A Little Sunshine

It is day 3 of stimulation injections (I have done 2 so far). The first one was okay enough. Kind of uncomfortable and very weird feeling but not too bad. Last night's though hurt a whole lot more and even bled a bit and now today my tummy is sort of sore and bruised feeling. I was good and worked out this morning though, and that somehow seemed to help. In addition to the stims, my face is still in a half-paralyzed state and I fear I may become addicted to the eye drops I have to use in my left eye since it doesn't blink. In spite of all of this I have managed to stay in a surprisingly good mood, but I can of course still use a little extra ray of sunshine during a time like this which is why I am so grateful for not one but two wonderful blog awards from two lovely ladies!

My first award and little beam of sunlight is from the lovely Em at Creating Hack Spawn. I very much enjoy reading her blog and following her journey and I am so grateful for her support and this award!

For this award I am supposed to post where I would like to be in 10 years and then of course pass the award on to other bloggers.

In ten years I will be 37 years old and by then I hope to have (at least) two children and living happily with them and my wonderful husband. I also plan to be again working where my passion lies and providing outreach and education on the issues of victimization, particularly sexual assault and domestic violence in addition to being a very involved mommy and wife. I also hope to do lots more travel within the next ten years with one of the highlights being a cruise of the Greek Isles!

For this award I really can't pick just 10 of you that I want to pass this on to because I really want everyone to have it and I want to hear where everyone sees themselves in 10 years! It's a cop-out I know but if you are reading this then I give this award to you!

My second award and ray of sunshine comes from the wonderful Jenn at The Road to Happily Ever After. I completely share her sentiment that one of the great things about blogging is
"connecting with people...finding people who I normally wouldn't cross paths with and having them become a part of my journey (and following their own)." And with that I am honored to have her be a part of my journey and very grateful for this award!

So here's the deal:
  • Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
  • Pass the award onto 12 bloggers. (6 new blogs for you and 6 oldies but goodies)
  • 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.
6 Blogs I Newly Follow
1. A Nuttier Life

And as always there are so many other bloggers that I just adore and want to pass this award on to as well, but I try to spread the award love around every chance I get. All of the blogs I read and their wonderful writers give me reasons to smile (albeit a half smile, thank you, Bell's Palsy!) and so just like the 1st award on this post, this one is also truly for everyone reading! Thank you so much for supporting me and following my journey!
