Kreativ Blogger Award

I love it! My thanks to

A sweet award!

My thanks to for this very nice gift.

The blogging community is one I’m proud to be a part of for several reasons, the best of which, I guess, is that I have a sense of belonging.  I could say the best reason is because I’m among many bright, intelligent, generous and genuinely caring people, some of whom I’ve become friends with, because that’s true, but if I didn’t feel like I belonged, then I probably wouldn’t be here blogging.

For a long time, I wrote silently in my journal, always wishing that one day I’d be able to write a book, or maybe newspaper articles, (or anything for that matter) and that somebody would want to read what I wrote.  And then I discovered blogging, rather accidentally.  I saw the Publish button and thought how cool is that!

The first comment I received was from a woman who told me that my home page wasn’t configured properly.  This is important for a blog.  I didn’t realize at the time that this sort of unconditional thoughtfulness would be an ongoing theme in the blogosphere.

What does this have to do with my having received the Kreativ Blogger Award?  I’ll try to tell you.

It’s about belonging, being heard, being acknowledged, being appreciated, and hoping that I’ve been able to add something of value to a wonderful and inspiring community of people from all across the world.

Now, of course, with an award, there are rules. 

1. Thank the blogger who presented you with the award.

Again, Thank you Deb! I love your blog.

2. Post a photo of the award.

Hope you can see the pretty award above.

3. Share ten things about yourself that readers don’t know.

I don’t know what all you know, but here goes.

1. I don’t know enough about computers to be operating one, but I do it anyway.

2. I have a hard time relaxing.

3. My Dad raised Beagles.

4. I wish I could live my life closer to the land.

5. My heart is broken in several places.

6. I’m scared a lot.

7. I don’t feel as strong as people say I am.

8. I believe humans have the potential to make the world a better place.

9. I feel the energy of thoughts.

10. I would not vote for any of the Republican Presidential Candidates, even if I was a Republican.

3. Present this award to six bloggers.

  1. Just dropping in to wish you well and hope you havent over done things.. Love and well wishes to you Sue xx



    • Hi Dreamwalker,

      Well, it seems you are connected to my Spirit. Indeed, I overdid things. Exhaustion, and many responsibilities, without much of a break, has been very difficult lately. Since I can’t leave, which I’d like to do, and go walk on the beach for a few days, I guess I must figure out how to get short respites.

      Thank you, my dear friend, for checking in on me. It truly means a lot to me. Big hugs and Love to you, Michelle.

  4. Richly deserved!



  5. Thank you, sweet Michelle! I am very honored to receive this award, and appreciate all your kind words – along with the wonderful friend you’ve become!

    I think you *are* a very strong person – look at all the difficulties life has handed you (and continues to hand you), and yet you are still here, fighting for better care for your son, for doctors to listen, and sharing the most amazing & inspiring words with us! Yes, its a struggle, but you continue on with strength & fortitude, and most of all, with love.

    Many blessings, my friend!



    • Thank you Ash. Your words mean a great deal to me.

      I’m trying to keep on and be strong. Having a friend in you is a blessing and sure helps me to continue!

      Blessings, Big hugs, and Congratulations for being a Kreativ Blogger 🙂

      Love, Michelle.
