I am so honored ... I was rendered speechless. I had to run to get ready for Church but I was sailing on high spirits.
My next blessing was at Church. During announcements our priest asked me stand up and he told the congregation about my Guidepost article. I blushed to my roots and my spirit soared. The double-whammy of recognition. The irony is that I'm blessed all over and I know it. Top to bottom, side to side.
Now...back to the award. This is the important part, so pay attention. The principle is "pay it forward." I'm now responsible for recognizing the bloggers I read regularly and admire for their superior scribbling. I can't give it back to Cha Cha, as much as she deserves it (such as her last post which reminds me that I too share a love of stationary and am obliged to write thank you notes).
So without further ado, or rambling or random comment (too late!) I'd like to acknowledge and reward these bloggers who (whom?) I love:
My lovely sister ADallasDiva, who prompted my initial blogging forays several years ago, then prompted me again back in September when I was
whining mentioning my desire to get into the writing habit. As my younger sister she has always been mini-me so it's great to role-reverse. I read her blog regularly, even if she posts irregularly. And, she was published before I was.
Barbara has been educating us on Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and I'd venture to say that bestowing this award is akin to delivering each of the winners a gold star. Kudos to you, my friends. Pass this forward to those scribblers you love and let them know you care.
