My first award!
I received my first award from my good friend Kim at and I'm so blessed! The Lord has been reminding me lately of the importance of the smile, so this award was a fitting token, like a little sign, to keep me on the right path.
The smile has been used as an advertising gimmic, an email enhancement, and a way to charm. But, it's so much more than that when we love the Lord.
The smile is like a flashing sign that says, "I love Him, and He loves me. So, I can love others freely." Thanks, Kim, for the great honor!
THE SMILE AWARD's rules are:
1. The recipient must link back to the awards creator (it's right on the award)
2. You must post these rules if you receive the award.
3. You must choose 5 people to receive the award after receiving it yourself.
4. You must fit the characteristics of the recipient of the award (see below.)
5. You must post the characteristics of a recipient.

Characteristics for the Smile Award:
1. Must display a cheerful attitude. (not necessarily at all times--we are all human).
2. Must love one another.
3. Must make mistakes.
4. Must learn from others.
5. Must be a positive contributor to blog world.
6. Must love life.
7. Must love kids.
These ladies make me smile! My 5 picks to receive the award are:
1. Crystal Paine, because she's such a help to me as I learn extreme frugality!
2. Rhonda, because I love her blog and she inspires me to sew and create!
3. Kristi, because she's my coupon mentor and friend!
4. Jeana, because her sense of humor is terrific and she makes me laugh!
5. Teresa, because her teaching on her monthly food budget still amazes me!
Now, I'm off to smile at my family!
