A "Touching Tuesday"

I have been experiencing a "writers block" lately, but now, I have at least two things to write about.

It was brought to my attention this week, that I had received an award. I am an "Inspiring Blogger" thanks to the award I received from my BFF over at My Life In Purple. Through Iris's post, I discovered that this award was created by Valerie at Next to Heaven. The idea of being an inspiration to others is incomprehensible to me right now. Only because I have days where I seek inspiration myself just to get up and moving, or to go to the grocery store, never mind providing it to others. I am just trying to get through every day, with my sanity intact. If it makes any sense, the fact that I am seen as an inspiration to others, is an inspiration for me. Thanks for the award.

Then, I picked up this BFF from work and we had lunch. She had told me in an earlier e-mail exchange that she had something for me, and of course, I just had to find out what it was. I received a beautiful necklace from lovely Valerie at Next to Heaven and Spunk & Sass Designs. It is personalized with my daughter's initials "KFG", stamped on the pendant. She also sent a card with a fitting quote written inside. Thanks Valerie! It hit me hard on my way home, that Valerie doesn't even really know me, yet she has let me know she cares, by sending her thoughts through comments, cards and this lovely necklace. It is so touching to know she cares.


  1. Hey silly, the quote was from me! It was in purple pen and everything :P

    You are my inspiration, everyday. Love you more than mint chocolate chip ice cream.

  2. You're just better than an Oreo cookie after a long day of work Mojorie. ♥

  3. <3 Your strength is an inspiration to all Marjorie!!

  4. Aww. You're going to make me cry! You are so very welcome. You have a wonderful friend in Iris!!

    I'm so glad you liked the necklace :)

  5. Congratulations on your award!!!
