Thank you Dawn of Thoughts From Along the Broken Road for nominating me for the Thinking Blogger Award. Let me share with you what she wrote about my blog:
Rachel is one of the sweetest bloggers on my regular read-list. SheThank you Dawn for these sweet and kind words. I really feel honored. Your kindness is truly a reward by itself.
always has a kind word to say and her blog posts are a celebration of the simple things in life. So often, when i read her blog, I am reminded of how far kindness can go, and how important it is to appreciate all the moments we are given, both big and small.
I also love visiting Dawn's blog. The best thing I love about her site, is her Little Bits of Happy where she randomly shares about things, people and events that make her smile and give her moments of joy.
