Reader's Love and appreciation


It's been at least three weeks since I wrote my last post on this Blog, and to be honest, I miss writing, but I also miss connecting with all of you. I have tried many times, to put some energy into this Blog again, but I couldn't manage it, although I do have few posts "on hold" in the draft folder.

Today I am forcing myself into it again hoping it will help to distract me from my thoughts and fears. I have felt lonely without you all, my friends.

On my last post, I was nicely surprised to be nominated by Rhonda who is author, writer, poet and publisher on her blog OEBooks RYCJ for the Tell Me About Yourself Award and by a great Poet on his Blog Gray Poet for the Beautiful Blogger Award .


The rules for both awards is firstly to link to the blogs that have granted the award, reveal 7 things about yourself, and nominate 7 new Bloggers for the award.

I choose today to reveal 7 things that make me cry, and 7 things that make me smile.



7 things that make me cry:


  1. I cry at ALL weddings, mainly when I look at a bride. It has nothing to do with my own wedding, because it is something that happens since my childhood.
  2. I cry when I hold a little baby in my arms. This also happened with my own children when I was alone with them. I avoid holding babies now :(
  3. I cry whenever I see children performing something they have learned to do, like playing music, dancing, sports, etc.. For example, I cry at First Communion Ceremony, school end of year ceremony etc..
  4. I cry whenever I try to sing, whatever song it is, although singing has always been my dream, my favourite dream.
  5. I cry when I feel loved, when I receive a message of love, a hug, a thought, a smile.
  6. I cry when I feel that someone is upset with me, especially when I don't know how I have hurt them.
  7. I cry when I see an act of kindness and can read gratitude in the people's eyes.

7 things that make me smile:

  1. I smile at the world: everyone I meet as I go about my daily life, whether I know them or not because a smile brightens the day for me, but also for them.
  2. I smile when I'm expecting something and it happens the way I expected it.
  3. I smile whenever I feel appreciated for something I have done or said
  4. I smile when I feel understood
  5. I smile when someone is laughing
  6. I smile at someone's crying, not as a judgement but only a comforting smile, a smile that says "its OK, all will get better and better".
  7. I smile now at each and everyone of you reading this post

Since I have been nominated before for the Beautiful Blogger Award, and have already nominated others to receive it, I choose today to nominate 7 new Blogs that I never mentioned before.

7 blogs I would like to nominate for the Tell Me About Yourself Award:

    1. You REALLY cry and smile at the same things???? That comforts me!!! I thought something must be wrong with me :)
      I love writing, but I can only write what I really feel and think. That's the problem :( I don't want my writing to be like a diary where I only complain.

  6. So good to hear from you, and congratulations on the awards, Nikky! I have missed you, but please don't feel like you have to write if it is draining or too hard. Do what is best for you.

  7. So glad to see you posting Nikky, you never know how you have been missed without someone to remind you. I smile to see your comments on my blog and wanted you to know you deserve the awards and I hope that you will find the inspiration to continue to bless us with your words. In regard to #5 in the things that make you cry, I am sorry for making you cry often, because I can't always keep my feelings to myself. For all the smiles and thoughts as you comment, know that you are getting those in return. Charles 'Gray Poet'

  14. Keep writing. It's a mechanism for healing. Even it you don't blog, write. You have the makings of a memoir and a story worth telling.

    Congrats on your award also.
