"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"...and I love it. Christmas is such a wonderful time of year, isn't it? We all seem to be a little closer to who we should be all year.

My friend, Kat, has started my Christmas celebrating off with a bang. She has awarded me with a Christmas Spirit Award. Thanks, Kat. I am so honored.

The SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS AWARD: What exactly is this award? Quite simply, it is for those who have a generous and giving nature. Those who care about others. Those who have a kind word to say or a broad shoulder to lean on when others need that. Pass it along to those wo have touched your heart with their kind and giving and caring nature.

And, so I will pass this award along to Angie at With Faith...Angie and Nancy Grayce at Too Wonderful For Me. Merry Christmas, Ladies! Go here to get the code for award.

This is the perfect chance to finally thank you for the adorable little gift bag you gave me when we were together. You know, at the time we were so talkative and I was also giving out my Hershey's Chocolates, that I didn't even examine all the adorable little things you had in that bag. Destiny was as thrilled with everything as I was! You are a truly thoughtful, giving person. Thanks again!

Tonja, you brought me to tears, again!!! I came over to visit you this morning and was SHOCKED to see what you gave me! You really are the nicest person! I didn't know at first that it was passed on to me because, well, you know... With Faith... instead of By Faith... haha! You know, really With Faith would have been more correct! What do you think, y'all? ;) Maybe I should change it. Sorry, I couldn't resist!

THANK YOU again for such a thoughtful gift! My day will be full of smiles because of YOU!
Love you-
Angie xoxo

Congratulations on your award. Sounds like you deserved that. I'm sure you are a very special person. I seen you are from Alabama also. Our church went on a mission trip close to you (I think). We went to Montgomery (Smiley Court). We helped a church there called Hope Community Church. It was such a blessing. Have a nice weekend.
