Hope you can find time to do it :)

SeaSpray said...

Dear Mel...Thank you so very much for this award. Coming from you it truly means a lot. YOU are worthy of this award! Your posts are always inspirational and touch my heart. They impart Godly love and wisdom.

I had been feeling down and my spirits were lifted when I read your kind words. Thank you for thinking of me and God bless you and your loved ones.

P.S. I am going in for surgery tomorrow because my ureter totally closed again. I had to go to the hospital via ER and then admitted 5 days. I had a pre-sepsis blood infection and the doctor put a ureteral stent in.

The concern was that the old stricture closed up again which would mean that I would probably need the reconstructive psoas hitch surgery which I don't want because I would be high risk.

The doctor is hoping it was just a stone and thinks it is lower than the original stricture.

Could you please pray that the surgery/procedure goes well and that it is something the doctor can fix and that it is not the old stricture scarring again?

Thank you very much. :)

Tey said...

your sweet and generous heart will be loved by those you have given your appreciation.. You just gave me an idea,.. I should be doing this someday....

Hi Jlee,
You are worth yourself your weight in gold. I do believe you deserve the accolade my friend. Sorry for the late answer. We got some problem in my country. Thanks again and God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Heiresschild,
Unfortunately, we were victims again of inundation in our house. No cause for worry though. We were safe in the higher house we sought refuge to and all our belongings were spared from any damage or loss, thanks be to God for His grace and mercy. I hope you are doing well together with all your household and family. Thanks again and God bless you all.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Gagay,
I do not understand the Sabbath salutation since we all celebrate the Lord's day. Anyway thanks for the greetings. Yes, I will visit your blog soon. Thanks and God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Lena,
You really deserve the award for your sensitive posts. We may not be communicating that much but I admire your work tremendously. Thanks for your appreciation of the award. God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Scribbit,
I really admire your generosity in giving so many presents and giveaways to your readers. Your articles of your life and happenings in Alaska are all wonderful reading materials. Thanks for your appreciation of your award. God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dr. Deb,
You'll always remain up there in my list of my most admired bloggers. Your dedication and care for your readers are very evident in all your articles. Thanks for your appreciation of your award. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Marja,
You are so wonderful and one of a kind to be able to write articles of inspiration for all your bipolar disorder colleagues. God bless you for your efforts to overcome your own trials and those of your bipolar friends too. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi sis Emmyrose,
Just like Marja and Bluebirdy who are both suffering from debilitating maladies, you are also a tower of strength and inspiration for all those similarly suffering. May your tribe increase and may God bless you all for your ennobling efforts. Thanks for appreciating your award. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Jena Isle,
Thank you so much my friend. Yes, I will visit your blog soon to see my article. You are worthy of an award too for your advocacy to protect children from TV violence. I really appreciate the 1000 ecs you credited to me. It will go a long way to advertise my blog. Thanks again and God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Keshi,
You really deserve that award for your popular blog. You attract all kinds of readers for your straightforward presentation of life. Thanks for dedicating an award to me. I give back all the glory to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Thanks for appreciating your award. God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Sameera,
Thanks for appreciating the award I gave to you. Yes, Lena, Keshi and Preetilata deserve their respective awards too. I still do not do tags and memes. I just did it to attract more traffic in trying to commercialize my blog but until now I still have zero credit from Google adsense. I am still trying to increase traffic to my blog that's why I am concentrating in my blog hopping activities at Blog Catalog and Entrecard. I now have close to 700 friends from Blog Catalog and an average of 200 visits a day which I have to reciprocate. That's the reason why I could not give comments to your blog and those of my other friends as often as I would want to. But I always treat you all as my precious and valued friends. Thanks for your visit and comments my wonderful friend. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Gagay,
So sorry. I was out of circulation for a week because of the damage done by typhoon Frank to our house. We were inundated by floodwaters and were forced to seek shelter to a higher house. Thanks God, we did not lose any belongings. Our internet signal got knocked out too and the internet provider only repaired our antenna just this morning. Thanks again for your visit and God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Krystyna,
You will always be deserving of any award to be given in bloggersville. Your articles are worth all the awards for their value in terms of nature cure and wellness. I'm very proud to have you as my friend- my sister in Christ. Thanks so much for appreciating your award and God bless you and your loved ones always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Preetilata,
That's too much of a praise, I have to give it all to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. He deserves all the glory and honor alone. I hope you will continue to write since you exhibit such sensitivity that only a person that underwent a lot of trials in her life can write about. Thanks for your appreciation of your award. God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Fingertalks,
You really deserve that award. You write with such clarity of thoughts and erudition that I really appreciate. Thanks for appreciating your award. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi CapCity,
You really deserve that award my friend. I can see how you tremendously affect your readers by your soulful articles. God bless you and all your worthy endeavors in life.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi sis Emmyrose,
Yes, I will go over to your blog to see the tag. I really hope I can do it. Thanks again and God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Seaspray,
Yes, I will pray for you. I hope you will trust the Lord more than you will trust your doctor or any other person for that matter. The Lord is speaking to you in this latest episode in your life. You can not embrace God and the world at the same time. You must be a Christian first and foremost. Thanks for appreciating your award. God bless you with divine healing and deliverance.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Tey,
Thanks for your thoughtfulness and your visits and comments too. I really appreciate your friendship. God bless you always.

Solitaire said...

Noushy Syah said...

Congratz to all the receivers...they surely deserved it. I agree with you that they are such outstanding bloggers in their niche'.

Hope you are fine end there.Take care Mel.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Solitaire,
Thanks for appreciating the award that I have given you. They were given out of merit and not closeness with me. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Noushy,
Thanks for your visit and comments. I gave the award to those truly deserving based on pure merit and not closeness or friendship with me. As you can see, some of them did not even bother to acknowledge their awards. But that should not stop me from recognizing their talents. Thank you so much my dear friend. God bless you and your loved ones always.
