Mental Duck to Mental Swan Award
It has been a while since I offered up this award that is dear to my heart. Inspired by Renee..one of my biggest supporters and dearest friends..I thought it was time to add a few to the list.
The Mental Duck to Mental Swan Award is given to two amazing groups of bloggers;
1. To Bloggers who encourage and nurture others bloggers to explore and grow in their creative, spiritual or mental lives.
2. To Bloggers who are blooming and growing creatively, spiritually or mentally in their lives & sharing it on their blogs .
Please do not pass this one along....I like to give it out every now and again as a gift from me..Thanks!
So..... I thought it was time to offer up a couple more of my little award. You all amaze me every day here. I could give this to a 100 folks here. But..I will limit myself to a few folks that have really stood out of late. So as Renee inspires me, I hope I can inspire you a little. Thank you for all you do.
I have watched these folks consistently offer not only amazing support to me but many others across the blogs! And a few that have been growing like crazy!!! Yup I have been watching.
Barb Yes my sister Barb! She was a bit bemused by what a blog would offer her and a bit nervous - but boy look at her now!! She is Letting Fly with the blogging!!! Her deliciously written posts just keep bringing me back and her support - well it is amazing! Yeah - I love her!!!
Holdingmoments One of my very, very favorite wildlife photographers and an amazing supporter of my own baby photography work. But..not just my photography..but my blog in general! He is someone who I always look to for excellent posts and pics - but also a keep eye on life and a gentle word for all!! He bravely wades into our Quilting bees - I love that!! Yup I like him!!!
Bonnie Bonnie is not only an amazing supporter of me and others..but wowoza she is something in her own right!! I never fail to leave her blog without my head buzzing about something new or interesting I have been challenged to learn there! Plus - well..I really like her too!
Snap Snap is one of those folks that has been with me from the very beginning of my blogging here and has been a constant, amazing support and I think a good friend. I have watched her blog bloom as she has too! I guess I think of her as kind of a mentor - not sure she know this - LOL! Hope she does not mind too much!! Yes...I really like her too!!
Emmy Yup I like Emmy too!! I follow alot of women my own age and some follow me. I have a few young Moms - I love that! Emmy, well she is not only an amazing Mom..but an amazing woman!! She supports up all around her and offers such open comments and caring! I have watched her bloom on her blog and offer up real pieces of herself there. She is one of those young women you hope your daughters turn out to be!! I should be so blessed!! She is also someone I consider a friend!
Dede Dede is such an amazing woman - she really is. She is one of those truly genuine people..that real down to Earth woman that just is who she is and that is wonderful! She has been a huge supporter of mine and so many others. I love her work - go and see what she does!!! I hope I offer her something of value back!! She is amazing!!
So..here is a quack and a honk to all my swans - every one...thank you for being part of my world - I am blessed to know you! Namaste, Sarah
