Dragon Award Nomination! More Motivation!

Good evening to all my blogger friends. Just wanted to let you all know that I got back home from Puerto Rico safe after saying goodbye to my Petie. I did miss my colleague’s wake and funeral while I was away, but I heard it was beautiful and I would have been proud. That being said, I caught up on my messages and emails and lo and behold, a couple of good things happened too. They’re both worthy of their own posts, but I am doing this one tonight.

Another Nomination!

I have again been nominated for another award by the lovely and talented Ms. Briana Vedsted over at  http://whenibecameanauthor.wordpress.com. I am so humbled and moved that I’m at a loss for words. This time, Briana nominated me for the Shine On Award. I so adore that young lady. She, among a few others from my ever-expanding community, has given me so much confidence to continue pressing on. Thank you.
