I was deligthed to find a message about a "Blog of substance award" in my inbox today. Of substance... yes, I was truly pleased. Something of substance is exactly what I ultimately would love to convey. I believe you have a responsibility when you engage people minds. I mean, isn't it a good question what you want to fill peoples heads with? Anyhow...
There's a few rules which comes with the award and they are as follows:
1. To thank the blogger who gave you the award...
Mariasol, gracias!! You make my heart smile on a daily basis. I know you love animals but I also believe you have a heart of gold, and that makes you deserving of the substance award!
2. To sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation and experience using five words...
My words relate to what I believe we should - as naturally as breathing - extend towards animals: Humanity Empathy Awareness Responsibility Trust
3. And now to pass it on to some other deserving blogs... (in random order.)
Well, I would have to mention a lovely modern day sheperdess and photographer over at Yes and Amen. I felt an instant affinity the first time I saw one of her photos of a lamb. I thought there would have to be a very fine and gentle soul behind this photo and indeed there was. On her Flickr page you will find the words: "Here is just a random sampling of the wild and beautiful things I have seen through His lens and experienced in my walk with Him. Photography is simply chasing His light... It is my life, and I love it." Thank you Junelle, for sharing the light you find on your way. It's awesome!
And Kat for her lovely sentimented Ark for God - encouraging Acts of Random Kindness. I love the idea so much. I brings about so much hope and just imagine all the good feeling these acts spreads. I can only imagine all the goodness in your heart to write such a blog.
And lastly (because I don't have more time now) but the great spirited cat soldier Marg over at Margs Animals. I have an incurable soft spot for cats and love this lady SO much for doing all she does to home and rehome cats.
There you have it... and yes, the lovely image is by Junelle at Yes and Amen.
P.S. I so badly want to plant a kiss between the eyes on that little head :-)
