May I get a drum roll please?
We have several awards to announce. I have spent countless hours reviewing blogs. I am just so overwhelmed by the amazing talent I find online. The words and pictures of each of your blogs means so much to me. I only regret that I have not more time to spend on each of your blogs. Reading them always causes me to come away feeling motivated, uplifted and inspired. There is so much talent and love to find that you cannot help but feel moved after visiting.
I could not decide who gets what!
It has been difficult to select who gets what, and even more difficult because I know that we must pass these on and not continually award them to the same recipients, however much they are deserved. (share the wealth - kind of thing) This means I must venture off and not simply use the list I found posted at Cheri's or Icy's. That is not what the awards are all about and that would be cheating. :-)
The essence is you!
The essence of the award, as I see it is to encourage, appreciate and uplift one another, but even more to acknowledge the labor of love performed by the many blog creators out here. The love is apparent as I read your posts and view your pictures. You have opened your hearts and your life to the reader with such a generosity of spirit, that one cannot help but feel your presence. It is there when I open a comment that you kindly took the time to leave me.
Our blog awards are about us. We embody so many different talents and interests but the biggest is love.
I've attached the awards for:
Annie - Sunday's Child Lives at Annie's House
Cherie - This Side of Town
Christy - A Hint of Poetry
DeAnna - Write Moms
Geri - My Thinkin' Blog
Goyz - Health Supplement
Icy - Wandering Thought
Lanne - Crocodile Soup
Lizzie - Lizzie's Choice
T @ Picture This!
Come as you are!
This is an award ceremony you won't read about in the papers. No one will make glowing or derogatory comments about what you wore when you picked yours up, unless you have a web cam. Forgive me for breaking a lot of the rules.
There are a few rules.
In Glorious Awards you can read more about the rules from my wonderful friend Icy, and there are two other awards which you will find on my side bar. I don't want anyone to feel pressured to rush right out and bestow these awards immediately. Life has enough pressures.
Let's just take this moment to show each other our appreciation.
It is simply another way we can express our gratitude and appreciation to one another for doing the best we can on our blogs. "Awards from Me to You" can be found on Cherie's blog. Here you will find more information regarding the Cupcake award and the Lovely Blog Award.
Copy, paste and share.
You simply need to copy and paste the awards, the one's you choose to keep, as many or as few, then kindly pay forward. From what I've read all of you have lots of love to share. So when you have a moment take time to share the love, and I am looking forward to seeing your awards displayed proudly on your pages!
Take care & God bless!
