When Life Hands You Lemons...

It isn't often that I receive awards for the mediocre content found within the walls of this blog, so I tend to tell you when it does happen so that you can share in my joy.

All two times. :)

This time I have received The Lemonade Award from my friend Singing Owl at The Owl's Song. The purpose of this award is to give it to someone who is showing gratitude or a good attitude ("if life hands you lemons, make lemonade") within their life or blog.

Singing Owl's nomination read "(Chris) is not bubbling over with happiness right now. She is sad, but that is because she has had a miserable year. She needs some time to get back on her feet and then Chris will be making lemonade from the lemons again, sharing insight and wisdom and funny stuff and making me laugh with how she can tell a story of a disaster and make it humorous."

Thanks, SO. I hope to be back in the humor saddle again on a permanent basis soon. The wisdom is doubtful, though. I think you have to have that to begin with before you can lose it...

The rules are these:

1) put the logo on your blog
2) nominate blogs that show great attitude and/or gratitude.
3) have your friends pass it along to more bloggers!

And so with that, I hereby nominate Linds of Rocking Chair Reflections. She's been through the mill this past year and longer, but refuses to give up HOPE, her word for the year. Please pray for her as she travels to Bath on Monday to visit a specialist regarding the CRPS and grade 4 osteoarthritis she suffers in her knee. It hasn't been pretty for her, but rather than dwell on it she's been a help to others - me most of all.

Well done, Linds!

You SO deserve the award. Well done! Already I see your humor shining through again. Lemonade is being made. And as for Linds, a worthy candidate for the award also. I am chanting her all the way to to Bath on Monday.

Praying for your friend...and for us too--2009 has got to bring change for me. MUST! Please, God...? ((((HUGS))))

You are TOO kind! Thank you, Chris. Hope is still springing over here!
