It's Friday and it's Fabulous...Versatile Blogger Award

In life, meaningful relationships take a lot of time.  What would we do without our families and great friends.  We've found that the same holds true in the blogging world.  It's been such a wonderful surprise.  We never dreamed how much time we would invest...but on the other hand who would have thought that many of you would become some of our closest friends?...

We worry about you when natural disasters hit your area...or if we haven't seen a post or heard from you in a while.  The e-mails and phone calls filled with encouragement and wise advice keep us going on hard days.  

Recently three dear friends have been awarded The Versatile Blogger Award and have been gracious in passing the Award on to us.

Normally recipients of the Award share 7 things about themselves and pass the award on to 15 others...

We think you may be tired of hearing about us...since we do so much talking every week here on the blog...we've chosen to tell you more about these fine women that have become two of our dearest friends.
