"One Lovely Blog Award!"

I would like to thank Pamela Maclean of From Barbies to Words for presenting me with a very special award for my blog. It is the:

"One Lovely Blog Award!"

According to the rules of the award, I am now supposed to identify fifteen (15) blogs whom I think are worthy of receiving this wonderful award, then I am supposed to post the nominees on my site, and then notify each of them individually.

Fifteen seems like so many for me to be giving this award out to, when I believe the whole point is to identify the "few" that stand out in my mind. Furthermore, I want to make sure that my nominees know that I am absolving them of the responsibility of having to select that many, because that means a potential total of 225 more nominees being generated on top of the 15 that I would have had to select. As you can see, a thing like this could get way out of hand in no time at all, especially when there is more than one award going around, and I want this to be a blessing to my nominees, and not a burden. So I am giving my nominees permission to nominate only five (5) of their most deserving blogs for the "One Lovely Blog Award!"

And here are the blogs and blog owners that I have chosen to become the recipients of the "One Lovely Blog Award!" :

  1. Author 101 et al from A Book Inside—How to Write and Publish a Book

  2. Carma Dutra from A LOOK AT CHILDREN'S WRITING through Carma's Window

  3. Diana Black et al from Bookland Heights

  4. Mayra Calvani from Mayra's Secret Bookcase

  5. Michelle McLean from Michelle McLean's Writer Rambings

Congratulations to my nominees and I hope you realize what an inspiration your blogs have been to me. It was a really tough decision to have to narrow it down to only the five (5) selections this time, but I think that it made me truly evaluate their sites closely and think about what I had learned from them. It was fun!

Until next time...stay safe, stay well, and may the Lord bless you all.

You're welcome and I'm so glad you like my site.


I remember when you first got started. I was so happy that I had a friend that I knew that would be coming to join me. I'm glad you're here.


You're quite welcome and you certainly deserved the award.


God bless you and Merry Christmas to all three of you!
