Be The Change – Take 6

I think it is time for another round of the Growing Self Blogger Award! It makes me smile when I see it out there, celebrating individuals that make such a difference in the lives of others. Once again, I love that there are so many amazing individuals, in the WordPress community, that are willing to extend kindness and support through the award nomination process. I am filled with JOY when I have made an impact on someone’s life through my words, photography or by just being ME. With that said, I would like to share round 6 of my nominations…

What is The Growing Self Blogger Award:

Your Gifts to Me

Nel – You always make me smile!  Your passion for books and reading is contagious!  Thank you for spreading knowledge about endangered animals.  I so look forward to not only learning, but celebrating these creatures with you!  You are making a difference and being the voice for souls that do not have a voice of their own.  Thank you!   I also appreciate that we share the same love for real mail!  My mailbox is happier, knowing that there is a little magic from Nel inside!

Robin – I have to ask the question…”Do you have your workout wear on?” I have so enjoyed getting to know you and your beautiful family through your writing.  We share the same love for Fall and have both survived remodeling projects this year!  I love your talent for decor!  I am sure I am not the first to take away ideas from your photos!  You have such a calming way about you.  I only wish we could meet up for tea and chat about chickens and critters that eat our veggies!

Shelly – YOU inspire me!  Your messages are filled with such beauty and passion.  You spread joy and kindness with all that you do!  You love yourself and encourage others to do the same.  Your whimsical illustrations always warm my heart and make me smile. Thank you for reminding us of the important things in life and what really matters!

  1. Roda,
    I am beyond honored and humbled for this award nomination.

    Your comment has touched my heart deeply. I have never met someone whoes heart is genuinely full of love and compassion as I have in you.

    And yes, I do have my workout clothes on each time you ask 🙂

    Spending time with you and becoming even more close friends would perfect.

    Thank you my dear friend.
