Mommy’s Escape 6.0

{January 26, 2009}   Gratitude overdue

It is funny how friendships are – even the virtual ones – without saying a word or a thought, your friends find ways to make you smile and know that there is a purpose to this life, no matter how hard the days may get or how far the future looks.

At this time, I am saying thanks to those friends who in their special ways have found the way to turn my days around without me even telling them I needed a pick me up.

I received these awards from these friends who are not just friends, they are sisters in the same path of life that I walk – they are autism mommies. Although we share one common thing, are lives are anything but! Even though, we have bonded together through this circle of trials and triumphs to remind each other that regardless of the differences of our children, they are our gifts from above and they are just as special as all the other children in this world!

The first mommy, is Danette over at Everyday Adventures. She has bestowed upon me these wonderful awards that have made me smile!

This award is meant for people who are positive, show gratitude, and of course: make lemons out of lemonade!

The rules for this award are that you post the graphic for it, write a post that links back to the giver, and then pass it on to up to ten others. Leave a comment on the blogs that get the award, so they know what’s happened.

The rules for these awards are:
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

Of course, the other yummy mummy that sent me the next award was the rainbowmummy herself over at Organizing the Jelly Beans.

This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!

Since all my blogging friends are spectacular in their own unique ways, I am bypassing the “rules and regs” for these awards and bestowing them to ALL OF YOU!!!! Yes, that means you too! Yeah, you the one reading this and not believing that I am generous enough to do such a thing – I could never forget about YOU!

So take these awards and post them proudly and pass them on if you’d like. If you already have one of these, well, you can still accept it and be gracious about it – no need to be picky now!!

Just know that you all are special to me and since I have joined this crazy world that is blogging, I have learned so much about so many awesome people and even more so of myself!
