I AM a Very Inspiring Blogger!

Today, for some unknown reason, I have been incredibly anxious and panicky. In fact, I have just taken a Valium, hoping it might calm me down – and normally, I only ever take Valium at night before bed.

inspiringbloggeraward1So, it was a wonderful gift to receive the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from Wings Like Eagles in the Desert. I had never previously read this blog but, having had a look around it today, I will definitely be adding it to my list of must-reads.

  7. I am not just alone – I am lonely

  1. Thank you so much for the incredibly thoughtful nomination! I will have to think about my response on this. I have posted the award logo on my blog with a link back to this page.

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Although I am new to this site, the nomination is well deserved. I love purple too!

  3. ::APPLAUSE:: from Wisconsin, USA. What a wonderful honor and validation. What you are doing IS important and helping people!

  4. My favorite number is 12 because it’s the middle of childhood, yet the beginning of the ‘teen’ years when everything changes.
    I like purple as well, but apparently my seizure med doesn’t. I find the purple bricks disconcerting.

  5. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it.

  6. Thank you for choosing me for this award. Life has been both busy and frustrating lately but I will follow up with the requirements of this award over the next few days. Thanks again, wytewing 🙂
