Sweet Awards

A lovely weaver of words honored me with the Spring Trust Award. This comes from a writer of beautiful poetry, Worlds of Words. Please go read what he has to say, you will walk away deep in thought. Trust is an extremely important value to me. It is not something I take lightly, so I will only be awarding this to ONE person.

As writers, our words are like newborns. We take words and we create life. We nurture them and hold on to them until they are ready to be released. And then we send them out into the world and hope they are accepted. We construct images and trigger emotions. These words generate vulnerability in us and approval validates us. The power of the word should never be underestimated. Because to a writer it is EVERYTHING. There is absolutely no one I trust more for an honest critique than Karal, http://theorangechair.org/. I also trust Karal explicitly as a friend and fellow writer. Karal is the recipient of the Spring Trust Award.

I picked up the Honest Scrap Award from Jingle. Jingle hosts the Thursday‘s Poets’ Rally where you will friend many wonderful poets. Jingle is amazing. She is very talented and one of the kindest souls I’ve had the honor of meeting through Bloggyland. Please pay her a visit.

    3. Suzicate, CONGRATS on all these much-deserved awards… and THANK YOU for thinking of me. I am thrilled!

      Love the 7 things. I’m with you on the whistling and afraid of the dark!

      I’m so excited to visit these blogs you recommend – what perfect timing for a lazy Saturday.

    4. Congrats on all your lovely awards! Did you find a trophy case yet to house them all?

      Woot!

      I have not done an awards post in forever…I am so impressed that you pass on and keep up. It’s awesome!

      Happy Saturday!

    5. Aw SuzeCate ~ thank you so much! What a great gift for the first day of spring! I treasure the Spring Trust Award as I do your friendship and am honored to have you as a friend and fellow blogging buddy. Congratulations on all of your awards ~ you deserve them!

    6. Congratulations, SuziCate, on your awards – all well-deserved!

      I love what you have to say here about writing: “As writers, our words are like newborns.” As the mom of an infant and a would-be writer, I can certainly relate!

      Enjoy your day!

    7. Congrats Suzicate,

      I am proud for you and will check out some of the blogs you posted as they have to be something special if you have befriended them.

    8. Listening to your dog snore! What is it that’s so comforting about that? I agree. Also that one sigh that comes out as they have reached their final resting after circling in the bed.

    9. Trust IS a beautiful thing — I feel somehow I can trust you too. Funny how you can know a soul after just a couple meetings.

      Anyway, not that you asked but…

      I suck at knitting and all that stuff.

      I have never really done beadwork — just with my daughter’s little kits.

      Motorcyles scare me a bit. One seems so vulnerable on them.

      I never thought I liked cats until we got a kitty for Kelly 3 years ago. I LOVE THAT CAT!! I love our 2 dogs too, but that cat is the light of my pet life. (Just don’t tell our dogs, okay?)

      Well, way TMI here on my part, must save some for “our honeymoon” 🙂
