In this season of Thanksgiving I am grateful for many things, far too many to detail here! However my families… immediate, extended and work are just a few of the things for which I give thanks!
This year I have been blessed with a new family of sorts, people who give me a glimpse into their thoughts and their lives, who inspire and encourage and some who just give me a laugh when I need it. Some are thought-provoking while others force me to take a hard look at myself.
I have been a member of this “blogging community” for less than six months. In this time I have interacted with some wonderful people, been embraced, supported and motivated beyond what I would have ever imagined.
Last week, I received a nomination for The Versatile Blogger Award from a very kind lady in the UK for my autism blog God, autism and me (more on that later).
Today Clayton Paul at Clayton Paul Better Ways for Better Days nominated me for The Imagine Award. I am grateful that my venture into this world of words has not only given me the opportunity to try to inspire others, but to be inspired as well. And per my award criteria…
Five reasons I enjoy Clayton Paul Better Ways for Better Days
You never know what he’s going to post. The topic matter is varied yet always informative. He is in fact a very Versatile Blogger!
His blogs always have a positive slant toward them. I am often encouraged or inspired.
True to his motto, Clayton does indeed encourage the reader to implement “better ways for better days” through thought, deed or action.
The information on his blog always leaves me feeling better after reading his blog than before I begin.
Finally, he’s a very nice guy! The comments he leaves in the blogosphere are constructive. His comments build others up, not tear them down. And I love that!
My nominees for the Imagine Award are the following:
A View from My Summerhouse kindred spirit
Simply Life, living your best life one day at a time makes me smile
Youth of A Nation…bent not broke powerful blog about mental illness and more
On Her Way to Perfection also makes me smile (I like to smile)
Devotions by Christ Hendrix helps me keep things in perspective
Sometimes God gives us people who will push us up when we feel like falling and prod us along when we feel like stalling.
THANK YOU to my READERS and fellow writers for doing that and so much more. Yet another thing to be grateful for.
