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

I’ve been nominated for the Best Moment Award by one of my favourite places to visit,

The thought-provoking Grandma at

Grandma I don’t know your real name but your site inspires me to write about whatever comes across my path. Grandma has just about been nominated for every award in the blogging world including 2013 and if you take a visit you will understand why. Entertaining to say the least, heart warming and a direct approach to whatever ails her. Enjoy reading her words, I have immensely.

For this award I must comply with the rules of acceptance to truly be worthy of this honor.  The rules are quite simple:

  1. Create an acceptance speech either by video or a written speech post
  2. Pass the award on to 15 other bloggers.

Thank you Grandma Crankycaregiver it is people like you that inspire me to keep going. I started this blog  at the beginning of the year and did not know one single blogger in the world.

Five months down the track and I now have a wonderful network of blogging friends from all over the world. My decision to complete the Jeff Goins writing course has changed my life and my attitude to writing. I have also met many new and talented writers within that group. I am still slogging away at my novel, but my muse gets caught up in ideas and well, it’s going to be a long ride for me and that is okay.  I appreciate the readers support and I thank you all for every comment of encouragement I have received. I look forward to building on my dreams and sharing my world with you.

I thank those who support and inspire me by nominating their great sites.  There are more than I could write a few more but these are the ones I feel share some great moments. Some take photographs, some illustrate and most just write about great moments in time.

To my nominees, I will tell you that I give you this award with the standard “No Strings Attached.”  If you want to, pass it on..if you don’t want to, just take the award and know that I think you deserve the recognition for your great posts! I know we are all busy.
