Cyranny (of Cyranny’s Cove) my lovely blog-buddy from the frozen north has created a blog award. And she gave it to ME! I am blather-smacked! (for those not speaking Suze, that means totally bum-fuzzled, embarrassed, excited, giddy and giggly all at the same time. and yes, it can be exhausting. Drink plenty of fluids, eat a cookie and go to bed early when it happens to you)
She even made a badge! She is simply incredible..the artwork is delightful, so polished and professional. She amazes me frankly. (or even Georgely if you don’t know Frank)
Now……I have finally completed my research into who the very first person nominated should be. I have read comments, compared them and determined that this award for making a blog better through commentary is………..(drum roll please)……….
Larry Paul Brown of Quest. Larry was one of the first people to ask me if I had lost my mind in a comment. I respect that, and I respect the fact that he recognized that my mind had indeed been temporarily misplaced. He even helped me find it! That’s the great guy Larry is…..he helps.
Larry, like me, is a friend of Bill and writes beautifully about the steps, thoughts and feelings that promote sobriety. He also, like most of us in recovery, has a warped sense of humor. I adore him. I can always count on him to make a snarky, pithy or absolutely sweet remark upon my ramblings. When I needed (okay I just wanted not needed) people to recommend my blog he gave me a wonderful quote to use……check out my home page for that quote.
