Honored Award ….times Three

Blog of the Year Award 3 star jpegI haven’t been keeping up with acknowledging the people who have honored me with some awards. But it’s time that I do so with the fact I have been nominated three times for the 2012 Blog of the Year Award. The people who have done so are three wonderful bloggers.

Terry    http://terry1954.wordpress.com/about/ nominated me for the ‘first’ star of this award. Terry has many followers. While much of her writing is of her brother who suffers from Parkinson’s, she is also an accomplished fiction, poetry and other subjects on her blog and is currently in the process of writing a book. You really should check her blog out. Thanks Terry…..

Holly http://writingstraight.com/about/ nominated me for the ‘second’ star of this award. I have known Holly for a few months and she is such an inspiration when she writes. She writes beautiful blogs but is also a writer with many talents. She has written for many magazines and even a novel called ‘Crooked Lines’. She enjoys traveling and is married to a Minister of the Word in the Episcopal Church (called Anglican Church in Canada where I live) Please visit her site….you’ll not be sorry. Thanks Holly for thinking of me.

Eunice http://nutsfortreasure.wordpress.com/about/nominated me for the ‘third’ star of this award. I haven’t known Eunice for a long time but long enough to know I enjoy her blogs. Her love is photography and poetry and writes for ’20 Lines a Day’.  She also is very creative and makes beaded jewelry and such and does offer it for sale on http://www.zazzle.com/eunice356+eunice356+gifts. I really enjoy her writing and so please go to her site and have a look. Thank You Eunice.

  4. Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
  5. You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience
  6. As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

I am going to nominate for this award four people, but there are so many more wonderful bloggers that I could go on and on. Please know that all of  those who I ‘follow’ …. I receive so much insight, inspiration and blessings.

1. http://quietbpd.wordpress.com/This is a blog that is the story of a young woman who is struggling through Bipolar disorder and other disorders that involve depression. She is currently in a hospital and is trying with all her heart to ‘be well’. That is her challenge and her goal. Her posts are very emotional and my heart and love go out to her in the way of encouraging her that she can make it.

2. http://behindthemaskofabuse.wordpress.com/This is a young woman who was raised by a Narcissistic father and was abused emotionally. She was also abused physically. Because of this she suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. There are other issues as well physically. Her blog is full of hope for those who have suffered similarly and is an inspiration to read her blogs and poetry. She has published a book called ‘Buckwheatsrisk-About Abuse and Recovery‘ and also a book of poetry called ‘If I could Write My Heart’ and you can find on  http://buckwheatsrisk.com/store/  By the way this link to her word press site is a temporary one as her original site is ‘under construction’.

3.http://appletonavenue.wordpress.com/about/Linda is a woman who has Multiple Sclerosis as do I, but that is not why I have nominated her. She writes from her heart and is currently facing many challenges, one of which is having the government acknowledge that she is indeed disabled.  She is enduring a lot of stress but she is persevering.

4. http://faithandmeow.wordpress.com/about/ Fiona is such an inspiration to all those with eating disorders and the personal reasons that are part of it. She has written and given so much information and first hand experience about this terrible disorder. She has been through so much in her life and yet has struggled and persevered through unimaginable circumstances almost losing her life to the point she is optimistic about her future now!

Now I must advise the nominees and then get to reading some of the blogs that are waiting. I got behind because a couple of days ago my internet went down. If you want to download the banner that has a different number of stars the Blog of the World sites have them.

I realize that some bloggers accept awards but do not necessarily go through the whole process. That’s okay because the award is just to acknowledge you and your writing…

Oh and by the way Have a very Merry Christmas everyone and many blessings in the New Year….Diane

  8. I’m blown away, honoured. Thank you so much for nominating me!
    I’m not surprised you have been nominated too, Diane, you are a special member of our blogging world because you give to so many, a truly precious gift. xx

    • You’re so welcome Fiona…I want you to know that if ever I’m feeling low all I have to do is think about friends like you and re-read the beautiful things you say to me….and I will feel immediately better….Diane

  9. Diane, I am so thrilled for your recognition for who you are! Such a very special lady! I am finally back home. It took me 2 full days of sleeping around the clock to “recover” and then 2 doctor appts. I came back w/full blown sciatica. Bent over, tiny steps. I got a cortisone shot into my lower spine yesterday that was blessed relief! Moving is going to be quite interesting as Dennis is having trouble with his hips too. Ah getting old! fun isn’t it? well I know the Lord loves you dearly and even tho I can’t seem to follow thru on a phone call-I do too. You are precious to me. I am so proud of you for getting these awards-none other than you could possibly be such a winner.

    • Thanks Cindy…You’re my biggest confidence booster….I was thinking of you over the holidays…but so many were busy or away visiting that they didn’t get to blogging..

      It seems physically if it isn’t one thing it’s another for you and I am so sorry….My lower back (I don’t know what part is involved) has been bothering me also so I can empathize with the severity yours is. When are you planning to move….I hope that there is time for healing to take place.

      We’ve had a bit busy time lately also but it will settle down soon.

      You just take care of yourself and hope Dennis feels better soon too. You’re right ‘getting old’ has it’s drawbacks for sure….Diane

  10. [...] Wayne of Waynemali has chosen to honor me with several awards. Wayne is also a recent connection through blogging, He very admittedly is a recovered alcoholic, but it has been almost a year since he stopped drinking and became a Christian. He writes about his issue, but also shares photos and poetry. You should take a look at his site.  I share these awards with several other bloggers. Three of  these awards I have been nominated previously so I will not do the process again.  The Illuminating Award  The Liebster Blog Award and The Blog of the Year Award. [...]
