Thank You. Thank You Very Much. What an honor to be listed with all the wonderful blogbuds. This will be displayed soon. I love your "message in a bottle." It conjures up one I used when I was teaching, "If you can't make a mastake, you can't make anything.
Acknowledge them. Learn from them. Apologize, if necessary, for them."
Again...Thank You. Thank You Very Much...Swampy has left the building.

This reminds me that I need to do it, too. Someone tagged me a few weeks ago.

It's a good thing my message isn't critical. ha ha.

Awwww! Thank you so much, you are spoiling me with all these little presents (blush). You are a real sweetheart! Mwah!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am notorious for not picking up awards. I never know how to get them from your blog to mine, but it means the world to me. I feel like I know you. Your adoption stories speak directly to my heart. I'm really proud to call you a friend.

Alison, this is great! I have had a nasty stomach virus/flu thing all weekend and this helps! Thanks so much! I really appreciate it!


PS It is something, but only time will tell who wins. It will be exciting to see.

Congrats on the award. Lovely message on your bottle … so relevant for all of us! I played a while back on each of my blogs and there are links to my messages in the sidebars.
Hugs and blessings,

Thank you so much for the award. You are so good for my spirit.

I really like your "message in a bottle". I needed to hear that today, especially the part about regrets being a waste of time. I have been struggling with some "regrets" lately.

Have a great week, dear friend.
