Recently I was notified that I have been honored for an award! Receiving an award of any kind for my little daily blog is truly an honor! When I began this blog, I had no idea that anyone got an awards for doing this. I have been honored a number of times, and I would not be so honored if it were not for you my readers and my followers! It makes me happy that you think enough of my blog that you would want to pass on to me an award! To use Mike Myers words from that goofy movie that he was in, the name escapes me, it always makes me verklempt! And I would like to personally thank Sharla Shults at Cat Nip of Life!
Here is the award recently bestowed upon me…
Best Moment Award
Sharla Shults is one amazing woman, and has been in my life for a short while, considering my years, yet she is one that I feel as if I have known forever! Old souls always find one another don’t they? Sharla has not only shared her life with me but also recently asked me to collaborate with her, providing photos to go along with her amazing, heartfelt, image provoking poetry! This too was an honor that brought tears to my eyes. And as I read her words from the poem she sent me, the photos in my portfolio immediately came to mind, matching her words perfectly! This, and this award with which she is honoring me with, is truly an honor! May I have a Kleenex please?
So let’s look at the rules for this award, again which is the “Best Moment Award.”
Winners re-post this completely (the rules, I am assuming) with their acceptance speech. This could be written or video recorded. Please click here to read the post where Sharla passes on the award, including her thanks to those bestowing it upon her.
My acceptance speech: With all my heart, Sharla, I humbly accept this award that you have bestowed upon me! I am truly honored that you thought so much of my blog that you would include me as one of those that are about the moment! In every post that I write, I try to capture that best moment! I look at the world around me, fall in love with it, and just want to share it with you, my readers! I always try to stop and smell the roses and it has always been my hope, in my ever evolving blog, to pass on to you those things in the world that you might not take the time to stop and notice. Of course, food has to be involved too, because I love that too! So, my thanks go out to all that take the time to stop by to read, to look at my photography, and to those who love my recipes, thank you for trying them and for your feed back!
Part of the rules of this award: “Winners have the privilege of awarding the next awardees! The re-post should include a NEW set of people/blogs worthy of the award; and winners notify them of the great news.”
When I think of the “Best Moment” I think of those who live in the moment and those whose blogs reflect this. I am not to repeat anyone who has already gotten this award, however, I just have to! In no particular order, the following blog writers are always in the moment.
To Lisa at Zeebra Designs and Destinations: I pass this on to you Z for sharing all the best moments in your neck of the woods. Lisa lives in a small town in Ecuador and is one who has taken her passion for art and spread it around to the world around her, capturing the imaginations of everyone that she touches! I applaud you Lisa, or “Z” as I affectionately refer to you!
To Penny at The Why About This: I pass this on to you Penny for not only sharing the good moments of life, but for sharing with all of us who follow you, the trials and tribulations of life. You live in each moment as it comes, and I have had the privilege of you including me in those best moments that have occurred in your life simply by following your blog!
I know that this might be a bit unusual, but I just have to pass this back to Sharla at CatNipofLife for sharing those best moments in life that mean so much to all of us! I truly enjoyed the cuddles I got from the post I linked to, and hopefully you did too! Sharla, you have shared with me so many best moments recently! Hugs to Jim on his recovery, and hugs to you too for being my friend! I hope that we meet some day in person! Just as I hope to meet Lisa and Penny in person too!
I cheated a bit on the awardees! But, I am in the moment right now, so please forgive me!
Please take a moment to wander around the amazing blogs of these three incredible women that I have been given the privilege to meet and get to know!
Hugs to all, and love to all! Yes, that means you too my readers and followers! Now go out and have a wonder Wednesday, and thank you for visiting today!
