Those of you who might know me personally are probably saying to yourself, “What’s this post about? Theresa is the least athletic person I’ve ever met…” And, you would be right!
However, the title of this refers to offering my most sincere gratitude to Coach Muller of “Good Time Stories” for the following three awards.
Three awards, you say?
My disclaimer: I’ve never met the man, but I certainly love his blog. Every time I read what are indeed his “good time stories,” I feel better about myself, humankind and our future. His stories, like what I attempt with my own, portray our humanity to one another…our reaching out…our kindnesses…our sacrifices…our connectedness. If you haven’t already taken a look at his blog, please do. You will feel hope spring from the pages.
And now for some of the details…
1. Display this award on your blog. – done
2. Thank the person who sent it to you. – done
3. Answer a rhetorical question of the authors choosing.
Q: Who would you have liked to work with, if given the chance?
A: Mother Teresa.
4. Send on the award to someone you consider a loyal reader. [Note: I am only nominating one to represent all of my loyal readers; otherwise, I’d be here all night. Please see my final words at the end of this post.]

My nominee for the ABC Award: Posed and Written
Last, but not least…
I was already nominated for this (see “In Gratitude – Part II”), but none-the-less, Coach, I am grateful for the thought.
To my readers: thank you.
I write about people, places and things that have touched me in some way.
In this, I include all of you. You touch my heart.
