Blog of the Year 2012 Award... on my Blog

Blog of the Year 2012 Award..... on my Blog

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

This morning I was so awed... so amazed to find out that someone gave me an award for my blog.  I just sat here... and read it several times while feeling such a quiet, heart-touching feeling inside my heart.

My thoughts were ... wow!  'Me?'  I'm not even perfect, and sometimes I use a 'bad' word when writing.... my stories aren't always happy stories... then, 'oh wow, I'm so honored anyone would think that I could be 'special enough'.... to want to give me an award.  Remember, I got several not long ago... I was so amazed just as I am ... this morning.  It means so much to me.

So, while sitting here quietly thinking, absorbing this.. I've let the feeling of this wrap around me like a welcomed warm blanket when it's so cold.  How special, how so very special.  Wow!  I say it to myself in the quietest way.  I'm just honored...

Thank you, Viveka... for giving me the Blog 2012 of the Year Award.  I love coming to your blog....  myguiltypleasures at:

I love the special songs that play on her blog each time I visit, her beautiful photography when she's out and about doing everyday things.  She shares her country, Sweden, on her blog.  I have a special place in my heart for Sweden.... my special systervan, Lena, lived in Sweden... she died not long after my son, Tommy died.

You can't imagine how special it was for me to become friends with Viveka at  I felt an instant connection with her... we have since visited each other on our blogs, commented and talked about different things.  I'm honored to be friends with you, Viveka.

Thank you for the Blog 2012 of the Year Award from my heart.  I'm amazed my blog touched you in such a way that you wanted to give that to me.  I know for someone to make me feel I want to give them an award... some kind of special thoughts would go into it... that would mean I thought them special in such a meaningful way.  Wow... that means that somehow 'I was'.  Isn't that amazing?  :)))

When I get time I will follow the rules of receiving the special award.  I will put the logo photo on my  wordpress blog... I want to put it on my happycolorsandgrannygee.blogspot... to share, to see it.  It reaches out to me to make me feel... special.  It means the world to me.

Here's the link to the post Viveka wrote on her blog today when she gave this special award out to me, and other special blogs she found meaningful to her (Mine is ......   Gloria @ Granny's Colorful)....
