Best Moment Award






I can’t beat Michael Jackson’s speech, I’m sure. But while his speech is full of gratitude, mine is full of emotions. This is my best moment. This is the best award I’ve got and I’ll tell you why.

I’ve got several awards as a blogger as you can see on my right side bar – never mind that I only started blogging seriously in July last year (2012). All the awards I received were awarded to me as one blogger comparable to the rest, and I am so happy with that. But for the first time, My Best Moment Award did not only award me as a blogger. It tells me why I deserve the award and which of my posts made it for me. And I totally agreed with the award. My Sharing with Terry was indeed my best post and I really did my best to write it as I was struggling from too much emotions. I may not have written the best content and the best story in this post but it was my emotions which wrote the story entirely. My eyes were never dry when I wrote it.

The author of Moment Matters blog must be a very keen observer and diligent reader. I went over the choices and they are all excellent and exceptional. When other award-giving entities or mechanisms may just put in their close blogging buddies for convenience, this one I assure you was very well thought out, no disrespects to the others. I love all of them though. (These are Maxim’s words.)

Maxim, a dear blogging friend of mine has nominated me for this award. I had never heard of it. All I know is my eyes began to water as I accepted this. To know that I move people to tears as they read some of my posts causes deep feelings to stir within my heart.

I always try to speak from my heart and show. I really don’t know how else to write. Maxim, all I can say is a big thank-you. I will treasure this always.

Many blogs touch my heart also as I read them. One blogger that touched me every time I read her post was my dear friend Sara. Sara took her life last month as she could no longer fight. I miss you so much my friend. I hope you are at peace now.

Blogs that I would like to recognize are all of them, but I don’t have enough room so I have to pick a few for now.

The Best Moments Award

Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time.
