Some weeks ago, I was delighted and very encouraged when I received the Inner Peace Award from Jane Dougherty. Jane doesn’t usually ‘do’ awards but when she received this award from one of her followers she broke her self-imposed rule and passed it on to those she wanted to thank. Lucky for me then!
As a follower of Jane’s blog, I am drawn to all aspects of her wonderfully creative writing and so I was really honoured to think that she considered me worthy of this award. She must have known that I needed a healthy dose of ‘Inner Peace’ when she gave it to me as I was going through a difficult time. That, and she also paid me a really nice compliment by saying that I had a blog worth reading. Thank you so much Jane!
The other lovely thing about this award is that there aren’t any rules (yay!!) and it doesn’t need any work (other than displaying it proudly on your blog of course, after all, you earned it, you deserve it, so go on!) and you don’t have to worry if you haven’t the time to pass it on – we are all short of that commodity!
However, I have really wanted to share this award with you for some time and that time is now! After all, who couldn’t use some ‘inner peace’ sometimes (all the time?)!
Take it as my way of saying a very special ‘Thank You’ – for sticking with me when I was in a dark place, for taking the time to visit and read my blog and for your great comments and insight. For supporting and encouraging me, for making me smile. For being kind and thoughtful.
I just wish I could make this list longer than it already is, but then I would never stop as I do appreciate each and every one of you…
So then, here is my list of nominees, a mixture of ‘old’ and ‘new’, regardless, I consider you all as friends.
