Feelin' the Love

I'm a bit late with this one.  A few days ago I was given this award by High Heeled Life.  Her story has been an inspiration to Sandy and I, if you want to read about the triumph of the human spirit or just meet someone amazing I highly encourage you to visit her. Here's what she said,

 "I would also like to take this opportunity to award Life in Quotations with a very special award for reaching 101 followers!!! Congratulations my friend!!! His blog has inspired me to open up more in my own writing, in hopes that it will also help others. No topic is taboo with this exceptional, thought provoking writer - emotional, intellectual, spiritual, sexual, philosophical, social, physical - he and his readers cover it all, in a respectful manner."


I'm asked to list ten things that make me happy:

-my wife Sandy, for her love and support
-my writing
-conversation, and being confided in
-hot summer days
-long legs and short sundresses
-being asked to perform my raps at our neighbour's party on the weekend
-making new friends, here or in person
-the differences between men and women
-anyone who takes a few minutes out of their day to read me.  Thank you.

I'm also required to pass this award on to each of you as you reach 101 followers, so I'll be keeping my eyes open!

HHL, thanks for the award. I know I'll be passing it back to you in no time.  ♥

  4. I adore your list!!! its full of fun and joy!! Thank you for your sweet words - you know I feel the same about you and Sandy-.

    And thank you for your comments on my Picking Up the Pieces - Victim to Survivor (I will be posting a different piece each Monday). The odd thing (if I can use that word) is that I still have not been able to feel anger about this. My frustration etc. is with myself for not being able to do things like before.

    Shrek-o , as I have started to refer to the "head" Doctor - and I are working on getting angry part!!

    So - On brighter news!!!I am so happy for you, and it really was an honour to award you with! Have a great day my friend!

  5. YAY!! I hope I reach 101 followers one day!! ahah, but I seem to loose followers more than gain..:)

  6. Congrats on your award!! You really deserve every award you get. I hope you get 100's more.!!
