You Make My Day

Marsha over at Just Some Thoughts has given me a very lovely award called You Make My Day. It is pretty, isn't it? Just the kind of thing you want to put on your sidebar.

Marsha was one of the first people to read and comment on my blog. (Actually, she might have been the first commenter.) Imagine my surprise and delight late one evening as I was writing a blog post, thinking that my wise words were going out into nothingness, and all of a sudden, there were nice words underneath one of my posts! This is when my addiction started.

This was also back in the day when I didn't know how to put up an image, or a hyperlink, or put fancy designs on my sidebar. Marsha actually was one of the people who helped me learn how to do some of those things. (Barbara has also been very helpful.)

Anyway, the hardest thing about getting these awards is deciding who to pass them along to. Several of my blog friends are "can't miss" for their everyday posts, but today I want to honor Ruth at Ruth's Visions and Revisions. I love reading her daily posts, and when she comes over to make a comment, it also makes my day!

Always glad to help. :)
And, yes, Ruth has a wonderful blog!

That is great and so well deserved.

That said, you should come by my blog as you have yet another sidebar item to display...

I'm sure your reflections and insights make many people's day. I know I enjoy them. Well deserved recognition.

Diane, abundance of honors are being bestowed upon you and well-deserved! It's a joy to know you and to read your blog. Thank you, thank you. I'm also glad you honored Ruth in return.

Thank you so much. I haven't had any time to read blogs today--I just got home and found your comment on my blog. I had to go to a retirement dinner for a former colleague, and it was a very long, rainy drive each way.

Anyway, you very much deserved this award for your blog. And I'm touched that you thought of me.

That's such a lovely story about Marsha. I'll have to visit her blog . . . maybe tomorrow.

Sorry I'm incoherent. I'll do better tomorrow.
