You Make My Day

You Make My Day awardLast week, in the middle of an incredibly hectic day, I saw that Kendra had given me the "you make my day" award. Timing is everything ;) and that random act of kindness, at just that moment, truly made my day.

The next day I had a few minutes to reply to some comments that I'd fallen behind on due to the craziness of the week, and some of you had said some really nice things. Again, the timing was perfect, and you all made my day.

So I'm passing this award on to all of you who regularly comment on this blog. You really do make my day. Sometimes more than you know. Thank you for taking time out of your lives to share a little of yourselves.

Since everyone should polish their awards once in a while, I cleaned this one up a bit. I tried to find its first incarnation so I could get the original graphics, but I didn't have a lot of success. I think I got back as far as 2006 and lost the trail. I didn't want to change it too much from the original, just "fix it" a bit. You're welcome to take the original version or the newer one.

* To those of you who read here regularly but don't comment, I know you're here :) and I love that you come back time and time again. Please accept an award for yourselves as well.

MP: I'm sorry, again, about Grandma. And yes, I know what it's like to fall behind in my reading. If I miss 3 days I often have over 100 posts to catch up on! :oO

omigoodness, you are so sweet! Thank you. I know I don't say it but I ought to: every time I see your name in my blog, it makes my day. It's good to have visitors. I'm glad to count you my friend!

Ok. This is a little embarassing. Not only am I very late getting this, I find I can't put it on my blog. Am I too late? Did it expire? Or (this might be likeliest) do I lack the mad skilz? (I'm an artist, not a programmer.) Email me, please, when you have a free moment: rjogarcia(at)yahoo(dot)com. Thx!

Rebecca: Comment #1: Thank you so much! That means a lot to me. (See? Made my day again! :D )

Rebecca: Comment #2: Lol! You crack me up. No you're not too late and it didn't expire! Apparently you lack the "mad skilz." Email in progress :)

Thanks, Melissa! (and thanks for pointing it out!) Like I said, I'm not doing much blog surfing these days, so yeah, I would have missed it!
