I would like to take this time to thank my buddy, Xena (aka “Blackbutterfly7”) for nominating me for the “Butterfly Light Award” which was created by Belinda, the publisher of her blog, “Idiot Writing” I hereby accept this award and want to say that I am both thrilled and honored to be considered for this prize.
I would like to take this time to encourage all of you to visit her site, “Blackbutterfly7” if you want to enjoy some good intellectual and thought-provoking stories. The material she presents is a testament of a person who will fight for the injustices that some people experience and who gives us enlightening information about events that are unknown to many people in the world around us.
Thanks again Xena! I will you all the best in the days to come.

How Am I A Positive Influence?
I believe that I am a positive influence on people’s lives because simply, how I live my life. I have always been a very positive person throughout my life who really enjoys being kind to people while encouraging them not only with my words but with my actions. This is one big reason why I decided to begin my blog, “Good Time Stories”: to share heartwarming, motivating and encouraging stories with others. There is nothing that makes me feel better each day than when I do something for someone then watching them smile and say thank you. It makes everything worth it!
I know that I only have to nominate one fellow blogger for this award but I am going to do a few more than that. This has got to be one of the hardest things to do because I don’t want to offend anyone but without further ado, here are my nominations….
“Knitting with Heart”
“Courage Times Three”
“A View From Under the Prep-Room Table”
Coach, I am humbled by your words. I’m so happy you accepted the award and also happy that you’re paying it forward to so many. I love you and your blog. What you share here brings a smile to my heart, and at times serious contemplation. You are truly an inspiration.
Thank you so much for your VERY kind words Xena. I really do appreciate them. I have a quick question…I am trying to post the picture of the Butterfly Light onto my page but I cannot find the “URL” How do I find / make one?
ooops. Sorry. Sometimes Word Press will include the link when you click on a photo, and sometimes it won’t. I forgot to make sure that the award is “clickable.” Here’s the URL. http://blackbutterfly7.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/butterfly-light-award-e1398556846667.gif
Thank you my friend!! Have a great day!!!
Thank you very much for the nomination. 🙂
I appreciate all your support and encouragement.

Thanks Coach Muller. I’m not sure how all this works. But I’d like to thank you for nominating me for the “Butterfly Light Award.” I really enjoy your “Good Time Stories” blog.
How I am a positive influence: I like to think that I also influence people by my actions and words. I have been volunteering with seniors for the past 7 years. I teach them painting, drawing, crafts, etc. I also try and write positive, happy stories that might cheer people up or make them laugh.
With all these rules, I think I am a bit confused as how to do all this and have links etc. but, thank you.
Thanks so much, Coach! I’m so sorry for the late reply. Will put up a post soon 🙂
