How wonderful! I’m thrilled to be nominated for the 7-In-One Award by my friend and fellow blogger, Pat Ruppell at “Plain Talk and Ordinary Wisdom“.
Pat’s posts are certainly “Kitchen table stories to inspire and warm your heart” and I so look forward to her tales and photos about family and friends which she writes just as if I’ve pulled up a chair at her kitchen table. Each post is written with genuine love, some have a message but all are well worth a read.
This award is new to me and is composed of 7 awards in one, each individual and unique. Thank you so much Pat for thinking of me for this award. It is much appreciated.
There is so much friendship and love between bloggers as we share tales and respond to each others posts. I hope in my blog I have introduced you to Norman, a man who was very dear to me and was such a character, but also that I’ve given a voice to a number of other people, not only bloggers who have true story to share. In the future I also hope to share some of my personal journey too.
Here are the rules for the Seven Awards:
1. Display the logo on your sidebar
2. Link back to the person who nominated you
3. State 7 things about yourself
4. Nominate 15 (or so) bloggers for this award
5. Notify the nominees of their nominations
