Blogger Reflection Award
I had this comment from Kim (see side bar)
”I've given you an award over at my site. If you like it you can pass it on to 5 others you think deserve it.”
The other meme was the Blogger Reflection Award from Jeff over at Big Dawg Tales. According to the blurb, “This award should make an individual reflect upon five bloggers who have been an encouragement, a source of love, impacted you in some way, and who have provided a Godly example. In other words, five dear bloggers whom, when you reflect upon them, you are filled with a sense of pride and joy...of knowing them and being blessed by them.”
As most of you know I don’t do me mes but this isn’t about me and I certainly would like to honour some of the great friends on my side bar ( and there are some needing to go on as soon as I can manage it.)
My five are as follows. I could easily name five more but must stick to the rules. If you don’t already know them, they are already on my side bar.
Gene Maudlin (Hoss). I have always felt a bond – we were born in the same year and he is a remarkable man who lives life to the full. He left his retirement home, and enjoys life with his beautiful wife, ignoring his frail health and keeps his many followers in stitches. He’s the brother I lost.
Kenju (Judy) a blogging kindred spirit with a busy family and business life but makes time to keep her many readers interested and amused and will always take time to explain some of the American nuances I’m not familiar with.
. The Apprentice (Anna) I was much moved when I read her book ‘Peeling Onions’. She is a gifted writer and photographer and has the ability to make me cry. She sent me a CD which included a song ‘Jamie’- the name of MTL in my story and it never fails to make me boo. hoo!
Sam Problem Child Bride. This is like trying to catch a piece of quicksilver. She is like a brilliant daughter with an incredible imagination and the ability to take you with her on her crazy funny flights. You have to read her and as well as this she is a staunch friend.
Gyana Gyal (GG) Again a rare and beautiful writer. It’s impossible to read her without hearing those rhythmic phrases which reverberate in your head and which transport you to a distant land with rum and coconuts and high spirits and tragedies. All of life she’ll tell you.
My husband knows all of them from my talking about them – they are part of my cyber family.
And the ones I have missed – you know who you are and I love you also.
For the 5 awarded:
1. Copy this bit of the post.
2. Reflect on five bloggers and write a least a paragraph about each one.
3. Make sure you link this post so others can read it and the rules.
4. Leave your chosen bloggers a comment and let them know they’ve been given the award.
5. Place the award icon on your site
I can't seem to get the icon on my post. Please see it over at Kim's
