With Joyful Gratitude

The praise of one is the celebration of all. And so in grateful acknowledgment of both the giving and receiving I thank you Dear Bonnie for such honor bestowed upon me. Bonnie of, so graciously expressed upon receipt of this award...

"Today I was honored to receive the Bella Sinclair Award from Sarah at Cottage Garden Studio. On her blog, Sarah explains that this award was originally created by Ces of Ces And Her Dishes for Bella of Bella Sinclair Doodlespot. I borrowed a quote of Ces from Sarah's blog where Ces explains the meaning of the award:"

"In Ces's words..."I designed this award to celebrate art in the blogs and to honor the value of friendship, sisterhood, sharing and caring. It is to be awarded to the gifted, accomplished, eloquent and talented blogger whose friendship and influence inspire us to do our best. That I named it after Bella Sinclair is because she epitomizes all of these things. She is an inspiration to many of us."

It is with joyful gratitude that I have been chosen to receive , "The Bella Sinclair Award." and thank you dear Bonnie, and a thank you to all who have chosen to follow APOGEE Poet and have come to value the offerings of poetry and art.

With joy,

Rose Marie Raccioppi
