Butterfly Light Award

Blackbutterfly7 has been honored with the Butterfly Light Award. In passing on this nomination, Horty wrote:

“Xena loves butterflies. So, who else would be a great recipient of this beautiful creation? She’s a wonderful human being who champions causes that are fought in the legal arena. She works continuously and keeps us informed of events that may otherwise be forgotten. She literally “fights” for the underdog and those affected by miscarriages of justice in spite of the many attacks that she finds herself under.

My wish is to “see” her smile when she reads this post. “

I did smile, and I also shed tears. This is a very humbling honor. The entire concept of caterpillars to butterflies is what inspired the title of this blog. It blesses my heart to see others inspired by that concept. Read the rest of this entry

8054-2There are various thoughts about angels in theology and myths. Personally, I believe that angels are those who are of the same spirit/motivation, who minister positive messages or positive actions to the lives of others. “Positive” can be defined as whatever is necessary and needed for any individual at any given time that gives or adds to their life, joy, peace.

Imagine my surprise when Horty passed the Angel Award to Blackbutterfly7!!  It is humbling to be honored by one’s peers.

Bloggers For Peace

Patty of petitemagique writes every month for Bloggers for Peace.  This month, she asks that we inspire someone.

Every month I make a post for Bloggers for Peace. Just to take a moment to think about the importance of it.

This month I decided to ask you all to INSPIRE someone.

Inspiration can be a great way to accomplish dreams and feel better.

Everyone needs motivation. To help them through rough times or to do something they want, but maybe never thought they could.

To inspire someone is a gift to someone and to yourself.”


I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have inspired me by giving of themselves. Read the rest of this entry

Semper Fidelis Award


Thank you to Dr. Rex (Horty) of It Is What It Is for this award that signifies loyalty and love between friends.  I am honored that Horty considers me  worthy of this award and as her friend.Friendship1

In the words of this Award’s creator:

The Semper Fidelis Award

“I created this award because I wanted to do something special for my friends on WordPress. 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. Read the rest of this entry



blog of the year 6 stars

Nominated by:

Dr. Rex


Dr. Rex has written:

There are so many wonderful blogs and writers out there. Some I follow and others I see through reblogs. There’s an incredible wealth of knowledge, information, facts, interesting stories, humor, celebrations, shared feelings and personal stories. We post and we share. We create bridges, we tear walls down. We connect!! We create friendships.

She expresses my thoughts and experience.  In passing on nominations today, Dr. Rex came up with a great idea.  I am adopting that in passing on this award to whomever has been previously nominated and needs another star.


Blackbuttery7 has received its 5th star for the Blog of the Year, 2013, award.  Our 5th star is presented by Dr. Rex (Horty)

It is indeed an honor to be recognized by peers. We each understand and appreciate what is required to blog, and we share our love in doing so.  I am so honored and humbled to be a part of a blogging community, sharing the same interests in equality for all.

I now pass the nomination to Caleb G. of

Diversity if BeautifulDiversity is Beautiful


Since accepting the nomination and passing it on to nominees, Blackbutterfly7 has received two stars for a total of four.  When we accepted the nomination, I inadvertently forgot that Blackbutterfly7 had already received two stars and did not inform the nominees that the two stars were passed on to them.  Thus, Blackbutterfly7 now has 3 stars to pass on to nominees.

I now pass the nomination, with 3 stars, to Caleb G. of


It is a great honor for Blackbutterfly7 to accept nomination for this award.  It means so much to me, to BlushedBrown as a contributing author, and for those who work behind the scenes to make this blog possible.

In July 2012, Jim and Mindyme62 of the Yahoo Group Blackbutterfly768, encouraged me to look into opening a blog.  On August 1, 2012, Blackbutterfly7 was born with the publishing of our “About” page.  The popularity and success of this blog has been mainly by word-of-mouth.  Therefore, we share this nomination for Blog of the Year with all of our supporters.
