The Liebster Award.

Well knock me over with a feather, I am still kind of surprised but very flattered that Kimberly would be kind enough to pick my blog for note in this way, and she gets a very sincere thank you for the compliment.

I have been looking at this screen for a few minutes, totally nonplused because this is kinda new.

Firstly if you have a moment (or several hours) to check out Kimberly’s blog: Words4jp

I did after she commented on a rather dark post of mine and found myself admiring her for not only her strength but willingness to share.  I hope she continues because she inspires and comforts, whether she knows it or not.

I will quote from her blog about the Liebster Award:

The Liebster Award is very unique in the fact it brings recognition to the smaller blogs of the ‘verse.  With that in mind, all of the nominated blogs will have under 200 followers.
