The photo theme of the week is FACE and I am spending quite a lot of time gazing at this one, hoping that it gives me grace in the face of my mortification.

That selfless harbinger of love and assistance to souls in need, Doctor Sana, has gifted me a lovely award. I am passing it on to 5 bloggers who never fail to give me a lift:

    I fully agree with Doctor Sana, Cindy…however many subscribers you have, you should have more! A solitary “i” simply can’t be that important in the greater scheme of things, and I hope this face gifts you with grace. You deserve it πŸ™‚

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Naomi, I am over it already πŸ™‚

  2. suzicate says:

    I’ve always thought you have the face (heart) of grace.

    1. theonlycin says:

      You are very kind, SuziCate πŸ™‚

  3. bandsmoke says:

    In my thoughts and prayers – your graciousness and good heart will carry you through!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Right back on my bike, bandy πŸ™‚

  4. slpmartin says:

    Congrats on the award.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Charlie, sleep tight πŸ™‚

  5. That is something nice to have happen to you πŸ™‚ Well done!

    Wow, no room for error, huh? On the one hand it poses a challenge but on the other it is a high standard. Then again, if you usually shoot high then sometimes difficult for many is not difficult/stressful for you – but normal. Still, perfection and excellence… a fine line… I trust that there is grace for you somehow πŸ™‚

    1. theonlycin says:

      I can only hope there is grace as well as forgiveness, Lee πŸ™‚

  6. gospelwriter says:

    That face is certainly the picture of serenity…

    As a proofreader myself, I hate those planted errors with a passion – you’d think they’d have better things to do with their time than deliberately try to trip people up!

    1. theonlycin says:

      It is a tough call, I know many publishing houses do it as a matter of course, an error can be very costly, Ruth.

  7. I have thought that I’d like to be a proof-reader, since spelling mistakes and typos seem to GLARE at me – but after reading this, Cin – I’m not so sure! Wow, deliberate mistakes?? What the heck? I’m indignant for you 😦

    1. theonlycin says:

      It’s all in the past, Fired Up, I wasn’t being alert enough, i have my big girl pants on again πŸ™‚

  8. Horrid feeling, Cindy, my heart goes out to you. I hope that as this door closes, other wonderful ones open. Thank you for thinking of others at a time when most of us would be swamped in self pity. Your link is such an accolade, and coming from yourself and The Doc it has such a pedigree. All the best during these days.

    1. kate, u stay close, k? u r a keeper.

      1. theonlycin says:

        You said it, Kate πŸ™‚

    2. theonlycin says:

      Thank you Kate πŸ™‚

  9. Count Nicholas Czardas says:

    Sorry to hear that the poof reading did not go as planned.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Life’s little knocks, eh Nicky?

  10. souldipper says:

    Getting up is only the first step, Cin. It’s continuing with dignity that really counts.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Tiny steps, Amy, what will be will be … xxx

  11. johnell74 says:

    It is so easy to happen Cindy.
    I used to have to proof read technical documents, and the venom which met me when I missed something was to be believed

    Commiserations, Cindy.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks John, I once had to edit a maths book that had me tearing my hair out with fear πŸ˜‰

  12. pinkpolkadotfood says:

    I am so sorry to hear about this, but we all are just human, Cin!! I am sure they will understand this!! Hugs and XXX to you!

    1. theonlycin says:

      I do hope so, Pinky. Hugs and xxx back at you πŸ™‚

  13. You’re so honest, Cindy. Take care.. xxx

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Celia πŸ™‚

  14. nrhatch says:

    Ouch! 😳

    And congrats! πŸ˜€

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks Nancy, how’d you do the blush face:)

  15. klrs09 says:

    Have been there myself, a time or two. As Jann Arden sings in “Into the Sun”:

    hold your head high
    keep a smile upon your face
    you’ll be gone before you know it
    hold your shoulders square upon your back
    turn your face into the sun

    I’ve always loved those words and they’ve helped me many times when I’ve been feeling bad about myself or some goof I’ve made.

    I only know you through this blog-iverse, but I think you’re a pretty tough and resilient woman.

    Just keep gazing into that beautiful face — the one in the mirror.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I love the lyrics, thanks Kathy! xxx

  16. sonsothunder says:

    Thank you Cindy, I did get a comment from someone who said they popped over from your site today, and I like their site very much as well.

    Last July, after much encouragement you had given me, I think you were going through something…And look how much positive has taken place in your life sense. Not to mention all those you touched, and encouraged by just being you and doing what you do.

    I don’t know if you recall, or really even knew at the time, but you inspired muse for a few poems. I am re-posting one of them tonight, and hope it reminds you much more good has happened for in your life, (and others through you) during the past 14 months alone, than any add account exec’s scheming can ever tarnish. God Bless you for being real. “Song from Cindy”

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thank you very much Paul xxx

  17. dearrosie says:

    Sheesh! I had no idea that people could be so nasty and plant mistakes just to “catch” the proof reader.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I don’t know that it is nasty as much as cautious, Rosie, all things considered πŸ™‚

  18. MissChris says:

    To err is human – simple as that so do not beat yourself up about it!

    1. theonlycin says:

      I wore sackcloth and ashes for a few days, Chris, all scrubbed up and dusted now πŸ™‚

  19. Tilly Bud says:


    Don’t feel bad. You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t make mistakes; and we would all find you annoying. Perfection is overrated.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Bwahaha, you always make me laugh, Tilly πŸ™‚

  20. nursemyra says:

    wow – thank you Cindy, I am deeply flattered

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks for never failing to entertain, Myra πŸ™‚

      1. theonlycin says:

        All thanks to you, Doc πŸ™‚

  22. The Hook says:

    Nice answer to the challenge!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks, Hookster πŸ™‚

  23. So horrible when things slip passed us – but hey were are only human.
