ALL- Around Wonderful Blogger Award.~ Seriously?

All-Around Wonderful Blogger

Once again I have been touched beyond anything that I am able to express in words. I know! Me not having any words to say about something.
Yet this award has taken me from feeling a bit blue (only because I am not feeling 100%) to putting me on top of my mountain again. Just a paragraph or two from this most amazing woman did this. It should be bottled. Kindness is something that for many just comes first nature, Kate from her blog ” Believe Anyway” @ is one these types of women. She speaks to the gentle nature of my own soul in writing style and her expressions of life. I found her blog quite by accident, but then really it is never about accidents is it? There is a “purpose, a rhyme, and reason for every season.”
Whether it is because of a purpose, a rhyme (riddle), or a reason Kate’s & mine’s paths crossed I don’t ask. There is no need to know because just knowing her is enough.. Trusting that she came into my world is enough.

I will accept this award today despite the blush on my face. I am truly quite puzzled by this attention to my voice. I am not someone who thinks of herself as anything special so this kind of attention, recognition feels awkward.

I write because it’s who I am. When what I say reaches and touches someone in any way I am humbled. This journey in life has and will take me down many bumpy roads, fast lanes, and hills with inclines that possible may break me. This is what I believe life is about. At least this is what my journey in my life is about.

Writing helps me navigate those roads, lanes, hills as if writing is my built-in GPS. It takes helps me map out the journey sometimes, and other times it helps me log in the miles for future deductions. As I believe that life is about the journey, not the destination traveling with goals and expectations can cause some discomfort. Yet the pillow comfort of writing helps soften the bumps and lets me put a balm on what hurts.

It delights me to no end that others like Kate find that what I share has some value in her own journey.
I thank her here for the recognition and faith in me that this is something blogging road is one I should continue following.

    • Thank you Dear Terri, my friend. It’s been a long and busy week getting ready for a weeks road trip to the coast. It’s delights me to no end to see your happy name here and your sweet & kind comment.

      I have been remiss on catching up on the few blogs that I like to make part of my day. I miss reading your daily sweet peas and although a vacation I will always have my laptop with me. I see myself sitting in front of the picture windows catching up on my sweet pea fix. lol.. hope you do not mind. ; )

      Have a very nice weekend full of abundant joys and sweet blessings full of sweet peas.

    • OMGOSH Katie girl! You are too much. I love you for this. I hope you can forgive me for being a tad busy but will post this too on my blog next week when things are a bit more relaxed. I have two from you to post and to re0award to other deserving blogs. Passing them forward as only I know you would do.

      You truly make my days. God Bless sweetie!

    • Kate, I know one message after another. You bring absolute light and goodness to me, to our world. I am wishing I could give you a gentle hug in person but will do with a cyber one.
      Thank you dear friend for your support,, encouragement, and friendship. All mean so much, you are a delightful blessing that God has gifted me and I am so grateful for you and and to Him I could Shout.
      PY does not what is going to hit him tonight, when I’ll be shouting to the stage, “Kate & Toni adore your blessings and gifts to ladies like the two of us”
      A bit more refined than from our younger years but definite fans we are, and there will be no denying this despite the fact that today we are lady’s.
      “If you miss the train I’m on you will know that I am gone
      You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.”

      (I’ll have my laptop at the coast and will send you a happy review of his concert.)

      Have a blissful and blessed weekend my friend!
