And the Oscar goes to.......

It is time for me to pass on my lovely award...

I've thought long and hard in trying to decide who to pass it onto. The choices were difficult. There are so many blogs that I follow (when I get a minute in the day infront of the computer alone) and there are so many of them that make me stop and think. Those I love the best. The ones that touch me deep inside and make me cry, or laugh, or get angry. There are bloggers out there that have such a gift for writing and those that share stories about themselves that allow you to live in their shoes if only for that moment.

There is a particular blogger in my blog universe who has been there from the start -- listening, commenting, and always letting me know how my stories have touched her. Her blog is so beautiful and so well written that if you have not had a chance to visit it yet, please do yourself the favor. She is a kind person. An empathetic soul. A beautiful woman, inside and out. A woman who has lived a full life and still has so much more living to do. Ironically, she is also from Australia and since I began my new venture, she has given me such emotional support to go on. Little does she know the impact she's had on me and how much I look forward to her weekly comments on my blog.

So it is with great pleasure and great honor, that I pass along the "One Lovely Blog Award" to ....

The envelope please......

How exciting!!!!!......
