Butterfly Award

I would like to say upfront, this is a NO OBLIGATIONS award.
But I got this affirmation from Marie and it would be a bloody shame if I would not acknowledge it and publicly express my gratitude. 
Marie's Blog is here. Colour of Our Skin
If you still have not subscribed to Follow Her, you are missing a lot, IMHO.
Thank you Marie.  There is no substitute for being publicly recognized for something that you love to do.  Besides, I truly love Butterflies for what it is known for, metaphorically.
Something About Me:
Whilst I am in the business of understanding people, sometimes I think I fail miserably in avoiding the trap of wearing my heart on my sleeves.  I am too transparent.  I am unable to successfully, at all times, keep my emotions in check.  Even if I do try to look unaffected, my eyes and facial expressions are a tell-all.  So in the middle of some heavy disclosure, I work really, really hard at keeping myself from tearing up.  I am such a cry-baby.  My father's army teaching on this never really worked.  Well not with me.  He says "tears" are waste of energy.  I rationalize by saying, tears clean my eyes.
I would like to give a shout-out to all other Butterflies out there, with the hope they will find this recognition as meaningful as I did.
My Butterfly Award List:
Andrea Healing Journey
Jamie It's a Gay's Life
Just Me Just My Stories
LifeLyrics28 Life, Love and the Pusrusit of ...
Stephanie Pandora

I always read these Blogs.  They are of different types.  But they are all too human and all caring writers.  Simple thoughts and words.  Nothing fanciful or over the top.  Just great individuals and writing their thoughts down in different ways.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  I consider finding their Blogs one of life's little blessings.
I wish you peace and love, in all your days.

  8. hey there,

    just stumbled across your place here.

    i'm similar with my emotions and thoughts. if i'm conscious of it i can hide them perfectly. but on a day to day basis, yikes, my face just betrays so much. although i often think it's an energy i give out as well.

    i've fallen into hot water many times!

  9. Thank you so much. I am so grateful for you and your support, you will always have mine!

  10. Thank you so much! I am honored and grateful for your support!

  11. Well what can I say?
    Love you guys for making a difference through your Blogs and making time to visit! ♥♥♥

  12. It's so wonderful to get to know the people behind the posts. Especially when we have something in common. You can always tell what my emotions are as well, I really struggle to hide it. Which is why I never open presents in front of anyone, rarely give compliments unless they are true and sincere. I just can't fake it.


Go ahead, will Blog for comments.
