Breaking the Shameless Lions' Rules

Please see update below yesterday's text. I will be writing soon.

I'm breaking the Shameless Lions Writing Circle Rules by awarding The Roar For Powerful Words to a fourth recipient. I'm conflicted about these awards things, because it meant so much to me that Whimsy would nominate me when she did, but I don't know who's appropriate to pass it on to - when it's the feeling behind it that matters.

So this fourth Lion - I'm not even going to tell her I'm giving it to her, but I hope you will know why I am if you read her whole post What I Did For Love. That's all I'm going to say.


LION UPDATE:
Susan (author of If you're going through hell keep going - great name) WAS very happy to receive her Shameless Lions' Roar For Powerful Words Award, and I think needs and deserves our ongoing support.

I fully support the 4th award. If more awards were given more people would feel rewarded for being who they are. I went to "What I Did for Love" and it is wonderful.

Jim said...

Wonderful post and I agree. Thank you for sharing.

KD, Jim, and Dream Writer, thank you for visiting her site.

Laughingwolf, thank you for thinking that.

Merelyme, It's kind of late for me to be asking, but hoe are YOU doing today? I missed you.

Susan, you're deserving and welcome.

i am doing just fine on this monday morning. hey you changed your cat photo! and where is your little profile picture?

whimsicalnbrainpan said...

Pffft! It's your blog. You make the rules here.

+PHc said...

And I hope you're doing fine this Monday afternoon too. And that you were fine yesterday.

Yes I changed my picture of Sophia. I'm hiding behind her. She did her job posing as a Shameless Lion.

I think "nominating" the man with ALS was a really stupid mistake even though I did try to explain. But the fourth award was needed, and I'm really hoping that people in the Shameless Mood Disorder Circle will read her. She writes very well, and I'm worried about her more than anyone else. There is a typo in her URL which may be why she doesn't get linked more? It's meant to say:whengoingthroughhellkeepgoing.blogsot.com, - but says whengoingTH_OUGHhell.... I think she deserves and need some blog support.

I'll go visit you now. Someday I'll write about myself again.

Whimsy, you are such a relief in so many ways.
