No, this is not an announcement of a win. Voting for the Sheenazing Award
won't close for a few hours yet, and anyway - this new kid on the blogk definitely doesn't consider herself an actual contender. After all, there sits little breadbox letters among the ranks of the biggie-blogs like... well, you know. THOSE.
Which is why I consider the nomination itself a major win. I feel like a
blogstruck extra finding herself on the set of a movie starring Meryl Streep.
It's enough just to gaze open-mouthed at the
Sheenazing work being done in one's presence. It's also enough to say to whoever nominated this blog: thank you.
Sometimes a blogger wonders if she's composing (or in my case, often quoting) anything that truly touches anyone "out there." The person who nominated this blog... my new BFF... probably knows this, because you're likely to be a blogger yourself. You know it's nice to, every now and then, get an "attagirl" to help you keep on going.
Thank you to everyone who reads, everyone who comments, everyone who subscribes, everyone who nudges me toward the keyboard.
Because you're here, I'm encouraged to live chunks of my days steeped in:
2) Writings of saints
3) Magnificent artwork
4) Prayer (I pray every time I look for a match up of picture and post; yes, every time)
5) You, my blog friends
6) And sharing in The Sheenazing Awards! I hope to visit, in time, every single nominee. What a treasure trove of wisdom and inspiration and fun!
I look forward to congratulating the winners in each category. As for me, I see six things I've listed above and know for certain:
I have won a major award.
And I like the way you live chunks of your days, Nancy! I hope you continue to do so for a long, long time!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Mary! I like living those chunks too. What a profound blessing.Delete
Thank you, Patty :)!Delete
We certainly are inspired here and love to visit. What makes you think you had only one person nominate you? I'm sure there was more than one.ReplyDelete
Kathleen, I have no idea how the nomination process works for this... so I don't know even "how to think" about it! I love knowing I might have more than one new BFFs :) :) !!!!Delete
It shouldn't really matter but we do need some encouragement every now and then so it means a lot to be nominated for a Sheenazing Award. I know many, many people love your blog, Nancy, so you will have to stay close to that keyboard. We are depending on you! You are still my tip for inspiring blogger of the year.
Sue, THANK YOU!!Delete
Nancy, put up another shelf in your trophy case...you have an award waiting for you at my blog. I just had to include you because you simply deserve it! You are an awesome blogger! I do hope you win the big award you wrote about above. Can we vote more than once? xoxoReplyDelete
Why, thanks Patricia! Blush blush blush. But really - thanks.Delete
