Lemons to Lemonade

I was having a difficult few days and didn't have any words to share when I sat down to get caught up on a few bloggy things and what did I find? A beautiful gift from a beautiful person!

I'd like to give thanks to Sema for gifting me with the Lemonade Award!

A Lemonade Award is given to bloggers that show a positive attitude, gratitude,and a willingness to share their ideas, support and online friendship. In other words, people who make lemonade when they get lemons!

Sema shares her amazing mantra cards and beautiful thoughts at her blog AffirmArt. Isn't that a fantastic name? She's also a fellow participant in Wishcasting Wednesdays and her wishes are always an inspiration to me. Thank you so much for this award, Sema!

Here are the rules for the award:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 7 blogs that show great Gratitude and/or Attitude.
3. Be sure to list and link your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they have received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.

The following 7 blogs have blessed me and helped me in my journey and I would love to thank them for it.

1. Tabitha @ ♥I Choose Bliss♥

2. Tara @ Uphill Idealist

3. Genie Sea @ Reality Insanity

4. Rachelle @ Magpie Girl

5. Claudia @ On a Limb with Claudia

6. Sarah @ Cottage Garden Studio

7. Tabitha @ The Knitting Journeyman Redux

I'm considering this my article for Simply Kind Tuesdays because I want to celebrate the generosity and support I've found here in this blogging community. The building of spirit and kindness shown is a beautiful thing to witness and experience. Thank you all for your warmth and wisdom.
