I am warrior, hear me roar!
Well, actually, Miro of Warrior Poet Wisdom roared and I answered the call. The nomination call that is.
I was close to tears this week when I read Miro’s thoughtful reflection about what he phrases as my “service to others” and his reference to Poetic Parfait as “thought-provoking”. Miro presented me with The 1-in-100 Warrior Award.
I am all the more humbled by his nomination as I have admired Miro’s poetry for some time and am inspired by the life lessons he shares with readers. He reminds us to be both sincere and strong at the same time. Head over to his blog if you are not already acquainted with his work.
Thank-you my friend.
The guidelines upon receipt of said award are:
Guidelines for the 1-in-100 Warrior Award: Warriors are not motivated by awards or fame. They see awards not as an opportunity for the ego to rejoice, but rather an opportunity to honor other warrior brothers and sisters. To acknowledge and honor the rarity of the warrior, it is recommended that the recipient passes this award on to only *one* other blogger that they feel goes above and beyond to serve and inspire others, and who maintains their grace and positivity even in the face of difficult challenges, such as health issues, tragedy, injustice or loss.
I pondered the award. I thought of Lauren.
I present the Award to Lauren of LScott Poetry. I admit it, I have love for her poetry. Lauren is genuine and kind in both her poems and her comments to her readers. Her poetic words leave me thinking about the lines long after I submit my comment to her. Lauren has faced some difficult times personally and has turned her circumstances into beautiful poems. She is able to transfer thought to paper and move us along with her. For these reasons, I nominate Lauren for the 1-in-100 Warrior Award.
I hand award to her and smile.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and thank you for continuing to support me in my blogging journey. I recently bought the domain for Poetic Parfait and with that comes my intention to continue delving into poetry, chocolate, music, and friendships with you.
This is christyb, yes I mentioned chocolate again.
