I've been awarded an award. Hmmm, that sounds strange. I've been granted an award. Ah, better.
Pepper thinks I'm nice. Thank you, Pepper. I'm sure there are some who would argue with you over this, but I have it in my greedy little hands now, and I'm not turning loose!!
The rule is, like almost all blogging awards, is to name five recipients to whom I wish to pass the torch. So, all else aside and on to the nominations.......
- Sandra and Patti
I'm naming these two together because I'm nominating them for the same reason, the kindness each shows to animals in distress. Sandra is actively involved in rescuing and fostering abused, abandoned and neglected animals. Patti recently took two little injured four-legged babies into her home. I can't think of a greater kindness than to rescue a defenseless animal and give it a chance at a better life.
- Loving Annie
Annie never says a bad word about anyone. Even the man who broke her heart. And now, Annie is being rewarded with finding another man who is more than making up for the past. Being kind and keeping good karma is worth it, and Annie is an example of that.
Dawn is another who never says unkind things in her blog. She is upbeat, caring, and has the most positive attitude I can think of. Even when she is hurting over something that another human has done without thought for Dawn's feelings, she finds the "happy seeds" in it and plants them for the future.
Casey has a tender heart and has struggled over life changes in the past months. Those with tender hearts seem to feel those pains in others, as well, and Casey notices what her fellow bloggers are coping with, always adding her kind words in support.
Traci daily faces her own struggles, but she never misses a chance to look at the lives of others and tries to make their lives a little easier with her support. When someone can't see past the current roadblock, she seems to find comforting words and encourage continuing along the path.
I'm glad I've come to know all these lovely ladies, even though it is from afar. Thanks to each of you for what you add to my life with your gentle ways.
