She is SO open, SO Honest, SO Real….oh so beautifully real.Check out her blog, okay!  In her post a few weeks ago she passed out awards. In this post, Kana let her list of people pick the award they want. Here is the one I picked! Isn’t it pretty?

Reader Appreciatio Award

Here is what I picked—the  the Reader Appreciation Award. why? I am a reader that appreciates so very many blogs. There are weeks that go by that I don’t manage to post comments. but i love my bloggers with all my heart. If I have ever answered any of your comments, or commented on any of your posts, but you aren’t listed here, and you want this award–you may bestow it upon your blog. I don’t say this to diminish my admiration for the bloggers below. As a matter of fact, these bloggers are so open-hearted, I know they would love sharing with you! And–if passing the award on is burdensome, DO accept the award anyway. It’s ok, I won’t be following you around with a grade book 😉

oops—gotta share 7 things about myself:

  1. I love salad! (ok, i still love cookies, candy, and brownies—but no longer am i willing to pig out on them!)
  2. I love singing along with the great folk music and pop music from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s
  3. I love to encourage and be inspired
  4. when i was a kid we ice skated for hours every day on outdoor rinks….
  5. if i could go back in time i would love to be in philadelphia when they met to decide the declaration of independence, and to write the constitution.
  6. someday i hope to learn to be better at photography
  7. somedays i am brave, other days not so much!

Without further ado, here are some bloggers who really deserve this award!

  1. 1. Susan Michaels of Light Writers at inspires me. She makes you want to be a better person!
  2. Then there is lovely Judy at You will never tire of her posts, her words, her photography. So encouraging!
  3. Amy’s poetry at is impressive. Don’t you love that name, sharp little pencil? See, even her blog title is image-rich!
  4. Elizabeth at me, teaches me, expands my mind and lifts my heart. She is at Mirth and Motivation. ooooo go see her blog….really!
  5. Kathy at To Talk of Many Things She is one of the first bloggers I found. She loves Betsy-Tacy books—which were cherished books from my childhood. She is from Texas, and has a heart that is even bigger than Texas.
