The Respect Award

The “Respect Award” is a personal award, made by Robert Goldstein for fellow bloggers who consistently reach out to other bloggers, offer support, are kind, struggle to understand differences in people, and who treat themselves and other people with kindness and respect.  We Hold These Truths to Be Self Evident/Blackbutterfly7, has received the Respect Award from Horty of It is What it Is.  Thank you, my dear friend.  I am honored. This award is very special.

You can choose to copy the Award Picture and give the award to the people who have earned your respect or you can do nothing. This is a way of saying thank you. I am truly honored to receive this award and it gives me joy to pay it forward.

At 4 p.m. yesterday, I went through “My Beautiful Community” and got the URLs for all the bloggers with the exception of two that I already know have award free blogs, and two that have already received the award.

Please receive this award as a token of my respect and appreciation for your support.

        • Butterflydreamer, I’m so happy to see you. I hope that all is well with you now.

          Remember BlushedBrown? Her computer was fried when lightning hit the electric to her house. I hear from her from time to time and she misses blogging. Many people are having problems after upgrading to Windows 10. There are some bloggers who were not able to blog because of computer problems or Windows 10. My computer became sick last year, and I bought one with Windows 10 and took it back to the store. It was horrible.

          Hopefully, the bad time for computers is over.

    • You are welcomed, Fonz. It’s a joy meeting you and getting to know your blog. When accepting awards, I’m always afraid of leaving someone out that deserves it, so this time, I used the gravatars appearing under “My Community.” It shows the gravatars of those who have commented and/or clicked like. Supporting other bloggers is a requirement of the award, and appearing under My Community shows support. I thank you for your support. You deserve it.
