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.
From 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.
