Very Inspiring Blogger Award

blogawardI’m humbled by and appreciative of Patricia Garcia for nominating my blog for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I have much to learn from Patricia as I write about the turning events in my life, both happy and sad.

My desire in writing is to examine my own life experiences and learn from them, to make me a more caring and accepting person. I hope my readers will take the time to examine their own journey through life to see what makes them a better, stronger, and a more compassionate person.  Ultimately we can accept ourselves as who we are.  Laugh and cry, for as you do, you will become a dedicated, passionate person with a zest for life!

Now the rules for this award are to post seven things about myself.  So, here goes.

  • I love dogs, especially German Shepherds as I have owned three. But when I rescued my kitten I learned how much I could grow to love a cat too.
  • I love music, and the type of music I have playing during the day will tell you what type of mood I’m in.
  • I have always loved to dance – modern, rock, or ballroom, or just plain funky with my granddaughters.  I hate to sit still.
  • I enjoy and need creativity in my life – whether cooking, working at some craft or writing.
  • I need to have people who I care about in my life too – either people I volunteer with or people I have met that I simply love to talk to or people I can help in some way or even playing “Grandma Monster” with my grandchildren.  I keep the Bogeyman away at night!  I cherish my family.
  • I also especially love my quiet-time.  There is nothing like a good book (all genres) to revitalize my soul or bring a smile to my face.
  • I dearly love being near the water, whether a dynamic ocean view or the quiet solitude of the bay. Then when I get the opportunity I walk the beach along the water’s edge looking for treasures.

A few of the blogs I enjoy reading include:

Susan Scott –

Patricia Garcia –

T.J. Banks –

Carol Child –

I hope you will go explore these blogs as they contain insightful, educational, inspiring, and fun material.

Thank you for entering my world and walking along with me.

    Oh Gwynn, I love your site and I enjoyed the stories so much, even more because we have communicated through emails. It makes reading them all the more personal. This is such a great experience for me. I have only recently been able to use high speed internet. Prior to that it was snail mail and I could forget trying to down load anything! It has opened a world to me I didn’t really know was out there. Thank you so much for sharing your site with me. Oh, and congrats on winning the Blogger Award, you are awsome.

      Hi Dianne, I have so much to learn about Blogging. I would love to be able to do more and I truly am a Techno-idiot!

      I don’t know whether anyone will learn from my stories, but to me they are so important. I have much to learn on a number of levels. However, having everyone in the group be SO supportive has helped me enormously. I am so delighted that you have joined our group!
