Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time.
Oh my goodness, I can’t believe this! Wow. I don’t even have a speech prepared, I just came to the banquet with a friend!
Well … gosh … think! Um … well, first of all, thank you to the Academy, the Board, all my fellow bloggers, and especially to “Moment Matters!” It means everything to me to receive this prestigious award — I didn’t even know I’d been nominated!
I also, of course, must thank my wonderful son, and my husband, the love of my life, for encouraging me to start blogging. I have a lifetime of experiences, memories, losses, victories, pain, joy, the entire life spectrum, from which to draw. Many people who mattered to me are gone … many who make life beautiful are still with me and bring me deep happiness every day.
Special recognition like a “Best Moment Award” would seem to imply some sort of niceness in a person, which comes as a surprise to me until I remember that people can’t see the thought bubbles that appear above my head as I blow through life. Hahaha!
Oh dear, the music’s playing, I have to get off the stage, but thank you all SO MUCH! I will never forget this …
