Hearts and Friendship Awards

I was sitting and evidently bored while browsing in the net when I encountered this site ( Just for the fun of it, I decided to join although 2L3Bs already got one in our What the heck, so I tried and it was then I realized this is much user-friendly and definitely more exciting! Here I am now, a happy and excited blogger always saying hello to my friends and always excited to meet new friends from all over the world!

Maybe I should give a thousand awards to for giving us a chance to meet wonderful people like Debby of The Pink Bird House.

I haven't met her in flesh but fate had made us closer.. She brought me to her adoptive country and through her, I was able to roam around Germany for free...! See her site in and you'll know exactly what I mean... Other than the free tour, she also awarded me with this Friendship Blogger's Award.. Thank you my dearest Friend for including me among the 8 awardees on your list..

Upon receipt of the award, the recipient must also share this to 8 wonderful people and keep the friendship blooms all around.. Kindly check the good people I listed below and hope you can visit them as well to make you realize how they deserved this.. At the bottom of the award, you must include the footnote below to make the readers realize it's worth..

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. The kind of blogger that aim to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of the prizes are cut,even more friendships are propagated.Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight blogger who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award".

I highly appreciate and accepted this award and as the rules goes, may I pass this to 8 friendly people such as:

1. MS. RENIE of RENIE BURGHART'S WORLD. I believed that anyone cannot write anything good for the soul unless one is sensitive, caring, and loving enough like Ms. Renie. She's a writer, novelist and an author of number of articles published by the famous "Chicken Soup For The Soul".. I really admire highly acclaimed writers whose books and articles were published. Her blogs would also give you a lot of good lessons about life and friendship.. May I award this to Ms. Renie for up-lifting a lot of souls..

2. PATTY OF CRISFIELD MARYLAND. It's rare to find people here in our site who will travel from afar just to show the world how people suffers from war.. An honest, straigthforward, ever courageous yet highly sensitive and talented photojournalist from Crisfield.. I guess Debbie already gave her this award but why not another one?

3. REGGIE GIRL OF MIDLIFE, MENOPAUSE, MISTAKES AND RANDOM STUFF. She's not only super duper friendly to people and human friends but also to dogs and I guess stray animals around.. She always provides comfort to all her friends especially by her constant caring comments and sweet notes of love..

4. DEANNA OF TIMELESS THINGS. She's one of the very first sweet friends I'd ever got during my first week of blogging. I stumbled upon her site when I was browsing on the feedjit live and the rest is history.. She's so sweet the she will bring you to a lot of her Pink Saturday Trips and to many thrift shops that she famously adore..

5. MONA OF WSPRSWEETLY OF COTTAGES. I begun to follow Mona's blog when she left a straightforward comments to one of our common friends. She's so frank and honest. She's definitely the type of person I really want for a friend. I begun to follow her posts constantly and I realized she's such a super sweet and caring person underneath..

6. DOT OF DOT & CO. is one of our life's surprises. I met her when I was browsing via Feedjit live and realized we both came from our neighboring towns and yes, we already met.. Such a beautiful and friendly family. Just like meeting our long lost relatives from afar..

7. BETSY OF MY FIVE MEN. She is such a lovely woman with a caring heart. Having triplets plus the challenges she faces yet there she is, still lovely and compassionate to others as always.. A best friend to everyone and to her lovely family out there..

8. DANETTE OF HAND KNITS THAT BLOSSOMS. She's one of the kindest friend here in blogger site providing even a simple comment that will touch you. She's among the best here that took care of her family especially her lovely grandaughter and a best bet for a best friend to us here in blog land..

May I thank you DEBBY. This has been my second award from you so may I repay you by giving you this FLOWER OF FRIENDSHIP because you really deserve this:

Dear Loida...Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog. I am ...astounded by the heart felt responses I have recieved. I was not expecting such..a depth of feeling.
You have been so sweet to me..and I appreciate that so much. I was not certain which "award" (I am delighted!) was mine so thought I had best ask. I didn't want to make off with the wrong one. :) The little flower heart was cute and almost snagged it then thought it might be the hearts and then thought I had best ask. :) I am so PROUD you thought of me. Thanks so very much! Such sweet awards to display. Please let me know and I will return and gently carry it home...
Hugs, Mona

LOIDA, I feel like I am a bit behind with my posts and my comments to others. I was here on your blog today and wanted to leave comment, and then I was called into the kitchen where hubby was having a problem with the dinner. Bless his heart, he is still cooking for us all. Well, here I am back again, but late at night here.

