It also represents to you the qualities of the giver. It took his time and effort. It is shared by a ‘giving spirit.’
No amount of money, size or wrapping of the gift tells its value. Accept it for its meaning. Friendship is a bond of great strength.
These words tell how I feel so honored to receive the nomination for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from Roberto Alberghetti. Immediately I sent a personal ‘thank you’ to give me time to digest the rules. I know he deserves his nomination because in these few months of blogging, he has become a valued friend. His talent shared with the world seems unmatched. I accept this nomination with humility.
