You Are My Sunshine

What sunshine is to flowers, 
smiles are to humanity. 
These are but trifles, to be sure; 
but, scattered along life's pathway, 
the good they do is inconceivable.   
Joseph Addison  

Just look at that flower. 

Isn't it beautiful?
I could get lost in it today.

Deepest thanks to Penny for sending me some sunshine today.
Go see her at The Hen House, it's always worth the time.

The truth is, I clutch it desperately today.

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles.  
It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

Allow me to pass some sunshine on to some other wonderful blogs:

Chicken Boys -- When I visit, I feel like I am at their house with my feet up having a great time with friends.

Delightfully Diva-ish -- She is wonderfully warm and wickedly funny. 

Laughing with Angels -- An exquisitely beautiful blog, and pure peaceful inspiration to me for more reasons than I can list.

The Lemon Cottage -- This is a fast-growing blog for good reason, she's brilliant and wonderfully fun, too.  She is also a tax preparer, so she is crazy-busy right now, so cut her a break until 4/15.  

The T-Cozy -- Going to her blog is like going over to a good girlfriend's house . . . the kind who makes good tea (the right way) and serves it with charm and warmth and her whole house is like a treasure trove of (mostly) vintage loveliness.

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.  
~ James Barrie

Thank you, Penny and my fellow bloggers, mentioned and unmentioned.

My daddy sang that to me as a little girl, and now I sing it to my daughter.

Aww Bless you are welcome - my flower cheered me too.

Thanks for the tips on adding a link - I'll give it a try.

I was commenting on another blog where a friend of hers had said,
" my goodness your followers will think you have the perfect life "... that we do tend to post up beat & quirky things even if there is a load of S**t going on in our lives - but sometimes we do touch on the more personal matters and other bloggers can be very supportive.

I've blogged about ill health / depression etc when the time was right and others have done the same. I think generally we try to get a happy medium in our blogs.

Anyway, people don't need to come back if they don't want to !!!

Have a great weekend xx

WOW thank you so much! How lovely -what an honour! The flower is just perfect! And I Love the description of the blogs you've awarded.... looking forward to having a browse and a cup of tea!

Loving your snow over there.... what a dumping! We don't ever get snow here in Auckland... so it's all a complete novelty to me.

Dear Renee,

Perfect timing to be receiving the Sunshine Award fro Penny, as winters snow has kept you at home.

From the short time that our paths have crossed, the award is most fitting and well deserved, as you have always brought a smile to our lives.


Best wishes,
