Little Pieces Of Ribbon

August 02, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Another visit to the county fair and a few more little pieces of ribbon hang from the edge of the shelf.
Oh, those little pieces of ribbon really mean nothing at all.
It is just a little tiny county fair in a little tiny county with a little tiny amount of entries.
But it is still fun! 

"You don't want to make awards the reason you're doing things" -Nick Nolte

Those little pieces of ribbon really only mean one thing.
They mean you worked hard on something and you wanted to share it with someone else.

"Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it." -Mahatma Gandhi

It is after all nice to be recognized for a job well done.
Those little pieces of ribbon are pretty too.
Red, White, Blue, Purple and shiny.

"Awards are lovely and always welcome." -Max Von Sydow 

And those little pieces of ribbon are encouraging.
They help you to improve.
To learn.
To grow.

"Awards can give you a tremendous amount of encouragement to keep getting better,
no matter how young or old you are." -Alan Alda

Yes, I kind of like those little pieces of ribbon up there on the shelf.
Proudly displayed right along side those shiny pieces of acrylic.

I never had a "trophy case" before I entered my first photography competition. 

It's kind of a fun thing to see all those little pieces of ribbon.
