Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

FAMILY is the most valued TREASURE in my heart.   I am thankful for my husband and Missy.  I am surrounded by trinkets given to me by family members in the space I spend much time, my desk.  The collage of drawings were drawn by my great nieces and nephews during a stay over when they were very young.  Having no children of my own these are very special to me.  They hang in my office.

I am Part of the WordPress Family Award


A huge thank you to BLOGAGAINI for the WordPress Family Award.  I never feel I am deserving of such nominations or awards because I do not feel my work is good enough as others.  In my opinion everyone else is more deserving.  I do appreciate this and will keep it close.

I have my own nominations to bloggers who carry forward the sense of community and collaboration in this online, virtual, world.  This does not mean those not listed do not.  We all do reach out and connect with each other.

How to accept the “WordPress Family Award”:

  • Display the award logo on your blog.
  • Link back to me (as the one who nominated you.)
  • Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family and let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them.

Fond Memory

On the way to give out much needed hugs.  Passed up this classic.  It reminded me of the days when I was growing up, watching I Love Lucy, the old black and white TV, Mom wearing the apron when cooking, my younger sister helping her bake a cake, my brother with his yoyo, my sister and I dressed alike, the old rotary phone, my Dad watching Combat.  So many fond and priceless memories, long ago, but never forgotten.
