You Inspire Me Award.

Award From Kris @ Behold The Metatron.

Was pleasantly surprised and delighted the other day by getting the You Inspire Me Award from Kris @ Behold The Metatron.

Lovely of her to think of me, I am very touched to be given this award by Kris, inspiring each other is very important I believe for us all.

Will very much enjoy passing this award on to some of the blogs that inspire me, would like to pass it on to all the blogs that I read as they all inspire me.

Sadly I will not be able to do that as my index fingers are not functioning so well due to the weather changes here.

Having to choose some does not detract from the fact that I think they are all good blogs, that all inspire me and I hope many others too.

I shall enjoy choosing the blogs to give the You Inspire Me Award from Kris @ Behold The Metatron and hope they too will enjoy passing the award on.

Here are some of the blogs that inspire me:

Stephany @ soulful sepulcher

I am on a journey. on a journey. Take a walk with me. Life is short. So stand tall.
"Always go too far, because that's where you'll find the truth."~Camus

Ana @ Hella Heaven

" To see what is in front of one's nose requires a constant struggle." George Orwell

S.S-O @ Multiple Sclerosis & Me

Dianne @ A Stellarlife

Living a life with Multiple Sclerosis and all the rest. This blog will include my views on current events, disability issues, entertainment and silliness, politics, health issues, and I am sure to offend some; but the celebration of diversity is my main goal.

Judy @ Peace Be With You

On the MS Journey
About My Poems
Haiku poems in triptych allow me to distill the MS experience into very few words. While these poems have journal-like qualities, they are not my daily journal. They merely represent what I or someone I know will have experienced on the MS journey. That said,
My poems will span
the emotional spectrum.
That is what I live.

A smile may lift me
past my MS challenges.
I share that with you.

Sometimes sadness trumps
easy laughter and resolve.
I will write then too.

Andy @ Jughead's Baltimore Blog, Our Life With Multiple Sclerosis

These are the things that make me scratch my head and say "Whaaaaaa"?

Mary @ Travelogue for the Universe

A rambling train of thoughts about the universe and our micro solar system consisting of our dear Sun and other planets in a magnetic dance while we hurtle through space on the face of a rock and stare at flat screens where we attempt to connect while we detach.

Rei @ NecROSEphelia

An endless symphony of blasphemy

Sherry @ Word Salads or the Demyelination of Me

Living single with multiple sclerosis and the loss of a child
Janis @ just breathe janis
Gerry @ Broken Dreams

Crazy Cris @ Here and There and Everywhere

Odds and Ends, Random Thoughts, Funny Observations, picked up from Here and There and Everywhere.

Kimberly @ My Journey with Multiple Sclerosis

Every journey starts with a single step. My journey started "officially" in March 2006. Now, four years into my journey, I often find myself amazed at how this disease taught me a lot....about me. I find the hot air balloons a perfect representation of my journey, with all it's ups and downs....I still soar.
Marie @ Nourish: Living, Laughing Whining

Webster @ halt stop forget relax

Living a life with MS. This is a place where I say what I want; I can criticize, be rude, and fart out loud if I need to. I can and will get pissed at my MS, but prefer to work along with him. Usually I am well-mannered and gracious and behave myself. So do come in and ride along with me.

I was diagnosed with MS in my late 30's, but was having symptoms in my early 20's. The past six years, I've slowly gotten worse. Then, I began Tysabri. I call it my miracle drug. After three infusions, my balance and leg strength had improved to where I was able to take walks with my husband and my dog. My diagnosis has been changed to SPMS.

Mitch @ Enjoying the Ride

I have Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis and sit in an iBOT wheelchair all day. So why do I lead such a contented life?

Kelli @ GUMBO

A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Family, friends, daily challenges, living with chronic illness and disability and more....

Juli @ Tales From the MS Front

assorted rants and maybe some silly things about having MS

Amelia @ Tales of Life with Multiple Sclerosis

In 2002 I got the earth shattering news that I could possibly have Multiple Sclerosis. In 2003 that news was confirmed. I was 29 years old. I wanted to start this blog to go over the last few years of dealing with this illness and look forward to the future as it happens. If I can give hope to just one person, that life isn't over when you get life changing news, then this will have been worthwhile!

Cranky @ Musings of a Cranky Caregiver

A Blog About the Random Stuff that Floats Through My Brain

Tara @ Living Day to Day with Multiple Sclerosis

iving with Multiple Sclerosis is a daily battle. MS is the invisible disease or at least for most people. We fight many emotional and physical symptoms all the time. We need as much support as we can get. However due to the invisible symptoms we tend to not get a lot of support and that brings on more emotional stress which in return brings on more MS symptoms. A Vicious cycle.

Gina Castle @ Gina Castle: Traditional Batik on Silk

Welcome to my gallery! Batik is an ancient Javanese art form of design on fabric. It is a process of applying hot wax on cloth then dyeing it. To "add" color, the process is repeated several times. Each piece is individual.

Blinders Off @ Living-With-MS
Living with multiple sclerosis is like a box of chocolate. You never know how it will affect you the next minute, hour, or day. I refuse to let MS control my life...what about YOU.

Thank you, Herrad. You inspire me!

Anonymous said...

Thank You Herrad:

Being the continual giving treasure chest of heart felt jewels and soulful golden nuggets that you are, I will accept this award humbly knowing all to well that the depths of the inspiration I so earnestly provide work like a powerful laxative upon the giant toilet of

I'm quite sure that took much effort on your part to fashion such a long, thoughtful, and giving post.

Though in all truth it is your stellar example and indelible spirit that shines as the true inspiration to be justly recognized and celebrated here on these wonderful blog pages and in your own personal courageous journey exemplified to the world.

I have been unfortunately horribly remiss commenting here as of late. I have been preoccupied out slaying dragons as well as plundering the castles of ogres and thieves.

I hope the joy of life shines upon your presents with warm loving embrace each and everyday my friend.

Take good care and be of great joy.
