I need to do a little work at my blog today. I've received a few awards and need to pass them on, so here goes:
This award came from Mary at Mary's Writing Nook. Thanks Mary - and I think you are pretty awesome too! I want to pass this on to:
Kae at All My Blessings.
Lynn at Rohal Call.
Mel at There's no place like home...
Sarah from Short Stop.

This award came from Melody, of Pennies in my pocket. To translate the meaning from Portuguese to English, it means: "This blog invests and believes, the proximity"(meaning, that blogging makes us 'close' -being close through proxy). Isn't that true? I've really enjoyed making friends through blogging! Thanks Melody!

Post this if/when you award this to others: "They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and friendship; they are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize, and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut or that they propagate?" Then let's try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text."

I am passing this award on to some blogs I've recently been introduced to:
Demara from
Kristie from This life I lead
Linda from Growin' With It
Linda from Linda and Jake

I got this award from Deb, of Riding Free with Deb. Permio al Esfuerzo Personal is translated to mean Prize to the Personal Effort. Thanks Deb! It has some rules that go with it.
Here are the rules:
Mention the blog that gave it to you and comment on their blog to let them know you've posted your award
Publish these rules
Share 6 values that are important to you and 6 things you do not support
Grant the prize to 6 people

6 values that are important to me
1. My faith
2. My Husband
3. My family
4. My church
5. integrity
6. loyalty

6 things I do not support
1. abortion
2. cruelty
3. lying
4. abuse
5. evolution
6. swearing

6 blogs I am passing this on to:
Amy from Every Day with the Kellys
Kayren from Everything's coming up Daisies
Jamie from Rose Cottage
Connie from Little Red Heats from God
Janel from He knows my name
Chris from An Unspoken Story
