(In my haste, I consistently referred to Melinda by the name, “Melanie.” My sincere apologies to you, Melinda)
I am blessed to have been awarded Robert Goldstein’s, Respect Award, from Melinda, author of, Looking For the Light Blog .
The ‘Respect’ Award
The “Respect” Award is my personal award for fellow bloggers who consistently reach out to other bloggers, offer support, are kind, struggle to understand differences in people, and who treat themselves and other people with kindness and respect.
You don’t have to do anything for this award.
You can choose to copy the Award Picture and give the award to the people who have earned your respect or you can do nothing.
This is my way of saying thank you. You have earned my respect. – Robert Goldstein
To be awarded this is more than humbling; it’s awe-inspiring. I met Melinda a few months back, discovering that we both live in the North Texas area. We have yet to meet, personally. My sweet, dear friend is fighting a courageous battle with Lyme disease, an overwhelming case that leaves her weak, but never broken in spirit. And, it is her spirit that drew me to her blog. How can one not be drawn to a light that beams brightly? Light brings energy, guides and enlightens, and such is the life of Melinda and of the author and founder of, The ‘Respect’ Award. I encourage everyone to discover bothMelinda and Robert NOTE: Melinda has had WordPress issues and is currently attempting to navigate her blog from lookingforthelight.wp.com over to lookingforthelightblog.wordpress.com .

I can’t think of one of my followers that do not deserve to be honored. Each of you bring a joy that only YOU can deliver. I sat for a long time trying to make a decision, and in that period of time I told myself I could only choose two from over 362 of my followers. Below, you will find Ann, she is dedicated to helping those who suffer from Mental Illness. A professional counselor that hails from the Boston area of Massachusetts. Follow her positive and altruistic blog and you will discover how she illuminates the world of those she works with, as well as those who follow her blog.
Next, meet the gentleman that is dedicated to honoring all our Veterans, both within the United States, the U.K., Australia, and points beyond. Take a history lesson from each post. He is networking with other Vets and historians to bring us knowledge learned, forgotten or never made available to us before. Truly a guardian for all of those that have served their countries. I feel honored each time I see a posting from G.P.; I am more informed than ever before, and therefore, honored to acknowledge his work and the work of those who submit their stories.
Thank you to Ann, G.P., and to all of you for your support, love, and the illumination you bring to my journey. I am blessed.
