Thanks Writer's Reviews For The Thoughtful Blogger Award!

I’ve been awarded The Thoughtful Blogger Award, along with five other bloggers from Writers Reviews.com. The Thoughtful Blogger Award is one of five distinct awards in a series of awards created by Writers Reviews intuitive, creative, and most thoughtful blogger herself Christy Zutautas.

There is a specific description for each award in the series, listed here along with the award rules.

Writers Reviews has created for bloggers a way to honor the blogs we admire in a personable way on an individual basis. An ingenious idea, that frees us to celebrate each blogs unique contribution.

I'm thrilled to be among those recognized by such an outstanding web site, and honestly, I'm unable to catch my breath! It's taken me two days to locate the appropriate words to describe how happy it's made me. Actually, the fact that I was recognized by, and with, bloggers who have more experience blogging than me is amazing!

I'm literally at a loss for words, and I can't pinch myself any longer! Therefore, without any further gushy stuff, I would like to congratulate the following blogs Writers Reviews nominated along with my nomination, and then post the blogs I nominated. Congrats to;

Mariuca from Wishing On A falling Star

Roger from Oger The Caveman

Brown Baron from Brown Thoughts

Colleen from A Madison Mom

Mike from Ordinary Folk

Jos from NoDirectOn(not:NoDirection)

Aaron from Today Is The Day

Wendy eMoms at Home

Recipients of this award are asked to pick five blogs in any of the five categories, which are listed here along with the award rules.

I would like to give three Thoughtful Blogger Awards, and Two Creative Blogger Awards, that again, recipients can copy here along with a link to Writer's Reviews, so we can keep track of where these awards originated, along with the award rules, designs and descriptions for each one.

The Thoughtful Blogger Award:

Aussie Cynic- About Aussie Cynic? What can I say? Well, I will let him say it for himself, "There is not much to being Australian. We are the BEST, BRIGHTEST and CLEVEREST people on Earth. Why else would the rest of the world keep coming here?" I couldn't have said it better myself, except you left out funny, Aussie. Aussie found some fans for my children's story. He told his little girl, and she told him to tell me that she loves my story, so really this award is for her! Congrats, Aussie, and thanks for your continued support!

Sandee at Comedy Plus: Who is not only hilarious, she's warm and thoughtful in her comments, in addition to thinking of little ways to help other blogs. Hers is one of the blogs I thought of when I read the description for the Thoughtful Blogger Award.

Mad Goat Lady: Who takes the time to leave a thoughtful comment, with a "temperamental teenage son, an English husband busy turning into an aussie bloke" and "3 dogs, 3 cats, 3 goats and a cow" to keep her busy! She also leaves comments inquiring about my children's story, a quality I find endearing in grown ups! Thanks Mad Goat Lady, and congrats!

Creative Blogger Award:

Insanity Suits Me and Certifiable at Twisted Sisters: Whose creatively written posts have made me laugh, almost cry, and think, all at the same time! Their posts include their readers on their different life journeys, as well as point out different perspectives on other issues. Creativity runs in their family!

Bob at Bobbarama: Every time I stop by this site, I want to stay and read it all day! It is really that entertaining, not to mention well written. Stop by and visit and you'll quickly see for yourself. Congrats Bob, and thanks for delivering fun to the blogosphere!

Thanks again, Christy from Writers Reviews for enriching this blogs status, in addition to recognizing it's existence in the massive blog world. In addition to writing excellent reviews on blogs, web sites, movies, and products, you have written a wonderful series of awards! Thanks again, Writers Reviews!

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Written for Ann

Catch your dreams

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
