"Humble Gift" by Marielliot
(Reprise of a FAVORITE Image)
Welcome Wow visitors! I am truly delighted to have you stop by. You have landed in the middle of my year long experiment to encourage more Everyday Bliss in my life. In order to do this I am playing an Everyday Game in which I explore what I am calling the 13 virtues of Bliss. Each week I concentrate on one of the virtues, create games to play and report my success or failures here. I am almost 3/4 of the way through the year long game as I write this and you have landed here during one of my Humility weeks.
When Pam and Sandy of Words of Wisdom informed me that TODAY was going to be my BON (Blogger of Note) day I initially thought I might ask them to move my day to next week sometime because somehow it didn't seem all that humble to be creating fan fare about the place. Then I decided it was perfect. Humility does not mean one isn't worthy of accolades, it just requires that you get out of the way and allow the light of your work shine. Which, as it turns out, is exactly what Words of Wisdom is all about!
If you had arrived here during surprise week I may have set off fireworks, during whimsy week I might have sent every visitor a fancy tea cake, or during romance week you may have been treated to a love poem... every week has its own flavor. Which has made it really difficult to choose only THREE of my favorite posts as a way to introduce my blog. Are you interested in politics or religion? Do you want to laugh or do you just want to know more about me? It is really is hard to choose! Here are the three I came up with:
From Serenity week, a reality check:
From Gratitude Week, a real favorite:
From Whimsy Week, comedy for my foodie friends:
For those of you who haven't heard of Words of Wisdom before I do recommend a hop over there. Pam and Sandy came up with a remarkably sane idea to recognize blogs for their content rather then flash or style. To be honest I was worried Everyday Bliss might not make the cut because I do giveaways (in fact you can click here for the Gratitude Giveaway Hop in progress) and sometimes I can't write a coherent sentence to save my life. Thankfully, Pam and Sandy looked past these flaws to my intent to inspire and amuse if not provoke a deeper thought from time to time.
I truly am honored to have a chance to be today's featured blogger and I hope that you enjoy your stay. I look forward to returning the visit and getting to know all of you as well!
