I don’t normally do a lot of reposts, and not in so close succession – but I was tidying up my tags to remove double-ups and misspelling, etc (as you do), and stumbled upon this one. 82 more words
We see the same people every day, say hi, and converse in minor chit chat. People we call our friends and family are given the privilege of knowing us better, but even those closest to us are often still kept at a safe distance. It is through our writings that we tear down those walls and pour our hearts out on the page. It is our readers, usually complete strangers, who get the most intimate view of who we really are. Thank you AloyFerns for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. You mentioned that you were excited to learn more about me. Like everyone on here, all you need do to learn everything about me is simply read my posts. I'm not so sure how I feel about awards just yet, but I am so thankful for the nomination! Thank you also Tapasi and Vivian Zems for your One Lovely Blogger nominations. I am truly grateful. I decided to start my own personal tradition, in lieu of participating in the standard award post. As a way to say thank you to people who have acknowledged my efforts, I chose to reblog my favorite posts from their pages; acknowledging their efforts and showing why they had been nominated for the awards in the first place. As such, I wanted to share this post from AloyFerns. In I Miss You Dad!, he shares a beautiful piece of his life and inspires me with the message that life does go on. "Our life was not ended, but it was changed."
