WordPress Family Award To Hiatus –

A  new award for this blog., Lady Barefoot Baroness. And just as I was on my way out the proverbial door for a hiatus from all things blogging, I started to include writing  in this hiatus,  but I know the journal writing will be still  an everyday part of processing so this would not be so.

Just briefly before I get on with the business of accepting this award I need to share that I am taking a short vacation from writing here at WordPress. In a note from an insightful friend & mentor who responded to my sharing that I was taking some time off said this;
” I am hopeful you gain the introspective your soul is seeking,”  I repeat these words only because in a nutshell it says clearer than I can why I am taking this time off.  This is a journey that needs my full attention for a period of time.

On to the award….

The WordPress Family Award

wordpress-family-award

How cool is that?

This award is from my dear & courageous friend; Tersia whose blog ;is @  http://tersiaburger.com/  

The timing of Tersia’s award is as typical of my connection I have with her,  it is spot on. I have this happen with many of those who are part of my blogging family. Seems when I most need some insights they appear with alarming accuracy & timing.

As it has with Tersia’s award.

For this woman who gifts this award is a hero of mine. She is someone who epitomizes the words brave & courageous in my mind. She has more strength than she knows she has. Often when I am reading her blog I am reminded of  F A.A. Milne‘s epic verse from Winnie The Pooh. { Tersia if I have sent this to you before I apologize for being repetitive. This quote is so indicative of how I see you. Thank you so much for thinking of me. }

This beautiful woman Tersia has been through more than any person should in a life time. The timing of her award arriving on my doorstep this week was just the perspective I needed to help gain balance again;  for I have been falling out of my saddle of late. If I could emulate the grace of living through troubled waters like Tersia I would be ever grateful for this. I look to her and see this woman whose daughter was robbed of a long life and find a woman who finds the will to go forward. To move on is one of the most courageous commitments to living life fully I have ever been privy to.

Thank you Tersia. You touched a place in my heart long ago, now you have scribed your name their.

As for passing the award on I will again default on this: You who follow my blog  and have stuck by LBB & me through some transformations recently are my WordPress Family; and you ALL deserve this award. May I ask you to do me a favor? Please  grace your own blog with this award.

Blog-Keeping; Not To Be Confused With….

…..housekeeping.

Not to be confused with the domestic kind, so don’t go away. It is not what you think.

There will be no need for any outside help for this Blog Keeping project  I am not talking about housekeeping on this blog. And though there will be some re-arranging to do I will not require you to move that heavy over-stuffed sofa a dozen times while I decide where it looks best. Not this time. 

It has long been my intention to use my maiden name for a book I am writing, and anything else that will follow. I have become of the mindset just recently of another project. so the timing of this bit of Blog-Keeping is more than appropriate.
  Blog-Keeping 101… well that would be for this blog, my Barefoot Baroness Blog.
 2013 started out for me as a new year with new beginnings in many ways. Realizing how quickly time can pass, and yet again how it slows unmercifully down at times. I know now is the time to make some much-needed changes. Before I know it a year will have come and gone. It happens s fast.
One the new beginnings for me is changing my pen name that I write under here at WordPress. This will be true for any where my name will appear. I have been given as a gift this beautiful copy write signature widget below. I love the look of it and it feels professional. The fonts are almost like my own hand writing which was purely accidental, and makes me all that more smitten with it,

So….Let me introduce to you my new name “old” name. This would be me, the original.
I would like strike that. I would love to thank my dearest & “Bestest” friend from the UK;  Gerry who has his own blogs “restawyle”  & “Writing Hell” (see links below) along with two other blogs he & I are partner shipped in. (Bring Them Home & Cyklopps Rides Again.)
Signature 2013
  Those who know Gerry know him to be a kind and generous man. This gift of my new copy write widget is evidence if his generosity and kindness. This little beauty did not design itself and though its above my know how I do know at least the work that went into creating this, and it’s not slight.
If you have not met Gerry please look into his blogs and the wonderful blogger you are missing.
Because Gerry has written two novels each  in a 30 days time frame during  the last two Nano seasons (2011 &2012( while also winning Nano two years in a row I look to him for support and inspiration in all that I write. It does not hurt that he is also my best friend I have had the blessing to meet here at WP.
Thank you so very much My Kind Gerry for your absolute generous and thoughtful gift.
You certainly know how to make a lady smile.
I thank you my friend for your unconditional loyal support, and your patience.
(Gerry’s links to his fabulous blogs)
If you are looking for something different you need to look no further than Gerry’s blogs I promise you will be delightfully entertained & possibly held captive by his stories.
I am.

