Renee Award - My Second Award and I am Humbled

All awards are special and some are greatly humbling to receive. I was honoured with another one this morning. My friend Anne has given me another award. Here is the link to Anne's blog, As you can see, I took what she wrote and added my own bits as I couldn't say it much better than she did even if I tried.

The Renee Award is relatively new and was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee. Here's the link to Bella's Blog and also to Ces' Renee is an incredible lady, who in the face of a frightening life battle is tackling each new day with great spirit and courage. Please check out the blogs of these three creative women. Since I faced the same life battle as Renee myself, eight years ago and have survived with my humour and creativity at least somewhat in tact, I appreciate the challenges and friends that are thrown in my path all the more.

Here is what Bella says of the award: "This is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds its way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns..."

Wow. This is a tough act to follow and I encourage you to read Tristan's post. Here's the link to Tristan's blog at Now, my job is to pass this on to eight fellow bloggers that make a difference in my life daily. There is no particular order in how I post these----everyone is on the same level for me. Friends, people who inspire me, reading I enjoy, folks who are working hard to make creativity a living breathing thing, folks who just are working hard with life. As Anne says "I salute you ALL!!!
