Awards, Poem, Meme and GREEN PARADE

Bhawana and Vidhya, have given me this beautiful "A PERFECT BLEND OF FRIENDSHIP AWARD" .......

Thank you so much Bhawana and Vidhya, you both have made my day, Hug you friends!!!

Purpose of the Friendship Award
To send love and acknowledgment to men and women, who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy. It's been a blessing and an inspiration to meet all of you through your wonderful blogs.

I would love to pass this to all my blogger friends. Since it has to be linked, I have mentioned few. Hope they would pass this to others who have not received it :)

Enjoy friends!!!

Bhawana also passed me "Wlyde Woman Award" and the beautiful FRIENDSHIP poem.....

Why Do We Need Friends?

We need friends for many reasons, all throughout the season.
We need friends to comfort uswhen we are sad,
and to have fun with us when we are glad.

We need friends to give us good advice,
We need someone we can count on,
and treat us nice.

We need friends to remember us
one we have passed sharing memories that will always last.

Spread the poem of friendship......

I would like to spread it to all my FRIENDS who visit me everyday!!!!

That was quick, Vani! Thank you so much for rolling the ball:) I bought a small bottle gourd just yesterday to try out that chutney - My husband complains that I do not do justice to being a Tamilian - no chutneys at my place, so I have got to rectify that notion quickly:)
