Wednesday Pay It Forward . . .
First of all - today is Oprah's last show. Whether you like her or not - she was on television for decades (25 years) and she changed and made an impact on America in her own way.
I believe she fought for women's rights. She tried to get us to be more positive. She fought to stop abuse - physical, verbal, and sexual. She was global too - helped in Africa and other countries. She has been very generous to her viewers.
Can you remember anything else she did?
I started my grateful journal - say 15 years ago because of her - I still do it every day - and it has literally changed my life.
The commercials for her show today - for 30 seconds - a million dollars! $$$$$$$$
Last week I received this award from Diane at Southhamsdarling - please check her blog out - she is from England! How cool is that? And her daughter just got engaged and the wedding is this summer I believe.
I'd like to thank Diane for this award - The Good Bloggers Pay It Forward Award. The rules for receiving this Award are to post the Award at the top of the page, (oops!) link up with the person who handed it to you (check!) and then pass it on to FIVE bloggy friends. (my dilemma!).
There are not any questions or work to do on this award at all.
This is always the hardest part and I don't know what to do -because I only have first class GOOD followers. So I'd have to take the time to list most of you. Diane this is what has taken me so long to do it. So what to do - what to do.
I will try to list things my bloggy friends have done for me and if you have done one of those things - please take this award and put it on your blog!
I have received so many wonderful gifts from my friends:
Friendship, loyalty, prayers, laughter, silliness, health food ideas, beautiful photos and eye candy, bouquets of flowers, answering my questions, helping me with my blog, telling me where to go to get some information, I've met some of you, been to lunch with some, received gifts, I've learned something new from you everyday - knowledge, advice, support, comradeship, been able to bear my soul, writing tips, identifying with some of my issues (yes I have some - lol), animal stories, joking and playing, crafts, thrifting, recipes, eating, sharing information, and the most important thing of all - I have shared the Christian faith - the people behind the blogs are real - and they have become dear friends of mine.
So my pay it forward - is to say thank you and to send love♥ to all!
If you have done any of these things please take the award - I know so many of you are Award Free, but those who are not - take it and pay it forward to your friends - that is what would make me happiest.
“Friendship is the greatest of worldly goods. Certainly to me it is the chief happiness of life.
If I had to give a piece of advice to a young man about a place to live, I think I should say, 'Sacrifice almost everything to live where you can be near your friends.'
I know I am very fortunate in that respect. ”
