  1. You have a lovely, insightful blog. I love Laura Ingalls Wilder, too. I have created a blog award called The Candle Lighter Award. It is to recognize the work of blogs/bloggers who light the world in their own way with their optimism, messages, etc. The link for the award is here. http://believeanyway.wordpress.com/the-candle-lighter-award/
    You can put the award picture on in your widgets. You aren’t required to pass the award on, but I hope that you know of other deserving bloggers. If you pass it along could you let me know the link to their blog(s) so I can ad them to my list? Thank you for your work, dear Candle Lighter.

    • Thank you for reading my blog and liking it! I feel honored to receive The Candle Lighter Award. I am new at this blogging scene, so will attempt to add the award to my widgets. We seem to be of the same kindred spirit. Keep the faith and light going!
