Quite surprised to find the Always Here If you Need Me award waiting in my inbox this a.m., compliments of a fellow voracious reader and writer, Julian Froment. As I have been remiss in doing my duty in the awards arena, I vow to get caught up on all of them, today! So get ready for a slew of wonderful blogs to visit!
The rules for this award are:
- Post a picture of the award somewhere on your blog.
- List 5 things that make you happy.
- Choose 3 people to nominate who have been a virtual shoulder to cry on, checked in on you when they knew things were rough, or have always been there for you.
- Comment on their blogs and let them know of the nomination.

Finding out that something I said or wrote helped someone else through a rough patch.
Having a whole day to write without having to do any pesky chores, like cooking, cleaning the bathroom, laundry…

Here are the folks that inspire, motivate and check in on me. They share the joy of triumphs, appear with hugs & hankies when heartbreak appears and never, ever, fail to truly make me Laugh Out Loud:
