Wednesday's Words, Images, and Awards

Ivanhoe bestowed
this award upon me and
I wish now to thank

her for thinking of
me and Small Reflections to
honor in this way.

Anyone who leaves
comments on my humble posts
regularly here

or reads and responds
at Sacred Ruminations
makes MY day as well!

If this describes you
please feel free to 'snag' it now
and pass it along ;--)

And now ... for today's Tennis Haiku Update!

Venus got derailed
by Kuznetsova last night
so there will be no

Williams sister's match
after all ... How sad for us
and for them as well.

I am currently
watching Janknovic against

Later Nadal will
play James Blake and that should be
a great match to view.

Congratulations, Friend, on receiving the lovely awards, and thank you for sharing with me and other bloggy friends. <3

I appreciate you, too. Thank you so much for your encouraging comments! :)

Thank you for the award! I've already added it to my album (along with the other one)--it makes my blog look even prettier!

Once again, visiting your blog has made me perkier! It's six-thirty in the morning, I've got about thirty minutes before I need to get Nathan up, and I'm feeling cheerful and ready to start my day. Thank you!

MamaZen – Thanks … I hope you snagged a copy of the first one because you certainly ‘make my day’ with your posts and comments ;--)

Akelamalu – ‘Tis my pleasure to share with others like yourself!

Sonya – I appreciate your kind words and feel similarly blessed when I visit your blog.

Mary – I’m happy to ‘make your day’ and am grateful folks like yourself accept me ‘as I am’ … tennis obsession and all.

Bindhiya – I’m happy you decided to visit and enjoyed what you found here. I look forward to visiting your blog as time permits a bit later … after I figure out what I’m going to post for my T-13 today.

Betty – Thanks. I understand and will look forward to seeing who you decide to share it with as time permits.

Joyce – Your most welcome for everything and I hope you enjoyed the birthday celebrations ;--)

Karen – Wow … you’ve got the ‘technical’ stuph down these days, eh? I love the way Typepad lets you create ‘an awards page’ and will look forward to visiting later. I’m happy to have lifted your spirits this morning even before I’ve had a cup of coffee. Ya know it’s just 3:42 am in So Cal, right?

I always enjoy finding comments when I arise … so thanks to each of you for visiting. Happy Thursday to you all!
Hugs and blessings,
