I was so very surprised late yesterday to receive the very beautiful Butterfly Light Award from my good friend McGuffy at http://mcguffysreader.blogspot.com/. McGuffy is a very talented lady who writes poetry and short stories, works very hard advocating for animals, occasionally does book reviews in her blog. She Spreads the light every day. o over and check out her blog. She always makes us happy when we visit. Thank you McGuffy for this prestigious award. You are a tough act to follow with your flair for writing. I hope one day we can meet in person.
Background: This award was given to Don Charisma by Belinda of Idiot Writing. She created the award as appreciation to him for his help in repairing her computer. He has asked that recipients of the award always link back to Belinda's for creating such a special award, as we continue to spread the light.
The conditions of accepting the Butterfly Light award are as follows:
1. Write an acceptance post making sure you link back to the blogger who awarded you and thank them. You may not add this award to a post with other awards. (Did this in the opening paragraph.)
2. Individually name and re-award a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 9,999,999 bloggers. You must let them know either personally with a comment on their blog or a "pingback".
Now here are the bloggers I am nominating for the Butterfly Light Award. I have selected them for reasons listed next to their name.
** Nerissa at http://www.nerissaslife.com/ for his adventuresome spirit and common sense. Nerissa's human also does a lot of work with rescuing animals. Nerissa uses his blog for educational purposes on various subjects, while poking fun at his humans.
** Cathy Keisha's blog at http://www.stunningkeisha.com/ always has humor in it. We leave her blog with a smile or laugh. Her human TW also does a lot of work for the rescue that CK was adopted from.
Both of these bloggers light up the world for so many of us in the blogosphere.
3. Link back to Belinda at her blog Idiot Writing or her Profile Page , for creating this unique and special award.
4. Write a short paragraph entitled: How I'm spreading Light" or "How I'm a Positive Influence."
Now I'm supposed to "toot my own horn" on how I'm spreading the light. This does not come easy for anyone in this house as we were taught from little on not to brag! But here goes pals:
Due to the fact that I had to have all my teeth pulled due to a bad case of Stomatitis, M and I like to educate other pals on the importance a vet checking your teeth once a year and following whatever directions the vet may give you. If left untreated, Stomatitis can lead to many other health issues. So we like to spread the word on this so that no pal loses his/her life due to Stomatitis. I have a tab at the top of my blog titled "My Toothie Story," which goes into detail all about my experience. M also encourages other humans to call her if they have any questions or need moral support. This reminds me that I need to do another blog post on the subject as it has been awhile since my last post about Stomatitis.
Thanks again McGuffy - we love you friend, and are so honored by this award.
