As quoted by Sherry of Byrum Art:
It has been along Winter and I've had some difficult transitions in my life this Winter. Many of my online friends have continued to inspire me and help me just by being their selves. It's been awhile since I've given this award out but I would like to pass in on to some of the ladies here on blogger land that have encouraged me to continue despite my personal problems and despite the economy. To me the greatest spiritual gift one can give is encouragement and support to others!! So I want to thank
Sarah of Cottage Garden Studios
Becca of Magikal Seasons
Jeanne of The Candy Corn Chronicles
Suzie of Cat In The Moon
Brenda of Wicked Wool Gathering (whooo hooo, that's me!!)
Dede of Brightest Blessings Wiccans
Cindy of Shaggy Hag Decor
and my special friend of Witch Hollow Primitives who is greatly missed!!
So ladies I hope you will pass my humble Award on to those who have inspired you and your offerings this loonnngggg Winter this year!!
(End of quote.)
Thank you Sherry for thinking of me!!
I'm a natural born giver, it's just my nature, I know that and I've known it for a very long time, probably about the time I was dating and my Mother generally didn't approve of anyone I dated including the guy I've been married to for 29 years. But it was back then that she made a statement to me that has not only stuck but made me realize a big part of who I am. Her statement "You know you can't save the world don't you?" It was right there and then that I realized she was right (not that I was intentionally trying to save the world, it's just who I am)but I also made the conscious decision to give and be passionate of everyone I meet. As the old saying goes, you don't know why a person is the way they are until you've walked a mile in their shoes. So remember that it is important to leave a grin, a smile, a laugh, a gentle hug, words of encouragement, or a simple hey I've been thinking of you, with everyone you meet and remember to not be quick to judge as it really does make a difference in each of our lives!! The words you give come back to you!! And although we may not be able save the world, I believe we have the power within ourselves to make the world a better place. I live by this rule, I believe in the Poem at the top of my blog!! Call me childish, maybe I'm living in a Fantasy World but I choose to believe. By the number of WONDERFUL AWARDS that I have received as of late I'd say it not only works but stands very true!!
Thank you Sherry!!
So I would like to pass this wonderful award on to a few special people, people that I feel give of themselves unconditionally:
Of coarse I would include Sherry and all of the wonderful ladies on Sherry's list, I will pass it on to a couple more wonderful ladies:
Cat of In The Light Of The Moon
Kathy of Calkat The Jewelry Junkie
Thank you ladies for making a huge difference in my life!!
