Drumroll Please-I Got An Award

I got this lovely award from a friend that writes a wonderful blog about her grandchildren
MiMi's Mini Tales(and as I now know, another blog-who knew?)
Anyway, the link to her blog is here
(I hope I did that right) Thank you for the Award-What a delightful surprise!!
Anyway!!! I am supposed to write 7 things about myself that most people don't know.
I did one of these when I first started so will try to make this one a bit different.
1. I am a happy-go-lucky person and like to do spur of the moment things. However,
I am very organized so this is a direct contradiction to my inner self.
I go/do anyway-planned or not.
2. I just had a breast biopsy. I had a mammogram and there was something suspcious.
Please, please, please get yearly mammograms.
I know they are no fun...and I know they are not exactly the way you want to spend an it anyway.
I only told one friend and she has been praying for me. Prayer works!
My "tumor" was just an odd little cyst. I am blessed!
3. My children are one of the biggest joys of my life. The grandchildren are THE biggest joy of my life. They make me laugh & cry with happiness. They complete my life. If I never do another thing right~I want them to know that I love them unconditionally..always~
4. I love my home. Even though we have moved many, many times over the years, the house I am IN is always HOME to me. I can make a house feel like it belongs to me within hours of moving in. I keep saying this will be my "last" house. I quit saying that on House #12.
5. I am in the process of planning to open a shop with my daughter. It is exciting AND scary. We are going to have to make a decision and then go with it. We have been waffling back and forth-should we? Shouldn't we? Dare we? Do we?
We will decide this week.
6. I have the ability to "read" people. It is like I can see through the layers to the heart of the person. My gut instinct is just about always right. I have learned to trust it and follow that instinct. My husband has finally (after 35 years) realized that this women's intuition thing works.
7. I have a wicked sense of humor. I can find humor even under duress. The doctor that did my biopsy is not one of those warm, Dr. Marcus Welby types. When he told me that I was going to have a "puncture type scar" I told him that I guessed I wouldn't be wearing my string bikini the rest of the season. I told him that was going to disappoint a lot of people. THAT made him then I wondered if he was lauging AT me or WITH me...Hmmm...
So, that concludes this presentation of ME, MYSELF & I.
Now I would like to pass this award along to some other wonderful bloggers that I have met.
I enjoy these ladies' blogs and know you will further ado-
First-One of the very first people I really connected with- Laurie over at Heaven's Walk
Second-Debbie (that I found through Laurie) @ Lakehouse
Third-WeeFaerie-She has the most amazing photos and is just a beautiful person-Here
And last but not least- I just found (and love) Laura over at Summerhouse
So that's it, folks.
Drop by never know what secrets I will have to tell~

Dearest, Funniest, Sweetest Diana - Congrats on your Lovely Blog Award, girl! :) You deserve it because it IS (and you are) so lovely and warm and cozy and funny and you're always the first one who always - always - bring a smile to our faces. I just love to laugh at your antics! Still say you should write a book...(and it's good thing we don't live closer - it'd be nuthin' but trouble with a capital T.)

I am so glad that your biopsy went well. I, too, had to have one of those cysts taken out years ago. What we women don't put up with....Ugh! But we rely on prayer and the grace of God to get us through anything.

I am SO excited for you and your new shop, too! Yipee! Will it online, too? Will it? Will it? Huh? (You know I always have money burning a hole in my pocket....NOT!) lol!

YOU ARE THE SWEETEST, dear friend! THANK YOU so much for the award! :) I will treasure it! Here's a big {{Hug}} for you, sweetie! I'm so glad that God brought us together through this blogging addiction we both have! :) (So when's YOUR next Bloggers Anonymous meeting...?)

And yeah....I'm looking forward to more crazy secrets and stories from you and your Hero-with-the-baked-briefs.
