Hi Connie, I just nominated 3 people for the HUG award…I don’t know whether they’ve been nominated by others…all 3 have wonderful, courageous blogs that really meet the criteria you mention…Nancy Hatch, from Spirit Lights the Way,http://nrhatch.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/what-makes-you-you/ , Art from zendictive http://zendictive.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/reflections-of-self/ , and Marie (sufilight) from Love is the Answer http://dancewithtruth.wordpress.com/ …all 3 are truly remarkable. There are many others I could nominate to,but I’m a bit tired….I wonder what’s happening to me?….so will at least get started with those 3. What a wonderful award you have created.

      Thanks so much for notifying me of these nominations. Please let me know if they accept. Nominate as many as you want because I am sure there are a lot of folks out there who deserve it. I am so glad that our paths have crossed and that we share the same love for all humanity. Please take care of yourself and don’t push yourself too much. You’ve got to save some energy for all that creative talent you have. I am so glad you like the award. It is a “tough” award, but there are a lot of folks who live up to it, and I definitely think you are one of them. Have a good evening, Connie P.S. I am interested in a suncatcher. You can let me know later how to go about getting one.

      I am so glad that you love my blog, and I am honored to be nominated by you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks for nominating me. If you love my blog, then you are probably a person who deserves to be nominated for the Hope Unites Globally HUG Award mentioned on my site. Please consider yourself nominated by me. Read the Guidelines at http://ahopefortoday.com/2012/01/14/hope-unites-globally-hug-award-guidelines/ to know what to do to receive the award and how you can share it with others. This award is not limited to just websites and blogs. You can nominate people in your community, at your employment, or where you worship, etc. I say that it is not a “fluff” award; it is a “tough” award. Blessings, Connie

  25. Connie, you have a wonderful enlightening site here, Hope is there for all, we need now more than ever to come together in Truth, and Light, to bring together and Heal our World.. We need to spread that ripple around as we send out our positive thoughts~ as our thoughts hold such power in vibration as we start to change the frequencies around our Earth Mother… Now is the time… For we came for this time, we came to be strong.. we came to do battle.. We are the Warriors of Light working constantly behind the scenes in our own way, But we are now all being led to shine our Lights brighter and Shout our battle cries louder as we have to assist this Earth and overcome those Darker forces..
    Keep, Keeping on my Sister of Light.. for the Battle is already won,.. we just need to believe and trust again in our inner lights to guide us to all do the right thing..
    Love and Peace.. xx ~Dreamwalker xx

      Sue, Thank you so much for the encouragement. Yes, the hopes I share for all Creation are the same hopes shared by many, but they may be too steep and scare others. I hope not. I believe there are a lot of bloggers who are already doing the work, but they may not be aware of the goals they are already achieving.

      It sounds as if you share my same hopes for Creation. If no one has yet nominated you for the Hope Unites Globally HUG Award, I would like to nominate you. You can find information about it in my recent post with the title HUG Award Guidelines at http://ahopefortoday.com. I hope you will accept the award and pass it along to others you think also deserve the award. HUGS and Blessings, Connie

  26. This is a beautiful mission and much the same as mine. All I have done is taken hope and turned it into a positive action. By working within the current economy we can ultimately free ourselves from it.
