Big hugs and tons of thanks goes out to Dawn at Boy oh Boy oh Boy who gave Tony and I the prestigious "Follow Worthy Blog Award" that was started by Angie over at 5 Vinez Monkeys.

This came at a great time and lifted our spirits since we are feeling the stress of all these blogger technical difficulties.

Today is also my mother's birthday. It has been 5 very painful years since her death. She was so young and had so much life yet to live. She would have been such a proud Oma. My mom would have been so honored to help me celebrate my very first Mother's day. I miss you mom so very very much and I'll never understand why you had to leave us so young!

We are honored that our story about our hidden treasure in China, our daughter, our miracle Halainah Grace has touched the lives of others.

We hope to be back up and running full force very soon.
Thank you so much Dawn, your sweet comments have always brightened my days!
