Award Time


AWARD TIME!!

the-lighthouse-award

very-inspiring-blogger-award

awsome-blossom-award

 

There is no greater honor, in my opinion, to be considered award worthy…by my fellow authors and bloggers. Today I wanted to thank http://oawritingspoemspaintings.wordpress.com/2014/03/23/nominated-for-three-awards-at-once-thank-you/

for thinking of me. I was nominated a few months ago, but health issues have kept me from accepting these 3 awards until now.

For the Lighthouse award, name 3 ways you like to help people:

  1. On our radio show, www.blogtalkradio.com/mrol , we are often trying to help our listeners. We continually attempt to shine light on large issues. It is an extreme pleasure to be a part of such a beautiful piece of humanities puzzle.
  2. I like to help people, when I can, through the writing. Both blogs and poetry give me great pleasure and joy to write. It is always a blessing if it helps anyone….even of only for one moment.
  3. We have our own charity that we are in the process of creating. We would also urge other people to get involved with their communities. The only way to stop the needless cycle of violence is o step up and scream, “No More”.

For the Inspiring Blogger Award, I have to name 7 trivial things about me:

  1. I LOVE the color purple!! (the actual color, not just the movie…lol)
  2. I have a few tattoos…lol.
  3. My proudest moment was when I became a mom.
  4. Sometimes when I watch the news…it makes me cry.
  5. I have written a poem in 5 minutes.
  6. I am happily married.
  7. I used to play concert violin.

Light and Love to you all

7×7 Award


7×7 Award
I first would like to thank Colline at Collinesblog for nominating me for this award. I have taken a while to post it on my own blog, because there are just so many beautiful blogs out there and I just wanted to try and recognize those that I hadn’t before. You guys know if I had my way I would nominate everyone I have met and befriended here. I like the 7×7 award because it also helps me reflect back on some of my other writing and makes me look deeper into it. I hope you all get a chance to view the bloggers that I am nominating…they are moving and I truly believe they are noteworthy.
So this blog award asks that we note 7 of our own blogs to link back to and that we nominate 7 bloggers of our choice. As always I wish you all peace and blessings…today and always.

Most helpful pieceThe Day My World Shook…This is a very personal piece to me it was my hope that it may have helped someone else.
Most popular piece- The Face of God…For this I went straight to my Stats
Most beautiful piece- Happy Birthday…anything about my sister is the most beautiful thing in the world to me
Most controversial pieceAnd Time Moved On…Honestly I don’t usually do controversy…but the execution of Troy Davis…struck a chord in me
Most surprisingly successfulNational Day of Hope
Most Underrated piece- Life Lessons…Again from stats
Most Pride worthy- Our Battle

Easy As ABC…or is it?


I would like to thank Michael of Http://jamesdez.wordpress.com  for the ABC Award. It is always wonderful to be recognized by a fellow blogger and Michael has beautiful blog himself and I do hope that each of you get the chance to read it. Michael, thank you for following my blog and taking the time to not only read but to comment, as well.

 

Much to my surprise, I have found the most supportive and loving people here at WordPress. I have been entertained and inspired by some of the most thought provoking and soul stirring blogs imaginable. You all have aided me, through my writing, in overcoming some very serious issues in my life…not limited to the death of my sister. You are all a true blessing to me…thank you so much.

 

I, now, get the honor of passing the baton…as it were…to some wonderful bloggers…in no particular order. I hope that you get a chance to read their blogs…sometimes the best gifts are those yet to be seen.

In a World of Darkness…Light A Candle


In a World of Darkness…Light A Candle

 

 [Creation of New Blog Award: The Candle Lighter Award Posted on December 18, 2011 by Kate Kresse http://believeanyway.wordpress.com/2011/12/18/creation-of-new-blog-award-the-candle-lighter-award/i There are a number of blog/blogger awards. I began to think about my purpose for blogging. I mean the title of my blog reveals a lot about my mission: Believe Anyway. I have blogged before that I chose the title to remind myself to stay optimistic. My purpose is to light a candle in the darkness that envelopes us all at times. I want to lighten loads and light the way. I gravitate towards positive people and positive blogs. I want to start a blog award that reflects my love for the positive in the blogosphere. To see a list of blogs that has been given The Candle Lighter Award Click on The Candle Lighter Award button on my header. I call my award The Candle Lighter Award. It is for blogs and bloggers that light a candle in the darkness with their blog. What does it mean? Whenever I see a post or blog that I think brings light to the world, I will put a copy of this post and give them The Candle Lighter Award. What does the recipient have to do to accept it? Just accept it and put the Candle Lighter Award badge from my blog onto their blog. Please put the link from this post about my creation of the award in a post on your blog so people can read about it. What else do recipients have to do? Nothing. If they do think someone else is a Candle Lighter, they can surely give them the award anytime they want and as often as they want. [I’d love it if you could send me the links for the blogs you do find worthy of the award, because I’d love to see their blogs, too! But it isn’t required]. There is no limit to how many blogs you award The Candle Lighter Award to and no limit to how many times someone can receive it. But when you do, I ask that you use the link for this post.]
