A Happy 101 Award~



I woke up this morning to a wonderful surprise ~ Cheryl over at Heritage Happens and Carol from Reflections From The Fence, awarded me with the wonderful Happy 101 Award.

Thank you Cheryl and Carol, it's an honor receiving this award from you both! You both have put a smile on my face to last a week and it truly makes me Happy! Like Carol, I believe that things come to you when you need them the most! This was right on time.

So, the responsibilities that go with this award are as follows. I am to list 10 things that make me happy.



1. My grand kids and daughter, they are so precious.

2. My childhood best friend Sandy, and my sister in law, Honor, they both have been there for me thru thick and thin, and always bring happiness to my life.

3. My mom, who is also my best friend.

4. Genealogy and my genea~friends, I have made some very wonderful friendships here and treasure them.

5. My card making and beautiful papers.

6. Hot tea, I have always loved hot tea and drink it all day long, it soothes my soul and makes me feel good. I drink Green tea all during the day and Chamomile in the evening.

7. Chocolate and chocolate with my tea!

8. Taking and looking at photos. Ever since I was a little girl I have always loved looking at photos and I surround myself with photos of family and friends. Each time I look at them, it makes me happy.

9. My husband and all that he does for me.

10. Knowing that I have made a difference in someones life by helping or just being there.
