A True Sense of Community

One of the unexpected pleasures of blogging, for me, has been meeting a lot of genuinely nice people in the blogging community.  So nice, in fact, that they have begun to restore my withered faith in humanity.  One of the nicest is my friend and kindred spirit, June, of Spatter.  So I was particularly pleased when June selected me for a Community Blogger Award, an award that celebrates “people who reach out and make the blogger community a better one.”   June herself was chosen for this award, and I am glad.  She deserves it.  Thank you, June for honoring me and for your kind encouragement of my writing efforts.


There are a number of deserving bloggers I’d like to pass this award to—writers who share their lives and bare their souls—so that we all can know that we are not alone in our struggles.   These bloggers’ lives may be different, but one thing they have in common is a sense of honesty and sincerity.  They are not afraid to speak their hearts and minds, to share their successes and failures, and to write of their joys and pain.  They blog straightforwardly, forthrightly, and truthfully.  And, for certain, our world needs all the truth it can get. 

So I’d like to recognize:

Wesley of Mountain Mama

CountryDew of Blue Country Magic

Sara of Speaking of Simplicity   

Marion of On The Blackwater            

Shannon of Going Crunchy

Thanks to these bloggers and all the others out there who write the truth of their beings, so that I and others can know we are not alone.

    Oh, wow! That’s so sweet! I’ve been without a connection for a week so no reading or posting…..and I so realized how much I missed it! I couldn’t wait to jump on my lunch break and see what has been going on in blog world. My husband had to restrain me from jumping online at 2:00 a.m. last night after we rolled back into town.

    Happy Belated Thanksgiving, and I appreciate you thinking of me. Shannon
