The Semper Fidelis Award and The Field of Flowers

semper fidelis award

The Semper Fidelis Award

I created this award because I wanted to do something special for my friends on WordPress. Semper Fidelis is Latin and means Always Loyal. Loyalty means the world to me. I am very loyal myself, but I’ve got major trust issues as well. And I think trust is very important if you are sharing so much of yourself with people you meet through the internet. So I am working on that! 🙂

Why the wolves? Because wolves have very strong ties with their pack. Like a family or a great group of friends. And I just love them!

This award stands for the loyalty and love between friends.

The Rules:

  • Add the Semper Fidelis Award logo somewhere on your blog.
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Nominate 5 bloggers who’s loyalty and friendship you value and you consider being part of your ‘pack of wolves’ on WordPress.
  • Post something special for all of your nominees separately and dedicate it to them. This can be a quote, saying, poem, picture, anything you think that would fit that person.
  • Let the nominees know that you’ve nominated them.

The Field of Flowers Award

Note: I have created this new award because there are some people who I would give a field full of flowers if I could.

Not just a couple of flowers… No, a field full of them.

Because they can use it, to thank someone or because they simply deserve it. Flowers give color, flowers say ‘I Care’ and flowers are nature’s gift to us.

You give them to show someone you care or to celebrate something. Just spreading a little love and care.

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you
  • Place the award on your blog
  • Nominate 7 other bloggers and write a little something about why you would give these bloggers A Field Of Flowers
  • Let your nominees know that you nominated them

  7. HELP ! . I’ve been nominated for the Semper Fidelis award. It’s lovely type of award and I couldn’t be more pleased.

    The problem is that along the way it has been offered together with other awards and the rules seem to have been accidentally mixed. That is, to now nominate 6-12 blogs. This seems most common with other awards and would be difficult for me to nominate fewer, especially since I was nominated on that basis.

    I am sorry to face you with any dilemma, but cannot think of any other honest way to proceed. All I can do is to recommend the upgrade.

    I think everybody would be grateful if you were agreeable to the modification, particularly since it has such a worthwhile purpose, nevertheless I would not think it right to do so without your assent as the originator. What do you think ? 🙂

    With Best Regards
    Graham

    • Hey Graham!
      First of all, congratz on the award! 🙂
      I know not everyone will follow the rules the way I made them and that’s okay.
      I designed this award to honor my wolf pack and because of the rule to make something special for the ones you nominate, I thought it would be a lot of work to nominate a lot of people. Most of the other awards just ask for a couple of questions to be answered, but because the Semper Fidelis award goes to the people who you already know quite well, I thought it would be nice to honor them in a different way.
      Just know that I am a person who doesn’t mind breaking the rules herself every now and then. 😉
      So you can nominate as many people as you see fit and pass on the award the way you like. Awards are suppose to be fun! 🙂
      Lots of love
      Patty

    • Thank you so much!
      Just wanted a way to thank some amazing people I met here on WP. I am always grateful for the friends I make and the people who read my work.
      I will definitely check out more of your blog as well!
      Hope to see you around again. Lots of love Patty

  8. dear Patty, thank you so much for the very kind award! and the beautiful LOVE CRYSTALS! I wrote to you thanking you when you first posted it—but somehow I think the message got lost in cyberworld! It is a beautiful award and your personal touch for each of us was so thoughtful and deeply felt! Thank you so much! I am in the process of displaying it now! THANK YOU again! Dank je wel!

    • Thank you! Yes, Semper Fi, I know it’s the saying of the Marines as well. I was suppose to join, but life had other plans for me. 🙂
      Lots of love to you!

      • 🙂 You’re very welcome! I served The Corp actively for 10 years, now I serve them inactively (no such thing as a former Marine) 😉 as a Chaplain in the Dept of Defense. OOH RAH all that matters (in my book) is you wanted to join!

        Lots of love right back! Gentle Hugs!
