Helping Hand

Wow! I really don't know what to say. Last week was kind of a rough week for me in general and I have been just sitting here trying to sort through some things in my head and this morning I wake up and find a message from Jen. If you don't know, Jen's blog is Following the Footsteps. I have really enjoyed getting to know Jen, and she has been a great encouragement to me! When I wasn't writing she kept commenting and encouraging me to write, she always has something good to say, she's such a happy person! I love checking in on her everyday! And this morning I found out that she has given me an award! And she wrote some very sweet things...Jen, you almost made me cry

Select 10 bloggers: 5 you consider your blogging Helping Hand, then "Pay it Forward" by extending your "Helping Hand" to 5 additional bloggers, in support and encouragement for their efforts.

In passing on the Emblem, each recipient must provide the name of blog, or blog author with a link for others to visit. Each recipient must show the Emblem, and put the name and link to the blog that has given it to her or him. Link the Emblem to this post: Helping Hand: Much Obliged and Paying it Forward so that others will know it origin and impetus.

If you have not already done so, show your recipients some love by adding them to your blog roll, Technorati Favorite list, or in any other way to further let them know that their blog voice is important to you and being heard.

Add your name to The Helping Hand meme on the blog entitled The Emblem of the Helping Hand and don't forget to leave a comment as a permanent record of all Helping Hand recipients.

I am passing this award on to....
My Helping Hands
Holli at Baby-Faith Holli is one of the people who convinced me to start blogging in the first place! I love catching up with her and Faith and even when things are not easy she keeps tries to keep a positive attitude about it all and when Faith gets older she will read this blog and see what a strong, loving, positive Mom as a role model and just how much she is loved!

Callie and Avery's Mommy over at callie and avery. She also is such a positive and loving role model and I love the pictures she takes! She inspires me to get out there and take more pictures!

Erin at Tale of a Baby Human I love the pictures she takes and how they capture her kids' personalities and how she encourages her kids to grow and learn!

Organized Chaos She has three girls and is expecting another baby and they are remodeling her house and even through the difficult times with the kids and the house she keeps a positive attude and keeps praising God!

Dani at Dani...Black Belt Stitching Wizard I love to catch up with her every day and she encourages me to keep stitching (and knitting) and she is doing such a great job with Weight Watchers and loosing weight!

And those that I would like to extend a Helping Hand to:

Well, I can only think of one....I know it's really not according to the rules, but the blogs that I read inspire me so much more than I can describe and they all encourage me and there is no way that I could ever lend a helping hand to them...and the only reason that I want to extend the helping hand to this person is because they need all the prayers that they can get, they are in the process of adopting a son. And that is Never too Many They are a wonderful family and this little guy is blessed to be coming home to such terriffic people!
