Thank you to Vee, Shelly, and "Fairmaiden" for letting me know you have gifted me with the You Make Me Smile award. That makes ME smile. :)
It's fun but also humbling when I get e-mails from like minded people who have been reading Coffee Tea Books & Me for a long time and I'm just "meeting" them. Of course, I can't say anything because it is rare these days I get a chance to comment on my favorite blogs! I have no idea how many people read this blog. I am very thankful for each and every one of you who stop by whether it is daily or "from time to time".
Cathy, thank you for the comment about my new "In Memory" box on the side bar of the blog. I saw something similar on another blog (sorry, can't remember which one!) and thought immediately I'd love to do the same thing for my Storm Girl. I still miss her and I know there will long be an empty space in our hearts and our home in the shape of that little cat. I loved this picture of Storm ready to pounce on Sasha and the look on Sasha's face. Sasha was much larger than her sister but it was usually Storm that won when there was a sibling squabble.
So, to return to the matters at hand... once again I am giving this award to only one person. I honestly have to do that right now for the sake of time. I have SO much to do to house and yard to get ready for Winter and to be honest, all of you make me smile. :) (Okay, so I know that is a cop out even if it is true.)
However, there is one person I know who touches the lives of a lot of fellow bloggers. She has often made me smile by her comments as well as sending me beautiful cards and "surprises" through the mail. So I award the You Make Me Smile award to my dear friend Mari Nanci at Smile-n-sigh. You make a lot of us smile just thinking of you.
