Honest Blogger

Yesterday the most surprising thing happened. A sister blogger Suzi Smith of Spirit Whispers offered me this lovely Honest Blogger Award. (click the blue link to find out more about what it means to be an Honest Blogger and to find a list of some other recipients of this award)

I Laura Rose Hegfield (sorry Suzi it's Rose...I like Grace as a middle name too though)
humbly, accept this prestigious honor into the Sisterhood of Honest Bloggers!

Thank you dear Suzi...I shall do my best to live up to the standards set out by my Honest Blogging Sisters who have come before me, sharing my story with courage, inspiring others to do the same, and to pass this award on to yet another deserving Shining many to choose from...this is the hard part...but I know who ever I pass this on to will continue spreading the love! The abundance of honestly, brilliantlty shining souls is pretty much endless so I'm passing this award on to...Rose (her blog is The Center of Myself) in honor of her most recent post The Woman In Church. This post is about being an angel here on earth through authentic compassionate action. Sometimes we are malakhim (messengers-angels) with out realizing it, other times we know exactly what we are doing. Either way it is an opportunity to do the work of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), one hug, one tear, one moment of truly being present to another persons pain, at a time. (I don't know, Suzi, maybe Rose's middle name is Grace?...she has certainly earned that name well!)

Namaste-I see the light-in All of you.


  1. Glad you got the techie stuff sorted... & rose is a great middle name! ...The sisterhood grows x

  2. Thanks again Suzi,for passing the award on to me, for the technical assistance, for your honest LOL's and for becoming a new friend/sister!

  3. Laura,

    Your first blog I am getting acquainted with. I love how this post is filled with the essence of courage and love and understanding.

    " opportunity to do the work of Tikkum hug, one tear, one moment of truly being present to another person's pain, at a time." Sage and loving words. And I often wonder what a better world this would be if we all lived by this tenet.

    Blessings and Namaste,

  4. Hi Laura,

    Congratulations! That is wonderful and you definitely are an honest blogger.

    By the way, I read your beautiful reply to my last comment. No worries about the email. My motto is unconditional love so those things do not bother me. Whenever you feel like emailing, I will be there.

    I am also so grateful that our paths crossed. You are truly a beautiful soul.

    With palms together, namaste to you too!

    Love and blessings,

  7. Congratulations on the award, Laura! It fills me with joy to have found you here and to read your thoughts and learn more through you. I am so humbled that you would pass it on to me, too. Yes, sometimes, we're given the opportunity to be malakhim , an opportunity to bring heavn to earth.

    (Grace would be a lovely middle name; I don't have one, though.)
