When Life Hands You Lemons...

last week, Leslie from Fluff & Nonsense (an aweseome blog you need to go check out!) awarded me the prestigious and much sought after

Lemonade Stand Award.
The award is given out for bloggers that show great attitude and gratitude.  I want to congratulate Leslie for winning this award.  An Army wife, a mommy, a homeschooler and a quilter.  Our family thanks her family from the bottoms of our hearts for the service and sacrifice she and them have given through the years to keep our country and its citizens safe.
She loves her children and it shines through in everything she does!

On the quilty/crafty side of things, I found Leslie because of this quilt.  Which when finished, looks like this!

I am humbled and amazed.  LOL  If only she knew what went on on the inside of my head and heart sometimes.
But, thank you Leslie.
God is good!

These are the rules of accepting the award.
Put the Lemonade logo on your blog or within your post.
Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude or gratitude.

How many people do you know that are people who can take the lemons Life hands them, and make lemonade?  These women are just a sprinkling of those out there who are making a difference one lemon squeeze at a time.
To all of these are blessings and I'm so very thankful you're my friends!
