Seven “X” Seven Link Award

This took me by surprise, but I’m very appreciative of my nomination from two wonderful friends, Autumn & Gabby,  Thank you both again!  Your poetry and stories add magic to my life, create more smiles and laughter, even some tears, but it has been truly wonderful getting to know you two awesome twins! 

As with most Blog Awards on WordPress there are stipulations that must be met upon acceptance of the coveted award. So, with the 7X7 Link Award the first thing you have to do is tell something about yourself that nobody knows.  Hmmm…

This is something I really don’t think about anymore, since I’m well over toddler’s age 🙂 but, I do have a vertical scar on my forehead, about an inch long.  It appeared after cracking my forehead open when I was around 2 years old, after running right into the corner of two walls! Ouch!  Who knows what I was thinking, other than obviously not watching where I was going, while running around, having fun.  I don’t have any other memories (a good thing), but I pretty much have worn bangs all my life.  I’m more comfortable with them and maybe,  just maybe they cover the scar, a little.  🙂

Now comes the 7X7 links to my pieces I feel are worthy to link up:
(more stipulations to the award)
Most Beautiful Piece:
Most Helpful:
Most Popular:
Most Controversial:  I don’t believe I’ve written any controversial…
Most Surprisingly Successful:
Most Underrated: (this is actually entitled “Unknown”)
I wrote this to honor my son’s friend who took his own life at the precious age of 14~
Most Pride Worthy:
Next step to the 7X7 Award fulfillment is to nominate 7 bloggers (in no specific order) who I feel deserve the honor and hopefully haven’t already received it.  If you have already received this, please forgive me…I just had to…! 🙂  Additionally, to choose only a few from the many wonderful blogs I’ve come to know is a very difficult task.  The blogs below are simply wonderful; they have moved me by their words of art and photography, so I do hope you visit them soon.  There are also many, many others I truly love, who have inspired and touched me, as well.  








Congratulations to all of you, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year!
