I am passing on this, ‘Lovely Blog Award’ to blogs written by Warrior Women. Women who are carrying on in spite of illness and disease. Also, to the warrior women who are dedicating their time to a blog that offers education, support and healing for victims of domestic abuse and violence.
You can visit The ‘lovely’ blogs’ who are receiving this award by clicking the provided links in the list below.
This is a blog by a creative woman living life with fibromyalgia, and like most of us, other illnesses as well. She shares how she manages to find joy in crafts and the love of her family, including her 4leggeds.
I’m a little biased because myfoggybrain is one of the first people I connected with and she continues to leave me very nice comments. Aside from my personal regard, I find her blog inspiring and if you like crafts, such as scrap-booking, papercraft or making cards, then take a little trip over and visit her blog.
Thank you MyFoggyBrain
This is a blog written by a mother who is brave and strong. She tells us honestly and candidly of her experience raising a son challenged with a mental illness.
Victoria carries on and walks forward in the face of circumstances that present her with a life of living moment by moment. Revealed in her blog is her appreciation for the precious peaceful moments in time.
Thank you Victoria.
This is a blog that takes me into a peaceful place of healing and learning. CZ is a gifted writer, experienced and educated in her subject. Her blog offers creative and fascinating metaphors, along with well-researched facts to educate people about Narcissism, along with offering support for victims of narcissists.
I have personally found her articles life changing.
Thank you CZ.
Leslie Sigal Javorek, at IconDoIt, I present this award to you.
Leslie is a talented artist, which you will see if you visit her blog. She creates awesome free icons and they aren’t you’re average icons. They have interesting stories and tales and imagination behind them.
Leslie also lives with a terminal illness — and LIVES she does! I am personally deeply inspired by her positive attitude towards living.
“I am among those, both cursed and blessed, stubborn as hell and determined to survive.” Leslie Sigal Javorek.
Thank you Leslie!
This is a blog written by a young woman who lives with several serious ‘invisible’ illnesses, one of which is fibromyalgia. One of the things I always remember about her is that she must take a long bus ride to see her doctors. That one thing would wear me out!
“Because I don’t look sick, and don’t always need mobility aids, people tend to assume I’m in perfect health–that I’m perfectly ‘normal.’ ” jeneli
Thank you jeneli!
lostintranslation, “An Impetuous Buffet of Loving Indulgence” — I present this award to you.
This is a blog written by a woman who loves to write, which I very much appreciate. Some of us just have to write. She has a refreshing youthful spirit and questioning mind, the latter of which seems to get many of us a bit, ‘lost in translation.’
“I am just a girl who loves to write…..in circles…in squares….in the margins…on fresh sheets of notebook paper…on hotel stationery…in different colors…in cursive or print or Word…on napkins….on your soul…from my heart.” lostintranslation
Thank you lostintranslation!
This is a blog written by a woman living with multiple chronic illnesses. Mo writes frankly about the pain and fatigue living with these illnesses. Her blog also reveals her gratitude for family. She has found the love of her life, (who I wish had a single twin!). Surely, it’s a blog worth visiting!
Thank you Mo!
To the recipients:
You can decorate your blog with your award, or you can simply stash it into your box of goodies, where you may go when you are worn down and need little treasures — things reminding you that you are not alone. Or, simply, just to let you know that one person appreciates your work. I believe our blogs are very much a part of our work in this world.
This award is a way to say thank you to another blogger, or your favorite blogs. You may present this award to a blog(s) of your choice by posting it on your blog and giving a link to the blog(s) you awarded, along with a little about why you chose the recipient(s).
To see more clearly than my foggy brain can tell you about accepting this award, please go see Rosemary here.
A note as to creating this list. At first it felt a bit daunting. I was too tired. Brain fog had the best of me. I can write a post without too much thinking involved. I hope that doesn’t sound like I don’t care about what I ‘post’ because I certainly do — but in general, writing a post is a relatively easy task.
I wondered if my giving an award would cause you to feel obligated to post it on your blog, which is why I mildly modified the, “criteria,” and again, I’m trusting is okay by Rosemary.
As I worked a little on this post, now and then, it gradually became an insightful and enjoyable experience. I’ve learned a little more about each person through the process of describing her blog. I’ve been reminded of my gladness over stumbling upon and having the honor to communicate with these women.
Thank you Rosemary, for the gift, and the ensuing inspiration of this post.
Mom says thanks!
Tiny here! I know, I'm cute.
