When Sandra Bullock won her Academy Award for The Blind Side, she gave a speech that was thoughtful, moving, and humble. She radiated grace and everyone was thrilled that America’s sweetheart had finally won the accolades she deserved. I am not quite as graceful when it comes to recognition. My inner self breaks out into a happy dance and shouts, “I won! I won! I won!” So when I received my second award in three weeks, I just about embarrassed myself at work when I squealed with delight. Thankfully, no one was around to witness it.
As many of my darling readers know, this is the first blog that I have ever felt gave me any kind of purpose and I have been so encouraged by the comments I have received and inspired by the blogs I follow. A writer for life, I rarely share my work with people, but through WordPress, I have found that I should have been doing this a long, long time ago. I love knowing that my words have reached dozens of countries around the world. Simply put, I can’t stop now!
Today I received some fantastic news that has me grinning like a Cheshire Cat. I have been awarded my first blogging honor by the fabulous folks at Mother Sugar.
