I am delighted to inform you that I have received an award from Trudy—Third Time’s a Charm. You can check up her blog which is listed under The Blogs I Follow list.

She has not only given an Award but also a certificate of merit which reads as follows:-

Life in Motion
Joseph's blog is wonderful. I don't know what else to say. I linked to him from a comment he had left on another blog (see #9) and was just captivated immediately. He is a sincere, kind, loving and wonderful man who also happens to be a fine photographer that lives in India! He has very interesting posts on everything from his travels to customs in India, etc...and always has wonderful pictures to share!

WOW!I was stunned and completely bowled over by this citation.

Trudy is living in Burnsville, Minnesota, United States. She is a warm, affectionate, loving person. A dynamic go-getter, with limitless energy and abundant enthusiasm, with a lust for life and friendship which draws you to her like a magnet and engulfs you totally. She writes beautifully, interestingly, humorously about various things with an inimitable style of her own. It is well worth your time and effort to pay a visit to her blog and check it out for yourself. I am sure you will find a fine friend and build a lasting relationship.

I am aware my happiness and joy is dependent on your whole hearted support and co-operation, encouragement and motivation. Hence, my dear friends, I have decided to pass on this award to all of you listed under my BLOGS I FOLLOW COLUMN and also other friends whose names I have not listed inadvertently. Since some of you would like to have the award and some may not like to receive the award, I don’t want to take an arbitrary decision. Therefore, I humbly request you to let me know your willingness to accept this award, so that I can pass it on to you gladly and without any hesitation.

You are my glittering diamonds, rubies, emeralds and pearls in my treasure box and I value each one you very highly. You are my tiara, diadem, crown, wrist band studded with precious stones of inestimable value. Therefore, please let me know your willingness to accept this award and I will be thrilled and honored and consider it a great privilege to pass it on to you.

I remain,
Your best friend for ever,

Hi Joseph,

I am familiar with Trudy's blog, which I became acquainted with the first time through YOUR blog. :) I read her fitting description of your blog on hers first, actually, and was thinking to myself, "Amen, amen, amen!"

You have brought so many of us together through your pictures and stories, and most of all through your unwavering dedication to seeking out and finding so many blogging treasures on the internet. You are an inspiration and blessing to us all, Joseph!

I do not wish for any awards, and I admire your sensitivity in asking for permission first. I speak of you so frequently to my friends and family that I'm quite sure they all feel like they know you.

With fond affection and many prayers for a bright and prosperous day,

your friend,
Mel :)

Hi Sir Joseph,


What Trudy says about your is true.
You deserve many more wards like this.


Hi Joseph thanks for the visit,
very much appreciated. Yes you are right a mother's love starts from within the womb, but when you actually see and hold the tiny miracle you feel "More" protective.

Yes my grandsons were a handful that day we were at a park where they have a climbing spiders web that's why they were climbing everywhere, boys will boys,
Once again lovely to hear from you.
Have a great week-end.

I am not sure despite being a man, if I will be able to fully express a though on father …and that too when I love my papa more …

but there is something mysterious about motherhood, womanhood & that’s what drives me to post that one…
