I meant to post something completely different yesterday, but then I received a big shock: I was nominated for the The Blogger Recognition Award!!! My reaction was to stare at my nomination, looking just like Macauley Culkin in ‘Home Alone’.


My nomination came through my friend and ‘sister’ RhapsodyBohème and her beautiful blog . She has been my support in this writing adventure, always with kind words, and 100% responsible for saving my book from anihilation. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! The funny thing is that she considers herself one of the ‘New Kids on the Blog’. What that hell is that going to make me? The New Toddler on the Blog? Probably!!! Haha!



  • Write a post to show your award;
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog;
  • Attach the award to the post;
  • Give a brief story of how your blog got started;
  • Give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers;
  • Select 5 other blogs you want to give the award to.

The wonderful people who have been following my posts know that I decided to start my blog when things became really difficult in my marriage. I wanted to let steam out and hopefully connect with people going through similar issues, or at least good people with a love of writing and supporting each other. If I could touch a single person’s heart through my writing, I would consider my mission accomplished.

What I got back instead was so much more and I can’t stop singing praise to the WordPress community who embraced me with open arms. I made friends and right now I don’t know where I’d be without them.

As I take my blogging baby steps, the only advice I can give is always write from your heart. Whatever you want to write about, be true to yourself and your beliefs and people will respond to that.


I’m pretty sure some of these people may have been nominated before, but I don’t see anything in the rules against doing it again so… Finally my dear nominees are:

My first follower and supporter. Recovering from something I may still well go through.

We don’t always share the same views, but there’s no denying you write from your heart. The way you now proudly show the world who you are is beautiful.

Your blog brings fun and joy. A light-heartedness that I so desperately need. Now that you are opening up yourself I love you even more!

Your poems make me smile; sometimes they make me cry; they speak to me.

No one else exposes their heart and soul like you do. If you’re in pain, we are in pain; If you’re happy, we are happy; I proudly call you my friend.

  2. Yay, bravo, so so proud of you and by no means are you a toddler lol. You already achieved what you set out to do and that is to inspire. Together we only work on adding more people to the list that we can help and offer inspiration, perhaps in situations unknown to us. We all have weak moments and can’t be strong all the time, nor should we be. So whatever our gift, if becomes so much more when we learn to share it with the world and you my dear friend have done so in the most beautiful way.
    Congratulations again. Xoxoxoxo.
    You go you toddler, baby steps lol. 😉❤️

      1. Best message I could get, you are already soaring 😉. It may be baby steps some day but on the good days, you soar and you are unstoppable. Hugs and you are very welcome.
