The Brilliance in Blogging Awards are much coveted for signs of public recognition. If you are a blogger living in the U.K. you are sure to have heard of them and almost as sure that you must have aspired to win one some day.
In the three years I have been blogging, I have always associated the Brilliance in Blogging Awards with awesome, beautiful and inspirational blogs.
Never in a million years did I dream my little blog would be not only nominated but voted and then shortlisted as a possible finalist in the Inspirational Blog section!!!
I am writing this post still pinching myself about the enormity of such an honour, to be in company, be it even in a list, of such great names and blogs as Jennie’s Edspire, Leigh’s Headspace Perspective and Karin’s Embrace Happy.
These three ladies have been beacons of light to me over the last couple of years.
I used to read Jennie’s heart-rendering accounts and the raw honesty of her pain over losing Matilda-Mae made my heart crumble.
Karin and her wonderful Embrace Happy ladies were there for us last year, supporting us with encouragement and appropriate gifts for a bone-tired parent whose child was going through chemo.
And Leigh and I, we have been walking the bereaved mummy walk together, grieving the loss of our boys and making sure Georgie and Hugo will never be forgotten.
So, the question is, how can I compete with people I respect and admire and look up to?
I can’t and I don’t want to.
I want us all up there.
I want our children in the stars and our projects meant to bless others would be ALL recognised up there, on that BritMums scene in June.
So, on this account, I urge you to vote for BIBs 2015.
Every vote you cast in the Inspire category will count towards the very public remembrance of three beautiful babes, now all in heaven. And towards the recognition of the beautiful #Embrace Happy project that has already blessed our family and many more, I am sure.
Bless you lovely Oana. I too feel exceptionally honoured to be nominated with so many truly awe-inspiring writers. Probably the hardest category to make a choice in, to be honest! I’m so pleased that Embrace Happy has been of some support to you and know that we are all with you every step of your journey. Much love to you and your beautiful family.
I totally agree, Karin, this year the voting for the inspirational category will be very hard, there are so many brilliant blogs there! Hugs and looking forward to finally meeting you in June at BritMums!xx
Thank you for the mention, Oana. I wish neither of us were in this category, that we were being normal mums to Georgie and to Hugo xxxx
Congratulations my beautiful Oanna. It has been amazing how through your pain of losing little Georgie you were able to express such wisdom and profound feelings and thoughts. I’m so proud of you and your talents. You’re an exceptional person and I’m happy to be your “auntie.” 🙂
You have been so brave and worked so hard to keep Georgie’s memory alive. You deserve to be here and I wish you all the very best of luck xx
