A Pleasant Surprise

So while i was on vacation i got a pleasant surprise in my inbox. Michelle from Home Decorating News awarded me with the Attitude of Gratitude Award. So without further ado i am passing this award on to some great women! Here are the rules:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.

2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show an attitude of gratitude.

3. Link to your nominees within your post.

4. Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received this award.

5. Share the love and link to this post and the person who nominated you for the award.

6. Tell us how you've come to have an attitude of gratitude

I am not so sure i am completely grateful all the time but I am very grateful for many of my day to day blessings. I guess I should give my Mom all the credit although it came through her in not the way i wish. When i was a teen i was very ungrateful. I took advantage of everything i was given. I thought that the things i had would always be there. When my Mom passed away it was a rude shock that not everything will always be there another day. From then on i lived to the fullest. I don't take anything for granted or at least i try not to. Each day is a gift and you never know what tomorrow does or doesn't hold. I try to think that i live each day like it is my last. Enjoy it while it lasts as corny as it sounds.

So now on to my nominees.

Thank you so very much!! I am actually trying to work on becoming more grateful because I can be a big whiner when I don't get what I want :-). Thank you for awarding me with this. Oh and I love the flip flop background!!

Jen @ Rolling Through Looneyville said...

Thanks for the award! :)

I'm having more and more trouble keeping the attitude good lately, so this is a nice reminder.

Hope you're feeling well!!
