Awards that have been presented to Joy2MeU & Joy to You & Me Web Sites

These are latest awards received by (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

Joyously inspirational Spiritual book - Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls
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. 

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

Some of these sites are no longer in existence - so I have removed the links but left the award posted. 
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.
Healing Hurting Hearts Award
The Joy to You & Me Web Site has been selected for an award called Healing Hurting Hearts - for helping in that healing. 

We are happy and proud to accept this award and to be associated with Laura's Lee - the Web Site that originated the award.

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 site.

  "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
If I was granted a single wish.
It would be to tell you
"You've made a difference to this starfish"

An Award from

"You sent an email requesting your site to be viewed for A Circle of Light award.  I apologize for taking so long to get back to you, we receive several requests daily and since I only choose one recipient a month I am overwhelmed.  I went to your extremely informative site and I would like to honor you and your site by presenting you with the Circle of Light award for September, 2003."  Rev. Cassandra Anaya, Ph.D. Clairvoyant Psychic Inutive Counselor

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 you." 

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 Home 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.
