This is not a ritual post for a Award acceptance but a note of remembrance and regret. About a year back I was nominated for this award by one of my Blogger friend/Follower Penny L Howe . On early days when my Blog was new and not much popular, she was one of those who encouraged, inspired me and as a result this nomination came from her in my favor. It was her greatness and a act of her kindness to support and inspire me.
Those days I was not much aware of Blog awards. In fact I was little bit of against of these awards. More over those days nominating 10/15 blogger was a tough and time consuming job for me. For these reasons, I could not accept it by heart and comply the award rules. In the burgain, I was unfortunate to miss the very first Blog Award. Later, when nominations started pouring in, I reluctantly changed my mind to go with the Blogger friends and started accepting the Awards. This way I missed the very first nomination from Penny L Howe.
Today when I see the Awards in my possession, the very first nomination comes to my mind and I feel sorry for not accepting the award.
Ms. Penny is a talented and gifted writer and thinker. Her blog “The why about this” is highly recommended to follow.
However, a big thanks to Penny L Howe for her support, encouragement and inspiration bestowed on me.
