Well, I’m coming clean. I’m embarrassed, feeling guilty and ashamed. Far too long ago, a dear fellow blogger nominated my blog for a ‘Domino Award.’ I accepted, filing it away in memory to follow-up with, later. This lovely blogger corresponded with me once or twice. I remember commenting on her lovely blog.
Something happened then. It’s called, L.I.F.E. Days went by, the clocked ticked on. Celebrations began, my 1st grandson was born, and suddenly I found myself unexpectedly busier than usual. I ‘played’ with my only grand-daughter in order to give her parents a much needed break. It was a joy, truly something I wanted to do!
Here’s my dilemma. For the last few days, I’ve searched my comment section over and over, trying to find any vague reference what-so-ever to the above nomination. No luck. Worse yet, I am embarrassed to say I do not recall who nominated me! Yes, I’m confessing…to everyone. Shame on me! I try to ‘follow’ many, many blogs. Still, this is not an excuse. I am to blame. I am the only one who is responsible for the delay, the lack of follow-up and my own embarrassment.
I could take the easy way out. Simply forget about the nomination. Ignore it, pretend it never happened. There would only be two people who know….the person who nominated my blog together with me. However, I can’t do it. I feel too guilty. Too ashamed.
So, if you’re out there, Fellow Blogger, and if you are willing to forgive me for my memory lapse together with my irresponsibility, please let me know. If not, I understand. Awards of one’s peers are not to be taken lightly. In spite of what you may think, I truly consider each and every one to be a respected honor. For my lack of judgment, I take 100 lashings together with tremendous embarrassment.
Regardless, I am apologizing for my lapse in memory together with the length of time in acknowledging your gift of nomination, publicly. Shame on me!
With True Blessings to You,
