MORE THAN THANKFUL – PART ONE

GRATEFUL AND OVERWHELMED

Over the last few months I have received a number of blog awards for which I am eternally grateful.  All of you in the blogging community are very supportive, inspiring and encouraging.  You leave me speechless when it comes to expressing my appreciation.  I am overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness.

I thought I had filed the post of fellow bloggers who had nominated me for awards, only to find that they had been accidentally deleted.  I am so embarrassed by my error and I have tried hard to remember who made nominations and for what. If I missed anyone I am truly sorry.

I realize that a number of bloggers do not accept awards but I wanted to show you my appreciation.  There is no obligation to accept or pass them on.  I am grateful that you visit, like and comment on my blog.

Here is part one of the awards I have been nominated for.

FAMILY OF BLOGGERS AWARD

This is a wonderful award that makes me feel a part of a special group, part of a family.  I have David Kanigan at Lead. Learn.Live and Terry1954 to thank for nominating me.  I encourage you to visit his blog if you have not done so as of yet.

READERS APPRECIATION AWARD

This lovely award was created by Jennifer Avventura. Her reason for creating this award is a novel one indeed, and I quote, “I’m giving an award to those that have made this past year of blogging worthwhile. You have kept me on my toes, left comments, advice and tons of encouragement. For this I am grateful. Thank you.” I was nominated for this award by Deepa.  You will be thoroughly entertained and dazzled by her wonderful blog posts! Do pay her a visit. Thank you Deepa.

Here are the rules:

1.   Award your top 6 bloggers who have commented the most.
2.  Be thankful.
3.  You cannot award someone who has already been awarded. And you cannot     give the award back to me.
4.  Don’t forget to tell the bloggers you’ve awarded.
5.  If you don’t want to pass on this award, that’s okay too. Just admire it.

Nominees:
