Gratitude Bank

Amazing friend….

I would like to share with my blogger friends this lovely tribute to me from my dear friend, Sharmishtha (Trisha) Basu.  She had also painted the lovely rose-heart to accompany it and offered it for me to share.  I’m very grateful for her generosity and friendship.  Thank you, Trisha!

Many thanks to this lovely forum.  I so appreciate being supported by so many in such a loving way.  My nomination goes to Nicole of Honey Haiku–a wonderful talent.

Thanks and gratitude to SIS for organizing a fun month of haiku for February.  I appreciate this acknowledgement for completing the challenge.

I am most honored to accept this award for The Celebrate Poet of Spring in 2011 Award.  Thank you–I truly appreciate this.

  1. Congrats on this. I love the way you named the page … it is about appreciation. Wonderful. Did you see Olivia’s sweet words about you on Sunday Rally Dispatch on Jingle Poetry. You are a mentor to her.

    Blessings of the day, Gayle.

    Thanks for your kind visits and comments on my site.


  2. Yes, it’s all about my gratitude for the kindnesses shown to me through these nice awards. I’m glad you like it.

    No, I haven’t seen what Olivia wrote about me–I’ll go see. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    I’m enjoying the sharing back and forth between us–it’s so nice to know you.


    • I’ve just read the interview by you of Olivia. What nice things for both you and Olivia to say about me. I’m very honored and humbled to be of inspiration to anyone–and it’s so nice to have it said.

      Much gratitude. xoxo


  3. I love the name of this page too, and I can relate to that sentiment.
