Fabulously Freaky Friday

Chester here to welcome you to the most exciting part of the week.
For me, this ol' week seemed to stretch itself out as long as possible and the jewel we call Friday seemed as elusive as that doggone squirrel that taunts me daily. But now it has rolled around again to finally usher in the weekend.

If you remember, on Tuesday I confessed I had been a bad blogger and had failed to keep up with recognizing the great awards I have received. The very next day a surprise landed in my lap and I am still scratchin' my noggin wonderin' if Andrea over at Arise 2 Write had mistakenly awarded me this. She passed this award onto all who follow her blog saying that we each inspire her daily. I'll be honest, I didn't see this one comin' but I am gonna display it proudly just as a reminder that I can and should do something that will lift someone's spirits each day, just as she does with her words of wisdom. Thanks Andrea, although it was unexpected, it was highly pleasing to receive.

I am constantly amazed at the brilliant and unique talents I see on all the blogs I follow so it is hard for me to narrow it down to just a few. I can't imagine that any of you do not inspire so please pick it up and display it for all the blogging world to see if you so desire.

All that being said, I would like to personally hand out just one to a friend and fellow blogger. You may remember this blog I've mentioned before. It is Shelby Daleanna who up until last week lived in China. You see, she is now the adopted daughter of a couple who have waited a very long time for her. I have watched as their patience has been tried and tested over and over. They waited a little over 3 years even after turning in all their adoption paper work. It has been one seriously long roller coaster ride but now that she is here, it looks very much like she is a gem and is more than worth all the waiting. So I would like to personally hand this over to Chris and Bryan who have inspired me as I've watched them endure this long process with a great attitude. Please stop by and welcome Shelby to America-her forever home!

Now to the freaky part.
I've got no problem lettin' you know that I am simply beside myself that this work week is over.

Hope your weekend proves to be double the PLEASURE, double the FUN!!

Hi Chester
Congratulations on your Award and thanks for sharing - that is a very pretty Award we haven't seen before.
Like yourself we are not always great for keeping up with Awards although of course we really do appreciate them.
We have tried to set aside a Sunday as our Award thank you day. We must visit Shelby - sounds like a very inspiring story.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Andrea said...

You are very welcome! Your blog does inspire me with humor in the midst of crazy and sometimes difficult days. As you know, I love my dogs and Chester makes me laugh, too. I suppose you could say Chester is doing some therapy of his own with me.
Blessings, andrea

Another award for an outstanding houndie! Hooray.

And just when you think life can't become more fun, you end up with two Chesters not just one!

Love that Shot, Mom!

Hugs for a great jester filled weekend.

It also appears that you have learned how to double kitchen counter space, which should earn you a surfing award from every dog out there. :)
