Gratitude is the memory of the heart. ~Jean Baptiste Massieu translated from French

I accept these acknowledgments with heartfelt appreciation, especially for the honor of highlighting other very special blogs.
Please make it a point to visit their creative and inspiring blogs as soon as you can. And don’t forget the nominees listed below!
I also want to take this opportunity to apologize to those bloggers I follow and who follow me, as I’m not always able to get to your posts as quickly as I wish. My goal is to savor and make my comments worthy of the time and talent and thought (and heart and soul) that you put into your posts. Thank you all for sharing so much!
