Nice Matters and Smiling Award

I'm trying to catch up from my hiatus. While I was gone, a few people though of me for the "Nice Matters" awards. I am very humbled and thankful. Thank you, Doris, Rhonda and Lisa for thinking of me. I'm suppose to now nominate others for this award. Since I'm so far behind on this, there are many who have already been given the nod, including Michelle, K1, Janet and Nicole. So here it goes:

Tracey from Becoming Five. Tracey is such a sweet and caring person. You can see the love she has to give just shine through her children. We were lucky to be able to meet them at the airport this summer when they returned home with their daughter Ran. Even though at that time they had only been together for two weeks, it seemed as if they'd together forever.

Kristine from Butterfly Kisses & 100 Good Wishes. Kristine has been a great champion, especially when we were doing the Ride for Heart. Her generosity and encouraging words helped get me through a difficult ride. For that, I am eternally grateful.

Jill from There is Nothing Like a Dream. Jill is such a beautiful person, inside and out. She has an infectious laugh that you can't help but laugh along. She is a caring person who's quick to drop an email if things are going a bit rough.

I've also been given a nod for the "You Make Me Smile" award by Cyndi. I'm very touched that I manage to make at least one person smile. Here is what the person who created the award had to say about it:

The thing that I love most about blogging is that I learn so much about a person just by reading their blog. I have met MANY wonderful people with wonderful stories to tell,and I am grateful every day for each person that I have the pleasure of crossing paths in life with.I wanted to create something special for the top ten people who have inspired me through their blogging; the stories they tell, and the lives that they lead with grace and dignity. I visit their blogs for inspiration and encouragement.
Please grab your badge and wear it proudly, and pass it on because you inspire and encourage me, thank you.

I am now to nominate 10 people so here we go...

1. Michelle
2. K1
3. Rhonda
4. Doris
5. Nicole
6. Lisa
7. RMJ
and the above three mentioned ladies. Thank you all so very much for putting a smile on my face.
