Growing Self Blogger Award

Roda so graciously nominated me for this wonderful award and I can not thank her enough.  She is an amazing person.  Thank you so very, very much for your kind words, heart and spirit.

What is The Growing Self Blogger Award:


“The Growing Self Blogger Award has been created to acknowledge and celebrate amazing individuals, in the blogging community, who are persevering through life’s challenges not only to GROW as individuals,  but to reach out and help others GROW as well.” ~Roda

How Does It Work:

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog
  • List the rules
  • Thank the individual that nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Describe the award and mention the creator: Roda  –
  • Nominate up to 5 blogs.  Remember, the purpose of this award is to specifically celebrate those individuals that have made a difference in your life or the lives of others.
  • Give at least 1 reason why you nominated each individual.
  • Notify your nominees of the award

*I understand that not everyone chooses to be a part of the award nomination process. By nominating the following blogs, I am able to show thanks and appreciation for the joy, knowledge and laughter these individuals have brought to my life. If you choose to take part, that is fantastic! If not, no worries! Just keep writing and changing lives!


Your Gifts to me:

Maine Paper Pusher – Linda, you truly are my soul sister.  I feel that if I ever needed someone to back me up or be there for me in any situation, I can count on you always.  I knew from the very second we could lovingly “badger” each other, I had made a friend for life.  You are such a joy and inspiration to me and everyone that knows you.  You have touched so many hearts with your humor, honesty and bravery.  I can only say three words that sum up how I feel about you – I LOVE YOU.

The Broke Girls Guide to Better Living – Mandy, I have reconnected with the younger side of me through you.  Sometimes I feel like I’m reliving a wonderful part of my life through your posts and comments.  Chatting with you always make me smile and fill my heart with a “sense of pride”.  You bring so much truth, honesty and knowledge to the blogging world.  I am beyond happy to have met you and now call you my friend.  I send you much love, happiness and peace – which is what you always give of yourself.

Super Wife and Mummy Maria, I can always count on you for an upbeat, positive, “happy song feeling” comment or post.  You make knowing and becoming your friend such a joy and delight.  I would so love to meet you one day! It would be pure madness of gleeful fun. Thank you for your tremendous bravery in sharing some very intimate details of your life and what has made you the most wonderful, loving, kind, fabulous person you are today-you are encouragement to us all.

Rhapsody Boheme, Rhapsody, I know that we have a connected spirit and our paths were meant to cross.  I feel such an inner peace whenever I look a posted photograph or while reading your  posted words.  Your love of life is so overwhelmingly abundant that it makes everyone’s heart sing with complete peacefulness.  Thank you for all your words of encouragement, your heartfelt prayers and thoughts you have sent.

I love you all and hope the best for each and every one of you that “follows” me or passes by my way.

Have a wonderful day and great weekend!

  1. Oh, my gosh Robin! You are so sweet. Thank you so much for nominating me, but bigger thanks still for all the wonderful things you said. Oh my gosh, when I think of the times you’ve called me Penny and I’ve taunted you about Labor Day decorations. We have our own jokes and understand each other perfectly. I don’t know how it happened the instant we “met” but it did! Thank you for being you. Love you oodles! ❤️💕❤️💕❤️

  3. There are no words to properly thank you for all of the wonderful things you have said! I so enjoy our chats and all of your posts. You make everyone feel as if they are a welcome guest at your home, and it is so refreshing to ‘meet’ someone just as in love with life as yourself. I am not sure if I will follow up with a post of my own, as you and Maria are two of my ‘must’ nominates, and you have expressed it all so much better than I ever could 🙂 I am happy to call you a friend as well, and hope that I can only return the love, happiness and peace I have found here ❤
