Shining Light Award

Shining Light Award

This award is presented to Renee of circlingmyhead for her extraordinary and enduring spirit.

She is the lighthouse, helping mariners navigate the harsh forces of nature and maintaining their compass pointed toward home.

May she enjoy this on her birthday, March 28, and all the days and years to come.

This award is non-transferable.
Artwork by Roger Pool, Florence, Oregon. U.S.A.

Renee, for all the ways we love you: Happy Birthday! Tell me where to ship the painting!

Wow - what a perfect award for Renee!

Renee said...

Rosaria, I am utterly speechless. Like are you kidding me.

I knew you were making an award but this is amazing. So amazing.

The painter is brilliant.

You are brilliant.

How can I thank you for doing this.

I want you to know that I am so touched. You have reached in and went right past my heart to my soul and I love you for it.

I am so honoured by the award and mostly by your words.

Love Renee

What a beautiful award - the painting is amazing and the words behind the painting even more so - you are definately right - she has been a lighthouse for many a lost sailor.

Just had to come by to look at my picture again, and then I realized I didn't even have to come here because I have it at my blog.


Love you for it.

I'm raising a glass to you tonight.

You touch us, Rosaria and us give gifts. You enrich and educate us, pulling out pearls from the depth of your wisdom and from your spacious heart.

You, Rosaria, are one very special lady. And so is Renee!

Hi Rosaria,

that is a lovely apt metaphor for Renee. She has added a ray of light to so many people's lives through her funky posts and her good heart.

You have captured the essence of my momma aka "Pudding".

I will remember this phrase always: "She is the lighthouse, helping mariners navigate the harsh forces of nature and maintaining their compass pointed toward home."

Thank you
