Shelia at Black Tennis Pro certainly lifted my spirits today, when I read that she shared with me and worthy others the “Sharing The Love” award.
Shelia, you are a beautiful spirit, thanks for sharing your love.
The “Sharing The Love “Award, was created by Blogger Crystal at “Memoirs Of A Mommy” blog, in honor of the donor who saved her one month old life a year ago. Crystal’s son Noah celebrated his first birthday this week thanks to someone whose final gift was the gift of life.
In Crystal’s own words, here are the rules of the Share the Love Award:
“Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog.
**All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipient to do the same**
As you may have recently seen on my side bar, I have finally created a custom blog award!! I have wanted to do this for a long time but never came up with something that “fit”. I didn’t want just anything. It had
to be something that meant something to me. And what could mean more than Sharing the Love by giving you pieces of my heart??
So I created this award in Honor Of The Donor That Saved Noah’s Life. I share this award with those of you whose love and friendship have enriched my life and made my world a better place.I hope by passing this award around the blogging world we can all help raise awareness of the need for Organ Donation.”
I am in great company, sharing this award with:
We Need To Stop
The Old Black Church
and would love to share this love by passing on this award to the following sites
