Now, I'm to pass this award along to six of my Over The Top blog loves so here they are:

Cinner
Pissy
Ribbon
Tessa
Robin
Joanna

Cut and paste these questions to your post and I'll be looking forward to learning more about you through these very terse, insightful words of yours! Have fun!

Now, here's an unexpected treat thanks to my friend Mel at From Clutter to Shine:

I saw this award on her blog, I thought, "Brava! So very perfect!!" I have always loved Mel's way of telling her truth and helping us all learn from her bravery of sharing it. I admire how much she is able to teach me through her posts and her insights. I've been blessed with her thoughts on some situations off-blog and I have benefited from her investment in conversations.

So, when I read that she has passed this along to me because she feels the same way about my writing? I am really honored. Thank you Mel. Very much, indeed!

As honest bloggers we:

* Speak our truth from the heart and tell it like it is
* Share openly and honestly our true feelings without fear of judgement, Blame or shame.
* We write to share our achievements so others can also share our joy.
* We write about our bad times too, knowing that the love and support of others is around us and perhaps heal another’s pain in the process..
*We are human beings will real feelings and emotions and REFUSE to hide behind a mask.
* We dare to be different
* We are Free Spirits
* We realize that by spilling out, we lighten our load.
* We acknowledge our strengths and weaknesses and don't see them in terms of success or failure.
* We laugh together and cry together
* We are all following our own journey in our own unique way
* Above all else, we may lie on the floor, screaming and kicking, or feel like life is collapsing around us once in a while….but at the end of the day, we drag ourselves up, dust ourselves off and rise to fight another day.

For we are Warrior Women and we write not to please others, stroke our own egos or be judged, we blog because we care! Our blogs are our therapy, and through sharing SHIfT HAPPENS!

If what I do here at Your Mother knows makes an honest difference to your day? I am happy to be part of the good moments I hope it holds for you and yours.

Thanks for the love Sarah & Mel!

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly

Hehehe, darling Holly, I'm thrilled to bits and pieces that you would include me in your list of Over the Toppers! Big bear hug of thanks and love is being jet-propelled over the ocean to you right now. I've actually done a meme like this one before, so perhaps I shouldn't do a repeat? Either way, I will put the badge on my side bar with great pride.

Your other award is also hugely well deserved and SO appropriate. Your blog is a constant source of delight, so full of wisdom and humour, love and truth. You are a precious gem amongst gems, Holly.
