Sandee, from Comedy Plus gave me the You Make Me Smile Award yesterday, and it's fantastic. This award says, "You lift me up" throughout what looks like a four leaf clover. It seems to suggest how lucky we are to have the bloggers who inspire and support us each day. I think the bloggers who create these awards are special. Because of their kindness we have a symbol of appreciation for our friends, and beautiful designs with uplifting sayings to display on our blogs.
The Smile Award was created by Bridget at "...And miles we go before we sleep..."
and here are the words on her post..
The thing that I love most about blogging is that I learn so much about a person just by reading their blog. I have met MANY wonderful people with wonderful stories to tell and I am grateful every day for each person that I have the pleasure of crossing paths in life with.
I wanted to create something special for the top ten people who have inspired me through their blogging; the stories they tell and the lives that they lead with grace and dignity. I visit their blogs for inspiration and encouragement."
Isn't that great? In honor of Bridget's creation and Sandee's supportive friendship, I posted the inspirational and supportive comments from ten of my blogging friends.
I wish I could pass this award on to more bloggers, since so many blogs offer me inspiration everyday. However, since that isn't possible, I selected ten of the blogs who comment the most on A Nice Place In The Sun, and listed some of their comments. Supportive comments are the most uplifting inspirations in every bloggers life, so I thought it most appropriate. Thanks again, Sandee for another thing to smile about, in addition to Comedy Plus, and thanks for reminding me to get band-aids!
Here are the buddies who make me smile and offer their inspiring comments everyday:
Christy from Totally Fabulous,
That sounds like a great book for kids, I know my little daughter would love this one. I can almost see you in that bookstore! Ann, I swear you should have had ten kids! I can see you being happy surrounded by children! Great review:)
Here's Christy again,
Sandee, from Comedy Plus, (I waited two days for someone to remind me to get bad-aids and guess who did? She was the only one. LOL !)
Band Aids Ann, buy Band Aids. What a great story. Sounds about right too. I hope your days goes much better than your morning started out. :)You write so very well. This post is an outstanding example of why I come here everyday. You are so gifted. You so deserve this award. Have a great day Ann. :)

..You have touched people with your writing. You are a blue-ribbon blogger!” I am proof that this is true, Ann! Congratulations, you are a true blog fairy yourself!

Congratulations on your Blogging Star Award. I'm so happy for you. I've said it before, I'll say it again ... you rock. I liked that you took the time to trace the Star back to its creator.
A 'self-diagnosed impulse writer.' Made me laugh. (smile) You just keep on keepin' on, because you do it well.
Oh, hey, thanks for shining the star my way. Super nice of you."
Wow, what an award. I realize you always bless me with such awards. I was laughing so much about you and your impulses.. I remember dropping such comments when you gave me my Maiden/Virgin (oops) award, and when Jos did a review on my blog..Haha, it reminds me of myself, just that you managed to express all those little brainwaves in my mind, so good on you!
I am thankful you are such a star, and yet still bother with little blogs like mine. I am thankful, and take care, Ann :)
Nonsense, Fun, Tears, Happiness, And Anger All Rolled in One!
Thanks Ann, I feel so honored..as always your one of the best!! I post about this, this weekend
Dawn with Twisted Sister Totally Pissed Off, who is to modest to show it but she is one of the nicest bloggers I know!
Thanks so much Ann! You really are the nicest blogger I know :) Nick, from Anything Goes,

All of you have provided me with the gift of friendship in addition to what Bridget so articulately wrote, "special for the top ten people who have inspired me through their blogging; the stories they tell and the lives that they lead with grace and dignity. I visit their blogs for inspiration and encouragement."
Please pass this badge to the ten blogs who have inspired or encouraged you with their gift of friendship. Then link it back to the blog who gave it to you, in addition to the blog who created this wonderful
