Passing the Baton....

I was honored today to be given a "Courageous Blogger Award", by Kario at http://the-writing-life.com/.
The award is given for "bloggers who are battling or have battled with physical or mental illness, those who are survivors of abuse, poverty or who have overcome other challenges in life. Those who serve in the military or work/volunteer in dangerous situations in order to provide a service or to help others. This award is for the strong, the brave and the courageous."
While I find it difficult to fit that mold, I am extremely indebited to my fellow bloggers, whether they comment or not. Their presence and their personal stories encourages me to continue writing the truth as I see it.
In turn I am passing this award to The Perpetual Search for Personal Nirvana at http://myownwoman.blogspotcom/.

Her honesty re: her life, career and her family are refreshing, and introspective.

I urge you to visit and spend some time on her blog and also urge her to write more and join our circle.

Don't fit the mold? Hell, girl, you MADE the mold.

Your courage lights the way, illuminates the path, sends up sparks for the rest of us to follow.

Thanks for the intro. I'll go read MOW's work as soon as I tell you that I am, as always, proud to call you friend.
