I am part of the family award

I thank Michelle so much and yes,

I do feel part of the WordPress family and I feel happy and safe there. I can feel the love and warmth, the compassion and hope within this family, I have grown to love in the last 10 months. I give you all a big hug and thank everyone for letting me be part of this huge family, and making me welcome and receiving me in the midst of it. This big family gives me inspiration, thoughts, love, care, knowledge, new ideas, laughs, tears and all in all so much happiness.

The rules are as follows:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you.

4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them

5. That is it. Just please pick 10 people who have taken you as  a friend, and spread the love.

Quoted from the Rules:

“This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award”

♥ ♥ ♥

It is always hard to find just a number of people to nominate and with this one , we are all part of the family! Everyone deserves this award. Still to be within the rules, I shall nominate 10 bloggers.

If you do not do awards, this is a compliment and so I let you know that your blog is loved.

Here we are spread the love….
