Gratefulness Week-19 Award Edition

::grab and Inspire::
This award lives on the pages of one of the women who inspires me! She created it to share with others. Thank you EssenseVibez!!!

I am grateful for the inspiration and encouragement that these ladies give me:

is a striking and beautiful woman. She has so much creativity and love for others. She has such a rich and cool vibe. She inspires me to see my beauty, explore other creative souls, and love every ounce of who I am.

is a very talented and gentle soul. Each one of her photographs and witty quotes inspire deep emotion in me. I am always moved by seeing the beauty that she shares with us through her creativity. I often tell her she has no idea how talented she is...

is a green Momma like me. She is so industrious and a wonderful photographer, capturing delightful moments of her family and friends. She has a special place in my heart, I just love her!!!

is a teacher like me. She is also a newlywed. I love her wonderful photos of awesome moments with children. She also shares the love she has for her husband. She reminds me of my first few years as a married young woman.

is a Momma and wife like me. She puts her honesty and emotions right there on the page for all to reflect upon. I love her beauty and raw approach to mother-hood. She has a story to tell in each entry and I look forward to reading every word.

is a Momma and wife too. She works so hard to take care of her children and be supportive to her husband. She reminds me of how women are the glue for their household. She is also a poet. I love sitting back and taking in the lyrics of her poems...amazing.

much love sisters!!!

  4. Gerri, your friends have all said it so beautifully in these comments. But I will add that sometimes you meet people and their warmth radiates even through the computer airwaves. I always say to Kelly (Septermom) that I wish we were neighbours so that we could meet for coffee and just spend some time sharing and laughing. I can truly say I extend that to you as well. You're just one of those kindred spirits I'm glad to know! Thank you for your thoughtful words in giving me this award!
