Proximity award



Thanks artnavy for awarding me. I was touched by its content/intent. You've been very kind to think of bestowing it to me.

This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

I now pass on this award to

1.Tys on ice who is an all time favorite.

2.Venki who seems to have forgotten his 'nani'.

3.Joy who takes time out to read my sermons tho' she belongs to my daughter's generation!!

4.Hillg'mom for being a good friend.

5.ITW for being the charming mother of not one but two 'little delights'.

6.Rajani for her Jamshedpur connection which automatically makes me biased towards her.

7.Preethi who doesn't know how much I enjoy her posts that take me back to the time I was a young mother.

8.Prats for the same reason as Preethi.

This award definitely belongs to you HHG. You write so well and certainly gives a different dimension to thoughts.

Preethi said...

Thanks so much HHG.. I am thrilled by what you say about me and my blog!! I do love your charming and well written posts.. like Prats say they do ooze sensibility.. and that's one of the things that draws me here.

Joy said...

HHG, I can't help laughing regarding what you have written about me. As you might have heard, sermon is sweet when it does NOT come from own's mother or teacher :) :) So I read and hear every word of your posts.

As many have already mentioned, your blogs are truly inspiring and remind us of basic human nature which are so important yet get lost in this hurry-burry life.

Congratulations on a well deserved award and I am honored. Thank you.

And let me tell you that it feels wonderful.The proximity award is just about that.Though I mentioned 8 of you i feel close to each and everyone including srijith,just like that,has to be me and gauri who seem to be rather busy.thanks one and all.
