The Award Goes To...

At this time of thanks, I want to take a minute to recognize a couple women who deserve to have their wonderful blogs read... and read by lots! Of course, if you ask them, they'd both probably say awards aren't important to them ~ they just simply want to write. But they're human, which means they instinctively like to be liked, so... too bad girls... I'm giving you an award!!

I stumbled on Midnight Whisperer when I first started blogging, and instantly got hooked! Her writing is deep, sometimes dark, but always enlightening. It's incredibly emotional, reaching the core of her readers. She has a way of telling you everything about what's she's living through, but leaves you wondering and asking questions ~ not only about her, but also about yourself. She's a very talented writer, and you'll be mezmorized by what you read. Don't waste another second... go now... now, I say!

I also want to acknowledge Melody at This Is Me. I swear she HAS to be my twin, lost at birth, because she has a knack for talking about what I was just thinking. Everytime I read her posts, I wish I would've come up with such brilliance. I routinely tell her I was just going to write on that subject, but thank goodness I didn't, as I'd never be able to explain it better. She's also an excellent writer, making her words come to life, allowing her readers to "feel" her life as she does~ hence the title, This Is Me. She's incredible at explaining how beneficial self awareness can be, and the next level that can be attained. Go now... now!

I love these two wonderful blogs, and know you will too. Thank you both for always making me think, question, and read over and over!

Holy Crap! An Award? Seriously?

Hold on, gonna check and make sure it said 'M-i-d-n-i-g-h-t W-h-i-s-p-e-r-e-r'. How silly I would feel if you were referring to some other quasi-normal girl...


Yep... It says "me".

Wow, I was going to try and come up with some tactful poetic response... Telling you how honored I am and how thoughtful you are... But you know me, Dayne - tact is not my strong suit. So I am just going to say

Thank you.

You were my first follower and will always have a special place in my quasi-normal world and my heart. And will always be "my one who understands".

Dayne, you have now shown me that there really are some good writers out there, and not someone who just writes the same old drivel that I write.
For some time now, I have been thinking about packing this in and just become a reader instead of a writer, because I'll never become that. I think that you have just made up my mind for me, and I'll give this a rest until I give my blog a long over due over-haul and do some thinking about where I need to go next. I'm as bored as the next person at my pathetic attempts of writing, so I'm going to take a bit of a long needed break. I've been thinking about this for some time now, and right now, I have other things that I must be doing.
Take care.

Coach, you always make wonderful choices, and these two are a perfect example.
btw, found this quote for you.

I'm smiling about your friend Melody. I met a woman online about 6 years ago. We swore for the longest time we were soul sisters. We had such parallel lives. What was ironic, it was our idiosynchrocies that were beyond amazing, so similar.
