Leeann at the world: through the eyes of me has given me the You Make Me Smile Award. Leeann is a newer blogger and I have really enjoyed getting to know her through her blog. I really enjoy reading her posts and would have awarded this to her, had she not been the one to receive it first.
The maker of this award created it for this purpose.
"The thing that I love most about blogging is that I learn so much about a
person just by reading their blog. I have met MANY wonderful people with
wonderful stories to tell, and I am grateful every day for each person that I
have the pleasure of crossing paths in life with. I wanted to create something
special for the people who have inspired me through their blogging; the stories
they tell, and the lives that they lead with grace and dignity. I visit their
blogs for inspiration and encouragement. Although there are MANY people I want
to give this award to at this very moment, I am going to choose five bloggers:
Please grab your badge and wear it(with a smile) proudly, and pass it on because
you inspire and encourage me, thank you. So, now it is my turn to pass it on."
Now, as most bloggers know, it is easy to get a big head here in Bloggityville. Awards are passed around, a lot. I am not saying that I am not grateful, but I would like to do my part in making awards mean a little more. So, for that reason, I am only going to give this to one person. Whether she passes it on to one, five, or anywhere in between is up to her.
I am awarding this to Melody at Slurping Life. Not only does she challenge me to get in touch with my feelings (the nerve!) but she is real. She has her good days, bad days, tiring days but she tries to look at the humor in it all. And I have fallen in love with those boys of hers. Not too many people in bloggityville have impacted me on a daily basis like she has. And for that reason, she makes me smile.