Anyway, I can not thank you enough for this fantastic award. It means more to me then all the others, because it is such a special award, given in true friendship, from the bottom of your heart! You are the sweetest person, so kind to all others, always ready to leave a funny, charming or sincere comment to all your friends. The blogisphere is a better place because you are there!!

Is it okay if I copy and paste the parts of this post where you have mentioned why you gave me the award? If so, I would like to use them for my next post! Have a great day dear friend, I am so glad that our paths crossed each others.

Loida of the 2L3B's said...

Thanks my dear Debby.. You're so lucky having your husband cook for you. Please get well soon, we're all missing our tour to Germany. Miss ya,

Loida of the 2L3B's said...

I'm really glad you came.. Yes please visit the other ladies, they are great.. I was only told about 8 although there are more on my list so please accept my FLOWER OF FRIENDSHIP THAT NEVER FADES AWARD..


On of the best here in blog land, please also accept FLOWER OF FRIENDSHIP THAT NEVER FADES AWARD.. I guess blogs would really make the world a better place to live when everybody is a friend to everyone..

My dearest sweetest Loida,
I am an award free blog but I am going to accept this one because it doesn't call it an "award". I appreciate it so very much and I feel so fortunate that you and I have become friends.
I have been offered quite a few other awards and I've just chosen to go the "award free" route with my blog. I do my blog solely for the purpose of raising a little money for my animal friends. I hope that I have never offended anyone by not posting an award....I always write them a nice note of apreciation. Does this make sense? I get so much reward and I've met the sweetest and nicest people while blogging that that in itself is reward enough you know? I hope you understand what I'm saying and I feel that you will.
Loida dear, I received your sweet gift yesterday!! Oh, I do so love the lovely trinket box and the delicious smelling sachet. Prince said it smells like heaven and that you have to be a darling person. Of course I told him that you are indeed a ray of sunshine. I just can't thank you enough for thinking of me and I will treasure it always. While I was picking up my parcel at the post office I asked them if they could track the parcel I sent to you by the customs form number. They are trying to track it but tell me that it is being held in customs.
I am so upset because I sent it on February 9th and cant understand why they are holding it?? It is John Grisham's Playing For Pizza that you wanted and a CD that I put in that Prince and I love to dance to. I am supposed to go back up there Monday, but they tell me that they can only tell me that it was delivered to China and that they of course can't do anything about customs holding the parcel. I've had these problems before. Once they held Hannah's Christmas present in Wales for a month!!
Have a beautiful day with your charming family and say hello to that hottie hubby of yours and those georgeous kiddos.
Take good care and........

Steady On
Reggie Girl

Loida of the 2L3B's said...

My dearest Reggie Girl,
Thanks for explaining to me.. please don't worry, I understand. About the parcel, this is such an unfriendly place for sending and receiving gifts.. I was supposed to send you, Patty and some other friends some chinese tea for our supposed tea party but the custom did not allow it so I just sent the trinket box and the sachet instead.. so sorry.. but i'm glad you liked it and Prince too. I hope you're doing well with the painting and renovating your home.. please up-date us.. thanks my friend and have a lovely Sunday night..
cares a lot,

Renie Burghardt said...

Dear Loida,

I apologize for being so late to pick up your lovely award. It seems I barely have time to blog anymore. I hope you understand. I did receive this award from two other friends a while ago, and have not posted it yet. So
you can see how bad I am. I will try to post all my awards soon, including your copy. Please forgive me, and thank you so much for thinking of me. Mostly, I have chosen to go award free as well. I hope you understand, and you are so sweet to say all those nice things about me. I hate to dissapoint you, dear Loida. Please say you understand.

Hugs and blessings,


Loida of the 2L3B's said...

Dear Ms. Renie,

Oh I'm deeply touched that found the time to reply although you are busy. No problem, it's just one way of letting you know I'm one of you big fans.. Have a nice and safe week ahead..

Best regards,
