Oh, such a beautiful award to end with for awards on my site. How it lights up and shimmers.
It’s a great tribute to Don Charisma, when he was originally given this award, as a thank you, from Belinda (the idiot writer) when he helped fix her computer. Its glowing essence reflects love and the gift of giving.
I don’t think I’ve ever quite seen one like this and I’m deeply honored to receive it from Sherri Matthews at “A View from my Summerhouse”. It’s not only the beauty of the award but what it represents that gives it a whole new meaning of respect in making a difference and spreading light in our world.
Sherri exemplifies this with the stories she tells and how she opens her heart to the world. She makes it a little brighter wherever she lands in what she writes and the photos she shares and, for that, the world is a better place and more beautiful.
I don’t see many butterflies at 8,500’ but, when I do, it causes me to pause and take note of the splendor of their beauty and softness, as they gracefully go about their business. In just observing this, there’s a lot I can learn from them.
Like with others, there are guidelines for this award with 5 easy rules to follow if you accept. They are:
To Accept Award
1. Write an acceptance post making sure you link back to the blogger who awarded you and thank them.
Please DO NOT lump this award in with a batch of other awards.
2. Individually name and re-award a minimum of 1 up to a maximum of 9999999 bloggers. You also need to let them know either personally with a comment on their blog OR a pingback (I’d suggest their “About Page”).
3. Link back to Belinda’s blog at either:
4. Write a short paragraph entitled with either “How I’m Spreading Light” OR “How I’m A Positive Influence”.
5. Display Belinda’s lovely “Butterfly Light Award” badge on your blog.
(Here’s my short paragraph)
Spreading Light or Positive Influence
In sharing my thoughts on spreading light or making a positive influence, it’s my hope that the stories I tell will bring us together to discover how much we’re alike and not so different. The stories may take place in a different time or place but reflect the same human desire to love and connect. When that genuine connection is made, magic begins and a whole new world opens up to us through the eyes of another.
There are many connections I’ve made in the blogging community that have touched my heart and it couldn’t be more fitting than to share this last award with them. Though there are some no longer accepting awards on their sites, I still want to pay tribute for the light they’re spreading in the world and say, “Thank you”. It’s a far better world because of their writing and blogging.
Life can be tough and many of my fellow bloggers have poured their hearts out in joy and pain. I hope you’ll pay a visit and see what I’ve learned from them in trying to make sense of it all. So, with no further ado, (drum roll, please) may I present the following fellow bloggers for this beautiful Butterfly Light Award:

As this is my last acceptance post. I wanted to extend my deep gratitude to all those in the blogging community that stopped by and honored me with awards. I’ve loved it and they’ve made me feel as giddy as a little girl at Christmas. Your visits and comments are award enough. Thank You!
