My friend Eric, at Hunt4Truth.wordpress.com, kindly nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award on Wednesday. The funny thing is on Wednesday I wasn’t very inspiring. In fact, I was a mess!
Yet, Eric inspired me to get myself together and get it in gear! After a few words from him, I realized I was lacking a proper attitude. I promptly “found my mind” as my youngest child would say and was able to once again think rationally and move forward.
I often have no problem encouraging others yet my efforts to motivate myself don’t always come easy. Sometimes the encourager needs encouraging. Eric does this for me. He truly projects “love your neighbor as yourself,” as posted on his site.
In fact, one of my first “conversations” with Eric was earlier this year when I was ill and couldn’t write as regularly as I had before. He checked in with me to see if the ol’ girl was okay. He inspires me by proving kindness, thoughtfulness and consideration for others does still exist.
Eric writes on matters of the heart and mind. He challenges us to look inward at ourselves and how we interact with others. He motivates you to look outward into those things spiritual in nature. Eric prods you to check that ego and the selfish acts that often result because of it. I am truly inspired by his blog and am humbled and flattered that he nominated me. My goal is to be as inspiring to others as he has been to me.
That said, my nominees are for Very Inspiring Blogger Award are:
This Ability Of Mine (This young lady is simply awesome)
Some of these writers inspire with their words. A few inspire by the sheer beauty of their art. And a few have inspired me with their ability to overcome adversity with a good attitude, a grateful heart and a lesson learned. All of these blogs continually inspire me. And for this, I am very grateful.
I do realize that not everyone does “awards.” And that’s okay too. This post is to thank you for your time, talents and dedication to inspiring others just like me.
Thank you for such kind words. My obligation to my friends is to share inspiration when I am able. I know you realize this about God’s word too; that we are to be at our best and improve our acceptance and tolerance and love for one another. Thank you for sharing this award with your dear friends. I’m even loving this more because I don’t already know everyone in your list. This is an opportunity to see some new blogs. If you like them Lilka, they must be good. I am so happy that this came at a perfect time for you.
You flatter me! The one thing I love about these awards is it does give you the opportunity to learn about other blogs. I’ve actually found many wonderful blogs this way.
Again, your timing was perfect. Thanks so much for being there when I needed it. Our God is Awesome 🙂
