First I must give thanks to this wonderful kind-hearted person whom nominated me for this award.
This is the type of thing that truly deeply touches my heart. If I could take all the weak, hungry,broken and down hearted people of our world and fix, mend console or for a lack of a better word embrace with loving arms I would.
I’ll try to keep it short(ish): Moments Matter
I’ve sat on this award in draft mode for a several days, When I look back at my life and I try to think of one moment that matters more than most or a pivotal moment
that changed my life forever, and to be honest with you, 99% of them are horrid. Death, Loss, confusion, panic and sadness. Then I started to think about well if that’s my life then why would someone nominate me for this most amazing award and it came to light. Yes the moments matter, but I think what the really important part about this award is about is what you do this those moments. Because of the things that I’ve experienced in my life I have chosen a path of friendship, love, compassion, healing and honor.
I make a conscious effort to effect change in my life everyday. I when I say my life im not always talking about me personal. “my” life touches many people, people in the blog world the Art world and in my day-to-day physical life. So how am I effecting change in my life without changing anything about my life. I’m making the world a better place for others in hopes that their lives might be better in turn making everybody life a little better and so forth. Sure we could talk about how great it made me feel to hobble across the street the other dat and help a little old lady across ( true story). Or how good it makes my heart feel when during Christmas last year I gad the Union Gospel Mission enough “new” hats, gloves and scarves to heat an army. Yes giving and helping others makes me feel good. It should make everyone feel good.
So when asked what moments matter to me, I would say all of them, every smile, hug, handshake and kind word I can shake rattle and roll out of this body. Every sunset, flower, smell of fresh-baked cookies and the smell of the sea or a fine country field, those moments matter. So in the spirit of this award I’m going to nominate some blogs, some of these people are “no award zones” so on purpose I might be a little vague but I think it important that they at least know that I think highly enough of them as human beings to nominate them for this award.
Okay so the next time I get nominated for an award im going to copy and paste every single blog I follow, because I actually feel kind of bad that I need to stop. I’m sure I’m way over the 7 or 15 or what ever random number I’m supposed to stop at. Every blog I follow has touched me in a way that made me stop and think and just think about that. what kind of gift these people have that they can stop time for an individual, the one thing that everybody wants more of and nobody can truly has to give you more of.
I right that’s it If ive named you blog in this giant list of people and you do not wish to be on this list please accept my apologize i have the memory
of a small furry animal these days and for those of you who are not on this list, im sorry my hand, shoulder,back got tired and I really need to be off this laptop
