My Lemonade Award & Awards

Thank you, Leslie, for my Lemonade Award!! The icon symbolizes the old saying 'When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!' I'm honored, because this award is for blogs that show Great Attitude or Gratitude, and I do try to keep my blog 'happy'!!

The rules for this blog award are simple:

1. Put the logo on your post or blog.

2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude or gratitude.

3. Link your nominees within your post.

4. Let the nominees know they have received the award by leaving a comment on their blog.

5. Share the love by linking back to the person you received the award from.

So....without further ado....the nominees for the Lemonade Award are..... (and if you DON'T want to play by the rules... you STILL get the Award!!! = )

Mik ~ This guy has so much GRATITUDE in life!!! While some of the things in his life would bring others down, he is truly grateful for the blessings in his life, he keeps a smile on his face and puts a smile on faces that surround him.

Kat ~ This lady is such an inspiration to me because she stays on top of her weight loss goals, keeps us posted about her progress, and is doing very well with it. And I think she displays GREAT ATTITUDE during it all.

'On-Ya'ma ~ Talk about GRATITUDE!! This wonderful lady DEFINES it!!

Jimmy ~ You can't talk about GREAT ATTITUDE and NOT mention Jimmy!! This guy will keep you in stitches with EVERY entry he writes, be prepared... when you leave Jimmy's journal, your sides will ache!!

Ken ~ Ken always displays a GREAT ATTITUDE, even when he has to work nights!! Pop in Sundays for a quick dose of Sunday Silliness.

OK, I owe you FIVE more... but that'll have to be on part II, son will be home soon, I HAVE to make dinner!! LOL!!!

Have a great week (and a great attitude!)
