed - Joanne's honest posts about her life as a wife and Mom, and her striving to follow God touch me every time.
Karen's Ramblings - I've been reading Karen's blog for a while now and am often touched by her insight and evangelistic spirit.
A Mom's Life - Beth's blog is another one that is quite new to me, but I love her funny stories about her kids and the little insights she shares with us.
To all of my blogging friends - thanks for being part of my daily dose. Thanks for your funny, inspiring, day to day posts. I've been blessed to get to know so many of you!

Thank you, Mari, for this award! I am so glad that we met each other on line. You have become such a good friend. I love reading your blog and finding out what you do each day. I love your heart for the Lord. We are of kindred spirits.

I have a very hard time choosing others because I don't want people to get their feelings hurt if I don't choose them so I will just say thank you very much. You are a very dear friend!

Thank you so much for thinking of me and my little blog. I feel so grateful to call you my friend. I enjoy reading about your life and am inspired by the Titus 2 woman that you are to me.

I look forward to now reading the other gals blogs that you mentioned. I have found so many wonderful women through you Mari. You being at the top of the list!

Love, Joanne

I love my "regulars," of which you are definitely one. I would have given you one, too, so there, that's a double award. :)
