There Is An End And A Beginning

by Sherry Riter in Award,Lessons of Life,Time,Weather

This post is divided into three distinct sections because the three sections have nothing to do with each other except for the relationship to the title of my post…

Number One

Remember that pink flashing reminder to vote for the Mommy Blogger of the Year at Project Mommyhood and how it disappeared on Sept 1st? That’s because there was a winner: Allie at No Time For Flashcards! Congrats to the winner!

Thank you to all my blogging and non-blogging (who found voting to be crazy…LOL) friends who voted for me. Although I didn’t win, I had a great time and was very flattered at the number of votes I received especially since I have only been blogging for four months. Humbly, I say “Thank You” to all of you.

Number Two

I’ve been given a few things to pass along from some sweet bloggers. Before you ask, I can count, but I hate rules that tell me I can only choose five or six or whatever the number is, so tsk, tsk…I have a hard time making decisions…OBVIOUSLY!

Everyone listed below for the award or tag gets the You Add Sunshine To My Day Award because YOU DO! Pass it on to other bloggers who brighten your day!

Download it here

Next is the Superior Scribbler Award who was given to me by Tammy at Keep In Touch With Mommakin. She is a beautiful lady!

Superior Scribbler Award
Download it here

The rules for this one are:

  • Each Superior Scribbler I name today must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to this post, which explains The Award.
  • Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog

I’m passing this along to the following Superior Scribblers:

I hadn’t seen The Bookworm Tag before it was given to me by Jennifer at life ’round you n me who is a young, single mom in the Philippines.

I’m tagging the following:

Number Three

It is fast approaching the time we all begin our hibernation because summer is nearly over…

popcicles lush green trees gorgeous flower
“In summer, the song sings itself.”
~William Carlos Williams~
crystal clear swimming pool green valley fall lake
“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.”
~John Donne~
fall trees snowy mountains “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant:
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity,
prosperity would not be so welcome.”
~Anne Bradstreet~

To get the tag, click under the pictures where it says DOWNLOAD IT HERE. That will take you to PHOTOBUCKET where the picture is saved. Click and save the HTML CODE found to the left of the picture, then go to YOUR blog, create an HTML element in your side bar and insert the code. When you save it, the tag appears in your side bar. Let me know if you still need help.

Wow, thanks for the sweet props! I'm away from home right now, but will make with the downloading when I get home later tonight.

Love the pics of the changing seasons! It's true – it's difficult to appreciate even our favorite season without the contrast of those we're perhaps not as fond of. Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks again!


8 Oh Sew Good September 7, 2009 at 12:32 pm

Thank you so very much for thinking of me when you were deciding on who to give these awards to. I am very, very honored and humbled to be included in this list with many of these other bloggers. I read many of their blogs regularly and I do not consider myself anywhere near as talented. Thank you for giving me a boost of self-confidence today. You are such a kind soul.

I will think on this and do my part to pass them along in the next day or two. Thanks again!

Many Blessings,

Teresa <><

25 S.E. Sward September 8, 2009 at 12:39 am

I am so very touched and grateful that you find my writing good enough to give both the sunshine and superior scribbler awards to! I am thrilled and look forward to paying both awards forward.

Love the photos and the quotes, especially the Donne quote.

Thanks again!


26 BunnoGal September 8, 2009 at 1:23 am

Those photos are gorgeous. We are just into Spring here in Australia and I'm really looking forward to some warm weather.


27 parentingBYdummies September 8, 2009 at 2:11 am

Thanks for the awesome recognition. I've never been called a superior anything before so this is pretty neat. I've been called royal (as in royal b**ch), but never superior. Superior is WAY better. WAY!


28 Shawn September 8, 2009 at 3:24 am
