Kathleen Burkinshaw gave me the Liebster award! Then, I gave the Liebster Award to 10 other blogs that might have fewer than 200 followers. Even though I have more than 200 followers, Kathleen wanted to let me know how much my blog helped her. Thank you, Kathleen. What a great compliment you give me by not only being my friend but reading my blog and sharing it with others. I am honored.

Here are the 10 blogs that received the Liebster Award from me in no certain order:

    • Dear June,
      Thank you. There is no voting. Maybe I need to change the words to Kathleen gave me the Liebster Award and I gave it to the other people, too. That’s how they worded it, but you are right. It is definitely misleading. Thank you for always being there for me. You are a great friend.

      Never Give Up
