Today I was quite surprised to be nominated by Deo for the Inner Peace Award and of course I am humbled and as usual, do not feel worthy of this receiving this great honor.
His great level of integrity, his total dedication and overwhelming kindness to all that he encounters, make this particular Award very special to me.
I am humbled by Deo’s continued generosity to my little Blog and touched by his caring heart and will accept this very last for now, Award with just a bit of trepidation, for if any of you really knew me, you might question the wisdom of this particular Award being bestowed on me.
The reason that I am pointing this out to you all is my genetic make up, my ancestry:
I am of Irish, Shawnee and Prussian descent and the word “peaceful” is not normally associated with those of this particular heritage~
Yes, this is a very odd combination of ancestry to be sure, and one which would not normally lend itself to a peaceable, meek or even gentile type of personality, but one thing that it probably might help to explain, is my absolute commitment to the protection of animals placed in danger by Humans on this planet.
What some, or all of you know, is that Awards come with a price, they require quite a bit of time to fulfill, if they are to be done correctly.
As you may have read on this Blog in the past few days, my partner is dealing with some serious health issues and they will require us to be away repeatedly, to take care of, until September.
So, with this in mind, I pray that you can all understand why more Awards being given to my Blog right now, will put even more pressure and stress on me, at a time when I will not be able to give them the full attention that they require to complete them.
As for now, until he is finished with his appointments in September, please bestow your wonderful Award nominations on other Bloggers here on Word Press, there are thousands of them here who are so very deserving and would be quite thrilled to be nominated for them.
I will in the next few days, or just as soon as possible, be adding the names here of those who are my choices for this prestigious Inner Peace Award.
My Nominees will be here very soon………….
Your patience is appreciated in this, as we prepare for yet another Hospital visit.
A Nominee Update July 8, 2013
We finally have a handle on our Hospital trips, so with a brief respite or break this week , I will try to catch up on WP things, so as promised, here are my nominees for this prestigious Inner Peace Award:
As with the most generous Deo, who graciously nominated me for this Award, you are all peacemakers in your own right, you are all quite different, but you share a common goal, the search for peace.
Congratulations to all of you and may God Bless each of you for your warm, compassionate hearts.
And finally, I truly hope that you all understand my reasoning for this decision about any future Awards and will forgive me and continue to pray for our ongoing health issues.
Awards are not my reason for being here, protecting animals is.
You will be in my heart and my mind as we take this journey and important animal related Issues will continue to be posted here as they arise.
Bless you all for your continuing care and concern,
Donna and Walkingfox
