Proximidade Award

Lady Katherine from has honored me with the Proximadade Award, which translated from Portuguese means, "This blog contributes to and supports or believes in close friendships." "This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."I am passing this award to eight bloggers, each of whose blog provides much warmth to blogland.

Lady Katherine from Lady Katherine's Parlor has tagged me with a photo tag. First, the rules are simple. As follows:

6th Picture Meme!
1.Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.
2.Go to the 6th Folder, then pick the 6th picture in that folder.
3,Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture.
4.Tag 6 other people that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.

I have been tagged! Here is my photo: 6th Folder, 6th Photo... "Flowers" from a window box that were taken in June '08 while visiting the Billy Graham Conf. Ctr, The Cove, in Ashville, NC. I love all flowers! There is nothing more beautiful, unless it's my grandchildren Tyler & Cate! What drew us to The Cove that weekend was a visiting author, Larry Crabb, that was a featured speaker for two days. Both my husband and I had read his book, "Shattered Dreams" and it changed our life at a time that needed much healing and restoration. We felt compelled to finally get to meet him and learn more about his writings. If you ever get a chance to go visit The's well worth the visit. These little posies are just one teency reason. They greet you in lovely flowerboxes outside the main building which is nested within the Carolina Mountains...if one could feel any closer to God, it would be in the center of the highest part of a mountain..and this is where I found photo #6, & God was there too! =)

Since I have been tagged I am also tagging the following blogs, that I have also given an award to.

prof en retraite -

I was wondering if you'd come by to see who had won. I hope you read the other comments so far. You seem to be a "favorite" to many. I figured if you hadn't come by by late tomorrow afternoon, I would email you, but now I don't need to!!!

Email me your info...and by Tuesday, I'll have this out in the mail to you!

Congratulations and thank you for sharing.

I am responding to this in my post tomorrow.
