Sunday Spotlight: May 26, 2013

If you are just visiting for the first time, it is that time of week when I say a particular thank you to one of my readers acknowledging them for something thoughtful, inspiring, or mindful that they have said in one of their comments. It is not just about flattery [although that is nice sometimes too ;-) ]; it is about walking away from the comment and wanting to touch on and explore an idea they have presented.  Sometimes it might just be one or two words that they have said that reaches out and elicits a response in me.  

As a way of saying thanks, I will present this person with an advanced copy of a freebie that I promise, no one else will be able to get their hand on for at least three months and possibly longer.  Of course it might take awhile, I'm currently about seven behind, although technically five remain unclaimed.  One of them might just be you so don't forget to check each Sunday if you are in the habit of leaving comments.  Oh and only only about four of 113 eligible people from two weeks ago requested their freebies.  Now the bulk of those are people who were strictly over here on DT duties and will probably never read a Sunday Spotlight post; however, there are at least 20 or 30 regulars that I expected to see ask for it.  So, check and see if your name is on that list. Go HERE to check.

So without further ado, the comment I'm highlighting and reflecting on this week belongs to...

Lisa, you are truly one amazing and inspirational person and I would love to meet you in person! I just cant get my head around how you manage to keep tabs of everything in blog land and then also spend so much time to honour everyone but yourself. You definitely need truck loads of recognition. Thank you for being the amazing caring and sharing person you are. Hugs Desíre {Doing Life – my personal blog} on Sunday Spotlight: May 12, 2013

Okay, I admit it.  This one was strictly picked by my ego.  Aren't warm fuzzies wonderful to experience?  I am fortunate that I receive them often in one form or other from my many wonderful readers.  This one just really called to me.  It is nice to know that I continue to inspire some of you out there.  That is one of my goals and apparently I'm meeting it.  Additionally, Desire touches on something else that is important to me--honouring you guys for the successes you achieve.  Remember those warm fuzzies I talked about?  Well, everyone deserves them and that is why I work so hard to acknowledge as many of you as I can each month.

So, thanks Desire and so many of you out there for noticing the hard work I put into this blog, bringing you the kinds of features you like to see.  Oh and Desire, who knows?  If I ever come into a few million dollars maybe I will make it half way around the world so that we can meet in person.  It would certainly be a privilege to do so.

Honourable mentions include:

  • I've took a bit of a break away from the computer as I have been very tired this last week so I have lot of catching up to do. I wanted to just say how wonderful it is that you and Karen have been able to make this connection, certainly better later than never! Families and relationships are not always easy and many of us have chequered pasts but how you go one in the future is so important. You are both forging ahead with a very strong relationship and I am sure you will be a very big part of each other's lives for the rest of your days. (((Big Hugs))) and lots of love Mandy xxx on Motivational Monday: In the Book of Family a New Chapter Has Begun 

Thank you everyone for your continued support of my blog.  Please know just how much all your comments mean to me.   Always know that I read every single one and respond when I can. Without you spending some of your valuable time coming over and leaving me comments, there would no incentive to continue doing what I'm doing!  So as always, thanks from the bottom of my heart for your continued support. 

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!

Until next time,

Once again you outdid yourself with your latest spotlight post and I am truly honoured to have been in the spotlight and am still blushing as I am definitely a background girl lol.

It's more than deserving that you take the time to pat yourself on the back! Absolutely you are worthy of this recognition as you do so much for others and ask little or nothing for yourself. It's wonderful to see that so many people are aware of your hard work and that they leave such accolades of appreciation for you!
Congratulations to Desire for being selected. That was a very touching comment she left.
Happy Memorial Day weekend, Original.
