Byrum Spiritual Award

It has been a long winter and I've had some difficult transitions in my life this winter. Many of my online friends have continued to inspired me and helped me just by being their selves. It's been awhile since I've given this Award out but I would like to pass it on to some of the ladies here on blogger land that have encouraged me to continue despite my personal problems and despite the economy. To me the greatest spiritual gift one can give is encouragement and support to others! So I want to thank

Sarah of "Cottage Garden Studios"
Becca of "Magical Seasons"
Jeanne of "The Candy Corn Chronicles"
Suzie of "Cat In The Moon"
Brenda of "Wicked Wool Gathering"
Dede of "Brightest Blessings Wiccans"
Cindy of "Shaggy Hag Decor"

and my
special friend Heather of "Witch Hollow Primitives" who is greatly missed!!

So ladies
I hope you will pass my humble award on to those who have inspired you and your
offerings this looooong winter this year!
