Inspirational Award

This was given to me by Herrad

She is an Inspiration ... to say the least. I am honored to have met her. I am speechless from the bravery she shows each moment of every day. I think of her often and try to check up on her to see how she's doing. She has me thinking ... about ... life, why do bad things happen to good people, Is there a God ?, is it all just happening without any control, will it happen to me, and most of all how smart this amazing woman is. The things she writes. The life she has lead. I so wish this had not happened to her. I wish I could take the pain away. I wish I could help her ...

I am truely blessed to have met her ... through her blog ... and I am very proud to say that she ... of all people ... gave this Inspirational Award ... to me. Thank You ... from my heart and soul.

May today be a peaceful one for you ...

I am giving this Award to ~

Kim .. Her blog is My Journey With Multiple Sclerosis. I find myself in awe of her spirit. She is a true inspiration to me.

Anna .. Her blog is Nature Trail. Her photos and words are poetry to my soul. In her darkest moments, she has inspired me to continue on.

Cheri .. Her blog is Cats of Wildcat Woods. She has taken in so many feral cats and kittens. My Lilly Ann was very feral ... my profile photo. She is my Kitty Cat Loving Hero.

Carol Lynn .. Her blog is Pop and Ice. She has a very busy life but still seems to keep her sense of humor. I enjoy reading about her latest adventures .. be it cat, kid, Mother or which shoes to wear.

Susan .. Her blog is Between Naps On The Porch. I have a secret dish fetish. She has the ability to make everything look absolutely 'out of a magazine' gorgeous. I feel the need to have a party which is not in my nature at all. Have to use those dishes some time don't I.

Kritter Keeper .. Her blog is Farm Tails. I wish I lived on a farm. I love hearing about her deer, cats, dogs, horses and garden.

Those are the blogs that Inspire Me. Please pick whomever you would like or as many as you would like or give it to everyone if you would like. Remember to let them know you gave it to them.

I look forward to seeing who you picked and why ...

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
