Summertime is for awards!
Winning awards for Lady Barefoot Baroness & FullCircledMe is always such a surprise to me. I write what I write for me really. I write what is in my heart usually 98% of the time. That anyone would find something meaningful is such a bonus for me from this community. I am always humbled by the words shared here with me.
This award post is special in that I have been AGAIN recognized by two of my personal heroes in Life.
Ironically no.strike that... maybe it it is not an irony at all that they are both caretakers. I am strongly moved by those who make sacrifices in their own lives to be the comfort to another.
These awards come from two women who live their life’s as quiet angels. They don’t even see themselves as such. But we do. I’ll not make you privy to their stories as I think you would agree they are theirs alone to tell. I will link you to their blogs and encourage you to visit. If you need a dose of real love, real unconditional love, than I know where you can find it.
Some of you long time followers may already follow Tersia. This dear friend I have written about a couple times prior because I so admire, respect, and love everything about her. Including her blog, her raw openness to shared emotions is exquisite. There are no veiled attempts to mask something for anything else than what it is. I honor that and am humbled by Tersia.
Tersia’s I thank you my treasured friend for both awards. You make me so happy that you call me friend.

Wonderful Team Member Award
1. Display/represent the award on your blog,
2. * Finish the sentence: A great reader is…..
….in my world is a person who comes to read my blog because what I say speaks to them, not because they feel any sense of obligation. My great readers are loyal & devoted readers.
3. Nominate 14 readers I appreciate.
4. Thank and link back to the person who gave the award,
The Loyal Reader Award
I was also awarded the Loyal Readership Award also by Tersia and a new follower & fast friend Terry. Though Terry & I have seen one another in passing through the community it has only been very recent that we have seen the kindred spirit in one another.
Terry also has an amazing story to share. Please visit her and say hello at: http://terry1954.wordpress.com/
Thank you Terry. I so look forward to a long & nurturing friendship. You so honored me with this award ~
1.Display the award on your blog.
2. Thank the person who sent it to you.
3. Answer a rhetorical question of the authors choosing.
If you were on a deserted island, how would you survive? Hoping it is tropical I would be content with two books, one for journaling & one of spiritual stimulation. I would also want an extra-large muslin shawl for comfort. And though I could not say I actually play anything well yet, my guitar. For music to sooth my heart & soul.
4. Send on the award to everyone you consider a loyal reader
As I pay forward with both awards I want to thank all my readers, all my blogging family, and all new friends yet to be. It is because of you that in the end I find my blogs so rewarding.
I want to also give a shout out to 3 dear friends that are not bloggers, but as personal friends & significant readers of LBB. That they do so is extremely meaningful to me and I want them to know how grateful I am. To you Dori, Sheila & Pablo thank you so very much for your friendships, love & support.
I cheat. Yes it is true when it comes to complying with award protocol I am a rebel . I cannot possibly name all the people who come and visit my blogs that deserve this award more than I ever did. I love you all for what you bring to my life & if you are reading this post you will go directly to the award badge and save it to your own blog. You deserve and I am awarding both to each of you. There is also no pressure to accept 😉
Below are bloggers who have had something special to say to me recently – As I award the two above awards to each below I want to use this as a segue to introduce you;
Go have a read and stop to say hello and say that Barefoot Baroness sent you.
