This beautiful award was given to me by my wonderfully artistic blogger friend Kimmie. Evidently, the award was created by two women who wanted to show appreciation of the impact their friend Renee made on their lives. The award is meant "to be given to those that, like Renee, are like "the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns..."
If I'm an acorn, becoming an oak, then I am nourished by you, my readers and family and friends. By water and sunlight and the constant reaching out of darkness and cool, dark earth toward the sky.
Thank you Kimmie -- it's an honor. And I will tag three others for the honor, as well. For the acorns they sow and for their strength. These are:
Gberger for her bravery and intense spirituality
Jeneva for her wisdom and poetry and advocacy
Vicki for her new book that I've had the honor of reading and from which millions of acorns will fall
