My Spirits Rise with Receiving Awards!

Standard

I am always remiss in addressing and procrastinating my receiving

multiple awards. I am overwhelmed with the love, inspiration and

daily “pats on the back” I receive by blogging. I have such lovely

and warm human beings stretching their hands across continents

and oceans, giving me much more than I give. I would be grateful

for these gifts, alone.

I have received several sets of awards and this will annoy, possibly,

the nominators and the posts that deserve to see the logos and

their “rules” followed closely. But, being the best I can be, means

that you may see the names who nominated me, along with my

latest suggestions of newer and more recent posts I follow.

Hopefully, this will make you smile and enjoy the lists and my post

today.

First, a wonderful post called “Thankfulness” by glorialana, sent me a

Trio of Award nominations:

Inner Peace Award

Sunshine Award

and Loyal Reader awards. All such precious gifts. I am glad to be

passing some peacefulness, sunshine and have the best, most loyal

readers ever!

Here is glorialana’s (Stephanie from Australia) blog information,

please check her blog out very soon!

The woman, otherwise known as the “Hot Rod Cowgirl” gave me

a special 2nd nomination for the Wonderful Team Member

Readership Award.  I feel this award means a lot to me, because

we are all members of a community of writers. We spend time on

each other’s posts, reading and conversing. We support each other,

make each other laugh, bring tears to our eyes and inspire others

to keep on going. This award means a lot to me!

Thanks to:

Another nomination was given by belsbror, a huge Quintet of

Radiance:

Five Enobling Awards!

Wow, this was even better than a gift of a dozen roses! Thank you so

much.

The following award nominations were for:

The Versatile Blogger Award, The Sunshine Award, The Inner Peace

Award, The Most Influential Blogger Award and the ABC Award, also

known as the Awesome Blogger Content Award.

He states, “The idea behind the award nominations is to serve as a

reminder for our thoughts to remain VERSATILE, to brighten up dark

pathways of the mind with SUNSHINE, respect our INNER PEACE,

bring about changes by being positively INFLUENTIAL, and make this

pale blue planet an AWESOME place to abide in.”

Please check out this unique blog which has international flair from a

resident in Mimaropa, of the Philippines. He writes many unusual

posts including about dowries and unusual animals such as parrots.

All of the above may receive any of the gifts of awards that

you have just today been nominated for. I have chosen not to

separate nor individualize who should receive which award. I do

remember being “new’ and “young” in the blogging award world

and loving receiving ANY nominations. Then, I would really try to

“follow the rules” to each award!

Take care and enjoy,

Robin

Another honor: The Most Inspiring Blogger Award

Standard

                     Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I am sure that people may not be surprised that I am adept at hearing someone’s

story and remembering it to tell others. I also make sure that it doesn’t say last

names nor too many details about themselves so that it remains fairly safe from

harm. I started this blog to write about my adventures but along the way, started

realizing that may get tiresome. So, I have enjoyed telling my own stories, my

parents’ stories, my grandparents’ stories, and then, many other special peoples’

stories. Not all are squeaky clean nor do all have happy endings.

I am very honored and pleased that someone along the way “likes” my stories,

and even better, recognize me with an award! I have been given the honor of

receiving the nomination for the Most Inspiring Blogger Award by:

http://binderfullofmen.wordpress.com

This is a beautifully photographed blog with travels, adventures and fun along

the way. The woman who writes it seems so young to have accomplished so much!

I am proud to have her read me, let alone her giving me such a nice award!

I am supposed to name 7 things that you may not know about me. That is so hard

and challenging, since I literally “spill my guts” on this blog! I am not secretive

about much!

If you have read about my life, I have told you the things that would be interesting

but here goes:

1. I have been to Mexico and Spain as a high school student for one week each time,

junior year and senior year. I enjoyed using my many years of Spanish and I have lots

of good memories.

2.  I was in all the bands in high school (Pep band, concert band, Symphonic band,

and marching band)  playing my old “licorice stick” as my Grandpa called it. (Okay,

wooden clarinet!)

3. I like to snack on both salty snacks and sweet ones, too. (I have on other award

posts listed different ones…) I think this week it would be salsa and tortilla chips with

hot tamales candies. This goes along with the Spanish theme!

4. I am a hippie at heart. Recently someone said, “Robin never smoked pot, I bet!”

Hmmm….

I was in college during the years of 1974 – 1978, suffice it to say, I probably did.

5. I have been married three times, each one special in his own way. Not my true loves.

Nor my lifetime partner for sharing my kids and grandkids with, unfortunately.

6. I love to draw pen and ink with watercolor pictures, children’s books (4- I have written

and not published.) also I enjoy drawing historical homes, I did at least 8 home tours over

the years.

7.Last but not least, I have an interest in all kinds of nature. I enjoy hikes, walks, and looking

at the details in the way God or Mother Nature created the creatures, flora and fauna.

Here are some very special blogs to check out:

I am nominating only 10 (but these folks can follow the rules and list their honor roll of 15!)

1.  Nafees who writes wonderful stories of his faraway country http://www.facebook.com/imbdwords  or

imdbword.com  or Nafees Ahmed who has a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/imbdwords)

2.  Maxima who writes poetry that is romantic, with some photos and art,

http://hillsofherchastity.wordpress.com

3.  eyedancers (who nominated me last week):   http://eyedancers.wordpress.com

4.  Jason who writes a funny blog: http://squirrellywriter.com

5.  Jules who honors us all with such lovely poetry, haikus and rengas.

http://julesgemstonepages.wordpress.com

6.  Be With Us who makes special and unique jewelry, alway writing such positive and

encouraging posts:  http://cncfimoparadise.wordpress.com

7.  Marty47 who can really tell a great story about Chicago and has a vast lifetime or

cool experiences to continue writing about! http://martinwiegand47.wordpress.com

8.  Rebecca 2000 who is from my very beginning group of people I will always love.

I mean that, Becca! She will make you laugh and spray your coffee all over the place!

You can find her at:  http://ladyornot.com

9.  Jennifer S. who is sophisticated, reminds me of JeanKerr or someone famous who

speaks about today’s topics! She will make you think, smile, reminisce and also relate to

you as a parent…  http://40isthenew13.wordpress.com

10. A new post writer,   http://zamoracatalina.wordpress.com  (Funny and poignant

concerning divorce.)
