I received a “Blogging Blessing” today from Shawn. So I’m passing it on to a few wonderful blogging friends.

“The idea…it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for 3 blog friends. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to.”

Kelly, my best friend in sarcasm. Her sense of humor never lets me down, and she’s an example of a strong woman who can be a kick-ass professional, mother, wife and friend without (seeming to) break a sweat.

Kerry. When we first met I never thought we’d be friends, but I’m so glad we are. I love her honesty and her flair for color. She’s an awesome mom and friend.

Patter Cross I don’t know Patter…..but I’ve been participating in the Scripture Challenge that she hosts over at CMK, and I am loving it. I am excited to see her new posts every week and I know that through her, I am learning more and growing in faith.

I am richly blessed with friends, some who blog and some who don’t. There’s Shawn who always makes me smile and is going to share her winning lottery ticket with me ;); Kristen who I admire so much as a new mom and for her scrapping talent; Dana who I admire as the wife and mother I wish I could be; Maricar who is strength and grace wrapped in one; Denise, my high school friend who still cracks me up and grounds me; Mark, another high school friend who challenges me to think and strive higher; my Dad, who is my greatest cheerleader and the voice in my head; my step-mom, who I swear is an angel walking on Earth………the point is that I couldn’t have hand-picked a more wonderful group of people to surround me. I am lucky, I am blessed, to call them all friends.
