Sarah has graced my blog with yet another award!
This award was developed by Tessa in honor of Dr Maithri Goonetilleke's birthday. Tessa was inspired by the way Dr Goonetileke reaches out to others and, with his humanity as her guide, she created this award "to acknowledge the depth and breadth of the warm open-heartedness from bloggers all over the world who reach out and touch their readers with their words." Tessa goes on to quote Dr Goonetilleke: "It has been my experience that whenever one human being reaches out to another in compassion, a bridge is built. A bridge which leads out of despair, into the light of hope and the possibility that tomorrow will hold a few less tears than yesterday."
To me those words by Dr. Goonetilleke is what a friend is. Someone who cares about your journey here on earth. I am honored Sarah thinks so much of me that she would pass this award on to me. I hope I inspire people and above all I hope I display compassion and just a little light to help someone find their way to all they can be. We are all gifted and talented, we just have to find our own gift and then share it with the world. Having friends a long the way that help you on your journey is a blessing of this wonderful Universe we live and love in! Thank you Sarah, I am honored!!
This Award is Extra Special to me because it is created by Sarah and given to me by Sarah! (I'm starting to think Sarah is my greatest fan!) Sarah this award I graciously accept. It shows the talent you possess that is deep inside you just bursting at the seams to come out! Your imagination is simply amazing and I have watched Ron's talent over the years and have every piece of paper, little scrap he scribbled on. His talent has developed over many years but the one thing that always stood out to me about his work was his wonderful imagination and his attention to every little detail. That is what I see in your art as well! Keep drawing, keep drawing, for you have an endless reservoir of talent waiting for you to discover and share with all of us!
Sarah's description of what this award means: "The Mental Duck to Mental Swan Award is given to two amazing groups of bloggers;
1. To Bloggers who encourage and nurture others bloggers to explore and grow in their creative, spiritual or mental lives.
