THE ENVELOPE PLEASE.....


OK: This is the Coveted: BLOGGER REFLECTION AWARD and INSTRUCTIONS:
Here are the rules for this one:


1. Copy this post (meaning the rules).

2. Reflect on five bloggers and write a least a paragraph about each one.

3. Make sure you link this post so others can read it and the rules.

4. Go leave your chosen bloggers a comment and let them know they’ve been given the award.

5. Put the award icon on your site.
Description/Definition:


"This award should make you reflect on five bloggers who have been an encouragement, a source of love, impacted you in some way, and have been a Godly example to you. Five Bloggers who when you reflect on them you get a sense of pride and joy… of knowing them and being blessed by them."


This could go to almost every Blog & Blogger I've read since most of them have been linked to or from the ones I've chosen. That's one great thing about our Community and the people represented here: ALL are SPECIAL!
I was truly blown away when MonkeyGirl passed this award on to me. A lot of you know at one time I wondered if I should even keep Blogging. Every One of the recipients had a hand to play early on with my sticktoitness and continuation of my blog.


I'm including the paragraph about each one collectively because they are that similar and special in what they did for me. (Cop-out- NOT!!) All gave me encouragement and honesty when I needed it. All gave me Godly wisdom and insight when I needed it. All were more than ready to share and went out of their way using both time and energy- two very precious resources to share/give to someone. Each one not only met-but exceeded in the requirements of the definition of this award. None of them would care if they received it and I mean that they are not looking for the recognition-Not that they don't appreciate it!


So here they are:


1. HAMMER: Need I say more? Thank you sir for your consistency and availability. Every Tool Box must contain a HAMMER!!! Thanks! Just the Name brings a Smile and a LOL! I hope it's genetic- because if your sense of humor is contagious- the World will die Laughing!


2. BabsRN: If you know this Georgia Peach at all you know why she is here! She sent me an entire Template (in html) of course, to help me out as soon as I started. Selfless time and energy and it was volunteered, not asked for. That's just the kind of person she is. Her patients are fortunate indeed, but woe be to anyone on the other end of this Southern Belle's softer side!!! ;-).
And an Excellent "Writer" to boot!


3. I EAT SNOWMAN POOP: Heck- the Name just about sums it up. This irreverent and highly relevant friend will keep you laughing and will help in any way possible. She will also come to the defense of a friend as witnessed in a recent post. I could not ask for; nor could anyone be more fortunate than to have this lady as a friend!!


4. ELLE BEE: Instantly drawn to this site and person. A Christian and Sister in Christ that has encouraged me like none other! Thanks "elle" for the unknown times you have inspired me to keep on keeping on! Keep doing what you do best and just "bee"- pun intended! Read her last post about another person in need and you will get a glimpse into the Spirit of this wonderful person.


5. AMBULANCE DRIVER: I could stop right here. Someone who's irreverent sense of humor will illicit Class 3 beverage alerts at any given moment. This same person took time to post a very personal plea for help on "HIS" Blog. I can never thank you enough for that effort and outreach Bro!! From the Heart. As a Paramedic (from ancient days) and a Newbie Blogger, I
can only hope to be close to his expertise in both one day.


To those of you not mentioned and you don't know who you are- (Ha ha ha- evil laugh)- These Five were First and Foremost in my Blogging Life- I have since met numerous others that I would have no trouble naming that meet these requirements. That's the neat thing about our Community- we ALL in certain special ways fill an area of need and collectively we are stronger and better for it!

Thank you MonkeyGirl- and may God continue to Bless our Blogging Community!!!
Love to you all,
John
