Award Time

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."
- Anais Nin


Casdok,
beautiful mother of "C", gave me this wonderful award! She does a lot for the world by bringing attention to autism and does it with love and kindness for which "C" is oh so lucky and blessed to have such a Mom. This made my day. Thanks Cas!

I'd like to pass this along to all my blog buddies...because of all your great support and love and hugs you've all given me over the past month. It's meant at lot to me.


And....HeartinSanFrancisco
who I love and admire dearly and have been reading for a while now, had this so say:
"Odat at Odat's Mumbling epitomizes a classy lady. She always gives 300% to others with warmth and a wacky sense of humor and asks nothing in return, which is one of the reasons so many of us love her dearly."
Wow.
That made me cry, but in a good way, and I feel the same about her. Thank you Heart.....for this award...which my blog will wear proudly.

I have so many "best blogging buddies" that I've gotten to know and some of you I've even met over the years and some I've spoken to on the phone..... Blogging has opened up a whole new world to me. Thanks to all of you. With that said, I want to pass this award to:

My best blogging buddy:
Michael C, from The Wonderful World of Nothing Worthwhile
I think Michael is the second blog I ever read and have been reading him since he started. He should be writing for Saturday Nite Live ...a very funny guy.

and

Deb, my sarcastic, witty, blogging idol, from Boondoggled
She is the one who got me to blog in the first place, much to my protestations! I thank her for introducing me to this great forum! I also thank her for being a good friend. She's one of the "buddies" I actually met in person, on her way to Scotland she had a 5 hour layover at Newark Airport.

and to

Mike, owner of Notorious Tom.
The creator and director of the Writer's Experiment and the organizer of 55 Flash Fiction Friday
which got me off my lazy azz and got me to write a lil sompin original, and who is just a nice, nice man.

Peace
