My First Award

February is For Friends

February….the month of friends, love, and hearts. What better time than to give and receive the Friendship award.
Kristen, at A Family is Forever, gave me this award today. She is a working mom to four kids, 2 teenagers and 2 little beauties from China. Her blog is one than I love to check regularly.
Here are the rules:
"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find friends and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships will be propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly- written text into the body of their award. "With great difficulty, I chose eight blogs to award.
Teresa at Continuing the Journey is a working mom to three kids. A teenager daughter with a full dance schedule and just learning to drive. A son, "Carson" who those close to me know by name, is from China and is all boy and oh soooo cute. I have to keep up with little guy. And if those two weren't enough to keep her busy enough, they are currently in the process of adopting another one from China, this time a beautiful little girl. I can not wait to follow that journey.
Penny at Sharp Family Tales another working mother of two. Elias, her handsome little boy and Norah, her two year old from China. I met Penny online about a year or so ago, she lives close by.
Denise at Theres always room for one more. As you can tell by her title, she has her hands full. I found Denises blog through Penny. They traveled at the same together and I have been hooked ever sense. You can always count on her for a good laugh. Many of times I have found myself laughing out loud. She has six kids! Seriously, she is a remarkable soul, you have to stop by.
Meggie, The Teenager at The World According to Meggie is the teenage daughter of Teresa at Continuing the Journey. She is not your typical teenager. She is an amazing young woman and her two siblings are lucky to have her. Meggie, I'm looking forward to following you off to college.
Chelsea over at Gour Family Adventures is the busy mother of five. One in college, a set of twin boys, and two little girls, the youngest is from China. They also live locally, we haven't met yet, but I'm hoping that we can meet them soon.
Patricia over at Little Cabin in the Woods is a homeschooling mother of six. Three boys (grown) and three beautiful little girls from China. She is an amazing woman of God, and I aways come away with a sense of peace after visiting her blog. She and I were in the same LID group.
Donna at Handsful is another homeschooling mom. She has five kids, one of which is from China. She was also in my LID group.

Carrie at Adopting Again is another homeschooling mom. She is an amazing woman who is currently in the process of adopting her second child from China. I hope to meet her one day.
I would love to meet all of my blogging buddies, you have all come to mean so much to me.

You are the SECOND person to give me this award! (I truly don't feel I qualify...but I will take any award that is offered!!) I really appreciated the sweet things you said about us in your post. After I take Carson to school this morning, I'll be announcing my "grand award" on my blog!!

Thanks so much!!

Teresa =)

P.S. I cannot wait for you to follow our journey to Molly!

P.P.S. We definitely have to meet some day (soon). Are you up for Denise's road trip this summer? I don't think I could wait 'til your cruise (which I REALLY want to join you on)!!
