Okay, I am stunned!!! No, shocked!! No, delighted!! No, squirming in my chair!!! Every word I write is like dripping blood. And to have that acknowledged and recognized!! I was given this award by Phoenix – the Rebirth of Life. See here. Phoenix describes herself thusly:
Just an ordinary young woman who suffers from mental illness who wants to rule the world one day; erasing one stigma at a time.
Check her out!! Phoenix says her goals are to:
Raise mental illness awareness. Stop the stigma. Save a life.
Now, I understand my responsibilities are as follows:
- Thank the person who nominated you for the award! A warm, hearty, & standing ovation thank you to Writer X for recognizing how “beautiful” my blog is!
- Add The Beautiful Blogger Award logo to your post and blog.
- Nominate 7
beautiful bloggers and say a little something about why you love their blog.
- Notify the nominees by commenting on their blog
Well, I’m new at blogging, and i never expected my writing to catch on as fast as it has. I have rambled and repeated a lot. And I’m not too swift on WordPress. So I will have to give this some careful thought, and work on it over the next few days. But work on it, I will. Stay tuned — might need some guidance from Phoenix.
In the mean time, I will re-quote my all-time favorite poem by Emily Dickinson:
IF I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
I would not be alive to write these words if not for my little dog, Otis. You can read about her in these posts:
Thank you, Phoenix!!! ❤
