You Light Up My Life award

Chuck of Foster Me Up made a comment today that we need some new awards. That prompted me to come up with this award which I mean to give to a number of wonderful bloggers who indeed "light up my life."

Now I will NOT subject you to the song by Debbie Boone that she sang in 1978. But I will quote from Rabbi Michael Strassfeld in order to describe the people I think deserve this award:

"Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished."

So now I list the dear people I think deserve this award:

Chuck of Foster Me Up
Sandee of Comedy Plus
Sandy Carlson of Writing in Faith
Roger of Idaho Daily Photo
Mo of It's A Blog Eat Blog World
ellen b of The Happy Wonderer
jams of The Poor Mouth
jmb of Nobody Important
Jim of Jim's Little Blog
Marilyn of More Random Than Average
Ivanhoe of Communique from Ivanhoe
Ian of The Popcorn Principle
Travis of Trav's Thoughts
Jeff B of A Word in Edgewise
Jamie of Duward Discussion
Lois of Lowdown from Lois
Penelope/Mama Bear of Cafe at the End of the Universe
Ling/Elaine of It's not a Weekend; It's a Lifestyle

Okay everyone I hope you are happy with your award. Feel free to pass it on but if you do, please tell people who created the award, okay? And please link back to my page. Thanks.

I think the award is the right size to post in your sidebar if you choose.

Your "brilliant" sense of humor and your generous spirit come through in this one. Tell me this: is it a clapper? Hee hee. I love it and will add it and link back. I think I have cleared out much of my blogger backlog of images to finally have some fun again! You're tops.

Thank you, MT, I probably don't deserve it. But thanks for sure.

It may be a while before I put it on, I am still using the 'old Blogger' on all but Ask.

I will blog about the award fairly soon and stick it on permanently a little later.
