Imagine my surprise when I checked my email and learned author Joylene Nowell Butler (Dead Witness-2008) nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger award. I wiped the tears from my eyes as I read her words about me. Katt's Komments. Ever heard the saying that God secretly places angels on earth to make our lives better? I know it's supposed to be a secret, so let's keep it that way... but I'm pretty sure Katt Perry is one of those angels. I've chosen Katt for the Kreativ Blogger Award because of her innate ability to leave you feeling better off than you were before you read your blog. Her creativity, her love for life takes shape in her prose, those delicious little antidotes of everyday life that are food for the soul. Here's to you, Katt for making blogland a better because of you. Thank you Joy, for this amazing award. You made my day. I would like to return the favor and in turn nominate one of my very dear friends who has been an inspiration to me. by Linore Rose Burkard, author of Before the Season Ends and The House In Gosvenor Square. Taken from the jacket of her latest book, "Linore is a writer whose love of God and the Regency period shines throughout her work." She is and has always been an inspiration to me. My faith is stronger because of her. Blessings to you my sweet Linore. Once again, Joy, I thank you for this honor, and more importantly your friendship.

You are too sweet! Thank you so much, Katt. I'm honored to have been an inspiration to you. You, in turn have been an encouragement and very dear friend, to me.
Love you, lady, and I should say that I agree that your blog is very deserving of the award. Your little anecdotes ARE antidotes--to weariness or hopelessness, or just plain pessimism. You are a ray of beautiful sunshine in a sometimes dishearteningly dark world.

Thanks sweetie. I really miss you. One of the messages we heard this week was we sometimes don't know the influence we have on another persons life. I just wanted to take the opportunity to let you know.
Love you sweetie---keep in touch

Thanks for introducing me to Linore's blog, Katt. I feel the same way, I don't always remember to tell those who mean so much to me that I think they're awesome. Enjoy your award, Miss Katt. You deserve it.

Congratulations, Linore.

By todays standards I think we all just get way to busy. I try to remind myself all the time to let the people around me know how much they mean to me----while I can. The mind's going quickly----so I've got to "strike while the iron is hot"! Whatever that mean! Thanks Joy for all that you do!!!!! You ROCK!!!
