One Lovely Blog Award: Well, That Made My Day


One Lovely Blog Award

My lovely blogger friend, Ingebird, at rectalcancermyass, nominated me for this award!  Wowie-zowie!  I am honored and thrilled just to know my words are out in the world and people are reading them…I think her blog is awesome because of her infectious joy just being alive, because she’s thrilled about surviving cancer, because she proud to be spreading the word on healthy living…Thank you, thank you. I am honored.
