Thank you to Jumping in Puddles at Life Spacings who has given me The LOVE YA award:“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
Jumping in Puddles was kind enough to say:
April from http://thriverstoolbox.blogspot.com/ often we visit april because she is so clever at enveloping stories of herself into lessons she has learnt and then goes from there to questions for the readers. The journey she takes us on by doing this is a journey of self discovery and growth. Sometimes we have spent days pondering one of Aprils blogs thus reminding ourselves on how much we can still learn.
So now it's my turn. There are people I might have chosen if I didn't know they'd already been tagged. Since the idea is to spread the sense of community and introduce each other to perhaps bloggers our regular readers don't know this is actually probably a good thing. So I'm choosing:
Gypsy-Heart for her joyful approach to life and beautiful artwork.
Grace for her profound sense of faith and her gratitude posts.
Karma for her honesty about the challenges she faces.
Mile 191 for her faith and her thoughtful posts.
Leah for her awareness and sharing about abuse and how other survivors have coped.
Just Be Real for her determination to be true to herself and for her deep faith.
Metamorphosis/Peppermint Patty for the tools she offers bloggers on her website.
State of Grace for her reminder that we can be survivors and blog about lots of things not even remotely related to healing, having been abused, etc.
I love that the internet lets us all connect with each other and discover so many different ways that one can cope with, survive and triumph over abuse.
Sending blessings and safe and gentle (((((((hugs)))))))),
PS If you haven't seen this already, I hope you'll go take a look. It's a reminder that dreams can come true. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8QZY
