I am honored to be nominated for my first blogging award: The Versatile Blogger Award (which apparently also means I’ve received the award, I wasn’t sure at first if there was to be a vote, or what happened next…) I am grateful to Tia at Life: Everyone Has One for the award, and encourage you to go check out her blog.
I’m grateful, but also have to say I’m not sure how versatile I really am, here, at least. This blog is singularly devoted to this particular journey I’ve shared with my older daughter in her last year of life, along with her writing. In the rest of my life I’d say I’m versatile, but here I feel I’m much more focused than I am elsewhere, and I like having one place in my life where that is true. So on to “the rules”…
Here are the rules for those of you I have nominated (which means you’re receiving the award!):
1: Display the award on your page.
2: Announce the win with a post, and link it back to your nominator as a Thank You!
3: Present 15 awards to those of your choosing.
Here are 15 blogs that I love, some related to the topic of loss and grief, and some that are simply wonderful writing. An eclectic mix:
2. Forever 21
5. Hollowed Out
6. Geo Sans
11. Born By a River
13. Mourning Mama
4: Post 7 things about yourself.
One: I like beauty. Of all kinds.
Two: I like comfort, since I was a baby, I’ve loved soft things.
Three: I love good food, but don’t especially like to cook.
Four: I love my family, and I like all of them, and enjoy spending time with them.
Five: I have the best dog in the world, a shih tzu named Tilly, who is 12.
Six: I am grateful, for all that has happened in my life, even the most difficult and challenging things.
Seven: I had no idea how much was involved in receiving an award, but I’m happy and honored to be given this one!
5: Alert your nominees of their award status.
