Failure Is Not An Option…

Iloveyourblogaward

 

There are many different approaches to blogging. Some blogs tell stories, while others tell stories through pictures. There are journals of day to day life blogs, documentations of life’s hopes and struggles, and blogs of faith.  Sometimes I read a blog with sentiments so raw that I am reduced to tears. Then there are the goofy and funny blogs - the ones laced with humor. There are the times when I learn things I probably never would have known - and enjoy learning it. And sometimes, without even meaning to, a blogger will reveal their inner kindness, and tender heart.


My friend, Intenseguy's blog does all of the above. There are times that he makes me laugh and cry at the same time, and it isn't even until I'm commenting that I realize he also snuck a history lesson in his post somewhere. Earlier this week he featured me on his blog and gave me the "I Love Your Blog" award.

It is a great feeling to know a few simple words made a difference in a person's day - in this case Iggy's day.

Thank you for letting me know in such a meaningful way.
Once again, you have taught me a lesson. You've taught me that words of truth, no matter how simple, do make a difference. And you have taught me that to take a moment to leave a comment on the blogs I read, is worth every minute of my time.


I'd like to share this award with every blogger who takes the time to read my ramblings. Hopefully I occasionally impact you and your day - just as Iggy often does mine.

Oh, and the reason this post is titled Failure Is Not An Option is because while featuring and awarding me, he snuck in a history lesson – and a message to me to take good care of myself.  Thanks Iggy!

what a wonderful award he bestowed you! truly you are worthy of such an honor :)

Iggy's blog is a fantastic blog, and so is yours. It's a well deserved award, given to a great person by another great person. Two people who I consider to be great friends, and whose blogs I really enjoy reading. :)

Iggy is truly a special friend, and we are very fortunate to have him in our lives. His posts have touched so many people, and usually, he doesn't even realize just how much.

Have a great weekend, Deanna. *hugs*
