After that I also added, "And the good news is, we always know Deon will comment."
Have any of you seen the funny comments from Deon? I get asked a lot how I know her, so I figured I'd share the connection. Deon and I went to the same church back in Illinois, and she and her husband were good friends with my parents. Her kids were some of the first I have ever babysat - and DEFINITELY some of the best! Deon and I lost touch for probably a good fifteen (maybe) years, and I somehow found her blog - and stalk it.
Her blog is one of those that cheers me up, makes me laugh, and just shows exactly who she is. She is witty, she is crafty, she is ever-so-fashionable, and is listed under top five kindest people I have ever met. She is genuine to the end, and has a heart made of pure gold. The funny thing is....I still haven't seen Deon in person since the blogs rekindled our friendship, yet oddly, via blog, I still feel so close to her!
It is because of that - I wanted to give her this award.
This award would be a lot cooler if I was better at photoshop....still learning in my "free" time. AND there is melting frozen yogurt waiting for me....but really, the main reason is the photoshop.
I love you, Deon - you are amazing. Now - go visit her blog HERE. She's hilarious.
BDEM: I think it will be eating the frozen yogurt that is melting on my end-table. I have been blessed with not one, but TWO cold sores! WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS?! My mouth is on FIRE! Hopefully the frozen yogurt will make me feel numb. If only it could help numb the emotional scarring that comes with my leprosy as well!
