glowing in the woods: june 2008

GITWaward_badge.jpg It is a little hard to believe that yet another month had gone by, and it is time again to annouce our monthly "Glowing in the Woods" award! It was head-breaking to decide who gets the award--all these pieces are beautiful, poignant and touching. Each is a treasure you pick up and fondle and admire and have a hard time putting down. It is amazing how some find the words to those feelings we have been struggling to put our finger on.

This month we honour C. at My Resurfacing for Linus carries one, too -- an eloquent metaphor to the grief that bereaved parents feel. Wrap your heart around this post that is hard to tear away from.

Remember to nominate your favourites every month: posts that move you, resonate with you--posts we all need to share.

As mentioned last month, we are listing the nominees so you can all see how hard it is to choose who to give the award to. So much thanks to all who handed in nominations!

June's nominees:

Angie at Bring the Rain for Clay

Aite via Glow in the Woods for How to be there for your friend

Alice at An Empty Chair at our Table for Leagues of grief

Antigone at Antigone Lost for Hopeless
