Yesterday marked my fourth blogging anniversary with WordPress, a concerted effort having been made more in the last two years or so.
During that period, I have found a purpose, an outlet and worthy relationships from many countries that have given me much joy. I have learned much about from the WordPress platform, shared as much about my beloved South Africa and will continue to do so.
One of those precious relationships is my friend, Valerie Cullers, who navigates the world from a Christian view. Having lost my dear Christian Aunt to cancer, my heart was lacking in the Christianity that my aunt instilled and lived. In Valerie, I found solace in words that uplift, comfort and educate. Valerie is a writer, speaker and author living near Boise, Idaho. My good friend works as a Speaker Trainer for the ministry she serves with. A bibliophile, voracious reader and educator, Val desires to be a peacemaker in the midst of a divisive society.
In honour of all bloggers, Valerie has created the Bloggers International Friendship Award which in honour of her second blogiversary, she will award annually… and her first award was to me!!. In Val’s words, this award is to be bestowed to “the one person whom you have connected with from another country, who has enriched your life and you truly consider this person a friend”.
I’m honoured to be blessed so. I’ve learned much from Val. She may be a distance away geographically but her teachings and words live in my heart.
In that same spirit, on my blogging anniversary, I would like to award The Bloggers International Friendship Award to Kranti over at Sparkkling Thoughts.
Kranti is in her words :
A blogger and free spirit. I believe writing is a blessing to me! It makes me feel complete & better as a person. For me, every little experience counts in life. Incidents I come across always inspire me to share my experience. I think, if my blogs can encourage a single person in some way or spread little happiness I will feel truly blessed. Life is too short to get caught up in negative thoughts, let’s radiate some positive vibes together!
Congratulations Kranti on The Bloggers International Friendship Award. Award one that you think that is deserving of this award.
Let us ALL clear the negativity and doom, let us continue to Inspire, Uplift and Motivate.
