I received this award from a very special friend, Janet at Dolly's Daily Diary I am grateful and blessed that our paths have crossed. Thank you!

"A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him / her I may think aloud."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is what the "Let's Be Friends" Award represents:
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find 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 are 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. I also pass this award on to;

BETH - "The most I can do for my friend is simply to be his friend. I have no wealth to bestow on him. If he knows that I am happy in loving him, he will want no other reward. Is not friendship divine in this?"
- Henry David Thoreau

- "What is a friend? A single soul in two bodies."
- Aristotle

JANET- "Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of joy you must have somebody to divide it with."
- Mark Twain

DOROTHY"I count myselt in nothing else so happy
As in a soul rememb'ring my good friends."
- William Shakespeare

MEGAN"The world would be so lonely, in sunny hours or gray. Without the gift of friendship, to help us every day."
- Hilda Brett Farr

JENN-"One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives."
- Euripides, Greek playwrite

HOLLY - "Friendship is love with wings."

KHALED"I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

DOUG -"When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves."
-William Arthur Ward

Thanks so much for the award Christine.
I appreciate that you consider me a friend. I meant what I said before about your blog and your work and how inspirational your words and pictures are.
I also got the meaning behind the quote posted and I will always remember it.

Dolly,Holly and Khaled :)

Your most welcome!

You have all brought me unexpected moments of Happiness. Gratitude preserves old friendships, and procures new.
“We cannot tell the exact moment a friendship is formed; as in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses, there is at last one that makes the heart run over.”

Thank you for your drops of kindness!

We sure should celebrate our friends because they are priceless. If you are curious as to why I said that read the article on my blog which is entitled, "I celebrate my friends, they are priceless."
