The last award I received was the Stylish Blogger award. It’s only happened a couple of times but it has always been a fun surprise.
Our friend, Carl D’Agostino, awarded FriendtoYourself.com the Liebster Blog Award. Why? He says it’s to bring additional recognition to this site. I now understand that FriendtoYourself.com qualifies because it has less than 200 followers. This is the one time I am glad to have less than 200 followers because being honored by Carl is huge for me. If you check out his comments here at FriendtoYourself.com, his cartoons and comics on his own blog, i know i made you smile, and start interacting with him through his comment section, it won’t take you long to understand why.
Carl has over the past year+ become my friend and mentor. He never asked for it. You know that in the presence of a generous spirit, we naturally give without expecting more in return than that person is who they are. His intuition and sometimes edge, inspire and instruct. I’d be a fool not to listen. He doesn’t ask for it. But you know how it goes. In the presence of a generous spirit…. (Liebster means ‘beloved’ in German. Is that right Thysleroux? I think it’s real sweet. Thanks Carl.)
The rules roll that if you receive the award, not only do you have the, “less than 200 followers,” but you should have more. Those are the rules :). That, and, you should link back to the blogger that nominated you (yours truly) and nominate five more blogs. Let them know that you nominated them, or it may be that your tree grows in a forest of Internet Web and jungle but never seen.
Here are five blogs I am honored to share space with…. Five out of almost a google more out there that I admire – all for their own reasons. (You know who you are.) People doing what they love to do and working hard at it are a delight in life. Keep on.
1. Absurd Old Bird ~ aka Val Erde… who plays with words and images.
2. The Duck of Indeed Art, writing, and one person’s journey to do it all, – with, well… Duck.
3. KANSAS MEDIOCRITY, – with Tracy Phillips.
4. ocdbloggergirl.com LIVING WITH OCD…WITH HUMOR, – with Lisa
5. Living Victoriously Hope, Life, Inspiration, and Realities, – with Marie.

Mentor is a pretty big word. You are so much more knowledgeable but I suppose a solid liberal arts education can bring some insights to the empirical world. In the 12 Step rooms even a house painter or grocery clerk may sponsor a lawyer or banker. Each a a particular wisdom whether or not you know molecules and that’s a place I have gotten some very uncommon wisdom from some very common people. That will put you in your place right quick.
smile. i hear u.
I’m very happy for you getting another award. You definitely deserve it. I only recently became a follower of Carl and he is awesome.
Well golly!!! Thank you very much for the nomination! I was just stopping by as usual and am very pleased. I hope Trace (Kansas Mediocrity) knows he got nominated. He and Marie truly deserve it. I haven’t ever been to the other 2 blogs, but will definitely stop by.
