If A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words, Then This Award Must Be Worth A Million

Sorry it took me so long to post this dear Sarah, I am at a loss for words over this wonderful award. I've cried, I've smiled and cried some more. This one is a real touchy feely award if you know what I mean, Thank You Dearest Sarah!!
Isn't it BEAUTIFUL! But why is it so beautiful? This award has a history (a special and touching story) all of its own, yes, it's a piece of art, it's inspiring, and it's heartfelt!! It is perception, it's growth, it's personality, it's individualism, it's a bond, it's a warm fuzzy feeling, it's life's ups and downs, it's a connection / bond to others that we meet and greet, it is....
An amazing AWARD indeed and graciously bestowed upon me by Sarah of Cottage Garden Studios. Sarah is an amazing woman, she is a conqueror and passionate soul. If you haven't visited her blog, you must, you will love her journeys.
