The Lucky 4 Gifts for The Diary

e were created with gifts and those are the things that can really inspire us in some small or big ways. The gift of life and love are the paramount examples. Some of them we receive through good relationship with friends and loved ones, undeniable skills and talents and some we receive through material stuff. For me, everything I obtain from anyone – big or small – I’ll wholeheartedly accept it. And that’s exactly what just happened for the past few days.

Just recently, I opened my email inbox and to my surprise, I got four nominations for these particular awards from the following people who truly inspire me. My nephew, Kevin also celebrated his 4th Birthday on that very same day. I just said to myself, “Alright, my number 4, here you go again.” When I received them, it seemed my happiness leaped to the highest intensity. It reminds me of the time when my nephew got his birthday gift from us, he seemed very, very happy and to tell you, no one can touch his gifts except him. Now I can’t believe I’m doing the same thing! I’m just kidding. 🙂

     

  

I just want to express my huge appreciation to Amy of The World Is A Book for nominating me for the Inspiring Blog Award, to Raven of the Raven’s Witch for the Beautiful Blogger Award, to Nizy of the Nizy’s Life Compendium for the Super Sweet Blogging Award and to the Chronicles of Bad Times for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. You are the best bloggers I have ever known and I’m glad and honored you’ve found this diary as one the bests as well. Thanks for the gift of friendship and for making this blog possible.

    1. It’s amazing, right? 🙂 It’s so overwhelming. Thanks to you because you’re one of these amazing people who humbly nominated me. So glad you enjoyed it as well. Thank you, Amy. 🙂

    1. Yes, number 4 really works for me and I’m glad to know it’s your favorite, too. When I was five or six, I used to eat cookies with milk for breakfast. Now that I’m old enough, I added cake to my favorites. 🙂

  1. I am constantly grateful and amazed that you read the things I posted on my blog and find it ”Very Inspiring”, so to be in anyone’s thoughts and awarded anything at all is indeed an honor. Thank you so so very much again for nominating me and congratulations for your award. Well deserved. I enjoyed reading this post, You did an excellent job!

  2. Mack, congratulations on all four, very much deserved awards!
    Again, I am honored by you nominating Things I Want To Tell My Mother for the Super Sweet Blogger Award. My mother–if it weren’t for the dementia–would especially enjoy this…and she would invite you over for pineapple butter cookies and a big hug. Thank you from both of us, Mack.

    1. It’s so nice of you, Marylin. I’m very humbled. Nominating your blog is my big pleasure. I could get a lot from each of your posts and it inspires me in many ways and I thank you for that.

      Your mother is wonderful. Please send my regards to her. I would love to come over for for butter cookies and a hug!:)
      You always take care and God Bless!
