Nice Matters

Today someone told me that I'm nice. Now, next to "sweet", that's one of the most flattering things I've had said about me. I'd really like to believe that some folks have that opinion of me.

Tressa, over at "Storms Whisper" is the kind Lady who bestowed that award on me today. You should check out the beautiful prose she lays out over on her blog. Coming from her, this is a genuine compliment.

I'd like to pay it forward now, and choose a couple of folks who I haven't tapped before.

Colleen, over at "My Life" is a very kind young Lady who is very involved in awareness efforts for the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. I love generosity and kindness, both of which make someone nice, in my book.

Kristeee is a new Mommy, and she's also a blog friend who's always been very nice to me. She's over at "I'm Not Going Crazy"

Now I know that I said that I wanted to tap people who I've not given honors to before, but my conscience would never allow me to pass up this opportunity to cite a couple of people here today. They have been so utterly kind to me of late that I'm in the best kind of debt to them, that of gratitude. Kristen is a reader of mine who keeps a private Blog, so I won't link that, and Mamma, of course, is a "colleague" of sorts, who writes over at Love, Life and Logic. These two Ladies saw an opportunity to share some kindness and compassion, and they took it. My soul is in a better place today because of them. So thank you, Ladies, as always, for your friendship.


  1. Oh, lippy, I'm speechless..... (for once!!)

    Ok, not really. You are too kind. And YOU really are nice, and sweet. Ha--I used both! But seriously, you always seem to say the right things at the right times. So, thank you.

  2. Congratulations on the award. You are very nice. You always leave such kind comments and they are very much appreciated.

  3. Congratulations. I can just ditto what Yvonne said. You do leave the nicest comments.

    And I love your posts, too.

  4. Y'know Lippy...I sent you the award, not just for what you write but because you do nice things, above and beyond writing in comments. I have a couple of encouraging emails from you still on my hard drive from a couple of years ago when I was going through some serious trials. You encouraged me privately for problems I put out there publicly. That my friend, was nice. You take care of your father-in-law, that's nice too. I could list a lot of nice things you do. I think you call it responsiblity and the "right thing" but trust me, the things you DO are even nicer than the things you write.

  5. Congratulations on the award, which you certainly deserve. You are, indeed, a good guy, and also one very good writer...

    Hi Jimmy,
    Congratulations on a well-deserved award. In a word, it's "nice." Seriously, I think the "Nice Matters" Award is a great concept ... it really spreads goodwill online!

    Congratulations. You are not only nice but I think a terrific and nice father...your kids a really lucky.


  8. You really are too kind. I read this last night and didn't know what to say. I shook my head and thought that in comparison to all you have done and are doing, what I did was nothing. Easy. And in the long run it probably helps me even more than it helps you. Keep spreading your niceness, my friend. The world needs more people like you.

  9. Congratulations hon! Well deserved! (Hugs) Indigo

  10. I must be going mad, I swear you go this already? If you didn't, I am mad!
    Congrats mate :-)

  11. You are definitely very nice, and you are very deserving of this award! :)

  12. Sorry for the delay, but thank you for the award! You're easy to be nice to - as everyone has already said, you leave the nicest comments and are very compassionate. Thank you for being my blog friend!

  13. You so deserve this award. You are truly a nice guy!!!!
    Love ya babe!!


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
