Show Some Love

This is a pause to say thank you to two female Bloggers whom I adore. They each handed me an award a bit ago. Thank you darlings!

I’ve thought of writing this thank you every day since receiving the nominations. It’s funny how parts of life crawl onto the relatively full plate and the things that matter get nudged off.

Like showing gratitude for being loved.

Patty, of Co-Creating and Cowgirl Wisdom, gave me the Liebster Award. She wrote about the Liebster nomination fabulously by answering 11 questions and asking good ones of her own. I love reading her posts. I learn from Patty and she gives me a smile with her cowgirl ways. She was over 50 years old when she followed her heart completely and bought her first horse! Hero status.

A young lady named Ash gave me the Sunshine Blogger Award. She is an absolute doll. We haven’t known one another very long, but she’s a soul you connect with instantly. She calls her Blogsite, ‘Diaries of a Recovering Pessimist’, but she must have started it years ago. The only thing I see in her writing is love and light.

Ash says, “Writing has saved my life.” That’s a profound statement and I’m oh so grateful it did!

Thank you my darlings! Much love, Barb. xx

Beauty from Ashes

I was nominated for The Sunshine Blogger award.

Thank you Gary, for the nomination.

I’m grateful each time someone nominates me, but it pains me to write a Blog that long in response, so the buck usually stops here. 🙂

If I type over 600 words in a post, I begin to hyperventilate, but I want to share his Blog.

Gary inspires me. A couple of months ago, he lost everything in a fire that ran through his town. I always tell myself, “Things can be replaced”, but it would still be devastating to lose every little thing.

He has not moaned, or whined about it. Instead he’s in a mellow space, and closer than ever to God.

Gary  is a fine example by sharing what’s on his heart, that God does bring beauty from ashes.

Share the Love

It’s been rainy all week in Texas. The timing was spot on to be awarded The Sunshine Blogger Award. ☀️

This award was given by Liz, at My Well-being and Learning Journey. Thank you darling for this gift.

Here are the rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions asked.
  • Nominate other bloggers and ask them questions.
  • List the rules and include the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.

Here are the questions asked by Liz.

  • Are you a city, beach, or country girl? I’m a country girl at heart, but I think of the beach daily.
  • If you could choose to live anywhere, where would it be and why? The beach. The sound of the ocean, feeling the breeze, and watching the waves are my Zen.
  • Do you have tattoos? I do not, but want some.
  • What are your favorite hobbies? Going to Farmer’s Markets and Antiquing.
  • After a stressful day, what do you do, to help you relax at the end of the day? I try not to have stressful days, but at the end of the day I enjoy curling up with a good book and a cuppa! 🙂
  • Are you a spring, summer, autumn, or winter person? I love all the seasons, but in Texas we go from Summer to two weeks of fall, to Winter with two weeks of Spring, and then Summer again, so I relish Fall and Spring.
  • Sweet or savory? Cake with buttercream icing.
