I got an award...

...Well, actually I received several and although I feel honored to have received these awards, I find that it is very time-consuming to do all that is necessary and comes with the acceptance of the awards.

But, I'm going to have a go at it here. I must say again, that I do feel very grateful for each one and the love in which they were given. I have met so many kind and loving people here in blogland that are very inspirational and accepting of me, my art and the things I believe are important in life.

Thank you to all of you who come to visit here and for all the lovely comments and kind words that you have offered me. I truly appreciate each one.

This post on awards will be my last...on awards that is... and if I am to receive others, I will kindly accept them and post them on my sidebar but I will not be able to participate in the challenge of posting each one and all that goes with doing this.

So, here goes...

Kreative Blogger Award-Thank you Lisa Cole at Seeing Stars. The rules...State 6 things you LOVE and pass the award on to 7 others.

I love my life

I love my God

I love flowers

I love my friends

I love my daughter & my fiance

I love to love

The Lovely Heart Award from Ronnie at Biddy Brain

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

One Lovely Blog Award from Serena at Dream with the Fishes

The rules are as follows:

1. Add the logo to your blog.

2. Link to the person from whom you received this award.

3. Nominate 7 or more blogs.

4. Leave a message on their blog, letting them know they are “One Lovely Blog”!

Ok, all done, hours later...and Thank you again for the awards, I'm honored!

Nice awards, thanks for mentioning my blog. I don't know how to add a logo to my blog. I am not to swift that adding things because they all seem to have to be cut and pasted. ????

Hugs ~~~~~

Dear Leslie, as you know, I wrote to you personally when I got word of your gracious award gift - and your post hadn't made it up when trying to explain why I wasn't sure if you wanted to give it to me, since I knew I wouldn't follow the rules :) that I no longer participate in awards 'cause the work it takes to pass these things along...
well, then your post went up and you have said it all beautifully!! I SO appreciate being included, and thought of, thank you.
much gratitude and love,

Leslie said...

I wish I was sunning myself on a tropical island today-nope I'm here in Virginia-in the cold, but I'll get to an island sometime this year.

The photo is from my last trip to Jamaica!

Congrats on the awards! Thanks for nominating me too:)) They are lovely to receive but as you say, can be time consuming and hard to do because you don't want to leave anyone out. Have a great week:))

I can understand how you feel about them...I have just before coming over here posted up another award and invited others to receive if they wished...I'll see how that goes. I find it too hard to choose...Love to you, Dzintra

Thank you so much Leslie. Coming from you, this award means a lot to me. I agree that it takes a lot of work to pass it on etc, but I decided that putting in the extra effort was well worth it if it makes someone else feel as worthwhile as it makes me feel. So I will do the necessary and pass it on.

Thank you Leslie for such a sweet award and including me.
You did have quite a job to do.
Congrats to have it finished.
And thanks again so much,

Scott said...

Leslie, you are an award. How do I know this? By the list of 6 things you love. I'm glad it was limited to 6, I have a feeling that if it were not, you would still be writing about the things you love.

Cinzia said...

Hugs and kisses!

Hi Leslie,

Sorry I'm late. Congratulations on all the beautiful awards, and thank you for passing the Lovely Blog award on to me as well. How sweet of you. I have 3 awards to acknowledge and limited time, so will do it one day this week. I have a hard time choosing just a few people to pass it on to, as I love all the blogs I visit, so we will see.

Have a great day!
