Very Inspiring Blogger Award

 

I’ve just received a Very Inspiring Blogger Award from friend and fellow blogger Deanie Humphries-Dunne. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am; it’s been a long time since I’ve received one.   🙂

The rules for accepting this award are as follows:

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and link to their blog.
2. Display the award logo.
3. Nominate at least 15 other blogs (about) and provide a link where they can be found.
4. Then, let them know you nominated them, and where to find the information they need to accept (rules).
5. Mention three things that inspired you the most during the past few weeks.

There are so many people and things that have inspired me, not only over the past few weeks, but years too. Most recently, I’d have to say the top three things that have inspired me to move forward and work towards completing my goals are:

 

  1. My Fellowship of the Dragon – They keep me in serious check.

  2. My daughter Mandy who’s been going above and beyond for me lately

  3. My neighbor and friend Tamera who has been a godsend for me, truly.

I know that many of the bloggers that I’m nominating already have a ton of awards. I’m nominating them because I want them to know how much they mean to me and how much they inspire me. Whether they choose to nominate anyone else, post about it, or display the award is completely up to them.

That being said, here is my list of nominees:

  1. Alex J. Cavanaugh
  2. Al Diaz
  3. David Powers King
  4. Mark Koopmans
  5. Elizabeth Seckman
  6. Lisa Buie-Collard
  7. Melissa Maygrove
  8. Morgan Shamy
  9. Jo Wake
  10. Dani Bertrand
  11. Jackie Felger
  12. Rebecca Bradley
  13. Charles Yallowitz
  14. My Miracle Life

Again, thank you Deanie for this wonderful award. I am deeply humbled. Now I’m off to let my nominees know… Until next post everyone, have a great one!

 

 

 

Expressing Gratitude for the Butterfly Light Award Nomination

Happy Sunday, fellow bloggers. Going through my comments, I find that I have been nominated for the Butterfly Light Award by my friend Deanie Humphrys-Dunne, author of award-winning children’s book Tails of Sweetbriar.Butterfly Light Award

Conditions For Accepting The Award
Here are the conditions for accepting the award :
1. You must write an acceptance post, making sure you link back to the blogger who awarded you and thank them. You MAY NOT lump this award in with a batch of other awards.
2. You must individually name and re-award to a minimum of 1 blogger. You must let them know either personally with a comment on their blog OR a pingback.
4. You must write a short paragraph entitled either “How I’m Spreading Light” OR “How I’m A Positive Influence”
5. Display Belinda’s lovely “Butterfly Light Award” badge on your blog.
Thanks so much, Deanie for thinking of me for this Award! It is a special one and I will treat it as such. 🙂 I’m so blessed to be able to call you my friend.
How I’m a Positive Influence
I am a positive influence by offering the best advice I can to the younger generation. Back when I was still working as an EMT, I had countless ‘kids’ who were either EMTs or paramedics half my age that came to me for advice, both personal and job related. It took me over a year of therapies after my bleed to be able to slowly start my blogging and writing adventure. I look at my WordPress site and still don’t know what half the doohickeys do, but I’ll learn. After a handful of recent heart-wrenching losses, I’m researching sites and resources, so I can make them available to others. I’ve picked up many other things along the way and share what I’ve learned freely. I believe in paying it forward; I promote other writers and artists works, so others can do the same.
I consider this to be a very special Award, and because of that, I am only nominating one blogger for it:
Jo Murphey-THE MURPHEY SAGA has inspired, motivated and, at times invisibly knocked sense back into my head whenever I would have a ‘woe is me’ day. Her Sunday stroke posts are especially helpful. I subscribe to her blog by email and read it always. I know how busy she is and don’t expect her to be able to follow the rules and guidelines required for accepting this Award. I wouldn’t be surprised if she did, though; at the end of her posts, she always ends with: “Nothing is impossible with determination.” Her faith, determination, and motivation helps fuel mine. I love her! 😀
