Very Inspiring Blog Award

There are some things I carry from when I was a child. Thoughts like:

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes last forever.

The lovely, and talented Sue Coletta from her Crime Fiction Writer blog nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blog Award. This particular blog award is much like that smile.

very inspir gold borderTo accept the award, I must:

  1. Display the award on my blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated me.
  3. State 7 things about myself.
  4. Nominate 15 bloggers, link to them, and notify them about their nominations.

Seven things about me…

1. Cats or Dogs: Since I matured and have become such a homebody, I love dogs. Give them a place to play and they will fill you to bursting with kind gentle love.

2. Salty or Sweet: I’ve broken down more than once for chocolate, but if the choice is right at my fingertip, I always go for the potato chips. I’m a taterholic.

3. Winter or Summer: The seasons mean everything to me. Each one more beautiful than the next. Christmas, newly fallen snow, warm fires are what I love most.

4. Beach or Mountains: For years I lived by the ocean and loved it best in colder months. Now that I’m back in the interior, love the mountain peaks, thick lush forests and the wildlife that thrives within.

5. Camping or Resorts: I’m not crazy. Resorts of course with good food, sparkling pools and cold drinks. We are talking vacation here.

6. Family or Friends: Both please. Let them fill up my life.

7. Moon or Sun: I like the moon, ever changing as the month goes on and creating all kinds of atmosphere depending on the season.

  10. You are so right about dogs–love those creatures. They are always loyal.

  11. I love the smile quote. I love a salty sweet sea salt, caramel and chocolate…omg mouthgasm.

  12. Congratulations on the award! You definitely deserve it. πŸ˜€

  13. I loved the quote because it’s true. A smile is soooo easy to give, even sometimes when it’s hard. Once, when our son was being bullied at school and he asked us why the bully was so mean, we first told him what the school had told us, that there were issues at home and the father wasn’t in the picture anymore, and then we talked to him about how it was so much easier to be mean than nice when you’re in pain. Our son got it. Sometimes giving a smile, even when you don’t feel like smiling helps the person smiling as well… I used to be a cat person, had them for years. Then we got a dog for the kids. I’m a dog person now and wouldn’t change that for anything! Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting! And congratulations on your blogger award!!! I’m addicted to salty things too… I swear, my thighs would be two inches smaller if I could just stop eating butter!!!!

  14. Congratulations on the award! Loved seeing your answers, and couldn’t agree more about picking a resort over camping! We used to camp in a tent when I was a kid and let’s just say that I was not a fan. πŸ˜‰

  17. Congratulation on the award! So well deserved! πŸ™‚

  18. A very wise quote that everyone should heed.

    I liked your question answers and am inclined to agree with you with all of them.
