My Very First Award...Yipee!

"This is an award for being a wonderful Mom
You do fantastic work
Be proud of your accomplishments!"

I am so excited! This is only my third day of blogging and I already received an award. Thank you, Kathy! Kathy from has presented me this award and I am truly honored to accept it. Kathy has a daughter, named Cait and even if I have not met them personally, I can feel the closeness and love they have for each other. The same award was also presented to me by Cyndi at You should read her story about her 2 sons. It's amazing how much they have accomplished.

Actually, I think every mom deserves this award.

I have 2 daughters, 1 son and 2 step daughters and they are all so wonderful. I cannot really ask for anything more. They are all grown ups and independent now with their own careers. When my dad was still alive, he used to say that they (mom and dad) will never expect us to repay them back for whatever they have done for us 5 brothers and sisters, because there is no way we can repay them. He said the only way we can repay them is by doing the same thing to our children. Isn't that so true? I never expect anything from our children, I am just happy to do everything I can to make them happy.

Thank you, Kathy and Cyndi, for presenting me this award.

Now I would like to present this along to other deserving moms.
Sorry if it is a duplicate but accept it anyway, it will just mean that you are MUCH MORE than a wonderful mom.

and I would like to present this award to a non-bloggers too, Cindy known as

Christine, you're my first visitor and I really appreciate the award. I have no idea how to collect it, so I need some help. Thanks for the comment on the yard. It is really hard to have an oasis in the desert, but I think DH did a great job. Thanks again, I appreciate it. Hugs, Marty
