Awards, Gratitude, and Paying It All Forward To YOU, My Readers...

I received this award from Kathy @ "Emptynester" earlier in April. THANKS Kathy! Sorry it took me so long to post about it!
The month of April has been named Tell 'Em You're A Fan Month. So, let your favorite blog sites know that you're a fan, just as Kathy did with me! Thank you so much Kathy! I was so honored when I read your comment! This is a really fun award!

Now, here are the rules:
1. Leave a comment or an email for your favorite blogger telling them that you are a fan of the site.
2. Feel free to copy and paste the award, or you can get the code at Sited and Blogged to present to your blog friend or post on your site when it is awarded to you.
3. When you receive more than one fan, put the number of fans you have received under the image.
4. The more fans you receive the better!
So, what are you waiting for...tell someone you're a fan of their blog...HAVE FUN!
Attitude of Gratitude Award
Libby, from "Twirl and Twist" honored me with this award recently. Thanks Libby, I count this quite a privilege coming from such a lady of grace yourself! Thank you!

To my readers...please visit Libby at her lovely blog, "Twirl and Twist". You will love her sense of style, charm, and wit.

The Rules of Accepting and Sharing this Award
1.Put the logo on your blog or post
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show an attitude of gratitude
3. Link to your nominees within your post
4.Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received this award
5.Share the love and link to this post and the person who nominated you for the award.
6. Tell us how you've come to have an attitude of gratitude.

My attitude of gratitude most likely stems from my maternal grandmothers influence on my life. Her name was Odessa Inez, most knew her as Inez most of her 92 years of life. I simply knew her as Grandma, and her life impacted mine greatly since she cared for me as a little girl till I began school. Everything she did in life she did with gratitude, and I never recall hearing her say anything unkind about a soul. So, I guess you could say she "Payed her spirit of gratitude on to me". And now I will do the same for each of you, my readers. Instead of selecting 10 people, I select you all! Please take this award and post on your blog from me! You each deserve it!

Be Blessed,~CC Catherine

Thank you for the information concerning Claudia. Last week was the first time she visited my blog and left comments. I tried to write her several times and felt badly they did not reach her. I will put her on my blog roll as you suggested and hopefully it remedies the problem. I appreciate your offer to pass on this information so she knows I tried to touch base and acknowledge her visit. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for the fan award. It means so very much to me. I love your blog too. I always look forward to "what's cookin' and your lovely Tablescapes. Your feelings for your grandmother are like mine are. My grandmother was in my life from a very early age on. She took care of us and nurtured us and loved us all with every ounce of her being. I always feel she is will me.

Thanks again Catherine I really do appreciate your kindness.
