Home Gratitude Honored


by Vidya Sury December 5, 2011 13 comments

I am honored to receive my first blog award from Terri Sonoda, with whom I share a happy virtual connection. Terri is an awesome lady I had the privilege of connecting with recently (seems like I’ve known her much longer, though) Besides her fantastic blog, she writes a column at the Examiner.com and is working on an awesome novel that is not only a #NaNoWriMo winner, but looks like it is going to be a bestseller.

Now, drumroll, please!

Here is my award:

“Liebster” = “beloved” or “favorite” in German. Gives me a very warm, fuzzy feeling.

And now, I get to nominate five bloggers I consider “ Liebster” to me. This is almost impossible because it is virtually impossible for me to choose just five. So I chose six.

Unknown Mami writes at well, Unknown Mami
One of my favorite blogs. I love her brown paper bag and I get worried when she doesn’t post. She’s the lovely hostess of the Sunday In My City linky, which I very much look forward to, besides her funkily written posts.

Rachel writes at Totally Ovar It
We met, we clicked and I love it. Lovely blog that speaks to my heart.

Farida writes Chapters From My Life
She’s my friend and a big inspiration and I admire her because she is strong, in spite of all the s**t life throws at her.

Kim writes My Inner Chick
A fantastic blog that makes me laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time.

Betsy writes at The Zen Mama’s Blog
Highly motivating, Betsy has a warm style of writing that makes me feel better instantly. Check out her books. “How To Be A Zen-Mama” is a wonderful book for parents and Betsy’s Book of Quotes is something you will love to keep handy as well.

Sheila writes at the Zen-Sational Living Blog
A lovely person, and a terrific writer. I enjoy her blog. You can get her new book “Booyah! Spirit:  52 Ingredients For A Healthy Soul. Suffering is Optional” and “Zensational Living” here.

Dear Nominees,

I would be honored if you accept this award. And to keep the happiness flowing, you might like to do the following; Not that I’ll haunt you if you don’t – but still. I think you’ll enjoy doing it. Just sayin’
(Terri did such a good job of writing these points that I just copied it from her blog and pasted it here)

  1. Copy and paste the award on your blog. (Right click and “save image as”)
  2. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
  3. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  4. Hope that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.

Thank you, Terri for this lovely award. I treasure it.

Feeling blessed,

Vidya Sury
