I'd like to thank.....

“As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.”

My friend "midlife mom " passed this blogging award on to me! ... I've never had an award before and when I got a comment today congratulating me on my award, I had no idea where it came from. I have only been blogging for 6 months and I've enjoyed meeting so many wonderful people. Thank You " Midlife Mom " for the award, you made my day!

Whatever our hands touch--
We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture,
On doorknobs, dishes, books,
As we touch we leave our identity.
Oh, Lord, please where ever I go today,
Help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion Of understanding and love.
Heartprints of kindness and genuine concern.
May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
Or a runaway daughter,
Or an anxious mother,
Or, perhaps, a dear friend!
I shall go out today
To leave heartprints,
And if someone should say "I felt your touch,"
May that one sense be...
YOUR LOVE, LORD Touching through ME.

Thanks again to "MM" for thinking that I'm a " Good schmoozer " and now I will pass it on to my friend Myrna over at cherish... the word!

Thank you so much! I am honored to receive this award! I am behind on about some awards and memes. I hope to get caught up in the next couple of days. I have had to take care of some real world things and feel a little out of it blogging-wise right now. I will be back full force soon!

Thank you. I enjoy reading your blog also. BTW--The ice sculptures look wonderful in this heat wave we are having in TN--100* today!
