“Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.”
–Gladys Browyn Stern
I recently received word from my friend David Kanigan, creator of the fabulous blog Lead.Learn.Live , that he had nominated me for the “Blog of the Year” award. This is my second nomination for this award; I was also generously nominated by Cristi of the delightful blog Simple.Interesting a short time ago. Suffice it to say that, in the words of my Aussie pals, I was ‘gobsmacked!’
As I read through the list of my fellow nominees, my anxiety grew. Not only had I been included in prestigious company, but many of the blogs that I admire and follow myself were recognized as well, thereby narrowing the field for my own nominations. Fellow nominee, Mimi of Waiting for the Karma Truck quickly revved her engine and fired off her acceptance speech, pulling yet *another* chunk of my favorites out of play with her nominations. My panic mounted–how to properly acquit myself and do justice to the award–that became my challenge. And time, obviously, is of the essence. So without further hesitation, I offer up my nominees….
- Inga’s Angle: A wonderful photo journal of New York City. Inga has an unerring eye and always gives one a new perspective on the Big Apple.
- The Jolyn Project: This remarkable young woman again and again hits the mark–whether evoking a smile, laughter or tears, her posts never fail to move me.
- The Book of Alice: Alice, a.k.a. The Kidling, is one bright little light with observations that are by turns remarkable and risible; fortunately The Mama is on hand to capture the moments and provide ‘color commentary’ as needed.
All of these delightful blogs (and so many others), bring inspiration, laughter, insight, knowledge and wonder to my world each day, as do each of you who follow this blog and take the time to ‘like’ and comment upon my posts. Thank you for sharing a bit of yourself with me. The rules for accepting this award and sharing the wealth may be found at The Thought Palette.
