this one means a lot

It's always so nice when someone gives you an award, isn't it? But this one, for some reason, is just really special to me, most especially coming from Nymeth. She is someone I've come to absolutely adore, as she is without question one of the nicest people on the planet. And I admit, I sometimes wonder if she thinks me quite the dork after some of the comments I leave her. You know, she said something in talking about this award that rang so true to me, and I imagine it does to a lot of others..."sometimes wondering if the comments I leave are too long, too short, too bland, too cheerful, not cheerful enough, irrelevant, annoying, etc." I try to tell myself when I'm commenting that as long as I'm sincere in what I say, that's the best I can do. If people think I'm an idiot, well so be it.

Anyway, I'm now to pass this award on to seven people. I know, only seven?!! Isn't that cruel? Because each and every comment is appreciated! Be they from someone who pops in once in a lifetime, once a week, or for every single boring post I write. But I will follow the rules and pick seven. Seven people, who when I click that "comments" link and see their names, I know my day will be a bit brighter. Brighter because they are always supportive, always have the sweetest things to say, always manage to put a smile on my face. Nymeth, Melody, Dawn, Chris, J.Kaye, Carl, and Eva.

Yeah, seven really wasn't enough.

Congrats on the award! Your comments always make my day, debi!

Dawn said...

Aw, Debi thank you. You are one of my first blogging friends and I am so glad to have met you. :) I look forward to reading your comments as well. I like the comment on the comments that you shared. It's so true!

I think it was you, who maybe last year, shared the book Christmas Jars. (I get all my book reviews from you LOL!) I just read it last night and really liked it!!! If it wasn't you that mentioned it you would enjoy it. It's a very very quick read and just makes you feel good about people!

take care,

This award IS a really special one--and you deserve it (which is why you should take a looksie here) :) Have a great day Debi!

Nymeth said...

Debi, you are just too sweet! YOU are one of the nicest people on the planet. And no, I don't think you're quite the dork...I love your comments. I really do.

Being sincere in our comments is indeed all we can do, but that doesn't stop me from worrying a bit sometimes. I love commenting and interacting with others, but it can be a little hard for me. Even though all I'm doing is sitting at my desk typing, commenting and blogging is "putting myself out there", and I'm not someone who normally does that easily. I like to think that I'm a bit less awkward and introverted online, but I still have to step out of my comfort zone sometimes. The great thing is that doing it has been extremely rewarding, and I've come to think of many bloggers (you included, of course) as old friends I feel totally at ease with :)

I'm the one who sounds like a total dork, aren't I? :P

Debi said...

"I'm the one who sounds like a total dork, aren't I?"...definitely not! If so, then I guess we're just dorks together. :)

Debi said...

Thanks, and ditto!

You are so welcome! Yep, you're one of my first blogging friends, too. And though I understand how things get mighty busy for you during the school year, I always miss it when you don't post as often.
And guess what, it wasn't me! But now you've gone and added another read to my wish list!

Thank you! You most definitely deserve it, too...which of course is why you've received it at least three times already! :)

J. Kaye Oldner said...

This is really unexpected! Thank you, Debi. I agree with Nymeth though. This award is perfect for you! :)

J. Kaye Oldner said...

P.S. Don't you just love the little!

Debi said...

It shouldn't be unexpected! You always say the sweetest things, and leave me with a little extra bounce in my step. And that's exactly the criteria I used when picking who to give it to.

Chris said...

Debi, You're so incredibly sweet for giving me this award :) I really think that this is the most meaningful award I've ever gotten! I feel the same way every time I get a comment from you...It makes me happy just to see your name on my blog :) It's coming right back to you again whenever I get my post up!

Melody said...

Debi, congrats on the award! You know I always look forward to reading your comments on my blog! They always make my day. :D

And thank you so much for passing this award to me! It really means a lot to me! :)

Eva said...

Awwwww: thanks so much! You're definitely one of my supercommenters. :D
