When I was a little girl, I loved watching all those beauty contests: Miss America, Miss Universe, Miss World. I loved seeing these glamourous women (they were all glamourous in the 60s) dressed up in their evening gowns. Hearing the strains of "There she is, Miss America" made me dream of one day being a winner. Not necessarily of a beauty contest. Just a winner. Now I'm beginning to sound like a loser, and that is not what I am. But I've never been a winner either. Or not very often.
So when I read other people's blogs about all these awards bestowed upon them by their fellow bloggers, I think "Oh yes, that's very nice. Yes, that blogger definitely deserves that."
But a wee bit of me thinks, "Well, that's another award I haven't won."
I know, LOSER for even thinking about it. But at least I'm honest.
But today I visited annie's blog, and much to my surprise, I found I'm a winner. Annie, bless her heart, has bestowed the Nice Matters Award upon me. Thanks so much, annie. I don't know why it looks so wonky on my page. If anyone out there knows and can tell me how to fix it, please do.
To pass it along, I nominate, in no particular order (the envelope please) (drum roll) Lady Macleod, Chantay, DJ, Crystal Jigsaw, Pixie, Kelly, and Kaycie.(Wild applause). You're all fantastic, and I'm so glad I've been able to meet you through this blog. Just reading what you have to say brightens my day.
If you don't know how to get the award on your blog, DON'T ASK ME. I was lucky to get it on mine at all.
