"Make My Day" Award
I am very honored to receive the Make My Day Award from Dina of Jerusalem Hills Daily Photo. I am copying the text of rules that Dina wrote.
1) Award and link to 5 blogs that make you think and/or make your day.
2) Acknowledge the post of the award giver: Reader Wil
3) Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news!
Now the part I find hard... I could give this to many. All the blogs I visit make my day or I would not keep going back for more, but I'm told I can only pick 5.
The first person I would choose is the person who sent this award to me. Dina encouraged me to do a blog, taught me the basics and made sure to send me positive reinforcement every time I posted something. It was hard enough to choose who to tag. However I'll do my best and hope that I'm not "awarding" people who have already been awarded or tagged or medaled or whatever. You all make my day every time I hear from you.
So here's my FIVE.
Jean writes Molly's Folks Down Under from Maine. I loved her stories of her trip to Australia/New Zealand and having pavlova. I remember our trip there as well, and it brought back great memories. I laughed out loud when I read her story about her dog, Molly's reluctance to take her medicine. Jean keeps me going with her encouraging comments and I love checking in to see what else she has written.
The Max Files is written by Max-E from South Africa. He just did a beautiful post about the hard working women of Africa. I loved reading about his fitness regimen and it has motivated me to get on the move.
Rambling Woods--The Road Less Traveled is written by Michelle from western New York. Her blog is one of the first that I visited and I enjoyed greatly learning about the birds and wildlife in her area. Her knowledge of birdlife is incredible. Reading her blog makes me feel like I'm walking in her woods with her.
Tranquility Cove is written by Chrisss in Vancouver. I've always wanted to go to Vancouver. Her blog full of gorgeous nature photos, described with humor and interest draws me to her site.
Heimdal is written by Marie who is from Norway. I used to have a penpal from Norway when I was a teenager and I love seeing Marie's beautiful photos of her country. The flowers and scenery are just amazing.
