I am deeply honored to be given this award.
When I first became aware of the award itself I thought how truly appropriate that someone recognize the impact that Renee has on so many people. She is somehow able to keep track of the little details in regards to others lives, and she makes an effort to uplift and bless, even through all of the difficult things that she struggles with at the moment.
I also saw that my dear friend Michelle was given this award and thought how appropriate that was as well. Her thoughtfulness in living and the little things that she does for her dear mother who is struggling with cancer right now brings hope and inspiration through her words and through her paintings.
I was incredibly surprised to have been bestowed with this award, it means a great deal in itself and it means a great deal to me.
Thank you CES, Bella and Renee and all of my blogging friends. I was given this award on my writing blog, I love it so much though that I wanted to share it here as well. :D
This is what CES had to say:
You are Renee's friend but I don't see you have this yet. I came here especially to give this to you.
I Ces, happily present this award to you Strawberry Girl! You are Renee’s Friend and should rightly have this award. I shall quote my dearest friend Bella from on here.
"This one is meaningful to me in three profound ways. Firstly, it was created in honor of Renee, one human being who has made such a difference in the lives of many just by being. Her honestly, wit, intelligence, and grit are a tremendous source of inspiration. She can elicit raucous laughter and guffaws in her banter, and then turn right around and offer the most heartfelt, gentle words of wisdom and emotional support. She is a spreader of love, simple and true. And her love is infectious.
Secondly, this award was created in collaboration with one of my best friends, Ces. She is, in Renee's own words, truly original. She is an incredible artist, both in pen and ink and paint. She is fiery passion with a gentle hand. She is laughter, fun, joy, intellectual stimulation, a sister. The concept and design of the award belong to Ces.
Thirdly, this is a brand new award, and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds its way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns…"
