Most Inspiring Post this Week

I'm at it again with announcing the Lollipop award for this week goes to Lonicera for her post on getting inspiration from other bloggers. There were so many passages that rang true and I felt the same way. This blogging community, whether newbies, in-betweeners, S.O.B.'s and caring people, is a support system which has been my lifeline when those close to me just don't get it. Sometimes we have to remember that a post or comment can make a difference in someone's thinking and help them along on our collective journey. 

This week has been an eclectic mix of comments and posts. Some were downright funny and had me LMAO which is sometimes hard when I work in a cubicle farm and I don't wear waterproof mascara. I poured my heart out in a post from a question that Amy asked and then Drazil repeated for BYOC. Tina and Jen posted about the time spent blogging and if it had value. I am missing a few bloggers that have not been able to join in this week because of vacations, work, life in general and hope we will see them again soon. Gen had a wonderful idea to profile an S.O.B. (Superstar of the Band) and Judi was her first victim contributor. Judi showed us all that it can be done and I can't wait for other "veterans" to give us their story. It helped make me see that we can all lose the "Monkey on our Back" (aka fat) and in the process learn a lot more about ourselves and others.

Which leads me to my final comment for today and one which brought a tiny aaawww to my heart—the finger monkey that Jess posted. She said that there wasn't much to post about so put this little picture up. Funny how I was still thinking about it on my way to work. And maybe that is how our "Monkey on the Back" will end up—as a small little finger monkey. I want one so bad.

How many calories in a small monkey and how do you cook it ??

You know those little clippy panda bears we had in the 80's? I used to clip those on my finger...and wander around like that as a kid...loved 'em. I remember a monkey, too. Maybe we can find those for the B.O.O.B.s gathering... :) That would be awesome!

Wow Sandy, thank you!! I did a double take when I read the first few lines that appear on my bloggers list. It's such a lovely idea, and has given me a real lift. Hope it's OK to copy and paste the image and include it on the right of my blog with a link to yours? Thanks again for such a nice gesture.
