It takes a Village


First I have to say I love the idea behind this award. It’s not about being “the best” or more inspiring than anyone else. It’s about being a community. For those of us who have been around a while and traded a plethora of awards it gets a little time consuming, well this Award in my humble opinion is not over barring nor to time consuming and it speaks to the reason many if us “Blog”
Not just get our story out there but it’s to reach out and help others rom our own experiences. To belong to a community of like minded people.
So here’s the deal: nominate the people you choose to it used to be 10 and tag bag the people who nominated you, but I think the important part is just to reach out and say “Hey, I appreciate you!!”
So here goes:
I’ve received 2 of these so far and have not replied due to life but this is part of my life so I’m making the time.
These two lovely ladies have nominated me for this award. If you haven’t already stop by and see what they do it’s worth it. As far as my nominations go they are as follows:

Ok I could go on and on but I’ll stop here for now. Yes I know some of the people I’ve nominated run none awards sites, sorry but I’m being greedy, I just buried my cat, my PD is killing me and this award is about community and you people are as much a part of my family as my flesh and blood family. Some of you I know personally and some of you I know only as a blogger but I love you all for different reasons and this is my way of letting you know.
Alright well happy Sunday I hope the day finds you well and your heart full of love and light.

  1. Thank you kindly dear Benjamin. I am honored, and appreciate. And huge congratulations to you — you are a tremendous inspiration to so many – myself included!! ~ Love and Light, Robyn


  2. great award indeed. Congratulations and thanks for the nomination again. I am so glad to have a family here on wordpress. šŸ˜€


  3. Oh, Benjamin. You’ve been on my mind all day. Heart heavy for the loss of your kitty and the realness and rawness of the night and aloneness and responsibilities and caring for others. My other friend is sensing her cat is near transition, so the overlap is eerily synching. thank your for sharing your joys, pains, and loss. sharing what is is the thing – and you mirror this beautifully for us all. X!


  4. Thank you so much for nominating me, Benjamin! I can’t wait to see what you come up with for a guest post. I go offline late tomorrow night (Sunday night) so hopefully you can email it before then (marla at )
