Received Inspirational Blog Award tonight

My first blog award!!!!!!!

I received this award from the Crazy Purple Mama blog.  Thank you so much!
I am told this award is for bloggers who inspire others with positivity and creativity. The rules for accepting the award are:
1. Put the logo on your blog or within your post.

2. Pass the award to 12 bloggers.

3. Link the nominees within your post.

4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.

5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
So here are the twelve who inspire me.  It's really hard to choose because I could name all of you as the 100 that I follow are all inspiring to my life!!! Some I would like to nominate don't accept blog rewards so the choice is hard but here goes:
1~The Sampler Girl Blog--Tanya
2~Carolina Stitcher-Faye
3~Primitive Betty's--Betty
4~The Olive Cottege--Suzanne
5~The Twist Family--Beth
6~The Cranberry Chronicle--Heidi
7~Exemplars from the Heart--Vilma
9~Dip Diddley Designs--Jolene
10~The Thread Gatherer--Deb

11~ Words and Blooms--Melissa

12~~ Needleprint blog
There are many many others I could list so I hope you understand that really all of you readers are just as important and inspiring to me.
I truly love writing and sharing my joys. Thanks again for this award and I will leave you with an inpsirational verse I like to read and try to apply (sometimes hard):
"When we act as gardeners of meaning, we actively select the values that will serve as our guides, planting them in our hearts, so they may influence our decision-making process every day. As we do this, we begin to define ourselves as individuals and establish that we have Real value......."
From The Velveteen Principles for Women book in discussing the childrens' classic, The Velveteen Rabbit.
