May I have the envelope please...


Awards on the blog, to me, are a wonderful sense of achievement by your co-writers out there in this quickly expanding blog-o-sphere, that you have been noticed. I have recently been given this beautiful award by Steph over at Incurable Insomniac. She is a writer and composer and my age, which I find rather rare in this blog world, most everyone I have met is my daughter's age. But there are so many of us soon to be 60 woman, reaching that milestone in our lives, it is so grand that we have met in this virtual universe of blog, sharing our daily lives and interests...you have all become my new best friends.


As I find myself staying home more and more, married to my keyboard, it is a pleasure to call upon you for advise, for beauty, for solace and love...and of course the laughs! Although, I find it impossible to pass the awards on to such a few chosen souls, I again give it to all my blog friends. You are all so deeply appreciated in my small world...the Lost Continent of Iowa. Without you and your words, given freely and encouragingly, I would still be approaching 60 and single and living alone (not that I don't relish it), but, it's like having coffee with the girls every morning and I want to thank every one of you for the pleasure of your company...cheers!
Thanks Steph!

Congrats on your award.

Your acceptance speech was beautifully worded!

Who would have known that we would get so much out of the blogging world. It actually opened the world to me & let me get to know people who would have otherwise never come into my life. I always love reading your words -- I feel like we're kindred spirits. By the way, you're just a kid -- I had my 63rd this year. Congratulations! Jan

I've been blogging since 2002 and I've developed a 6th sense about new (to me) blogs I come across during my late night blog-hopping. As soon as I saw your blog I knew it was one I wanted to read every day.

Congrats!

Sharon, you put that very well. It's a lot like having coffee with friends or calling a friend on the phone.

Most of the people I've met blogging are over 50. I guess it is because not many younger people stay home and garden all the time;)

Sharon, I just wanted to say to you that you are a voice for many women; our hopes, our fears, joys and tears. You express your thoughts in profound and beautiful ways. It is a pleasure to read your blog. I check it everyday. Thankyou for sharing your life and emotions, and the beautiful photos!

Count me in the nearly 60 club, but it is good to be able to say that amazing milestone won't happen till next year thank goodness!

The blogosphere is like a life raft for me where I can practise a healthy mix of sanity and insanity as the whim takes me! And it's great to find wonderful friends who enjoy playing along! Of course, I count you Sharon as one of them!

Big congrats on your award! Certainly well-deserved!
