Can't outgive a giver



Great gifts can catch one unawares.

I was given this award by Melanie at Tea Leaves and urged to pass it on. First let me tell you that Melanie is a fearless knitter, a librarian so she loves to read, and drinks tea with abandon but she raises the bar for me because she thinks and speaks and cares about the world around her. Visiting one or the other of her two blogs Tea Reads and Tea Leaves makes me happy and better for the visit. So I'm passing this on to some more bloggers who light up cyber space:

Cat at Shabby~Chic Cat's Gardening 44great photographer, Dallas Cowboy's fan and gardener in Virginia

JenLemon 44who shares her 'Journal' with inspiration, peace and photos to savor. . .plus she offered the Be Brave Project which has helped me turn over a new leaf

Tammy 44 who has a Queen-Size Funny Bone, a lovely fellow Italian, brave, funny and dog lover

Chris 44whose writing is deep and wonderful, and who is no idiot

Beatriz 44a talented expat living in Italy who shares her Suitcase Contents, the loves in her life, art, cooking and the immigrant experience

Happy to share this gift with you because you make my day!

i'm so honored! but i can't take credit for the Be Brave Project (which i think is brilliant)--that would be the dear girl at diary of a self-portrait. but i did do a ritual for letting go of fear involving leaves that might have helped you! :)

I can't even begin to tell you what this means to me. Thank you so much! This high praise coming from someone I admire speaks volumes to me. I've been feeling a bit blue this week – reading, writing, children, husband, job, self – it's hard sometime to decide who wins… You have affirmed for me that the journey is worth the effort.
