I don't really think I'm ALL that Nice BUT......


my new-found friend, Jean Pierre, from Bombastic Bagman, says that I am!! He nominated me for the Nice Matters Award!! I have to say, I feel honored. For the past 8 months, my life has been filled with major ups and downs. From the highs of being more involved with my kids' lives to the lows of a horrible time at work, money issues, and now, an all-out job search, the one constant in my life has been my reading and my blog. I have met some of the nicest people that have been more than willing to lend advice, but most of all, much needed support! This says alot about this blogging community in general. I look forward to posting and reading all the different blogs that I haunt on a daily basis. I now how people that I consider "friends" world-wide! It may seem weird to some to have friends that you have never even met, but that's how I feel!! And I thank you all!

To pick out just a few, doesn't seem right. So if you are reading this, consider yourselves nominated. You are all the nicest people I have "met" in a very long time!

And if you haven't had the good fortune to meet JP, please check out his blog! He is a new blogger from Oxford, and has a great site! Great book and movie reviews from a man who knows his words!!
Later!

Well, I think I can speak for most of the rest of us when I say that we think you are very nice. Even when I can't get around to other people's blogs, you still come to mine...and that means a lot to me. If anyone deserves a nice blogger award it is you.

:D I'm so glad JP gave you this one Steph. When you left a comment on my Nice Matters post, the first thing I thought was "oh no, I forgot to put Stephanie in there!!!" Because, you're certainly in the top when it comes to the nicest bloggers I know :)

Stephanie said...

Thanks Kookie, Valentina, and Chris!! You guys, and JP, made my very stressful day!

Stephanie, you ARE a very nice person. I can vouch for that. However, I'm too nice to just pick up the award and say, "I'm nice! I'm nice!" Enjoy your award, dear heart, and please do put it on your sidebar for all to see.

Congratulations, Stephanie! You certainly deserve this award. And I feel the same as you concerning the blogging community. You people have enriched my life and I'm very thankful for it.

You're definitely nice and very deserving. The fellow who tagged you is in Oxford, England? (Remember, we have an Oxford in Mississippi - my son lives there). Cool, I've been to the English Oxford, briefly. Gorgeous place. My camera broke just as I saw where whatsisface got "dipped in Mercury" in Brideshead Revisited. How depressing is that?
