How Lucky Am I

Thank you Cathy,from A Bit of the Blarney and Marcy from Blessings each Day for this Queen of all Things Meme Award, I'm not sure I deserve it but I humbly accept it from two wonderful blogger friends.



To accept this award I must follow certain rules, which I always try to do but sometimes don't succeed. Anyway this award is a bit different as I have to share with you something awesome about myself without sounding boastful. Here are the rules:

1. List seven things that make you Awe-Summ
2. Pass the award along to seven bloggers you read religiously.
3. Tag these seven bloggers

I humbly give you my list of seven:

1. I do volunteer work on a regular basis
2. I donate books to the Library every year
3. I am a loyal friend
4. I am a good public speaker and enjoy it
5. I save my bottles and cans and donate them to the boy scouts
6. I play Secret Santa for a family each Christmas
7. I donate to 2 hospitals for sick children each month

I'm not sure that I succeeded in not sounding boastful....honestly I didn't mean too as I feel I am blessed to be able to do the things I do.

Now comes the part of an award which bothers me every time....passing it on to seven bloggers I read religiously.....I read so many every day and enjoy every one of them and am not very good at choosing one friend over another. Please know this and know if the rules allowed I would pass it on to all of you. Okay I pass this on with great love to the following:

Wanda - from Moments of Mine

Gail - from Know Your ITS

Marion - from Granny on the Web

Garnet - from Garnetsgarden

Silver - from Reflections

Jackie - from Teacher's Pet

Penny - from Napple Notes

For those of you who want to see beautiful photographs, a good belly laugh or a wonderful read then I encourage you to visit these blogs....they have brought me much happiness and I consider them good friends.

Now I am off to read these and my other favorite blogs and comments, and as always Good Night and God Bless........:-) Hugs

Thank you, Bernie. You are one of the most humble people... I love reading what you wrote...and admire you so much. Take care of you and know that I consider you to be a good friend...bringing happiness and love. That's what friends do....and you do it so well.
Smiles,
Jackie

Bernie said...

Thank you Jackie for your kind words, that was hard to do. I am blessed to have you for a friend and feel we are all blessed to have each other.....:-) Hugs

Eileen said...

Great list, Bernie! I would never think of you as boastful!
You're a good woman.
Love you,
Eileen

While I have to thank you for including napple notes in your list of blogs, I don't recognise this Penny person? Who is she? Muscling in on my jinksy act! Jinksy has made no bones about being anti-awards,and the attendant rules stipulating how many others they should be bestowed upon, have been known to drive her into a state of whirling dervish in the blink of an eye... Please refer to Suldog, who has been past master at acknowledging awards in a style to which jinksy aspires...

Silver said...

awwwwwww.. Bernie. Thanks for thinking of me ..

y'know what? after reading the 7 awesome things about you.. all of a sudden.. i have nothing to say about myself ;P

hugs,
Silver

Wanda said...

Good morning Bernie...Hope you slept well and the side effects of the antibiotics have disappeared.
Herhusband takes Lyrica for his peripheral nerve damage and he feels the side effects are worse than the problem...and tomrrow will ask his doctor if he can be taken off of it.

Thank you for the award Bernie...I will display it with pleasure...and will try my hardest to do that list of SEVEN!

It's grocery day...I like to go early so I need to fix myself up and leave.

Smile to you Bernie,
Wanda

Barb said...

Hi Bernie,
You will laugh at this: I woke up in the middle of the night with this urgent thing I must share with you - Eat yogurt or take acidophilus (found in health food store). Since you are on heavy doses of antibiotic, your "good" bacteria in the gut will be destroyed as well as any bad bacteria in your system. You may get a yeast overgrowth after stopping the antibiotic if you don't replenish the good bacteria (in the two items I mentioned). Hope you feel fine today!

Rebecca. Harlan, IN said...

Enjoyed reading about your awesomeness. (But I already KNEW you were awesome.)

Barb said...

Bernie,
Hope you got my comment this AM about taking either yogurt or acidophilus to restore the good bacteria the antibiotics will destroy. Wanda didn't get my comment, so I checked back to see if mine to you was posted. Not sure what's wrong...

The Retired One said...

Bernie said...

Hi Barb, am on it....and I am having that problem but am still hanging in there with them. I have a hard time taking any kind of medication, always have been this way.....how sweet of you to think of me but I don't want you to loose any sleep....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Joan, thank you, am still not sure about these awards going around, but I care so much about the people involved.....Hugs

Bernie said...

HI Jerelene, so glad you are here, I have heard so many good things about you.....not really that awesome my friend, just like everyone else, we all do the best we can......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Oh Rebecca, I am not awesome at all, believe me. I look at all the things my blogger friends do and I in awe of them....now they really special......:-) Hugs
