         Patty of  http://petitemagique.wordpress.com  created this award, and she wrote: “… because I wanted to do something special for my friends on WordPress.” Thank you, Patty, for this beautiful award and the extra special effort you invoked to create this beautiful, personalized award! You are so sweet!  I am so touched by the uniqueness of your creation! You certainly took an important idea–love crystals–from my poems and crafted an exquisite award. I am so honored and touched by your insight and thoughtfulness!

This description was written by Patty of http://petitemagique.wordpress.com:   Semper Fidelis is Latin and means Always Loyal. Loyalty means the world to me. I am very loyal myself, but I’ve got major trust issues as well. And I think trust is very important if you are sharing so much of yourself with people you meet through the internet. So I am working on that! :)  Why the wolves? Because wolves have very strong ties with their pack. Like a family or a great group of friends. And I just love them! This award stands for the loyalty and love between friends.

The Rules:

  • Add the Semper Fidelis Award logo somewhere on your blog.
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Nominate 5 bloggers who’s loyalty and friendship you value and you consider being part of your ‘pack of wolves’ on WordPress.
  • Post something special for each one of your nominees  and dedicate it to them. This can be a quote, saying, poem, picture, anything you think that would fit that person.
  • Let the nominees know that you’ve nominated them.

I am very grateful to Patty of http://petitemagique.wordpress.com for her award to me!

My pack of wolves are: :)

Celestine is the Queen of Haiku from the country of Ghana, on the West coast of Africa. She is now published! Celestine has a gentle heart that is filled with warmth and joy…reflected in her writings and her dear correspondence with me.  I am so happy to know her! When I read the quote below, I thought of Celestine, because she is a courageous woman. She believes in her writing and she always goes forward. She finds a way to succeed!

Gyslaine is a  beautiful poet from France,  whose gentle words have healed me. This quote makes me think of her because despite challenges in her life, she goes forward and towards life.  She inspires me to do the same:

M Murali Mohan, from India, cares about all of us!  He shares his knowledge of the law on his blog. He shares his understanding of human life. He shares the deep wisdom of his beliefs. He is always a faithful reader of my writings–this encourages me so much to keep writing…and gives me purpose to live.

Paul hails from the East Coast of the USA. His poetry delves into many different topics –it is profound! He encourages me by reading my blog. Seeing his icon there makes all the difference to my day of writing.  He has taught me to write because it is important for me to express myself…not to impress my readers.  He has taught me to write for myself through his own example.

Shaun, a writer from Scotland, is a man who faces each day with courage despite the constant pain his body gives him.  He is a brave man, caring husband to his wife and a wise father to his children. He thinks deeply about the world and all of us in it. He goes beyond the walls of his home and is open to all people and encourages us along the way to keep writing, to continue to be our best selves, and to never ever give up.

Hunter S. Thompson

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

Clanmother, from Vancouver, impresses me because her blog shows that she appreciates the beauty of the world in which she has found herself.  Her blog is filled with the beauty of so many artists –she appreciates the creativity she finds around herself. Her writing moves me to think beyond myself and her presence is often found on my blogs, giving my writing her confirmation…which is so encouraging to me.  She seems to be a person who is constantly engaged with life and goes forward into it with joy.  Recently, she jumped into recycling and is asking us to join in her conversation about sharing food with each other in her blog, “taking the kitchen.” Her openness to transitions in life encourages me to go forward in my own life.

http://petitemagique.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/semper-fidelis-award.jpg

Sheri, from the USA, is a woman who goes the extra mile…hundred miles…thousands of miles! When I read of her support to her husband and how she bravely fights for him and his health…how she willing faces those who would deny him help…I see her inner strength and unconditional love for the man she married. She is a woman of great determination and courage. In between all of that, she still takes time to read others’ blogs and give her comments…all of which takes precious time.  Sheri is a person who genuinely cares about all of us.

Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.

YES—you have just been nominated for the award you created!  I have nominated you for the SEMPER FIDELIS AWARD! I think the following should enable you to find the image of the award:

http://petitemagique.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/semper-fidelis-award.jpg

Patty, from Holland, impresses me because she is herself in her writing and on her blog.  When she is happy, we know it.  When she is struggling, we know it.  She is fully human and is not afraid to be who she is…she writes who she is.  Patty’s total honesty encourages me to be honest in my writing. On top of all that, as busy as she is, working on her new publication, her triology on dragons…she still has time to visit and encourage me in my writing.  She also is my sister of the universe–Patty encourages me to be strong and to continue to live each day!  Patty lives the quote despite any obstacles in her way–and helps me to do the same!

Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.

  4. I may have made a boo boo. I tried to highlight Dank je wel
    to use Bing Translate to see if it was Swedish or Danish or Norwegian or Dutch or Flemish or? Anyway I was immediately bumped to a copy write warning. So it does work, if you wondered. But I don’t know if there are consequences. Sorry if I made a mess.

    Are the monsters in your back biting you? I look forward to reading more of your heartfelt, most interesting and well crafted posts.

    Thank you for all that you have done …. Bear

  5. You are so kind with your words and praise, Bear! Thank you for your compliment –touches my heart! Patty’s blog: http:petitemagique@wordpress.com is written both in Dutch, Patty’s home is Holland, and in English. She has written a fantastic blog! I am not worried at all about any possible “mess”–smile—I am thinking that I should NOT have used copyscape—after all. I feel the words I write are the result of my experience with humankind…so WHY do I have to protect anything I write—it is for all of us because so many people’s influence on me have created the writings! Thank you for visiting, Bear!

  7. Jane – Congratulations on your own award. You are so deserving many times over. I will do my best to honor the award and share it with others. Often it’s hard to trust but feel I must carry on with Tom’s and my journey. Unconditional love has carried us through many dark and lonely days – primarily when I’m fighting the system and he’s suffering needlessly. I have one of those situations going on at the present time. Without a doubt, we’ll get to the bottom of this crisis. I will not watch him suffer needlessly. You are an inspiration to others also. Thank you again.

  8. Sheri~ I know what the medical system is like..I experienced it with my Mom after her stroke…painful, painful, painful–some day I will write about it…still too hard. We had each other for 60 years–and I know I should be grateful–it is longer than most have…and I am grateful…but I miss her tremendously! Then what my brother went through–and my hands were tied…too much suffering in this world. I send YOU lots of love crystals to help you through whatever it is you are experiencing now…so sorry!
