it's such a good feeling

To be rich in friends is to be poor in nothing.
Lilian Whiting (1859-?) American author and journalist

recently marie sent me the 'you make my day award' - which of course made my day. marie right back to you!

after receiving the ymmd, I have been instructed to: “Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about being part of the blogging community! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on.”

like many other bloggers little did I realize when I started blogging that I would be entering a wonderful new world. a place where boundaries blur, distances shrink, and the concept of community grows to unimaginable dimensions! keeping my list to ten was impossible - so with the instructions in mind and half again, I present the ymmd to the following:

colette amelia, dumdad, gary, gem, jenclair, jude, junkthief, lettuce, mohamed, ms mamma, reya, salty, seraphine, vanilla ,wat

thank you all for making my day!

to my other friends here in the cyberhood, you make my day, a sweet mwah to you - yes, I mean YOU. and please feel free to spread the mwah!

Thanks for the YMMD kudos. Happy weekend!

Seraphine said...

When you said "there’s something for you at the mouse" I involuntarily looked at my hand, the mouse pad with the permanantly bent corner, the purple pen lying next to it.
Then it dawned on me, the other mouse, the wonderful one that lives in my computer, not the familiar one being squeezed mindlessly by my hand.

So I was surprised, delighted that a wonderful mouse looked back at me. You make my day too.
Sera hugs a mouse. The mouse.

oh gosh thanks!

Dumdad said...

Many thanks for making my day (again).

Maurice tells me that the award is actually for HIM and not me but that as he doesn't have his own blog you've had to give it to me. In compensation for this, he insists that he has a free hand to rummage about the cheese compartment in the fridge this evening. Fair enough.

You are so right about entering into a blogging community that I did not envision when I began. Isn't it amazing how we have come together to form this group of individuals? Your lives, your thoughts and your concerns stay with me and really do 'make my day' sometimes. Thanks for including me in this - I smile at the fantastic company you have placed me. MWAH!

Reya Mellicker said...

I am honored! (deep bow)

You make my day, too. Major mwahs headed in your direction.

thank you!!

Ms. Mamma said...

That's pretty cool, coming from the likes of you, Ms. Inspiration! Thank you. Especially since it comes from someone so thoughtful and kind and talented. XO

Wow you made my day! actually you make everyday a great day! Don't know what I would do if the electricity failed or the internet connection was cut...I think I would definitely have to write letters!

thanks so much!

jenclair said...

You just made MY day! What a cheerful surprise!

WAT said...

I am honoured and even moved by your acknowledgment and kind words. I'm a big sap, but it's fine! JUST FINE!

Blogging has been wonderful indeed, establishing a new set of friends and people whose thoughts, ideas, info., and other rants have made mainstream journalism quiver and shake in their boots.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE, as Lennon once hollered.

Salty Miss Jill said...

Awww...and MWAH!
YOU make MY day, lady. :)
BTW, I'm bringing your Sister Mary's buttermilk pie to a dinner party tonight. I'll let you know how it goes.

lettuce said...

thankyou Kimy, the feeling is entirely mutual.


Absolute Vanilla (& Atyllah) said...

Aw, thanks, Kim! You make my day too - you're always one of my favouritest stops in blogosphere!

kimy said...

mwah, mwah!

salty - can't wait to hear how the pie went over!

Mohamed said...

Hey, thanks Kim - that means a lot. Honestly. The blogosphere has led me to meet some wonderful people (i.e. you) and gives me new belief that despite all the crap in the world, the human connection and bond is still alive and transcends all else. Thank you - you make my day as well.
