Awards that have been presented to Joy2MeU &
Joy to You & Me Web Sites
These are latest awards received
by Joy2MeU.com (YANA means You Are Not Alone)
Hello Robert, our judges have each reviewed your website, and we are very
pleased to award you our bronze
awards. While your site contains much wonderful information, we assess
on many other things besides content. Actual content only picks up 30%
of the points.
You will find 2 other awards also. One is the YANA [you are not alone]
award from my Hugs
R us site. This is unrated, and offered to excellent websites like
yours, that have a basic mental health theme, and yours certainly qualifies.
I am still working my way through it. You have done a wonderful job of
putting 'it' all down for your readers and I commend you for your hard
work and sincerity. This is my first YANA of 2006. You will
also find my Whimsy award, also non-rated, that I give [on a whim] to websites
that I personally like.
WOW! I am really at a loss for words - unusual for those who know me.
I find great strength reading your pages. They are truly inspirational,
and I thank you for writing them.
Congratulations and well done

So, here is our new awards page - posted
February 1, 2000 - just in time for the first anniversary of the Joy2MeU
web site on February 4th, and a few weeks before the Two year anniversary
of the Joy to You & Me web site whose first crude pages were uploaded
February 28th 1998.
Some of these sites are no longer in existence - so I have removed the
links but left the award posted.
Below are awards the sites have won previously - in the order that they
were received. In other words, the award just below - the Healing
Hurting Hearts Award from Laura's Lee was the first award received, the
cool Poo bear award from Many Paths next, etc. The plan is to post
the newest awards on top of this page for a month or 6 weeks until the
next update and then move them down below in the chronological order they
came in. I am doing it this way so that the first awards don't get
lost at the bottom of the page - because I really appreciated them when
they came in, and don't want to forget that. The links associated
with the awards are all set to open in a separate browser window so that
you can check out their sites and then just collapse the window to be back
at this page. (Of course, these are the kind of sites that one could
spend days and days exploring because of the special unique gifts they
each have to offer - enjoy.) ~ Robert
|These pages are designed to be viewed with a
normal size 12 point font. If the type looks large and the pages
out of balance it could be the setting in your browser (Explorer usually
comes set at 16 point.) In Netscape the setting is in: Preferences
(under Edit); Appearance; Fonts: Variable width font. In Explorer
Preferences (under Edit); Language/Fonts. In AOL pull down
menu under My AOL and choose preferences. Select the symbol on the
left that is WWW and then click on Advanced settings. In the upper
middle it says Text Size - 5 settings from smallest to largest.
Many Paths contains vast resources for personal and spiritual
growth, and specializes in life changing events in people's lives with
excerpts from the book, "Life and the Art of Change." To enhance this topic,
a scheduled and hosted chat forum is available, as well as an e-mail discussion
group. Art, poetry, music, 400 quotations and over 400 pages of excerpts
from many other books are only a few of the features found at this huge

Hurting Hearts - for helping in that healing.

Lee - the Web Site that originated the award.

The person who presented this award was so inspired
by my site that she created a special Wallpaper for Windows users that
is really beautiful. This is a quote
from the web page on which you may find the wallpaper (right.)
"When I found Robert Burney's award winning
site, Joy2MeU on codependence and healing the inner child; I was inspired
to make this wallpaper for all of us who have sometimes felt unlovable
because we're not perfectly lovable."

Until I posted an new award in early February, I had the poem below - and
the link to a poem lower right - on my New page instead of any awards,
since the poems are a special kind of award. I will now be leaving
them on this page.
Here is a poem that has been posted on the internet as a thank you to
me and my web site. Very cool. ;-) This poem was written by
Rose and is on the My
Wish page of her web site.
With an aching heart,
Over loaded with grief.
Pulled up the search engine,
Looking for some relief.
Guided to the site,
Of a man I've never met.
Thank the God/Godess for
This wonder called the Net.
No longer do I feel lost,
I'm learning to deal with the pain.
The light at the end of the tunnel,
Is no longer another train.
Is the website address
Here I'm learning the tools
Sorting my life, the mess.
The information that is there,
Has really thrown me.
On so many pages on this site,
My wounded self I do see.
Robert Burney of http://joy2meu.com
If I was granted a single wish.
It would be to tell you
"You've made a difference to this starfish"

Circle of Light award for September, 2003." Rev. Cassandra Anaya,

Another Poem dedicated to Joy2MeU - Terror Within
In September 2002 I got this e-mail from Finland:
"In my recovery from childhood wounds, codependency and finally
from falling in love (against my will) with an emotionally unavailable
addict, your book and your website have been my main source of hope. I
learned that I was another addict. Less than a year ago my life collapsed
but already now it is better than ever. I dedicated a web page for
The poem is called the Terror Within, and carries this line at the bottom
of the page: "This page is dedicated to Robert Burney whose writings
have given me the courage to face the terror within."
The dedicated page Terror
Within is one of many pages including recovery poems on the web site
of Healing Eagle. In January of 2004
Healing Eagle wrote me to let me know that he and some friends are translating
pages from my site into Finnish. I have added links to those pages
on the index page for the Romantic Relationships
section of my site.
