Spreading Lovies

I've been lucky enough to get bunches of awards, and for this I am grateful and well, kinda humbled *blushing*

Something really special happened to me recently, though, that made receiving some of these bloggy gifts top-notch...they were specifically made with me (and a few other bloggy buddies) in mind. I was downright, flat-out floored. This one was awarded to me by Mary of Work of the Poet. Here are her sweet words:

Chuck of Foster Me Up made a comment today that we need some new awards. That prompted me to come up with this award which I mean to give to a number of wonderful bloggers who indeed "light up my life."

Now I will NOT subject you to the song by Debbie Boone that she sang in 1978. But I will quote from Rabbi Michael Strassfeld in order to describe the people I think deserve this award:

"Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished."

Here are the list of awardees:
Chuck of Foster Me UpSandee of Comedy PlusSandy Carlson of Writing in FaithRoger of Idaho Daily PhotoMo of It's A Blog Eat Blog Worldellen b of The Happy Wondererjams of The Poor Mouthjmb of Nobody ImportantJim of Jim's Little BlogMarilyn of More Random Than AverageIvanhoe of Communique from IvanhoeIan of The Popcorn PrincipleTravis of Trav's ThoughtsJeff B of A Word in EdgewiseJamie of Duward DiscussionLois of Lowdown from LoisPenelope/Mama Bear of Cafe at the End of the UniverseLing/Elaine of It's not a Weekend; It's a Lifestyle

Mary, I'm so honored. Thank you.

Here's' the second one. Jenn who's Enjoying the Ride said, "Since I'm irish, I made this little award for St. Patrick's Day. Feel free to pass it along!"

Here are her awardees:

my sis-in-law, jennifer, lara, frigga, carole, anna, penelope-anne, christine, leigh, crystal, diana, chuck, helena, jocelyn, kelly, carrie, juliana, miss donna, sonya, tammy, misty dawn, skittles, vixen, and jennifer.

This is so thoughtful, Jenn. Thanks so much for thinking of me.

Bluedreamer said my blog is interesting. Well, that's a first *wink* and I so appreciate you thinking of me, Blue *huge hug*

The Vasquez3 says that she totally hearts my blog. Ahhhh. How killer kute is that? Thank you my new sweet, hilarious bloggy buddy. I love you much too *wink*

The Vasquez3 also gave me this one. She said, "This one goes to EVERYONE on my blogroll...yes really, cuz y'all are my daily dose of bloggy goodness...yes, i really read ya everyday my google reader tells me you posted!" hehehe...I'm on her blogroll *jumping up and down and clapping like an idiot* (You're one of my daily doses too, miss thing.)

I got this one from Storyteller who said, "I'd like to pass it along to the following bloggers who do nice things everywhere they go!" The awardees are:

Thank you, Storyteller. You are a treasure.

Storyteller also said that I rock! Well, hey. What other reason is there to keep blogging? I know of none.
Here are the awardees:

In honor of Mary who graciously created a button, here's my feeble attempt at doing the same. Stop laughing. It's not that bad. This goes to my visitors of yesterday, today and everybody who gave me an award above:

Rog, Mama Meji, Hanna, Blue, Storyteller, Greatfullivin, Sandee, Nuttygal, Colin, Claudia, Nap, RennyBA, Jen, Ann, Pam, Melanie, OneLuvGurl, Empress, Mary, Jenn, The Vasquez3

*dancing around the room like a freak* That. Was. A. Load. This post is getting too long. Stay tuned to see who my other recipients are *curtsey* and thank you for stopping by. Beverages and snackies are now being served on the terrace.

Congrats on your well deserved awards! You are one of the kindest people in all the blogosphere! I love what Mary said,"Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished." That's you Chuck! The light! Thanks for passing on the know how I love the bling! HUGS!

Congratulations on all these ‘well-deserved’ awards!!! Wow!

How wonderful to not only share the awards on your blog, but also to provide some ‘link-love’ spreading the love by ‘quoting’ our posts! Methinks that might be better than ‘viral-linking’ because it introduces my blogging friends to yours ‘en masse’ building bridges (something I like to do ya know) … and as I type this I’m reminded me that I don’t know if I can figure out how to do yesterdays so may pass on it because I know you’ll understand.

YOU DEFINITELY ROCK! I love the Easter eggs you created all by yourself and will share them with pride. You’ve inspired me to get off my duff and create some new awards of my own sometime soon … but first I’ll join you on the terrace for snacks and beverages. ;--)

Hugs and blessings,

Melanie said...

WOW - such wonderful awards for a wonderful person. Thanks so much for passing one my way. I'm afraid I have been very slow at posting for a few days - so much snow to deal with around here. I have to keep at it so my dad (he is 82) doesn't get any bright ideas that he is going out to shovel. Again, congrats!
