Little Sane Moments Of Time

I have doubts about my ability to hold it together often during the day. I am dealing well with my grief, but not my frustration and pain at having to watch my children suffer. I cannot imagine the depths of their feelings, except to guage the depth of my feelings at watching them. So I try to carry on.

Today, I am going to concentrate on the great depth of love, respect, caring and commradery to be found in this community we call the blogosphere. You and you and you (you all know who you are) have touched me and uplifted me in ways I cannot explain. Your comments, thoughts, perspectives, suggestions, prayers and blessings have been a God send. Additionally, a number of you have gifted me with awards of various kinds and for that I am also grateful. Now, on to the awards.

Decades A long while ago Maggie at Maggie’s Mind gifted me with the Arte y Pico Award. We had just recently discovered each other and I was touched by her noticing me, since she is such a great writer. Since then she has been a wealth of support and unconditional  love and for that and the award I am grateful. Thanks Maggie.

Next, Chuck over at Foster Me Up, gave away the Brillante Weblog and Super Commenter awards. This lovely, kind woman manages to come to my site even when she is ‘offline’ to leave hopeful, funny and kinds words. Her gift of friendship is what I am most grateful for and why I truly appreciated the next award she sent my way, the Perfect Blend of Friendship. Thanks Rhonda.

The new and rewarding friendships I have made here in the Den are something I never expected, but now I do not know how I could live without them. I have bonded with you, found common ground, shared ideas and support and generally just become dependent upon all of you. My dear and very supportive friend Penelope Ann at Cafe At The END of the Universe gifted me with the Blogging Friends Forever award and I am touched. I believe that we will remain friends for a good long time, blogs or not. Thanks Sassy One!

Another (new to me) friend is Lee at Tarheel Ramblings. He is such an intelligent gentleman, with an exceptional ability to put into words his thoughts and he takes THE most beautiful pictures. He says of the Million Dollar Friend Award: “A million dollar friend to me is someone who takes the time to get to know you on more than a superficial level. It is someone who is willing to put for the effort it takes to be a friend with no thought of what they’re going to get out of it.” Thanks Lee.

There is no way I could explain better what I have been trying to say in this entire post, than what he said there. Each of you have touched me, improved me, assisted me and the truth is I adore each and every one of you. So now I will take the terribly lazy easy a moment to bequeath upon each of you, who have been here through the good and bad times, all of these awards. Because, damnit, you deserve them. You really, really do.

Wordless Wednesday ~ Happy #1 Birthday Butterball


  1. Aw, you are sweet. My heart goes out to you as you said dealing with your own grief is one thing, but watching those you care about grief is a whole different kind of pain. I can only kind of imagine your situation, but Ouch! I am glad that our bloggy paths crossed, and you all remain in my thoughts.

  2. You are the one who deserves all of these awards. I’m so happy that we “met” out here, all because of a roller coaster game! lol! (which I still love playing!) I can not imagine the pain your children and family are going through. I just hope each day you find more and more things that make you smile. (((hugs)))

  3. Thank you for the prayer! I’m keeping you in my prayers as well!

    I also really like the look of your blog!

  4. Dang, you are something, girl!

  5. You deserve everything Vix.


  6. Very well deserved awards, Vix. Brava!

  7. People who don’t blog themselves sometimes criticize what we call the blogosphere. Little do they know… Time and time again my blogfriends have supported me in good and bad times. I’m glad you feel the same way. You deserve every one of those awards!

  8. Oh wow! I can’t think of another person on the web right now who deserves these more than you! Congrats!

  9. Congrats to you! 🙂

  10. Hi Sweetie. How are you hanging in? How os your DIL physically? I don’t understand God but I have to believe I’ll see Bren again. Huge Hugs.

  11. I haven’t spent much time in the blogging world lately and was spending some time here this morning going through my links. So, first of all, congratulations on your new(?) domain!

    I’m not sure what’s been going on with you, but I hope things look better soon.

  12. Congratulations on all the well-deserved awards … and I’m delighted at how ‘blogging friends’ can lift your spirits in challenging times. You’re in my prayers …
    Hugs and blessings,

  13. Check my blog, I left a little something for you :O)

  14. Oh gosh. I seriously have tears in my eyes. I’m glad I took a break from my hectic life to come by and see this. It’s so nice to see you getting them (’cause dammit, you deserve them too!) but to see you give them makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And just so you know, I feel the same about you. Enjoy your day and the upcoming week — I will be traveling and may not be able to stop in. *huggies ~n lovies* and thank you.
