I think that being a mom has by far been the most gratifying thing I have ever done. To know all the hard times we have been thru and yet I can look at each one of my boys and be proud of who they are and who they are growing into. Suffering from anxiety, living with domestic violence for years , and then becoming a single mom doing it all alone for 3 years before Josh came into my life taught me that I was stronger then I ever thought I was. I now have 2 boys in college and one at the top of his 4th grade class, each one of them is the kind of son that any mom would be proud to have...Im just lucky enough that they belong to me!!!!

Dena, I am so very touched that you thought to give me this award, but your words about me and my blog are what really really touched me, deeply! You are just too sweet to say such nice things about it. What a dear person you are. I will post about the award on my blog this week, must think up some thing about being grateful. Wow, i loved what you wrote. I think hardship in life is what causes us to be grateful when we come out of it on the other side. So I think I know what I will be writign about. Take care, and thank you again. Debby

Awww....I am touched! No, not in the head dork. Well, ok maybe just a little. Anyway, thank you so much for the award. It is my first one here. So I guess you took my award virginity? Woohoo! (Was I any good?) Looking at the rules I see I am gonna have to break one already. I can't nominate that many people. I dont KNOW that many people here. Oh well, I will think of something. Maybe I can nominate the ones I do know well enough and save them as "roll-over" awards? Are they worth anything on E-Bay?

Ok I am off to figure out how to add the award to my page now. any hints?
