Wonderful Team Member Readership Award

wonderful team member readership award

I admit it openly and honestly – I LOVE getting awards.  I think that deep down we all crave recognition, acceptance and love.  I have found this on Word Press.  I have met WONDERFUL people who have loved and supported me for the past year.   It is a very powerful thing to be recognised by a blogger I find not only incredibly inspirational, but funny and thought-provoking too.

Shaun from Praying for One Day awarded me the Wonderful Team Membership Readership Award,which of course I graciously accepted.  Shaun is one of my favourite bloggers who has become a wonderful friend. The first post of mine that Shaun ever read was https://tersiaburger.com/2013/01/25/vic-has-left-home-for-the-last-time/  Sometime later Shaun wrote me an email or a comment, I am unsure which it was…He wrote that after he read my post he and his partner Dawn cuddled and sat in silence for a long time weeping for Vic.  Shaun always leaves a comment, hug or word of encouragement.  Shaun has been awarded this award 6 or 7 times and with good reason.  He is a Wonderful Team Reader who truly deserves this award!

So here are the rules:

1. Display the logo on your page.

2. Finish the sentence: A great reader is…

A great reader is… someone who takes the time out of his/her busy life to read my ramblings of grief, leave a comment, hug, advice… A great reader is someone who reaches out from cyberspace and cries with me, laughs with me and cares for me.  A great reader is my wonderful WordPress friends!


3. Nominate 14 readers I appreciate.

  1. Tersia..
    If I could award you more , or in another way I would.
    A big hug would be better. As I love to to bits. Your story has become Dawns and my Story. Dawn reads a lot of your blogs. I keep saying “Babe, start a blog” She might, I don’t know. She isn’t really into internet communication lol. She gets hit on a lot :-)

    But, the truth of the matter is, the 1st blog I read from you had me and Dawn holding each other and we cried.
    You know what else I want to say, I have said it to you before.
    Just know we both love you here..



  2. Tersia, you deserve every award in existence!! Truly, you do. This blog has made an indescribable impact on me and opened my eyes in a significant way. You are an incredible human being in my eyes.
    Much love!

  4. Congratulations Tersia – you are so very deserving and I am touched you have named me here. Blessings and Love to you always, Robyn


  5. Dear Tersia, thanks ever so much. You bring such war feelings of friendship to me with every time we communicate and a smile to my heart. You have completely knocked me off my bare feet, I had heard through the ‘WordPress vine’ that you have been so generous. Again.
    I wanted to come and thank you now, not wait till I am back full time.

    Thank you for your kind words also in reference to my writing. I think you know how much it means to have what you say mean something to someone. If I am ale to give you even a fraction of what I take away from what you share on your blog – I will be grateful.

    I will work on posting the acceptance soon and do so without any defaults this time. I am humbled by you as much ad I am awe.
    Your award makes me proud that you call me friend Tersia. Thank you so very much.
    Much love & always gentle hugs ~
