Semper Fidelis Award, Parliament Award, Blog of the Year Award

semperfiblog1 owlpt20131201-215122 (1) Third star. . . . . All these awards have a theme of friendship. Little did I imagine when I started blogging in February 2013, that by the end of the year I would have met so many interesting and diverse people from all over the world. My friend Dr. Rex has awarded these to me  and it is such an honor to accept.  She has such a beautiful blog and has such a giving and gentle heart.  Please visit her at ( She discovered the power of the healing touch when she began her career as a massage therapist and later became a medical doctor. Her life’s work has to be care for those in need. During her  last 14 years of  practicing medicine, she  joined the  Department of Veterans Affairs as a primary care physician caring for American veterans and winning distinguished physician awards. ( My brother was a physician in the Veterans Administration system as well. )

One of Dr. Rex’s  life verses is from Mahatma Gandhi: “Be the change that you wish to see in the  world.”

Dr. Rex continues her work by encouraging, uplifting and educating through her blog  at but mostly through her example of love. . . . . . Thank you  for your inspiration, Dr. Rex!
