More Blog Love

Whoever came up with this Lemonade Award, I salute you. What a lovely idea to honor those who make a habit of making the best of things. And I am honored to receive it, even though I think that the person who gave it to me is far more deserving than I! Thank you, Alicia! Alicia writes Welcome to My Planet, a blog I love to read for her thought-provoking, emotion-filled posts as much as the humorous ones.

As all awards do, this one comes with a few rules:

– Put the Lemonade logo on your blog or within your post.
– Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude or gratitude.
– Link the nominees within your post.
– Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
– Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

But with this award, I’m going to bend the rules a little – ‘cause 10 is a lot of typin’ and linkin’ (although Alicia did a magnificent job with her list)! Frankly, in my opinion every single blog I read is worthy of this award. And so are all my friends who don’t have blogs. I learn so much from all of you, and you enrich my life immeasurably (I think I wrote about that recently). That said, I would like to nominate five blogs in particular that come to mind for this award.

First, to Tera at This Is My Reality. I’ve been reading her blog for quite some time, and she has such an enjoyable writing style that draws you in with her gracious words and insightful observations. She writes about her life in Belgium with her husband and two sons, one of whom is a teen with autism. Tera so eloquently and honestly shares her joys and fears, the ups and downs, and doing the best she can with all of it.

Also, to Nicki of Slow Down, Gym Shoe! Nicki is an exceptional writer (her fiction is incredible) and a caregiver for her nieces and nephew. She is currently doing an amazing Totschool program with the kids and is starting her own preschool. She also writes about special needs issues and inspires me with her positive outlook, no matter what’s going on in her life.

The next three are some blogs that I only recently started reading, but when awards like this go around, I usually like to highlight blogs that are new to me. I certainly look forward to reading more!

Here’s to lots more lemonade!

    I may just invent all sorts of blog awards to give you. Any constructive, positive category I can think of, you would deserve. Writing-wise, attitude-wise, informational-wise, wise-wise…you are very awardable.

    Awww, thanks, Tanya!! What a wonderful gift! Especially coming from you. Your ability to capture the moment and to put into words your feelings and insights are amazing. I get so much from reading your blog and only hope I can remember half of it when I encounter the same challenges. xo

    I love the above comment…”you are very awardable.” Too cute. And true too.

    Thanks, Tanya, I’m honored. I love the awards for being able to find out about more blogs. I’m going to think for a day about to whom to forward the award. Thanks again for all that you do.

    Thank you Tanya! That is so sweet of you to nominate me. I am totally flattered! Your blog is one of the few that as soon as I found it I had to read it all. I went backwards in your archives to know more about your experiences and I’ve gained a lot by reading your words. You have a gift for telling your story. Thanks!

    Thank you so much Tanya. It’s very special coming from someone I admire as much as I do you. I’ll be reading the other blogs you suggested, and will pass it along as soon as I have a chance! Thanks!!!
