AWARD TIME!Thank you Child Lost for the award - and thank you for the kind words.
Linking my name with the word "hope" is truly a miracle and a gift from my God. As I commented on your blog - this is an amazing thing - considering I was depressed and had suicidal thinking for over 30 years.
WOW! Thank you God!
I decided to "go with the program" and try to choose six other bloggers to pass this award along to........very difficult because I love all the blogs I follow - that's why I follow them.
Shadow - (I guess this means you are getting two awards, but I didn't see anything in the directions that said I couldn't do it.) I always love the pictures, the poetry, the thoughts, the emotion expressed in your blog. It's funny how even though I have never met you and really don't know you, I feel that I am coming to know your "spirit" through what you write. And a beautiful spirit it is.
Lou - I so relate to everything you write. Kindred spirits in many ways is how I react to the things you express. You always connect with my "inner mother". I hope you understand what I mean by that. Love you Lou!
Jenn - You are an inspiration to me. I identify with your struggles. I relate with your situation. No matter what is happening you "keep on keeping on". I have watched you ask for help, be open to suggestions, follow directions, work the program as best you can, and I share your successes. KUTGW
Syd - I "ALWAYS" really "get" your blogs. They always speak to me in such a clear, precise way. I love Alanon and can't believe how much it has expanded my growth. I am forever grateful God led me there and I am grateful for your insights.
ZaneJabbers - You are always so completely honest and no nonsense. I love that. You always keep things simple when it comes to not drinking. Great reminders for all alcoholics. I also always love your gratefulness.
Alkyseltzer - (Some may say this is not fair since there is a connection beyond blog-reader here, but I didn't see anything banning this in the award directions.) I am amazed at Alky's insights, humor, and ability to convey recovery in the words he writes, and lots more. Love the blog-a-roni!
IF I HAD ALL NIGHT, I WOULD JUST BREAK ALL THE RULES
(the only one I actually know about is passing it on to six bloggers)
AND TAG ALL OF YOU.
