Many thanks to Rae at WeatherVane for honoring me with the Kreative Blogger Award. The community of bloggers is something that I didn't know much about when I started this blog, and I've really enjoyed getting to know so many interesting, creative, and profound people.
I'm supposed to tell you about seven things I'm grateful for.
1. Frink, the love of my life, who taught me how to laugh again.
2. My family.
3. Birds, especially those that sing outside my window in the morning.
4. Canyons and deserts.
6. Cats, the most beautiful creatures on the planet.
7. The whole universe. Okay, this sounds silly, but how can you not be grateful for stars, and planets, and oceans, and mountains, and kangaroos, and bamboo, and fireflies?
I also get the pleasure of nominating seven bloggers for this award. I know that not everyone out there participates in awards, so I won't have my feelings hurt if they don't accept. But these are a few of the blogs that have brought me pleasure, amusement, and insight. In no particular order:
The Women's Blogger Directory A great source for learning about wonderful blogs.
Blogpourri A beautiful, insightful writer and an incredibly generous member of the blogging community.
Tina, at Passive and Aggressive A funny, brave, inspired writer.
Butler and Bagman one of whom may be more Hemingwayesque than he knows.
The writers at An Awfully Big Blog Adventure, who allow me to live vicariously through them as I pursue my quest to publish my children's books and my memoir.
Chrissy at I Shoulda Been a Stripper, an amazingly honest writer and story teller.
Adlibby, who I nominated for another award but who deserves another one because she's having a rough year.
