Awards... Awards are a funny thing. As I mentioned before in one of those "revealing" posts about "Twenty-Three Things You'd Never Guess About Me" (or something close to that!), I generally shy away from recognition. I am much better at gift giving than receiving. So it is with Awards. I am just learning to be a Blogger, but I have had sweet, wonderful people recognize my efforts.
I would also like to add: While I was having my "BlogStruggle," I was feeling like I didn't have enough to share with the blogging community. In a rare moment of bravery, I chose to share my concerns in a post. Truth: I spent the next few days crying over the sweet responses. Your support REALLY did make a difference. Truly... Thank you.
(It is a strange feeling to have something happen at school and think to myself: Hey! I could write about that! I'm excited about blogging again).

These are all wonderful blogs. Click on the button and take a peek!
First up is a brand new blog: Teaching Living History. She's so new, she has only one follower--and that would be me. Why now show her some Bloggy love and stop by...
Piece of Cupcake Life. Melissa also awarded me the Lovely Blog Award--which just shows how blogs link together! There is a lot of fun stuff going on on that site. You may recognize her from the mega-wedding contest...
Finally, Over-Caffeinated and Optimistic. This blogger is a consistent poster--yet, at last check, she only had 14 followers. I think you're going to like what you see and decide to follow her too!
In the middle of my Blogging Meltdown, these sweet BlogFriends sent over an extra dose of kindness and it really did help me get back on track. I want you to know your caring spirit rates a Top 10 in my book!
I was blessed to receive the Top 10 Award from:
Staci at Going Nutty
Chrissy B at Buzzing with Ms. B.
Melissa at Piece of Cupcake Life
I was so touched to receive this flowered treasure from:
Emmy at Daydreams of a Student Teacher
Mor at A Teacher's Treasure
Michelle at Apples and ABCs
and Tara at 4th Grade Frolics
Lisa at A Teacher's Bag of Tricks gave me the Versatile Blogger Award and I never thanked her formally. Thanks, Lisa for the honor!
If you read Corner on Character, you know why I stop there each morning for a daily dose of inspiration. Barbara awarded me the Favorite Follower award., but I think I should be awarding her a favorite FollowED award. So, Barbara, I award this award right back to you.
