The Bloggers of the World Award, originally awarded by Cojito at the blog, Life, way back at the turn of the year, has made its way around the globe to little old me, by way of wonderful Cathy at A Bit of the Blarney!
I apologize to Cathy for taking so long to post this honor. The world (my world) has rather gotten away from me lately! But, I appreciate this award in a special way, truly, because it's the last one I would have expected to get!
I'm contentedly provincial, very untraveled, especially planted in one spot. The farthest I have ever traveled is Spain, and that's only because I was a Navy baby, born where my Dad happened to be stationed at the time. I was back in the states again before I was two years old, lived between Maryland and South Carolina for the next twelve years, and ventured west with the family when I was fourteen, when my Dad retired.
Many happy memories and many of our extended family members still live in the southeast, but I consider myself a Coloradan. I love this place. I love it because it's where I learned to drive a car, where I grew to be an adult, where I met my husband, where my children were born. I love it for its rugged history and I love its incredible natural beauty. Anyone who's ever been here knows that Colorado is God's country.
Or, well, at least it's my country.
It's become a part of my identity, being a Coloradan. So, if a sense of place makes you a Blogger of the World, I think that might be something I do have. Thank-you, Cathy!
And, I pass the baton on to:
Ann at A.R.T. Servant, because, as a military Mom, her heart is all over the world,
Margaret at Minnesota Mom for her sense of place,
and Marie at Big is Beautiful because she lives clear around the world from me in Australia, but her concerns are close to home.
