    is truly a wonderful compliment!
    Thank You!
    I have been tagged! I’m not a fan of memes but I am a fan of promoting bloggers worth being read (of which you are certainly one of them, both here and on Twitter!) So, I will follow suit and post my list as well, but please forgive my delay as I have a few things ‘on my plate’ that would limit the time and thought it would take to create such a list at this time. That said, it’s coming:-)
    Thanks again,

  3. Thank you so much for including me in this list. You are too kind. 🙂 Keep posting great things and I’ll keep reading.

    Love the inspiration and encouragement you share so generously. Now, off to do some reading & catching up:)
