What a beautiful way to start a rainy day! When I checked into Blogger this morning, I found this wonderful surprise from Cathy Mendola (Reflections of a Ramblin'Girl). It was accompanied by the following message:
"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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 clever-written text into the body of their award."
Thank you, thank you, Cathy, for your friendship. And thank you for this lovely, meaningful award. Being new to blogland, I'm thrilled and grateful for the wonderful new friendships and comraderie that I've found. I can't imagine my life without this supportive, artistic community of like-minded spirits. You'll need to stop by Reflections of a Ramblin' Girl to read Cathy's beautiful words. They totally encapsulate what this wonderful new world is all about.
Later today I'll be passing this award on to eight more deserving people in the spirit of friendship and creativity. Once again, thank you, Cathy, for this honor. I am humbled and filled with gratitude.
