Reader Appreciation Award

If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.  ~ George MacDonald

I started this blog 10 months ago today.

You, my friends, have cast the gift of a loving thought into my heart time and again.

Over the next couple of weeks, I’m going to try to intermingle some thank you notes with my regular TMG posts. I’ve been remiss in not thanking you sooner or paying your kind encouragement forward by passing it on to other bloggers.

Now, because I’ve waited so long, I’m at a bit of a loss as to where to start. I’ve decided to begin at the end and try to work my way backwards.

The Reader Appreciation Award.

Rules to this award:

1. Link the Award image back to the one who presented it to you.

First, a long overdue thanks to Pastor Wrinkles @ Reinventing the We’ll  who was kind enough to nominate me for this award back in February. I’m including his description of himself to entice you to check out his blog. 😀

As I walk through my changes good and bad, the good God I serve is always using those changes to reinvent me…to reinvent us. For you see, my change touches others; So my transformation causes there to be a “Reinvention of the We’ll”.

And most recently, my thanks to Jen @ Step on a Crack. If I’d been more timely and responded sooner to Pastor J, I could have nominated you first!

Maybe that’s part of what I love about her!
As a matter of fact, you’ll find the group I’m thanking here to be pretty diverse. As I understand the award, it’s an opportunity to thank those who read both your writing and your heart.  And who take the time to share their own hearts in return.
I started The Fork in the Road 6 months before Two Minutes of Grace. I’ve had almost 80,000 hits at Fork compared to 14,500 here. I’ve written twice as many posts for Fork.
BUT, I’ve had 3,130 comments here – 40 more than on Fork!
Since most of you are bloggers, you know how much it means when someone takes the time to comment.
I can’t thank you enough. I hope people read all of your comments. They add so much truth and depth to my two minutes.
The exchange that goes on here at TMG between wise, caring, thoughtful people is so much more than I could have ever imagined would come from this simple 2 minute blog. I’m honored by your gift of time and reflection.
In addition to Jen and Pastor J, I truly hope you’ll check out these uniquely wonderful blogs.
