Caribou, Kip and I thank you for the numerous comments, emails, good thoughts and prayers over the last few days. You have no idea how much it has meant to us. Caribou has responded very well to the pain medication and there is a twinkle back in her eyes (and she is telling Argus who is boss again). This is good. We are still unclear as to what the diagnosis is, but as long as she is comfortable and enjoying her life, I am thankful. For now, Caribou’s condition seems to have stabilized. I intend to spend as much quality time with her as I can over the next days, weeks and hopefully months. God has given me this beautiful canine partner and I am reminding myself each day to enjoy her in my life.
I have also been overwhelmed with the generosity of blogging awards in the last week or so and would like to take a few minutes to recognize them and shout out a big thank you!
Premio Dardas Award
This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day.
The Butterfly Award
For the Coolest blog I ever know…
Kreative Blogger Award
Presented to bloggers whose creativeness inspires…
Sheri at A Novel Menagerie flattered me with this award and wrote: “OK… so I am in love with her doggie just a little… but, there’s a lot more going on at this gal’s terrific blog. Her writing is always creative, her site well organized, and I simply cannot wait to read her posts.“
Also, Jenn at Should Be Reading recognized my blog A Novel Challenge for this award. She recognized me as “most organized” and wrote: “as she helps us all keep track of what challenges & events are taking place in the blog-o-sphere, and where to find them!“
Great Buddy Award
…for blogging buddies
Presented to me by a wonderful blogging buddy Teddy at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time.
And finally, Lenore at Presenting Lenore included Caribousmom in her Rock My World Awards and recognized this blog for Top Notch Book Reviews (I also was thrilled to win one a copy of The Reincarnationist over at her blog!)
All of these bloggers are fantastic – I read their blogs daily as they are on my Google Reader. Each and everyone of them deserves these awards as well. THANK YOU to all of them for the recognition. I would also like to add that I read more than 300 blogs! Every time these awards go out, I struggle because I’d like to list every blog I enjoy.
