A message from the creator of this award:
"Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say its authors. This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

- I am going to try really hard not to be so obsessive about my house. I seriously clean some part of this house each and every day. I never relax because I'm always cleaning- I do not take any moments of Ali's nap time to relax, and when I do, I feel really guilty for not using the time more "wisely". I've gotten so bad that I never feel a sense of accomplishment when I do have the whole place cleaned. I really need to stop stressing out about it and realize that it isn't what matters- and really, my house is probably over-cleaned... and REALLY - who cares!?
- I also am going to work on softening my heart towards my mother -in-law. I need to stop being selfish and realize that she isn't doing anything she does to be mean or infringe on our lives in anyway. She really is a messed up old woman who doesn't have anything else besides us, and I need to embrace that.
- Another resolution I have is to not feel contempt towards my husband for not helping me as much as I think he should. When I really stop and assess the situation, I've got it better than most women. My husband does a lot more then what I ask of him- he is an amazing man and I am so lucky, and I need to remember that. I also need to ask for his help instead of just assume he should know when I need it- after all, he is a guy... and I've learned they're pretty straight forward in their assumptions of the world.
