One Lovely Blog Award

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're having an excellent weekend ;o)

A few days ago, the beautiful Magaly, awarded me with the One Lovely Blog Award, then a day afterwards, the beautiful Kim, awarded me witth the same award ;o)
The rules of acceptance are that I share 7 things about myself, that you might not know, and then pass this award on to 7 other bloggers ;o)

Magaly changed the rules ;o) She wanted her nominees to share something lovely and heartwarming ;o) So, what I am going to do, is share one thing about me and share something heartwarming ;o) I hope you don't mind Kim ;o) I think you all know everything about me anyways ;o) LOL!  ;o)

So, the one thing you might know about me, is that I love to dance! Yes I do ;o) I dance outside, I dance inside ;o) And, there doesn't even have to be music ;o) But, watch out when I do put the music on! There is nothing stopping me ;o) I dance everyday ;o) In one of my year books from high school, they put a picture of me, and beside it wrote, the year wouldn't have been the same, if Stacy wasn't dancing ;o) That made me smile ;o)

Now on to something heartwarming ;o) Yesterday, September the 14th, was a very special day ;o) My brother's birthday and one of our dearest friends birthday ;o) She turned 90 and we celebrated with her, and her friends and family ;o) Gwen is a darling! Always smiling! Has a great personality! Never complains and still lives on her own, in a beautiful apartment, with her two gorgeous cats ;o) In her life, she has lost two daughters, two brothers, a sister and her husband all from cancer. She still has one son and one daughter, 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren ;o)

We were asked to bring no presents, so I made a special card for her ;o) She loved it! This is Gwen as a baby crow, knitting ;o)
Here is a picture of mom and Gwen at the party ;o) Mom has known Gwen for 50 years!
A very lovely, heartwarming day ;o)
Now, I am suppose to pass this on to 7 more beautiful bloggy friends. I see this award has been going around, so what I am going to do, is to give this award to all my beautiful bloggy friends ;o) If you haven't received this award, please take it ;o)

One more thing, before you leave, I finished this painting a few days ago ;o)
"The Wise One and Protector Of All"
Big Hugs ;o)