So Humbled By You & Your Awards ~

Humility Times Three!

~ AWARDS ~

Awards Hold Supporting Roles

Approximately 2 weeks  ago while I was moving on I received 3 different awards. This  is something to celebrate, something to shout out loud to my community about. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE FOR ME AND LETTING ME KNOW I MAKE A DIFFERENCE! The awards are so meaningful, the represent to me the love and support that I find each and every day here at WordPress, whether it be my blog, or ones I visit.

]That three separate blog bliblings ( blog siblings )  saw that awards are not only deserving in their eyes but the timing of  it all was so serendipitous to a much-needed self awareness on my part.  I am in awe of the awards, but more so in awe of my blogging brother & sister’s who bestowed them on me. For it is through their awards that for me hold more support by their lovely intentions than I have honestly felt from any other community in my small world during the course of the last year.

I am however pleading for patience and tolerance from my three bliblings who awarded me so generously. I am cheating something shameful and  posting the three awards together. I will be honest with you all – I have not found time to stitch two words together intellectually on my blog since moving into my new apartment. Not only do these awards NOT lose any meaning by me accepting this way, these awards are unique and special  to me  because of their timing and who they are from  Just when I needed an uplifted feeling I was sent not just one, not two, but three.  Thank you!

#1 Award

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg

http://onwindydays.wordpress.com/2013/01/02/blog-of-the-year-award/#comment-88 onwindydays

I love the name of this blog!!  This  delightful author has become a  good blogging friend and she has awarded me another Blog of The Year Award  I find she has the wisdom of an old soul yet she is not, old that is. She far surpasses her peers in knowledge of our Universe, people and all within its parameters  Her out look on life is one that sends a smile to my heart, and a connected feeling when we touch each others souls through our respective blogs. You will find a brilliant read on her blog and something of interest to take away  each time you visit. I encourage you to visit her and take sway some of her sweet kindness when you leave.

 

.#2 Award.

The Shine On Award

http://groovydocs.wordpress.com/2013/01/07/giving-one-anothe/

This second award The Shine on Award  comes from my dear friend and much-loved  brother Dave from his-vastly loved  blog  Groovy Docs. Dave may be one the most peaceful loving men  I know. He lives his life with the scruples of one who without question to know all things are possible with enough trust, positive thought, and peace bearing energy.  He has garnered knowledge that he knows only he alone can bring a force of good will into his own life by being the kind of energy in himself to see it come to be. It is infectious. it is the principle after all.  He hopes to find this in others. as he searches the universe striving to bring pace to others. Dave thrives on living a life filled with positive energy that he uses to navigate through the journey of his life, always facing it with the  most admirable quality of refusing to ever give in to the negative flow of energy about him,  Dave is a fantastic conversationalist and one of the joys I have in knowing him and his blog like I do is the great discussions we have regarding these very topics. He teaches me.  If you are wanting to engage in intelligent thoughts and discussions with someone who can mentor your own thoughts towards living those peaceful easy feelings  I happen  to be privy to the fact hat Dave welcomes discussions on his blog. I highly recommend that when you visit Dave (cause I know you will be inspired to do so) – you just  keep going back!

The Leibster Award 2013

# 3  Award

http://sterlingsop.wordpress.com/2013/01/14/liebster-blog-awar

This third award the Liebster Award given to me  by a lovely & Dear woman from her blog Mushy Cloud which is another blibling  whose blog name I adore. There are many things going over at Mushy Cloud’s busy blog to look into when you visit. Trust me if you have not been you need to. Pam lives an extremely interesting life as a woman whose roles include  wife, mom, musician and writer, camper, crochet artists creating her own patterns,just to name  A few things about Pam I find interesting. Though certainly not in that order.  few things I find fascinating about her and her blog. Her attitude and belief towards life much echoes my own, we are kindred spirits in so many ways. My blibling Pam & I have shared blogging history for over 18 month  now and one that I “Dearly” love.. I am playing in the word Dear, a word which is the English translaton from the German word Leibster. IE: a term of endearment.

Remaining humble in light of  all that I have received , these 3 award in just the space of one week is not easy. I am not bragging that I have the best blogging family in WordPress.  I can make you all a firm promise instead that my Blogging family is the best in any blog family, in any blog community. In any world. I am blessed by each of you.

Thank you so much from my heart to my three special bloggers who took the time an with the intent to  inspire a smile on my face,  and to let me feel acknowledged by ty you all. I feel both those things and much more.    YOU ARE THE BEST!
