Love, Friendships & Inspirations

I'm not ignoring the fact that today was/is Valentine's Day, but since the 11th is our wedding anniversary, The Ronald and I always celebrate the two Love Events at the same time. We don't give each other gifts anymore, either, because after all.....we ARE each other's gifts!

A big Welcome and Thank You to my newest follower: Zev! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you continue to like what you read and see here.

I've been trying to remember which blog friend's book I was planning on buying next....Does anyone remember if I even mentioned it? I may have to change my plans and buy one every other month or so. I still have such a huge stack of books in my To Be Read pile, I feel as if I should tackle a few of them. I've got two in mind, in particular, that I really want to start, and they're both on my night stand. Hmmm, which one will win out?

Wonderful friend, Tammy, presented this awesome "You Inspire Me" award last month and I kept forgetting to post it...until just now. Thank you so much, Tammy. You inspire Me constantly. Below is what Tammy said about me on her blog:
"And finally, to Becky, great friend and writer, who inspires me as both...even though my stupid computer won't even show me most of her blog page. SIGH...."

Thanks again, Tam. And I hope sometime soon you'll get rid of the gremlins in your computer!

"The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with friendship." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. Just popping in to catch up in Becky's world and wish you a lovely Valentine's Day (or what's left of it). I hope you remember the books you want to read-honestly, I write everything down...what I need to do at work, what I'm fixing for supper, what I want to read next.

    I should probably add blogs-to-read to my list. Then I wouldn't be so late catching up!

  2. Our wedding anniversary is right next to Christmas, but I think that probably beats being next to Valentine's Day. It would be hard to do two "lovey=dovey" holidays right next to each other!

    We don't give big presents, either. We usually get a little token of some kind, but nothing much.

    Hope you had a fun day!


  3. Becky I really love this quote. Thanks

  4. Happy Anniversary to you and Ronald, Becky! You are a blessed woman, indeed, to have the love of your life right there with you. Many, many more happy days are wished for you in the years to come. Susan

  5. Just stopped in for the music. I'm getting some dirty looks as I mouth the words from my table at Borders. Anyway, congratulations on your award!!!

  6. Well a very happy anniversary to you and your husband. I definitely understand what you are saying on the Valentine's Day thing. In our family, the "love day" is completely ignored, as it falls between daughter's birthday on the 13th and our anniversary on the 15th. Yes, that means today is my anniversary...the big 25!!!! We are having dinner at a beautiful little fondue restaurant to celebrate, and we have EVERY intention of getting their fabulous 4 course dinner.


  7. Glad you got to post it, and LOVE the quote! Happy Anniversary to you and The Ronald!!!

  8. Congrats on your award! You just keep racking them up! Joe and I don't do Valentine gifts either, at least nothing big. The 9th is the anniversary of the day we met, so we usually celebrate that instead. :)

  9. congratulations on your anniversary...

    here's to love, true love!

    ciao bella

  10. This is awesome blog. I'm a new follower. Good luck with the writing.

  11. Hi Becky,

    You are a blessing to us all, and I am so glad that you are a happy lady. Like many of your other friends, we just do little stuff around here for Valentine's Day too. Please let us know about your next recent read when you finish!

    God bless,


  12. Congratulations on the "You Inspire Me Award!!" I love the quote for today.
