Thank You Transmission #1

November 30, 2013 at 6:59 pm 29 comments

‘Tis the time of year to give thanks, so I have decided to do so in a story telling format (after having been inspired by watching the Harry Potter marathon on the Fox Family Channel and the Star Wars Marathon on the Spike Channel – two cable channels in the USofA).  Without further adieu – make yourself comfy, cue the tunes and away we go…..

Once upon a long time ago, in a universe far, far away, there lived a clan of four soldiers.  (This is a true story) They were a kind, loving bunch spreading goodwill throughout the universe – protecting those who could not protect themselves.   The leader of the clan, Syd Pee 3-O, was the strongest of them all with a Paw that could maim with a single swipe.  Next in command was the brains of the operation,  Jor-2-d-2.  He was the technical mastermind, able to bring any operating system to its knees.  Then there was the director of security, Master PeYoda.  He could cook up any top-secret plan and execute it with precision.  The last member, MomBacca, took it upon herself to watch over the clan – making certain the ship was operational, supply clean underwear, food in the fridge and – this is the most important – tuck the soldiers in at night.  MomBacca did have one more responsibility – to blog, aka to communicate.  Blogging made use of the W3 (top-secret wavey things in space), and for the millions of other goodwill soldiers, this was their only means of communication.

Eons of years were spent traversing the universe.  Eons of  clans came and went and many blogs were transmitted, whereupon they still do exist – floating amongst the W3’s in space.  Many of these transmissions have been passed down from generation to generation and some have been placed into a collective source called the WP…………….flash to present day…….

I am the great, great, great…etc… grandchild of MomBacca.  I still oversee the transport, food and laundry of my little clan and I have continued the tradition of blogging.  I blog about many things but one of my absolute favorite things to blog about is gratitude for my fellow ‘clans people’ and here is one such transmission…….

The Versatile Blogger Award

The Versatile Blogger Award

Gifted by Ilka at

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award.
  •  Include a link to their blog.
  •  Next, select 15 (5) blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  •  Nominate these 15 (5) bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

My five (should be fifteen) nominees are:


As you can see, I have bent the rules quite a bit.   I have adjusted the number of nominees and the amount of information given about me.  First of all, there is not too much to tell about myself and secondly, I want to spare you the many more words I have to type – of which I have many more to type and they will be revealed shortly with a few more upcoming ‘transmissions’ of gratitude.

I would like to end on this note:  I sincerely want to thank each and every fellow blogger for each moment you have gifted of yourself on your blog site.  These include more than the follows,  likes, comments and awards you have given me – they are the photos, words, thoughts and feelings expressed in each post – the little bits of yourselves you share across the W3’s on the WP!

Until the next transmission –

Happy Reading, Happy Writing


Happy Day!

With love,

      You are welcome. Yes – I am a Star Wars geek and Harry Potter geek. I think my remote finger is getting a touch of carpal tunnel syndrome thanks to the constant switch between channels. 😉

    Thank you for the award. I do try and be positive although I have a long way to go (everyone needs a goal. Right?).

    • 17. words4jp  |  December 1, 2013 at 1:37 am

      What I love about your blog is your optimism and, yes, your positive way of looking at things. We all have work to do in that department – me especially – but I feel that light when I read your blog and this makes me feel good:)

      • 18. Pamela Beckford  |  December 1, 2013 at 1:42 am

        *blushes* I’m humbled

  • 19. secretangel  |  December 1, 2013 at 1:21 am

    Congratulations on your awards and that is really the most awesome, creative speech I have seen. I loved it! Also, I really appreciate the nomination for Most Influential Blogger. I am greatly humbled and honored by your nomination. Your support means more than you can imagine. Many blessings to you, my friend!!

    • 20. words4jp  |  December 1, 2013 at 1:30 am

      Thank you very much. I am always very honored to receive them, but what I enjoy even more is to give them to bloggers in which I believe embody the award itself. Your blog is very influential – you bring hope and education to many people – those who are victims and to all others. This is a very wonderful thing;) xxx

      • 21. secretangel  |  December 2, 2013 at 12:50 am

        Kimberly… Thank you so much for your continued support! I really appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness. I pray that God blesses you exceedingly and abundantly. As I pray everyday for what to say, I just have never felt that I can accept awards for words that are not mine since I write as God leads me. God told me once, “My Tongue is the Pen of a ready writer.” So you see, I am only a servant with a pen/ blog waiting on the Words from God. I thank God for the words that He gives me and I humbly thank you again for the nomination and hope you understand why I am an “award free” blog. Many blessings to you, my friend!!!

      • 22. words4jp  |  December 2, 2013 at 2:36 am

        I understand perfectly:) xx

      • 23. secretangel  |  December 2, 2013 at 2:58 am

        God bless you!! 🙂
