And, I got some awards! The first one I received from Diane and Heather. It's a friendship award that represents the friends we've made through blogging. It's kind of fitting that I got it from Diane, one of my oldest friends, and Heather, a new blog friend. They're kind of like friend bookends.
The other award is from Protege. She gave me this Real People, Real Blogs award. It's for blogs that keep it real. I learn something new almost every time I read Protege's blog. She knows so much! Thank you Z! I'll try to keep on keeping it real if you keep on teaching me things!
It's funny how caught up in people's lives we become just by reading a few paragraphs they write every day. We can sense when they're having a good day or a bad one even when they don't come out and say it because we get used to their writing voice. We may see our co-workers for 8 or more hours a day, we may talk to our families on the phone a couple of times a week, but reading someone's words every day is like taking a little look into their soul. And, I'm grateful that I get to share that with my blog friends.
I'll pass these on when it's not 2:30 in the morning and I can think better!
