Attitude of Gratitude Award!~



I have revised this post as I am no longer going to accept any awards or tags.
I would still like to thank Cathy at
The Stylish House for thinking of me for having an
Attitude of Gratitude
and I would like to thank her for her welcoming support
and her sincere kindness to me as a new blogger.
I respect and admire her talent and her genuine spirit! *************
I still think that it's important to be grateful for the good things in your life and try to stay focused on them! Even though I know that it can be difficult when times are tough!
So I'd just like to say that I have seen the best of times and the worst.
But the one constant in my life has been the love from my family.
I have a wonderful and beautiful Mom who has always been very strong and supportive.
I have a sister who I can always count on to make me laugh, and lift me up when I'm feeling blue.
Although it's hard to be as close to them as I'd like to be, with them living
*so far away*
I'm still grateful to know they are only a phone call away.
I'm grateful to have a loving patient husband, who's strength I have always been able to count on over the 25+ years of marriage during the good times and the bad .
I'm also grateful my dear friend Mary who's always there to lend an ear, and who I can always count on to laugh at the silly things I say.
I'm grateful for my doting mom-in-law, whose always concerned about my health problems, and who thinks I'm a computer genius lol! (not even close!)
Of course, I'm grateful for all the wonderful memories I have of the good times in the past, and hopeful the good times will return in the future.
In the meantime,
I'm grateful for the simple pleasures, a beautiful day, a rainy day too! A comfortable home, the beauty of nature, a bubble bath, a nice massage, good music, a good movie, pizza, and of course
ice cream!
Last but not least I'm grateful for the kindness of my new blogging friends that have graciously welcomed me to the blogging world, and I very much appreciate getting to know them, and enjoy all their inspirational talent.

Sherri,
Have you heard of this free drawing program? I am leaving the link so you can look at it, because I think you might enjoy it. It is owned by the same company I use for my kitchen designs. Another good free program is Serif, it is a simplistic version of photoshop. Have a good evening, it was sunny today, yea! ~Cathy~

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! My very first award and such a very special one! It's taken me while to find the time to write why I think I have an attitude of gratitude and I still have to go back and add new recipients of the award, but I will. I've been swamped with weddings and have gotten a little behind at my posting on my blog. Just want you to know how much I appreciate this award and let you know I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.
Hugs,
Elizabeth P.S. Frozen lemonade on the beach is the best!
