Thanks for the nod!



Just when you think maybe nobody is paying any attention to you...Bam! A nice blog award comes your way! Guess it is better than somebody paying attention when you pick your nose!

I am not sure if I would consider my blogs "mind blowing" per se--although I do indeed appreciate the gesture. I like my blogs to wrap you in your blankie, and help you find the comfy spot on the couch to where you can settle in for a good movie...hopefully leaving you with a new idea, or lesson to chew on. If you arrive at mind blowing - kudos!

The awards are not only an extended gesture to where we say our thanks and move on, but we are also to give thanks to those who bestowed them upon us: The thanks going to Pranayama before breakfast!

Please pop in to see her blog! Yoga is her love, and she discusses how it mixes into her live as a mum.

Onward...
I also have to share the blog love with a few of my faves, my followers, my friends. I have old favorites, new favorites, but this time I extend the nod to the following, and they are in no particular order: (Mind blowing, you decide---worthy of exploration, definitely!)

1. Writers Rising - a collaboration of writers both established and aspiring - their goal? To make the world a better place through the expressive written word... (This award is extended to the whole bowl of granola there!)

2. duane scott - Why? Because he is honest, entertaining, and real. His stories are warm, reflective and spiritual.

3. Journey to Joy - Bill just wants the world to be a better place, and the things he sees that are not - he chooses to see them brighter anyhow. Bill is a hug in print.

4.Belly Up - Although perpetually uplifting and smile worthy - you never know how Marcime will package her message! Like a box of chocolates - nope...better!

An I know she probably has this award - but she deserves the nod from me anyway...

5. Lessons from the Monk I Married - whether or not she needs the award, Katherine deserves to be read and experienced. I hope my readers read her work as well. Her stories are compassionate distillations of her observations with the sole purpose of sharing love.

Thanks for the award, but more so, thanks for allowing me the ability and platform to direct a momentary spotlight on other talented writers. Namaste' my friends, God bless, and God speed!

Until next time...

Okay. Okay. Love the award. Thanks!

But WHAT?!!?!?!? Wait, why didn't I know you had a book? When I click on it, it doesn't bring anything up. I knew you were a writer, but I had no clue. When can I read it? Where can I get it?

Congratulations on your success!

Thanks my friend I love hugs & I love looking at life from a more positive point of view. I only hope that a little of what I have to say wears off on a few others & makes the world a better place. I truly appreciate your support & love.

Hugs,

Bill

LOL- Thanks Duane - guess I have too much time on my hands! I am waiting on my final proof. (Got one last week and found a couple typos, so I requested a quick reprint), but I will aprove it for distribution this week, and it will be available by the weekend! Details soon to follow! ;) Thanks for asking!

Tony dear, you blog is mind blowing to me as a NON mother-tongue english. I do however love what you write. Your posts amuses me so much...I mean the things I DO understand. I do believe my acquaintance with you could actually function as english lessons at high level...at least I hope...

Shanti

Tony - I am late to arrive at the podium - got my dress snagged on a chair down the aisle...typical :) But I am here now, all better...

Tony, I Thank you! - what a fun award!
And such kind words - like a box of chocolates? well, If I wasn't blushing on the way up to the podium, I am now...

(and by the by, your recent comment about missing the God of your youth - and not wanting to be told how to praise or love...akin to being told how to hold your daughter's hand - so apt Tony! so so true and well said)
