I Have Been Truly Blessed!!

have both notified me this week that I have won two more blogger's awards.
For me, that means plenty of shock and awe.

Aria awarded me this award:
Sara awarded me this award:

Blogging and trying to learn all about the gadgets, widgets, contests and links (which I still don't do very well!) has been brand-new for me since I started my blog (when I retired a few short months ago), so this astounds me.

I am humbled and can't thank all my readers enough.

I am slowly learning how to add things to my blog. I am sure there is a manual called "Blogging for Dummies" so I will go on-line and search for one. Because I could really use one! (I do everthing by trial and error).

It started out as just a journal for me and a way to find my way back to creative writing,which has been a passion of mine for the past 40 years of my life. I have always written, but just for me. Having a new forum (a blog on-line) to share with others, was a brand new concept and attempt for me and I have self-taught myself how to do it, along with watching what some of you all did on your beautiful blogs.

S0, to have gotten some blogger awards means a LOT to me, as a novice, especially.

The people who have given blogger "awards" to me continue to be my mentors in this newly-found addiction and I consider them the real experts in this newly-found world of wonderful writers.

They say the more you give, the more you receive.

Well, ladies, I know this will happen for you.

You continue to MAKE my day! Please know that you have many fans reading your writing, too. It doesn't matter if you ever get officially published (or Aria, if Oprah ever finds you!).....because you touch many people's lives who read your blogs that you don't even know.

I know.

Because I am definitely one of them.

Learning to blog by trial and error is far less deadly than learning to drive that way... besides, that's how all the great ones do it... *ahem*

Great Big Smileys At'cha Woman!

And... thank you... Very Very much for your acceptance speech, but I am not, will not, can not ever give up hope about the Oprah call... *wink*
