Thank You, Steviewren

Thanks so much, Steviewren. This is so sweet of you to award me with a friendship award. For those of you that don't know Stevie of A little birdie told me so, then you need to drop by. She is a very talented and warm person. I have been enjoying her blog for several months now and she has such interesting and fun things. She asked the following questions and I pass these along to the women I am awarding this to:
Do you have the same friends since childhood? I have lost touch with my girlfriends since childhood, but I do have friends that I keep in touch with since high school. I enjoy going to the reunions and we talk and email during the in-between times.
Things you value most about your friends? I value their loyalty and honesty. I have some very sweet friends that I know I could ask them for anything and they would help me. I find that sort of rare in this day and age.
Are your friends sounding boards? Yes, definitely. Since I work away from home 5 days a week I can't talk that much to my husband and he doesn't want to hear about my 'stuff' anyway. By
'stuff' I mean issues at work, diet issues, clothes, books, etc.
What is your favorite activity to share with your friends? I would have to say shopping and eating and attending women's conferences. Actually though, I just love having a good cup of coffee with a friend and catching up on everything.
My daughter is one of my best friends and I love it that she is the age she is now. She's in her mid-30's and since she's grown and married we can talk all day about everything. Our recent trip was so much fun and I look forward to going on another trip with her.
I am passing this award on to A Woman Who Is at In a Garden, she is very artistic and has such a way with people that she seems like she is always ministering to someone. She's a sweet friend that is far away, but makes me feel close with her sweet spirit. Also, I would like to pass this award to Ruth at Just Ruthie. She shares neat things and has the greatest pictures of your childhood in China. She is another loving Christian that has become a friend to me. Next will be Barb, at French Elements, she is creative with her own skin products company. She has all things French and that is so neat to me. She and her family have had health challenges and I pray that they will be completely healed and free from pain. Sherry from Edie Marie's Attic is another one of my friends that I enjoy visiting. She is upbeat and a real sweetheart. She's very open and I can imagine sitting down with her and feeling very much at home.
Please drop by and visit these gals. They are a just a small number of ladies that I now consider my friends. Again, thanks Stevie!!

Dear Trish,
Thank you so much for the sweet friendship award! I feel so blessed to have for a friend. I find it so amazing finding all the loving and caring people that I have met here in blog land. I guess that I never realized that there were so many people that share so much in common in the world with me. Just like us graduating the same year! We have a lot in common!

I have to apologize, I thought I had added you my favorite blog list a long time ago and had not. I have made that right tonight, as it should be!!!

Big Hugs, Sherry

Congratulations on the much deserved award, and it was fun learning a little more about you. I have 3 girlfriends that I've known since 6th grade and when I get together with them I feel about 13 years old!I look forward to visiting the blogs you mentioned.
