Tuesday-2:45am: Liebster Award

I was nominated for the Liebster award by both Iggy and Tori. Liebster in German, means "beloved". It also means "dearest" and "favorite".

The Liebster Blog Award is designed to bring additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 200 followers. If you receive the award, you should link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate 5 more blogs. And, also, don't forget to let them know you nominated them.
First of all, you know how I love variety. I follow several types of blogs (as you can see on my blog list). For me to pick only five...well, that's why I was unable to respond right away. I don't usually do awards and then, honestly, almost all the blogs I follow have less than 200 followers! I read them all, even if I don't comment all the time on each of them. Was really difficult to decide--felt guilty--like choosing favorite children! I'm just going to post them here and hope they see this. And that all my other dear blogger friends aren't offended. Love you all!

I invite you to check these most awesome ladies out. :):)

Thank you so much for thinking of me, Rita. I'm glad we found each other's blogs! Have a great day!

Beth said...

Congratulations to a lovely lady for a well deserved award!

DJan said...

How sweet of you, Rita! Thank you for the recognition. I also follow Dee (coming home to myself) and Teresa, and I know they are wonderful blogs, so I'll go over to the other two and get to know them too.

It's a wonderful world that allows us to come together and share with one another the things that matter to us. I'm glad I found you! :-)

Toriz said...

A well deserved award! :)

Well, I obviously think so, or I wouldn't have given it to you. Right? ;)

I know what you mean about it being hard to decide. Most of the blogs I follow have more than 200 followers, but there are several with less, so deciding on just a handful of people to pass that on to wasn't easy!

I only follow one of those blogs you nominated. Will find time later to check out the others! :)

Rita said...

Teresa--You're so welcome! Yes, glad we connected online. :)

Beth--Thanks! Always love to visit with you!! :)

Djan--You're all wonderful women that I am so glad I have gotten to know. Yes, what a world, eh? That we can live all over the world and get to know each other. Who would have ever thought this 40-50 years ago!! Amazing! Glad we connected, dear lady! :)

Tori--Thanks so much! I hope you get a chance to visit the other blogs, too. Have fun packing!! :):)

Congrats on the award. :)

Serena Lewis said...

Awwwwww shucks....thanks, Rita. That was very sweet of you! I don't normally do awards on my blog but I will try and do a post soon to pass along the blog love. Much appreciated.

Love and hugs,
Serena xo

Rita said...

Iggy--Thanks so much! Have fun visiting their blogs. :)

AliceKay--Thanks! :)

Serena--I don't normally do awards or such either but this one is, as you say, passing the blog love. :) :)

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

Big Congratulations to you sweetie!!!! Very well deserved recognition and I'm glad you decided to accept!

Deanna said...

Congratulations Rita! I can't think of anyone I'd want to share an award with more! I'll check out the blogs.


Rita said...

Donna--Thanks! I decided to accept because it was spreading the blog love--even if it was hard to choose. ;)

Deanna--Same here! Thanks so much! :):)

Dee Ready said...

Dear Rita, thank you for this award. I have company and so it will take me a few days to pass the award on to others, but I'll do so as soon as I can. I greatly appreciate your support.

And thank you, too, Rita, for commenting on my postings. I value your blog because I so love cats and Karma is a real charmer and because the way you fill your days with the passion you have for paper and pens and plants and the sky and the world around you is so enticing to me.


Rita said...

Dee--You're welcome! Spread the blog love, I guess, right? :)
Thank you so much! You are so open about yourself and your life. I admire that honesty. I love people who are just themselves--take me or leave me. You write from your heart, have overcome much, and are still a positive force! That is what keeps me coming back. :):)

Dee Ready said...

Dear Rita, Thank you for "coming back" and for your comments that always seem so reflective and thoughtful to me.

I"m glad the convent story made you giggle. Tomorrow's is not so giggly! Kind of sad really.


Cowgirl Red said...

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

Congratulations on your well deserved award sweetie, wear it proud! :o)

God bless and have a terrific Thursday!

Rita said...

Dee--You're welcome. And thanks for coming back to visit me and Karma. ;)

Terah--OMGoodness! Isn't the internet something else! There are such wonderful, interesting people that you'd never have the opportunity to ever meet any other way. I feel so very fortunate, too!! :):)

Nezzy--Oh, thanks so much! So good to see you, lady! Have a great weekend. :)
