Today, the lovely Vikki over at The View Outside, nominated my blog for the 2012 Blog of the Year Award.
Check out The Blog Of The Year Award Page for rules and info on how it all works.
I sort of swore off blog ‘awards’ a while back because I always struggled with two issues: (1) who to nominate and (2) I didn’t want to come off sounding like a big stuck-up know-it-all. “Oh look at me. I got an award and you didn’t.” See, when I was growing up, my mom taught me to never toot my own horn because no one likes a braggart. Her deal was, if people think you’re great they’ll tell the world, not you. For the longest time I cowered behind my accomplishments because it was “wrong” to ‘gloat’.
Over the past couple of years, life’s thrown some hard knocks my way. Up until a few weeks ago, I teetered every day on the precipice of a deep, dark depression. Then God worked a miracle. He sent a couple of angels to me who were able to lift a dark veil from my eyes enough for me to see the angels already hard at work around me. My life changed in an instant. I can’t explain it. I am truly blessed to have so many people around me who believe in my endeavors, my dreams, and shout about my accomplishments. I may not have many blog followers, but the ones I have are loyal and true, and I don’t hesitate to shout their names from the mountaintops of their accomplishments and what they mean to me and my life.
Today, Vikki honored me with the nomination for the 2012 Blog of the Year award, and I gladly accept. Over the next three Sundays, I will nominate bloggers who have been angels to so many people, not just me. They touch the blogging community with their wit, their honesty, their perseverance, craftiness and genuineness. It’s time to honor those who have given so much to others. This weeks nominees for the 2012 Blog of the Year award are:
I am so blessed to have these angels in my life and I consider it an honor to pass this award on to them.
In closing, I’m hitching a ride over on Rebecca Hart’s blog. She is such a love and agreed to interview me as part of the Make Believe blog tour. Rebecca’s also written a really great novel, Call of the Sea. You’ve got to read it. (It makes a great gift, too!)
Okay, folks, that’s a wrap for today. Hugs to all of you and thanks for visiting me today at the Dreamweaver’s Cottage. Until next time.
