Vanilla has given me the "Perfect Blend of Friendship" award. Since I can't quite read what's written on the second cup from the left, I'm glad someone else could: TRUST, KINDNESS, HONESTY, CARING. Ah, these are some of the things I've learned from blogging.
One cup of tea is nice, especially when I need a pick-me-up. It sits there smiling, with a cloud of warmth hanging over it. But having four cups side by side says friendship, and that's what blogging means to me. I like sharing, for instance, my love of books with *bookie* friends. Care for a sip of tea, anyone? I'll pour. And while we drink to friendship, I'll expound on these four words with my *wordy* friends.
TRUST is always essential to friendship, especially when we share things about ourselves that make us feel vulnerable.I'm passing along this award to these bloggers:
KINDNESS from friends allows us to open our lives to each other and share not only good things happening, but painful things as well.
HONESTY is what your kindness elicits from me; I want to merit your trust by sharing what I have learned, even if I fear you may disagree.
CARING is what I've felt as we share good times and bad; it's so great to have bloggy friends.
