This is Special...The Bella Sinclair Award

Most of you know I am not into awards as I blog because I love to share my day with my blogger friends. This award is special as it came from Annette, whose blog A Wisp of Creativity is lovely. She speaks from her heart with honesty and kindness. Annette and her mother Wanda have been with me since I first began blogging. Annette has been encouraging and loyal and it is such an honor to receive this award from her. I encourage you all to visit her at her blog, please tell her I said hello.

The Bella Sinclair was created by Ces in honor of her dear friend Bella to celebrate art, inspiration, friendship, sisterhood, sharing and caring". Thank you Annette this award is an inspiration to celebrate and honor our friendship as well as the friendships of those I truly value.

This for me is the most difficult as I am to choose those of you who represent best what this award represents. Each of the following have a special place in my heart for showing how much you care for others as well as me. Your words of inspiration and the extra time you take to help others as well as myself and of course I find your sense of humor and creativity beyond compare. I choose:

Stillness, Eileen, Marcy, Rebecca

I hope each of you accept this award with the love it is given.

Good Night everyone and God Bless.........:-) Hugs

Thank you SO VERY MUCH Bernie for having me considered worthy of this level of appreciation :D Sure made me very very Happy. I graciously and humbly accept this honor from you. God bless you and keep you very very Happy :)

Bernie said...

You are very welcome, you have been so kind with your research for me and always guiding me throughout my journey and even showing me how to add pink to my blog. You have been a wonderful friend and I am blessed my young friend to have you in my life.
.....:-) Hugs

Rebecca said...

Thank you for opening your arms wide to receive me into an awesome circle of friends. Since true friendship binds soul to soul, it is not necessary to actually SEE on another face to face..... To be included in celebration of "art, inspiration, friendship, sisterhood, sharing and caring" is truly an honor. Let us each remember that Jesus offers us all HIS friendship and He is the Friend who sticks closer than a brother (or sister)!

Good morning Bernie ... Congratulations, I know Annette admires you so much...I will be passing mine on later today too.

We're having a very gentle rain this morning...the kind that soaks in and does ecerything some good...the baby deer are in the field checking out one lone turkey standing verryyy still.

How was your get together? Hope you get a chance to catch up on your sleep and rest today.

Smile and take care Bernie.

Blessings each day said...

How very sweet of you, Bernie, thank you, and you do know that my biggest 'award' is being able to call you my friend???

Blessings and hugs and gratitude for you just being you,


Eileen said...

Seriously, Bernie, I have tears in my eyes.
And I feel so unworthy, as I just came back from Rebecca's beautiful post and told her I'm so unwilling to change in some ways and I say half-hearted prayers to change those ways.
Especially in the light of the others you are awarding, Bernie, this means so much to me, I am happy that I was able to give back to you a little something when I think of the peace and solace that you have brought to my life.
Thank you so much, Bernie.
All the best to you my friend,

Stillness Speaks said...

Hi again. I put up your award on my blog (on the left) but didn't pass it on. But I want you to know that I am really thankful to you for having me in your thoughts.

As far as the research is concerned, Bernie, this is the least I can do to help you. I hope our association continues for a long long time to come. I really appreciate your presence in my life :-)
