I hate RuLeZ but I'm making an exception for this

Make Time for Small Reflections
Ivanhoe of From Ohio with Love blessed Small Reflections with sought after Noblesse ObligeAward ... created by Windmill on the Hill. It seems to come with numerous "rules & regulations" and ya all know how I feel about rulez ... yet it's BEAUTIFUL and I'm honored. Thank you Ivana!

  • The Blogger manifests exemplary attitude, respecting the nuances that pervades amongst different cultures and beliefs.
  • The Blog contents inspire; strives to encourage and offers solutions.
  • There is a clear purpose at the Blog; one that fosters a better understanding on Social, Political, Economic, the Arts, Culture and Sciences and Beliefs.
  • The Blog is refreshing and creative.
  • The Blogger promotes friendship and positive thinking.
The Blogger who receives this award will need to perform the following steps:
  1. Create a Post with a mention and link to the person who presented the Noblesse Oblige Award.
  2. The Award Conditions must be displayed at the Post.
  3. Write a short article about what the Blog has thus far achieved – preferably citing one or older Post to support.
  4. The Blogger must present the Noblesse Oblige Award in concurrence with the Award conditions.
  5. The Blogger must display the Award at any location at the Blog.
Five feels quite limiting because most of the Bloggers I've encountered exhibit these characteristics ... yet I suspect these awardees will pass it along in turn so today I pass the Noblesse Oblige Award on to the following bloggers (in alphabetical order) :

Maithri of the Soaring Impulse
Mary 's Writing Nook
Sandy Carlson at Writing in Faith
Sylvia From Over the Hill
Yolanda of Perfectly Imperfect

... and I encourage whoever passes by to visit each of their blogs if you're not already a 'regular' visitor of theirs ... seriously!
