DEDICATED BLOGGER AWARD

In this blogging world, which I have been lucky enough to “traverse” through since I retired from my lifetime job, I have found incredible bloggers who definitely make this world a better place.  I’m here learning new things everyday related to every topic that you may think about. And this is all because of you.

“It Is What It Is” has received an award from one such amazing person.

As I sit at my PC and write words, attempt to put together a post, gather info, graphics and videos, I often wonder what the effects of my effort will be. I believe that this feeling may be shared my many who also blog.

Receiving any kind of award is always an honor. It’s always humbling. It’s always an eye opener in the sense that there IS someone out there who may “stumble” into this spot and find something that resonates with them and may even be helpful.

For this, I am very grateful.

Consider this my Christmas present to you.

To quote the “IdealisticRebel”

Blogging, some say, is losing ground on the Internet.  Many people are now using Twitter or Snapchat or Instagram to convey their thoughts, leaving the more ‘old-fashioned’ blog behind.

But there are those who understand that, sometimes, a long form is best.  Who know that it takes time, and craft, and WORDS as well as images to convey a thought, and to start a conversation.

This Award is dedicated to those bloggers who consistently provide wisdom, inspiration, kindness, gentleness and truth to the world through their blogs.

This is a my “thank you” to you.

Please, pass it on!

MY QUOTE FOR TODAY IS

THE STORY BEHIND IT

Among the hundreds of people were waiting to visit with Mahatma Gandhi were a mother and her young son. When it was their turn, the woman asked Gandhi to speak with her son about eating sugar.

Gandhi asked her to come back in two weeks and said he would talk to the boy then.

She wondered why he didn’t just speak to her son when he was already there, but she complied with his request.

In two weeks they returned, and after waiting for a couple of hours, she was able to approach Gandhi once again.

Hearing her repeated request, Gandhi immediately spoke with the boy, who agreed to begin working to eliminate sweets.

After thanking Gandhi for his wise and compassionate words, the mother asked him why he wanted them to return instead of offering his advice the first time.

Gandhi replied, “Upon your visit two weeks ago I too was eating sugar.”

He explained that he could not speak of or teach her son to not eat sugar if he himself had not taken that journey.
