Sojourner's Place

share the love  

Posted by SjP in , , , ,

It's been slow blogging over here at Sojourner's Place for the last couple of weeks. With the exception of the weekly memes, I really haven't had much time for writing posts that have been provocative enough for even me to read. But, today, I think I got back into the blog-swing of things and resumed writing and visiting a few of my favorite and a couple of new blogs.

As always, I stopped by Regina's Family Seasons to read her Tuesday Guest Post and to thank her for dropping by SjP's for Wordless Wednesday. She's been busy moving so I was glad to see that she was now finding some time to inspire. In scrolling through, I saw her post entitled "Share the Love". Regina received this much deserved award from a dear friend of hers. And in passing it on, she humbled Sojourner's Place as one of the recipients.

The "Sharing The Love "Award, was created by Blogger Crystal at "Memoirs Of A Mommy" blog, in honor of donor who saved her one month old's life a year ago. Cyrstal's son Noah celebrated his first birthday this week thanks to someone you final gift was the gift of life.

In Crystal's own words, here are the rules of the Share the Love Award:

“Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog.

**All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipient to do the same**

As you may have recently seen on my side bar, I have finally created a custom blog award!! I have wanted to do this for a long time but never came up with something that “fit”. I didn’t want just anything. It had
to be something that meant something to me. And what could mean more than Sharing the Love by giving you pieces of my heart??

So I created this award in Honor Of The Donor That Saved Noah’s Life. I share this award with those of you whose love and friendship have enriched my life and made my world a better place.I hope by passing this award around the blogging world we can all help raise awareness of the need for Organ Donation.”

Much obliged, Regina! Very much obliged. I dedicate this Share the Love Award to the memory of a very special childhood friend who was taken from our midst a few years ago. A loving and gentle soul, my friend had one of the biggest and giving hearts of anyone I have ever known. So giving was her heart, her last and final gift was the gift of life. She was an organ donor.

So in memory of my friend, I am sharing the love with:

There are so many more of you who have inspired and shared your love with me - and many of you also received this award from Regina. And to all of you, I say Much Obliged! Very Much Obliged!

Keep up the good work SJP, I really like what you're doing here.

Also, if you just need some content when you don't have time to write, you're welcome to crib a post from me if it suits you, as long as you link back :)

Ann - much obliged for your very kind words. When I started blogging, yours was one of the first blogs I came upon. It impressed me greatly and have only recently gotten up the "courage" to leave comments on a blog that influenced me so much. So,you see yours is a blog that is very near and dear to me...been watching and learning from you since January!

Yobachi, your kind words mean so much. You help me keep going. I know that I can alway guage how I'm doing by what you say here. So, offering one or two of your masterpieces to appear @ SjP's...well what can I say? Much obliged and will do!

@ John, much obliged for visiting SjP's and for commenting on this post. Please, don't be a stranger.

Unfortunately, however, your most recent comment was removed as it is an advertisement of sorts. In the future if you wish to advertise here please contact me via email to discuss the product to be advertised along with the appropriate fees to do so.
