It's Great to Have Friends

In the middle of a very busy Sunday, I got a lovely surprise. My friend, Arlene at Grey Horse Matters, gave me an award. It was like a big hug coming across the blogosphere. I really needed it. It reminded me of all the wonderful people that I have met who take the time to read this blog. I also appreciate reading and learning from what all of you have to say. I know it takes some extra effort, but my life is richer for knowing so many talented, caring and interesting people from all over the world.

It’s hard to choose who else should get this award. Fortunately, I’ve seen it floating around recently to many of my blogging buddies. I’m going to send it along to the following people:

Julian, the Transylvanian Horseman, who made a gigantic leap to a new life in England and a big commitment with his partner, Danielle, to get married. Congratulations on moving forward with much courage.

LJB at Horsey Therapist, who leads me to new paths and supports me in my fumbling efforts to train Siete.

Esther/Ishtar in Niger, Africa, who loves her horses and travels an exotic path with quiet, consistent bravery.

Lynda Polk at Hoofbeats, who encourages our horse-loving community and offers good insights.

Nor’dzin at Ceffylau, who is eloquent and kind in her learning and caring for Dee and Red.

Jodi at Bloomingwriter, who taught me how to be a good blogger, loves her horse and donkey and just lost her beloved orange kitty over the rainbow bridge.

Ewa in Poland, for cheering up my day with her gorgeous garden and showing me parts of Warsaw, where my mother’s family once lived.

I imagine you all know what to do to pick up your award. Just click on it and take it away to your blogs to share with others who deserve to be celebrated.

Thank you for passing along this award. I do not know what to do with it, but as soon as I can, I will experiment! I am honored. I must say, I'm not terribly surprised to see you given an award for your blog. You are consistently insightful, considerate, and educational as you brighten our lives with what you share.

Thank you so much! It's things like this and all my blogging friends that make it all worthwhile (blogging, that is!) If you hadn't already won it, I'd give this award to you.
