passin' awards around

barb won my heart over when she stopped by and left a comment on  my post
about my buddy, sue, and not only offered to keep sue in her thoughts,
but also dedicated two photos to her.

how kind is that?
well, her kindness didn't end there......
she just went ahead and awarded me with an award for 'those who in the blogs
make today and the now importnat.'


Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered -
Savoring the experience of quality time.



wow. kinda awesome.
thank you so much, barb.

so, okay, when you win this award, you're sposed to make an acceptance speech.

here's mine -

i say i want to live in the moment....but i think a lot of times i'm too darn scared to.
or i'm okay with the moment as long as i can have a mask over my face, filters over my
eyes and judgments in my head.

and yeah, i know.
that doesn't really work, does it?

i do want to drop those things and i do want to see clearly and live fully -
which i think is living in the moment.

so for me, this is another nudge -
go for it, terri.
keep on trying.
and grab those moments where you actually do this and gather them together
and make more and more of them.
and share them -
because it's our stories that help each other grow.
and it's our stories that  remind each other that the moments are all we really have.

thank you, barb.

so now!
i get to pass the award on!

I meant to comment yesterday and got sidetracked writing my acceptance speech! Thank you for thinking of me. I, on the other hand, do know that many bloggers. It's true I'm a chain-letter stopper. But I'll do my best to be worthy of this award - or better yet, your friendship.
