An award

My good friend Carlos, from cruzdelsur, came here a few weeks ago and left something for me

20131027-122432

Thank you very much Carlos for giving me this award and for your friendship, it means a lot to me.  I recommend a visit to his wonderful blog where the magic of his words awakens the senses and lift the spirit, and where his photos of his beautiful country, Argentina, with the majestic Andes mountains, the Cordillera de los Andes,  will bring you a little closer to the infinite.  Click here to visit his blog.

This award is a beautiful one.  It speaks of friendships shared throughout the WordPress community, of all the visits, compliments, encouragements, good wishes and sometimes, support our blogger friends so generously gives us.  It speaks of the impact other bloggers have on us, and without all of you my blog would be like an empty shell.  Each one of you is important, each one of you brings a special touch to my blog and your friendship is highly valued.  Now, I’m supposed to pick 10 blogs to give this award to, but it’s impossible…  How can I choose 10 and leave others behind ?  So I decided to give all of you an award and here you are my friends, you all deserve it.

    Thank you, Jocelyne, for the award. It’s much appreciated.

  15. janina says:

    I feel you are part of my online family, jocelyne, as you know and, therefore, your award is most appropriate and well deserved. Thank you for feeling the same way about me and putting me on your list! Your comments and Likes on my blogposts are always encouraging and most welcomed; it means a lot to me. Some of the blogs on your list are also those I visit and have come to know and appreciate too. Now, I will prepare a post nominating my ten (‘tho as a visitor to quite a few WP blogs, along with others on the worldwide web (I like to keep abreast of what others are doing), that choice too will be very hard!). :oD

    Enjoy your Christmas break!

    • Jocelyne says:

      You’re welcome Janina ! I also have other blogs I visit that are not on WordPress but they are also my friends. I hope you had a beautiful Christmas Janina and I’m sorry for the my late response. :)

  16. […] you, Jocelyne, for this wonderful award…you’ve made my Christmas, and ended a most unhappy year for […]

Grâce à toi, j’ai découvert d’autres univers et de très beaux talents! Merci donc pour ce partage!
    Bon temps des fêtes et à bientôt! ;-) :-)

    • Jocelyne says:

      Thank you so much Jim for your beautiful words. What a joy to know my images and words can convey peace and balance. Knowing that I can reach out to people and give, even if only for a moment, a sense of peace, makes me very happy !

    Wow, Jocelyne! that’s such an honor! Thanks a lot for this very wonderful, touching gesture. I’ve always believed in our WordPress ‘family’. This award, rather the thought behind this award, therefore, means a lot to me. Thanks again, dear friend, will post it soon! :) :)
