Semper Fidelis Award …. from Shaun Gibson!!


November 26, 2013 

Thank you to Shaun Gibson @  for this great award. This is an award that signifies “loyalty and love between friends”.

I feel honored when Shaun considers me someone worthy of this award.

Loyalty and love between friends is a big deal for me.

In the words of the Award 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.

The Rules:

  • Add the Semper Fidelis Award logo somewhere on your blog.
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Nominate 5 bloggers whose loyalty and friendship you value and you consider being part of your “pack of wolves” on WordPress.
  • Post something special for all of your nominees separately and dedicate it to them. This can be a quote, saying, poem, and picture.  Anything you think that would fit that person.
  • Let the nominees know that you’ve nominated them.

My pack of wolves:

I found Shaun by chance in the blogosphere …. A fortuitous meeting it’s been!! What can I say about Shaun that I haven’t already said? Awesome lad ….


I read this about Shaun in his “About” tab: “I am not religious, but I respect anyone’s right to think and believe what they may. Freedom of expression and thoughts is important, as is the ability to accept that other people have feelings and opinions. We must allow others opinions to speak to us, otherwise we turn to hate and intolerance.

Love the people in your life, be happy, stay strong and always fight to better yourself. Some hide away and shy from the world, and live alone and die alone. We all are guilty, as if we reach out, others reach back. I reach out with every blog I do, and people do reach back.”

Shaun introduced me to Jade …. We are building a connection that seems quite promising!  


I read this about Jade in the “About” tab: “I have always loved the written word (there are several childhood holiday photos of me with my nose stuck in a book!)  and on my life’s bucket list is the desire to write a book. Over the years I have written odds and ends but took the decision to embark on a Creative Writing course last year which has given me the motivation to finally put my novel shaped pen to paper. Initially I thought I would struggle to write more than one chapter, but somehow I have managed to complete my first novel, Twelve Days – The Beginning, which will be published in May!”

Shaun introduced me to Bishop Eddie …. Times were troubled when we connected. Waves seem to be calming, as much as possible now.


I read this about Bishop Eddie Tatro in his “About” tab: “I have had some difficulties throughout my life. During the darkest of my days, I turned to scripting verse. Our Creator has given us all many gifts; I credit my Creator with my gift of verse. My poetry and writing has always been therapeutic to me. I like all human souls have had great trials and tribulations as well as great victories and blessings. I’m happy to say that I’m a published poet a few times over.”

I met Anne by chance … as she liked and made comments on some of my posts.


I read this about Anne in her “About” tab: “Through my eyes and words, I want each of you to experience this exotic, ancient country, India, which is standing on the brink of becoming a world power. And having a blog gives me a reason to write for my family, former students, grand-babies, and friends. Writing is to be read, so having readers, comments, and questions to answer will encourage me along the way.”

I met Blackbutterfly by chance in the blogosphere …. We have established a connection since. It feels warm and true.


I read this about BB7 in the “About” tab: “Blackbutterfly7 is interested in justice and equality for all.  Since the verdict in the Zimmerman case, we have reported and continue to report on other cases, those seeking investigation, and those seeking justice, regardless of religion, race, gender, or sexual orientation.”


I consider these writers to be in my pack of wolves.

This award stands for loyalty and love between friends, as noted by the Award Creator. I want people like this “in my corner”. They ”give” rather than “take”. They teach, they educate ….. they are all genuine.  They all have “good energy”.

They are “my kind of people”.

Please, accept this award. It is my honor to nominate you.

Let’s sit by the fire, exchange ideas, grow as individuals, and support each other. I’m “game”. Are you?

Let’s howl at the moon together.
