Thank You


Trish from The Coffee Shop, Shari from The Daily Three and Coffee Mom from Life of a Coffee Addicted Mother have all honoured me with “The Nice Matters Award.”

Thank you very much, ladies.

This is somewhat overwhelming.

And so, I’m thinking….if three people had the same thought, it’s got to be true.

Never mind my post of June 24th entitled “Truth” where I ranted about what I considered the lifelong curse of being labeled “nice” (and “sweet”).

The verdict is in. I am nice.

And when I read the description regarding this a
ward, I feel flattered and touched to have blogging friends who believe so.



The Nice Matters Award is given to “…those bloggers who are nice people, good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence in our blogging world.”

I am now supposed to pass this award on to 7 other bloggers.

I’d love to but unfortunately, I don’t know any nice bloggers….

JUST KIDDING.

Seriously, I just can’t do it. One, three, five, seven people….any number is a killer for me. I cannot choose. My sincere apologies.

So, I’m flaunting tag/award rules for the umpteenth time – and henceforth will probably be banned from the entire award process.

Every blogger on my link list, every blogger I read, every blogger who leaves a comment (and even those bloggers who regularly visit but don’t comment) – you are all NICE.

Well, I happen to think so. You all certainly “inspire good feelings” in me.

Consider yourself awarded. Feel free to post this image on your blog.

But, hey, if you’re actually not nice (and you know if you are or not) I suggest you don’t post it.

You will risk a not-so-nice curse for doing so.

Thanks - what a lovely (nice) thing to say! ;)

kristi:
Your blog is a pleasure to read.
Glad I found you - or that you found me? Can't remember the sequence. (I'm getting older...the memory is going...)

patricia said...

Awwwww...ain't that nice? Congrats!

See? Nice gals DO finish first! At least in the blogosphere...

Beth said...

patricia:
Thanks - it is nice, isn't it?

MyUtopia said...

Congrats on your "nice manners" award. What a funny award!

Beth said...

girl, you SO deserve this award...really. You are one of THE nicest people out there....even when you rant!!

Beth said...

myutopia:
Not so sure it's for my nice "manners" - I can get pretty un-mannerly at times. Have been known to burp at the table!

beth:
I'm waiting/hoping for the "Bitch" Award. I'm in training right now..

Congratulations on your award. When I read what this award was all about it fit you perfectly. You are a nice person, a person who makes this blogging world a much better place.
I remember your issue with the word nice, and people thinking you were nice. I know you would not be very nice if someone disrespected you or was not very nice to you. You my dear, are not a push over and you do not let people walk on you. You are not afraid to speak your mind. That still makes you a very strong woman, who happens to be one of the nicest, caring people I have had the privilege to meet.
XOXO

Now you see, I think nice and sweet are different...nice is a kind person, thoughtful, and who leaves others happy to have spent time with you...sweet is rather syrupier...

Beth said...

eileen:
And this is one of the nicest comments I have ever received.
Thank you.

oreneta:
I really like your definitions of those words. Makes it okay to be thought of as nice.
But as for "sweet"...

Pavel said...

Awesome! Congrats! I've only "known" you for a short amount of time and I could already tell that you're nice.

Beth said...

pavel:
And when you know me better, you'll know I'm not always nice! ;-)

MyUtopia said...

We read Water for Elephants with our book club this last December. I love that book!

Mike M said...

Congrads on the award!! You deserve it more than anyone!!

Beth said...

my utopia:
I'm half way through - love the main character - old and young...

mike:
Wow. More than anyone???

Shari said...

True, everyone is nice. I had to jump to a lot of blogs to see if that person had this award.

I wanted to award you because 1) you're nice, and 2) one good turn deserves another. :)

Should be doing homework....shhhh.

Beth said...

shari:
Thanks again for thinking of me - I am truly touched.

Coffee Mom said...

Great minds think alike, LOL

Congrats, and enjoy your award, you deserve it in everyway (even if you do have a bit of a small rant once and a while, we all do)

Beth said...

coffee mom:
Thanks again for thinking of me.
And maybe letting out those rants once in awhile enables me to be "nice" the rest of the time!

I guess we could only expect such a response from someone so nice... ;)

Beth said...

princess pointful:
Aw, shucks... ;)
