Genuine or Versatile Many of Us are Both

When it comes to awards I have been blessed many times.  When it comes to blogging awards I have also been blessed.

Linda Cassidy Lewis at has awarded me the Liebster Award..meaning loved or beloved

And how can I not love that?  Regardless of stats there are always a favorite few who are loyal in comments and sharing their own kind of wisdom.  When I get an award I always graciously pass it on to those loyal few who comment regularly.  There are so many more I regularly read and love and Lord knows there will be more..insatiable appetite I have..and I would like to share all of them with you..but then you could not possibly read them all without abandoning your own loyal following.

In addition there are a couple of new blogs I have been following with great pleasure written by twins Autumn and Gabrielle who passed on another award to me.  They can be found at These gals are the coolest twins ever so please visit and enjoy.

I have to apologize to others who have passed awards on to me.  I went through a period of totally being overwhelmed so know I missed someone.  (today I cleared out almost 4,000 emails from posts and bloggers that came in in the last month or so).  Do let me know so I can credit you.

I can’t possibly give you a list of things you don’t know about me…damn my transparency but I can give you a list of folk to follow in addition to the addys above:  (Many have already received awards and may want to pass. For the others I send you blessings and thank you for making my day that much brighter!)

Both awards are passed to:

  1. Chris, I don’t know how I could have missed this link you made! However, my RSS is really wonky. One thing I know for sure…it takes a dear, dear soul to honour those who have to work at one “dear”!! Many thanks.

  2. Awww Chris, how do you ALWAYS manage to make me feel so good? I’ve never had the Genuine Blogger Award either! ! !

    I hope you’re feeling better. I must go check out the GBA info.

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Oh my what a surprise and such an honor. I’m in awe of how often inspiration strikes you and you post. With my teaching schedule I can only muster two a week. Thank you for visiting my site and reading my ever sentimental pieces, but in the end they’re for the family book. So glad we crossed paths last July, yes, I remember when. Congratulations to you on the deserved recognition. Thank you for tying so many together. Hope you are doing better with the fibro.

  4. Thanks, Chris, I’m so honored. You know we receive so many of these awards, but I have NEVER received the Genuine Blogger Award before, so that’s cool! Thanks for thinking of me, my friend, and giving me a new first. I love it!

  5. Thank you so much for the awards and the mention. I love making new friends and will check out some of the other blogsites you mentioned. As they say- a friend of yours is a friend of mine. We already share Linda Cassidy Lewis as a friend.

  6. Chris – thank you so much. I haven’t received a Genuine Blogger Award – I love it. And now, because I don’t have enough blog posts to read (oh really?)I am going to look into those that you mention that I don’t already follow.

I love to hear your thoughts on this!
