My deepest thanks to Kate Bortell of http://katebortell.wordpress.com/ for this prestigious award. She has truly blessed me because as she stated, this award is “to commit to showing humility and love toward all others, and to enhance these virtues in ourselves and others.” Humility? Well that’s debatable but I’m honored that someone thinks so. And love? Absolutely! How I love all my followers who have encouraged me through their comments and support.
All of the nominees below have have touched my heart and life through their kind words. They have brought a smile to my face, a tear to my eye and always inspiration to my heart. Each possess courage and a positive, can-do spirit. These particular nominees are all over-comers who stared adversity in the face and said, “No, Not today! You cannot win! This day is for my LORD!!” As always I wish I could nominate so many more because my followers have become my friends and I hated to leave some out.
The criteria for the award (credit given to The Invisible Sage blogger, (http://theinvisiblesage.wordpress.com) said it better than I could)
The idea behind the award is to commit to showing humility and love toward all others, and to enhance these virtues in ourselves and others. It is also to encourage ten other blogs by co-nominating them because they show such traits as well. Key points then, as stated by another recipient of the award, are to:
- Show humanity and humility
- Show love
- Be yourself
- Don’t be others
- Don’t gossip
- Share the award with 10 others
- Link back to the person who nominated you for this award
- Display the award logo with pride on your blog/site. That’s it! Simple. Congratulations and go spread the love around!
