I’d like to thank Inkcouragement (over at this blog) for nominating me for the “Being a Light in the World Award,” after only about 2 weeks of this blog being public. This is such a compliment and it is wonderful to be recognized for something I do simply because I enjoy doing it. This award was created in 2012 by Barbara Matteo who blogs about women’s issues and spirituality on the blog idealisticrebel.
“Barbara created the LITWA to celebrate those wonderful people in our world who spread light, love, hope and peace in the name of humanity. Bloggers receiving this award are encouraged to continue promoting these virtues and work as a force of peace and light in the world, touching their readers’ hearts and making a difference in their lives, no matter how small. The award has as its background a scene of a beach taken at sunset with holidaymakers enjoying themselves. This picture was taken by Barbara herself. Just as the Sun in the picture brings light and sustenance to the Earth and is the reason why any living thing can exist on our planet in the first place, the LITWA is a gift to those bloggers who help shine the light into other people’s worlds, giving them sustenance, hope and happiness through the venerable dialogue of blogging.”
Thank you, Barbara for creating this award and thank you Inkcouragement for the nomination.
The rules (and those I am nominating) are as follows:
1.Thank the person who gives you the award
2.Spread this award around to the people who you know who are doing this work, so that the work continues and the light is spread
3.Let your nominees know
4.Never give up on your fellow human beings
My nominees, in random order, are:
jovisgoes whose poetic critiques of history and war remind us to live with hope and peace in our hearts.
gilhooley52 whose work brings light by inspiring us to leave time for things that bring us joy in our lives.
momfawn whose personal blog illustrates the importance of loving all those around us.
Congratulations nominees! Your blogs are an inspiration!
