How GratiTude can change your day

It has been written by some of you how you don’t and wouldn’t be expected to – unless sleeping with your computer 24/7 read and comment to every person who calls past and witnesses your thoughts, dreams and aspirations of the daily, weekly, or monthly posting, their aren’t enough hours in the day. With the updating of WordPress and the assembly of new widgets, it does make it easier, however to view our comments and those who comment and then reply. (My personal thoughts)

To my followers all 100 (I had a jump this week (within) as I reached the milestone), I am grateful to all who may call past and leave comments, and it makes a difference to my day, and I hope and guess also when I acknowledge you, that you did call past, you maybe do care,(that I did!)

Two of my readers have passed on awards to me. And in appreciation for these nominations  I acknowledge these two people, their wonderful blogs and how I admire their creativity, and how they make my corner of blogging on twistedvines, more meaningful each time they leave a comment.

Firstly to Michael – Have a Dream, he nominated me for the sunshine award,( Michael’s nominating post) and did just that. It’s been at the back of my mind to acknowledge this award, and here finally I’ve done so. Michael has written some fantastic thought provoking posts, one of his most popular postings was ‘Friendship is a Two Way Street’, I admire his writing skills and diversity of his talents and subjects.

A list of questions which go with this award

Now, maybe not all of you accept these ‘blogging’ awards but hey, think of it as a way of reaching out to a few more people as your viewer dreams, that they might like to visit where you live, read a book that you’ve reviewed, share a love of photography or catch a link, cook a recipe that you’ve written or look at a photo you’ve captured. You all have something to give, even if we pass only once…to connect from my little corner.

Have a great week everyone, and thank you for visiting.

    I had read a few posts before I could figure out where to place a comment. You have a delightful blog!! Thanks for your visit. Sometimes it is hard to find the time to return all comments, but it is truly worth the effort. You never know what you may find when you come calling! Blessings, Judy

    • You’re smiling aren’t you John….Leif Garrett, the late seventies ‘teen idol’, I think he only had maybe four hits…the one I remember the best…I was made for dancin…I used to always get told off, for putting up posters on my walls in those day with drawing pins…then came along the ‘blu tac’ days to save me! LOL!…memory lane. Have a great week! x

  10. Congratulations on your awards.
    I appreciate the time bloggers take to visit and leave a comment on my blog. I do reply to all and try to return the visit and make a comment. There are some blogs where I cannot or do not know how to leave a comment. Must try to remember to get my kids to help next time one of them come home.

  11. It’s so funny because I was just getting back to all that I’ve missed returning comments and likes alike. I also recently reached a 100 follows and received a couple awards. It definitely is an honor and these awards gives us an opportunity to show are tokens of appreciation and gives an opportunity to learn much much more as well to connect you with more bloggers so they it is an award that gives you 10 fold! I look forward to following along the journey of sharing~

  12. It’s always fun to find a blog that you enjoy and someone you connect with. Blogging makes a difference in my life. It’s like having lots of girlfriends…like when we were in school! I love it! Thanks for inspiring me today!
