Lovely Blog Award.

I have been most honoured to have a, 'Lovely Blog Award', bestowed upon me. It has come to my attention that I have received this award twice. So I must humbly apologise to that wonderful blogger, 'Julie Phillips', whose very informative and supportive blog can be found at the following address: Thank you Julie, it was really great for me that your daughter pulled my name out of a bag. Your posting regarding my blog was thoughtful and most encouraging. Wishing you much success in your ongoing writing endeavours. Happy writing and thanks again.
I would also like to thank Suzanne Jones. Suzanne does a terrific blog that is inspirational, informative, thought-provoking, humorous and conveys a transparency I much admire. Continued positive writing Suzanne and thank you again. Suzanne's lovely blog can be discovered at the following address:
Now I shall duly pass this, Lovely Blog Award, on. This is certainly a most difficult decision. I have had the great privilege of reading and interacting with many fine bloggers. They have made me think, stirred my imagination and made me realise I'm part of a very special community. However, after much deliberation, I have decided to pass this award on to a very positive and inspirational new writer. Who, despite what could be perceived as overwhelming situations; continues to be resilient and remains positive in the face of adversity. So, to not only a lovely blogger, but a dear friend; I pass this award to you. My friend Heather's blog can be found at the following address:

Below are the rules that relate to this award. I thank you for your time. Happy writing to you all. Kind wishes, Gary.

1) Accept the award, and post a link back to the awarding person.

2) Pass the award on.

3) Notify the award winner.


  1. I hadn't heard of Heather's blog before today so I have duly begun to follow it. And I'm glad that you have been awarded the lovely blog award twice - truly deserved.

    Julie xx

  2. Hi Julie,
    My friend Heather does a blog that I know is profound therapy for her. I believe the strength, courage, resilience and positivity that shines through her postings will be a great source of comfort to others.
    Thank you again for giving me one of those 'Lovely Blog Awards'. I am deeply touched.
    I wish you much success in your writing quests, Julie.
    With respect, Gary

  3. Dear Gary,
    You thoroughly deserve this "lovely blog" award. Your writing is not only therapuetic and cathartic for youreslf, but surely inspires others, both to write and challenge their own "inner critics".
    Well done, friend. Where's mine, though?!!
    Yours with Very Best Wishes,

  4. Awe thanks Suzanne. It was very nice of you and Julie P. to have forwarded me this award. You were a most worthy winner of the 'Lovely BLog Award'.
    Happy writing, Gary x

  5. Dear David,
    I hope that my blogs convey positive interaction and are an inspiration to those who would like to use writing as a positive, therapeutic and a cathartic resource.
    The tough thing with these awards is that it creates a dilemma. Thus I thought it fitting to forward this award to a dear friend of mine who has only been writing her excellent blog for only a short time.
    David, I know you are only kidding. I hope my promotion of your blog via a various posting and a direct link to your site plus bringing awareness of your blog through my Zimbio 'Wikizine' has helped bring further awareness of your thought-provoking blog.
    Kind wishes, your friend, Gary

  6. Congratulations Gary! Well deserved. ~And since you got two, you can pass a second one on...

    Keep creating a lovely blog for many to visit; such a warm condusive atmosphere.

    Respfully yours,

  7. Hi Dixie,
    Thank you for your very nice compliment. I suppose I could pass on another award. It is so difficult whom to choose.
    Congratulations on your 'Lovely Blog Award'. Well deserved, Dixie.
    With respect, Gary x

I do try to comment back to each commenter individually. However, I might have to shorten my replies or give a group thank you. That way, I can spend more time commenting on your blogs. Thank you and peace, my friend.
