One of my absolutely very FAVORITE people, Diane at Diane's addled ramblings gave me a wonderful award. This award "acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day". Isn't that just a wonderful thing to say? Those "things" are what I strive for everyday, and to be recognized for them is so touching. So, thank you... It means a lot. She also said "Denise has an open mind and an open heart... she's someone you just know you'd love to live next door to"! Oh boy, now that's a big one. Think about your neighbors? Sometimes you just get great ones, and then... there are the "others". The ones you check out your window for, before making a break for your mailbox, or car so they can't catch you. I sure don't ever want to be "that" neighbor! So here I ask for some help from my "actual" neighbor.... Melanie? What do you think....? What is it we always say; neighbors by fate, sisters by choice? That pretty much sums it up. We have great neighbors and a great neighborhood (but we do have the 1 neighbor you have to hide from). I talk to a lot of friends who don't have any relationship with their neighbors, so I'm thrilled to be able to consider a neighbor a great friend. We have a blast!
So, move on in Diane; we'll make room! You'd make a wonderful neighbor and we'd love to have you! ; )
This award has made my day. I've got a great big bloggy smile on my face and it CANNOT be removed!
