And the Award Goes To...

I've gotten a few beautiful awards recently and I want to pass them on to some really exceptional bloggers...

First, the I Heart Your Blog Award, from my friend Maithri (pronounced My3) over at The Soaring Impulse. I heart Maithri, so I'm happy he hearts my blog! Since he passed this on to 4 people, I'll do the same...

Sometimes Sophia is one of the blogs I visit first every day. She's a wonderful poet and a beautiful, funny person.
Live More Now is thoughtful and creative and smart... and she lives in Seattle, one of my favorite cities!
Stinking Billy... don't let the name fool you... Billy doesn't stink at all! He's lovely and a great big flirt and I'm tickled to a part of his little (but growing) bloggy harem!
Raw Cool... Michelle is full of energy (she runs 10 miles at a time!) and she always keeps it real.

Next is the Premios Dardo Award given to me by my sweet Heinous over at Irregularly Periodic Ruminations... this award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day. Cool, huh? I'm passing this one on to 4 people as well...

Life, Work, and Pleasure... if you're not reading my friend Z's blog yet, you're missing out. She is quite amazing... born in Slovakia, raised in Sweden, transplanted to North Carolina for 10 years, now living in Denmark! She is a scientist by trade but she has the heart and soul of an artist.
A Woman of No Importance... Fhina is one of the loveliest people I've had the pleasure to meet here in Blogland. I have just one thing to say about her blog. Read it!
Shut The Front Door!... Denise has an open mind and an open heart... she's someone you just know you'd love to live next door to!
Matter of Fact... Sherri is one of those wonderful people who gives me real hope for the whole world. We sit on opposite sides of the political and religious fences, but we keep finding out how alike we are... more than I ever thought possible... and it's a very good thing.

Last is the Biggest Heart Award, given by the lovely Fhina at A Woman of No Importance. I have to give this one to Maithri at The Soaring Impulse. Maithri is such a beautiful man, inside and out, and he truly has the biggest heart of anyone I've ever met. A doctor in Australia, he is also a poet and a musician... and he spends a lot of his time bringing attention to global issues that affect us all. His blog always touches me deeply and I try to repay him by making him laugh... it's a nice arrangement that seems to work for us!!

Thank you, Sweet Diane! It's my first blog site award!

I appreciate it even more coming from someone "on the other side of the aisle" with a heart bigger than most Christians I've come in contact with.

You put us all to shame!

Congrats to all the award winners.

The thing I love most about these is that it gets me more blogs to read.

But for tonight, sleep.

Maithri said...

My beautiful friend,

Truly...I am unworthy....

Thank you so much for the award and most especially for your loving words...

I think you know I love you.

You make me laugh like no one else... but more than that your kindness and depth inspire me every day.

Your one of those people I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt, that I would get along with like a proverbial 'house on fire' in real life... ;)

Thanks for your friendship and your beautiful soul,

You inspire me to be a better man,

With Love, M

Braja said...

I'm living large so I forgive you for excluding me. No, really...

:)

Love learning about new blogs, seriously...I'll be huntin' these folks down. Except for Jim. Who the hell needs a shoutout to that man??!! He's all over the place. Man has followers.

Protege said...

Oh my goodness Diane, no one has ever described the very soul of me so eloquently, yet in just one sentence.
Thank you, thank you for this award!! I am so honored.:)
I better check out all the other award winners as well.,)

And congratulations on all those beautiful awards you have received; you are so worth them all.;))

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Diane, with all these others, I am sitting here smiling and blushing, and I've actually just been over checking out the other blogs, so now I'm crying too, at the sheer beauty of the writing and the insight into others' gleaming lives!

You are too nice (if you can ever say anyone is 'too nice'), too beautiful, and far too generous for my (many) words! Big x's and a huge thankyou for our awards!

Stinking Billy said...

Diane, I was here earlier and missed my nomination. Got myself quite miffed, as a matter of fact, at not being mentioned in dispatches, but now I see why. My name doesn't light-up like everybody else's. I might need to think about changing it. :-( x

Sometimes Sophia said...

Awww, Diane, you're too nice. Congrats on your awards and thanks for passing one onto me. Your words about me are too kind.

Your blog, too, is at the top of my list. Your generous nature, fabulous sense of humor, honestly, and terrific writing skills really inspire. Keep up the good work, my friend.

Heather said...

Congrats on the awards! They are definitely deserved!!!

namaste said...

You are amazing! Thank you so much for the award. I just LOVE you! Move into my neigborhood; we'd have a blast!!!! ;)

blognut said...

Look at your popular bloggy self! Congrats on all these awards... and you forgot the one I gave you.

I'm loving some of these blogs you listed - I've been missing out!

Michelle said...

Dear Diane,
You made my day!!! Really!!!

Thank you dear person for just thinking about me. And all the other great blogs i have now discovered!!!! How awesome is that???

I appreciate you Diane!!!!

Heinous said...

Yay, you! You deserve them and they look mighty fine on you.

Diane said...

Everyone... thank you much! You guys are all great... so if you're not reading the blogs I listed, DO IT NOW! What's keeping you?! Do it, I said! Do it!! Now. Damn it.

LMN said...

Diane! Wahoooo!! My first blogging award EVER!!! Only took me, um, 9 months to get one, but the fact that it came from you made it worth the wait!! ;) I love your blog. Thanks for thinking of me when handing out your awards. You get so many it's a good thing you're able to pass them on, or you'd be like the kid who hoards all the cookies. Except that you're the opposite of that kid. Well, anyways! Thanks, you truly made my Monday!!
