This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

New Blog Award...and Sharing Blogs...


I want to thank thisisme at Southhamsdarling ..."A little bit of everything" for bestowing this sun shining happy fantastic blog award to me and several others....She enjoys her retirement and grand children living by the sea in Devon, United Kingdom.

I am to post of a picture of myself at the computer blogging...since it is 3:36am, hubby is asleep, so the best I can do is to post a pic my sister took of me at my lap top.  She has a Samsung Fascinate cell phone with an app which transforms a picture into one looking like a painting...or a cartoon...you guys can decide...

So here is my picture of me focused and tuned into the world of blogging...


I would like to share this award with the following blogging buddies...( in no particular order)
Should you decide to accept this award, please post a picture of yourself blogging on your computer.

Linda O'Connell at Write From The Heart -  a writer who lives in St. Louis, MO trying to establish a writer's platform, which as she states, "is an absolute must for anyone hoping to publish a book."
Roland D. Yeomans at Writing In The Crosshairs. - newly published writer, dreamer, currently living and working as a blood courier in Lake Charles, LA.
Sherry O'Keefe at too much august, not enough snow... - Poetry editor and Poet, working on her second book of poetry, living in Montana with her two dogs.
Ellie King at Matters of the Heart - living in Puerto Rico, fighting her way back from the darkness of losing the love of her life and soul mate .  Her beautiful soul enriches through her poetry.
Kass at The K....Is No Longer Silent...living in Salt Lake City, UT.  She calls herself an "irrational optimist" but I call her a new blogging friend...
Wanda at Moments of Mine - living in Ohio, a lover of family and nature.  She claims to be an amateur photographer, but she sure fooled me... visiting her blog is like a visit to a spa...very serene and calming...

The above blogs are newer blogs to me, ones I have never given awards to and blogs I wanted to share... but please dear blogging friends, anyone who visits and would like to post a picture of themselves blogging, please feel free to copy and paste the award to your blog and please link back to my post and share the award with others. Please notify those you give the award to and post links to their blogs on your blog.  No limit on how many you share it with.

Thank you so much Thisisme...I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and friendship.

Thank you to all of you, my blogging buddies who make my days so much brighter and lighter, sharing the stories of our lives...

Hi Donna. Thanks for joining in with this, and it is nice to see that you have passed the Award on to others. That painting photo of you is very clever, isn't it? My intention is to create a collage when I have enough photos of my favourite blogging friends, and I agree with you, they do brighten our lives, don't they?

Thanks for the nudge. I'll get on it.
