You Don't Say?!

My friend Kaye at The Road Goes Ever On has been one of my absolute favorite bloggers since I joined this bloggy community just a few short months ago. Visiting her blog is one of the high points of my daily routine because I still love to look at her banner as it opens. If you haven't been there, I really suggest a visit, and you'll see what I'm talking about! And, of course, I'm not there just to gaze at her beautiful banner but I often find something to comment on after reading one of her posts.

So imagine my surprise when she left a message in one of her comments on my blog that she had a surprise for me. When I dropped by to visit, there in one of her Thesaurus Thursday posts was an award for me in appreciation of my comments. Take a look:



Isn't it beautiful?! And Kaye wrote:

"This cute award is for beautiful people who practice blogging etiquette by visiting or visiting back, and leaving comments. Their observations are apt and helpful and it's a pleasure to have them comment on your posts..."

I couldn't have said it better. As anyone who owns a blog knows, the comments we receive are very important to us. They often give us inspiration and encouragement. I love writing here and I suppose I would continue even without comments but I'm not certain of that. So now I want to pass this award on to eight of my bloggy friends whose comments I look forward to daily and whose opinions and thoughts are greatly valued. Thank you all for time and energy.

Please stop by and check out these very special bloggers and see why I think they are all so terrific.

And thanks, Kaye!!

Aw, thanks for the shout out! And now I am off to check Kaye out, because anyone who has a regular feature called Thesaurus Thursdays is definitely worth a visit!

Thank you so much Sandy. Comments are the best part of blogging.

Thank you Sandy! I do love to visit and leave comments. Summer has taken a toll on how often I've been able to get around to everyone. I am hopeful that when school starts back (even though I'm not looking forward to that!) I'll be visiting everyone more frequently.
Like Tammy, I'm intrigued with your friend. Off to check her out.
