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.

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.










Now the rules for the award are very simple…acknowledge whoever sent you the award…then nominate the blogs that touched you (I know it is hard to choose)…then from A-Z share a word that describes you…HAVE FUN!!!

Time To Shine Some Light

Imagine my surprise when yet again, Auroramorealist.wordpress.com nominated me for blogging awards!!! This is always a great honor…to be acknowledged by your peers and fellow bloggers. This is probably the only place where you will hear people say that the honor is in the nomination; although it is so true. But I have found so many beautiful words on so many pages of such a wide genre…its like a universal rainbow of stories, about our lives, our sadnesses, our laughter, and our tears…and the love that defines us all.



I guess I will start with the rules…which are easy since there really are none…lol. The purpose of this, the way I undersrtand it is to shine light on our fellow writers and hopefully bring them into someone elses sights as well.

But sticking to tradition…

1. we should first thank whoever nominated us…it’s our way of giving back. Sort of creating the circle that holds us all together.

2. we are to nominate 10-15 writers whose blogs have touched us, made us laugh, given us joy, brought us to tears…basically anyone who has touched our hearts

3. share 7 things about your self…it could be anything…nothing is too large or small.



So allow me to start….

1. My deepest heartfelt thank you to Janice Auroramorealist.wordpress.com …you have been such a beautiful spirit and person to me. Your warmth has a beautiful glow and it is ever represented in your writing style and content. I wish you the very best in the upcoming year and pray you have much peace and abundant joy.


2. MY NOMINEES…I really hope that everyone gets the opportunity to read the posts attached to these blogs…they have all touched me in one way or another



















3. And last but not least…..7 things about…ME

1. Every Tuesday after 3 pm EST you can catch me on the http://dversepoets.com page. I am trying to refine my poetic skills and they are so gracious…lol. But seriously there is so much talent there it is a beautiful sight.

2. I am a big animal person…no I don’t live with 20 cats…lol. But I see a majestic beauty in all of our Creators work. Animals never second guess themselves. They do not look for approval, they function on their gut instincts. But most importantly they do not kill for the sake of the kill. They have respect and kinship with one another…something that I think we could all establish.

3. I love the outdooors. I love hiking and walking…it brings me a sense of peace.

4. I always try to find the lesson in all things. Sometimes when we are hurt by situations or events…we succumb to sadness or anger…and while this is understandable…it can stunt growth. So, for myself, I try to see what lesson was being taught to me on that day…and hopefully I won’t miss it.

5. I am a part of a very non-traditional family. And while some may not understand it…I am loved and respected every day of my life. My grandmother told me once…often love is not where you thought it was going to be and sometimes it does not come in the package that you had in mind. But all love comes from our Creator…so it is a gift nonetheless.

6. My daughter will be in college soon…and while I am so proud of her accomplishments…I know I will miss her with all of my heart

7. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason…and while we may not understand it at the time…sooner or later it will become clear. And just as our time together seemed random…it is as it was supposed to be.


I hope you all have fun and enjoy the nominations!!

And may our Creator fill your lives with love and peace
