The Sweetest Award for Moms

Lynette at Lynettes L.A.M. passed this to me today and I am so honored. This award is for being a great mom and it really touches me. I first met Lynette through RMS and our love of the same bedroom color. She started her blog to help cope with her darling daughter going off to college, and I did the same. I have lots and lots of pictures of our darling Cait, but to me this is what being a mom is all about - allowing her to follow her dreams, and to stand, strong and independent, leading others!

"This is an award for being a wonderful Mom

You do fantastic work

Be proud of your accomplishments!"

This award really means the world to me. I am terribly proud of our daughter and all that she is and is still to be. If I accomplish nothing else in my entire life, I know that I can point to Caitlin and say "see"?

Now I am to pass this along to fellow bloggers who are terrific mothers. I can't think of anyone out there who would not qualify, and so many of you have already received this. I scrolled through recent posts in an attempt to avoid repetition. So I am going to pass this in no particular order to the following. If you've already received this, great! And if I missed anyone, please feel to accept this and pass it along.

Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
Claire at Life of a Southern Belle
KD at Southern Whimsey
and some new blogging buddies:
Christine at Christine's Home and Travels
Cyndi at Life on the Prairies
Linda at Nina's Nest
and once again, the Micasastyle gals, Kathysue, Marty and Jeanette. Maybe if I keep giving them awards they will start blogs so that they can display them tee hee!

Well, I did it. I started a blog today it is I have no idea what I'm doing, so bear with me. Thank you for the wonderful award. I don't know how to take it, so maybe you can let me know. You are just such a good friend. Thanks and Hugs Marty

Kat...I had a big lump in my throat when I read your blog. My youngest daughter will go away to college this year and I am going to have the most empty space in my heart not having her here, our routines & someone to laugh & talk with. I have an older daughter but she is going to a local school so I have never had to deal with this before. I should go to Lynette's blog soon.

But you really got me when you referred to your greatest accompliment (your beautiful daughter). I never thought of my daughter as an accomplishment but you are so spot on!! I could just cry.

We will have to stay in touch. Bless you!

Thanks so much...this is one of the sweetest awards I've seen...being a good wife and mother means the world to me. My husband and I often remark that our two kids are by far our greatest accomplishments!

You said it all sister! Although I hate having my daughter so far away, I know that she is following her dreams and not letting fear stand in her way. Something I wish I had been better at doing! I am going to check in often, since we are living paralel lives right now! Thanks for stopping by! Sue
