Lucky Friday the 13th:

Last August B’s radio station asked each of “on-air personalities” to create a blog. Their hope was to enable the listeners of the radio station to get to know the jocks, to give them a small insight into their off-air lives. B decided to blog about the adventures with our Seeing Eye puppy LW. However, we soon found I was taking the photos, checking for comments and encouraging B to post. I had become addicted. After I purchased a new camera and started taking 100s of photos I decide to start this blog. Initial, as I am not very good with words, it was a photoblog only. This was a place to park my photos in the hopes of our distance families and friends stopping by to see what B and I had been up to.

Never did I expect to meet so many wonderful people; those whom I know, only, through their pictures and words which are posted on their own little place in cyberspace. I am truly amazed at the incredible amount of talent each of you posses. I have, also, found the amount of encouragement amongst the individual blogger heartwarming. There are so many kind and thoughtful comments left, not only on my blog but on the blogs which I frequent.

I have learned about photography from many of you, I have had a look into the lives of people living with limited abilities, I have read about the sadness and the celebrations you have all shared. It is because of you all that I have continued to march forward with this blog. I look forward to each morning when I make a cuppa tea and page through my daily stops. It is truly a pleasure to have met each of you if only through the magic of the internet.

Recently, I received several awards. I am apologetic for not posting them sooner. I am flattered that you have awarded them to me.

Mercedes I received:

And from Debbie over at Three Weddings, I was given these wonderful awards:

I would like to pass them to all of my daily stops. You’re listed on the right. Please take your award with the knowledge that you have made my day a bit brighter. There is only one request. If you choose to display the Share the Love award please link it back to Memoirs of a Mommy. It’s a very special award that she created in honor of the donor who saved (her son) Noah’s Life. Noah received a heart transplant, and she hopes that by passing this award around the blogosphere everyone can help raise awareness of the need for Organ Donation. And again, thank you all.

You are most definitely showing the love here!Congratulations to you. Thank you so much!

Also~about talking and grandmothers: I used to talk really fast and my Granny would be so intense in my conversations at her kitchen table~then when I would finish talking, she would ask my Dad, "What did she say?" LOL! I have slowed down since I have been teaching.

Thanks again for sharing your wonderful awards!

You are welcome. I would, however, disagree with you on your writing ability. I enjoyed this post and the background on how you got started blogging! :)

Congratulations on all of the awards. You definitely deserve them all, especially that Super Commenter award!

I've totally fallen behind on blog reading/commenting over the last couple of weeks. Everything is still there, piling up in my feedreader though. Maybe one of these days I'll manage to wade through it all.
