I’ve decided I want to create my own form of recognition. Not linked to anyone else’s rules. Not one that requires the recipient to do anything. Just something from me to you that’s a heartfelt and sincere appreciation of the entertainment, enlightenment and empathy I’ve come to expect.
I intend posting these recommendations two or three times a week. If anyone wants to reblog please feel free. My intention is to shout from the rooftops how much I love my recommendations!!
My first recommendation is a very special lady. The first to acknowledge me on the First Fridays thread and someone who’s comments I treasure. I’m sure many of you will have basked in her glow already, Katie of Pearls and Grit.
My favourite quote from Katie’s blog is this:
Do you know how pearls are made? It’s an interesting phenomenon. Little irritants slip in between the two shells of an oyster. To protect itself, the oyster makes a special fluid, which coats the irritant. Layers upon layers of this fluid eventually build up, creating the lustrous, but not always perfectly round pearl.
I’m a pearl. You’re a pearl. Everyone can be a pearl. We take the problems that inevitably arise in life and we create something better because we’re tougher than the issues that get under our shells.
If that didn’t hook you well, how do I know you anyway?!
Here is the link to an unfailingly supportive and gracious blogger. A charming and intelligent lady. An informative and compelling writer. Please enjoy Pearls and Grit as much as I do 😊
