Sunshine Blogger Award

On Thanksgiving morning, I was up early having a cup of coffee.  My hubby and I spent the night at "My daddy's house", which is so hard for me, as I used to say "My parent's house", as my mother unexpectedly passed away on Mother's Day.  It's different and sad now that she is gone.

I was sitting at the kitchen counter, on the same stool my mother always sat in, drinking my coffee and checking my email.  I received an email from Sandra at Crea Sandra a follow DT member at Digi Haven and blog friend.  Don't you just love how we have friends, that we have never met, but have gotten to know and love through the crazy world of blogging and our shared passion for papercrafts.  Anyway, Sandra had passed along the Sunshine Blogger Award to me and 9 others.

Thank so much Sandra - you gave me a bit of sunshine, warmth and a smile that morning.
