Love My Friends

Recently, Cynthia of “Oasis Writing Link (OWL)” graciously honoured me with the Love My Friends award. According to Cynthia, this award “is bestowed onto blogs that are exceedingly charming.” Really now....me, charming! Well, not being one to look a gift horse in the mouth.....I'll take it. Thank you very kindly Cynthia, this is really appreciated. I don't recall how I found my way to OWL, but when I did, I had the hardest time staying on the site. For some reason or another, it kept booting me off and shutting down. However, I remained patient and eventually things worked themselves out and I haven't had any trouble since. And I am happy I have stuck around. Now if you like to think, this is the place to visit. Cynthia does not blog on a daily basis and therefore puts a lot of time, effort, thought and variety into all of her posts. Thus, captivatingly pulling you in, compelling you to think outside your safe zone and at an emotional level we generally don't often visit without some kind of encouragement. Cynthia has a magical way of weaving a combination of poetry, music and film into all of her posts, creatively emphasizing her own personal thoughts, ideas and true life experiences. Needless to say, I encourage all who drop by here today to visit the Oasis Writing Link and introduce yourself to Cynthia. You will all be glad you did. Thanks again Cynthia! It's nice to be thought of as a friend!
First, I would like to acknowledge that not all of my Blog Friends accept or post awards on their sites. And to me that is fair. However, it does not prevent me from mentioning them as people whom I choose to call friend and whose Blogs I enjoy immensely and am sure some of you would like as well. I also know that they, in return, accept the gesture in the spirit in which it was given.
Now the instructions for this award were to; “Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award.”
These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers, photographers poets, humourists and smart a**es. So, in no particular order, they are;

And, like Cynthia, I am adding an additional 2 selections. Though they don't do awards, I do want to say that they are friendly Bloggers. The fact that they are both Canadian is just fluke.

Cheers to you all and Happy Blogging!

I think Cynthia was one of the peeps that first came to visit from Musings. She was also my very first follower, and overseas 'friend'.She is a darling indeed, and so must you be, if she thinks you worthy of such a lovely award.
I happen to think you are pretty fantastic too, and a loyal and fun friend.xx♥

Congratulations Bogey! You deserve this award and so many more! In fact, by sheer coincidence, there may or may not be something for you over at my place!

Thank you SO much for the Friends award - this is one of my favorites, and I have long coveted it! I shall proudly post it!

Congratulations Bogey!

I think Cynthia is right and so was Natalie who first sent me over here, you have a definite charm and wit that we all enjoy very much. And I think your very clever too, i like all the golf references even though I don't know a thing about the sport, the best is the green background!

Thank you for thinking of me, I also don't post awards but am thrilled to get them (keeping them in a special folder) and always try to pass them on.

Have a great Wednesday!

Congrats and your welcome Nancy. Hope you enjoy your visits to the others as well.

MTB, you are so welcome for graciously not accepting awards.

Thanks for the warm sentiments Natalie.

Your welcome Amel and thank you for your kind comments.

You are so welcome Audrey. And thank you for thinking of me as well.

Thank you Lori Ann for the congratulations and for sticking around. I have so enjoyed your blog immensely.

James, I'm glad I was able to offer you something. Your kind words and thoughts are always appreciated here too! I will get to the award that you gave to me but will space them out a little. Surprisingly, they have been coming in rather quick succession.

You are so welcome Hillary. I didn,t think did awards but upon re-visiting your site, I was mistaken. Enjoy!

Thank you very much Rosaria. Those words of kindness were very much appreciated.

Thank you Queen, I've been kind of curious as to how you made your way here. I'm glad you stuck around though.

Thanks Shammickite. Nice to see you back.

Congrats on your award....you certainly deserve it because it is so evident of the kind of friend that you are.

And thank you for passing on the award! You are so kind and sincere with your words, my friend, and it really does touch my heart. One of these days, when I have a chance to stop for more then a moment, I will have to check out these blogs that I haven't already.
