Four other splendid ladies who bring me sunshine each time they visit my blog or I theirs are:

Deb at Midlife Poet

Bev at How Sweet The Sound

So why not pass it on? Just grab the button and honor five of your most honored blogs that bring you SUNSHINE!

       My Sister My Sunshine My Best Friend

Vanessa means butterfly and she is truly a beautiful one!
Just when I thought my world was coming undone,
She rescued me and breathed life into my floundering soul.
She gave me back confidence and hope that someone else stole.
A sister you would be honored to have to cherish and love.
Certainly Heaven sent me her as sure as there are doves.
You don't get to choose your sisters in life, but friends we do
And as my best friend there is noone truer than you.
You are the sunshine that warms my heart and heals my mind,
In your brilliant rays you shower me with love so kind,
Gentle and unconditional, knowing no limits -
We commune as kindred spirits.
So Vanessa, my SUNSHINE I honor you with this award
Thank you for always being there for me, God will reward
The kindness, the love, the giving person that you are -
For Vanessa you are one of His brightest stars.
You are humble, loving, generous, caring, compassionate too,
Vanessa the world is a better place because of all you do.
