birds of a feather

Why is this goose so sad?

He just looks like he's going to cry any second.

I think he's lonely.

When we're alone too much we get cranky like this fellow!

Remember Barbra Streisand's song, People?

It goes something like:

"People who need people are the luckiest people in the world."
Or in this case, should we say?
"Geese who need geese are the luckiest geese in the world."

Well, I'm as excited as this goose below because I'm not alone. If I want good company to share my day, I just turn on my computer and all you lovely people are just a click away. I was reminded of this the other day when the most gracious Elaine at Home n About awarded me with the Lovely Blog award.

How surprised and pleased I was! Of course, I want to pass this jewel on to others, but I realized that many of you don't accept awards. I understand the time constraints and burdens some feel around awards so I'm taking the liberty to change the rules a little. I'm just going to throw a few of the blogs that I enjoy out there and you can feel free to accept and pass it on if you would like. I wouldn't want to put any unwanted obligations on any of you. I have to say, it is so hard to choose only a few out of so many creative, interesting, welcoming and lovely blogs. The following are just a few of those that have crossed my mind tonight.

I enjoy each one of these for various reasons and I'm sure you will too!

Home Haven Ministry
Once upon a Plate
Food with Style
Rather be Blogging
The Project Table
Six in one hand
Frugal Fine Living
Aiken House and Gardens

Birds of a feather flock together!

Blessings, Marsha

What a great analogy, Marsha! Blogging is like that for me. Something I can do in my quiet time but truly feel surrounded by friends.
