The Renee Award

I am very proud and honored to receive the Renee Award. It was given to me by Sonia, a very talented and sweet lady. Thank you Sonia this award is very special to me as I am a Breast Cancer Survivor.

The Renee award was created by Bella and Ces in honor of their friend Renee. In Bella's own words "this is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds it's way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns..." You are to choose 8 other people to receive this award.

I was introduce to Renee's Blog, Circling My Head, a few weeks ago and each time I visit I find myself laughing or crying but always inspired.
Here are the eight people with whom I would like to share this award.
Madame K

Each one of these ladies is very talented in what they do and have inspired me in their own special way. Click on their name and you will see why.

Congratulations Gourdie and thank you for passing it on to me. I am so happy that I have got to know you a little this past year (Yes, it has been a year). You deserve this award because you inspire and encourage so many. You are so generous in sharing your knowledge and talents. I will always be grateful to you for helping me grow.
