The Liebster Award

Liebster

First and foremost, I would like to thank http://indacampo.wordpress.com/ for this blogging award.  Please check out her blog posts by clicking on the link and giving her a like.  I have to say, I really enjoyed sourcing out bloggers to nominate for this award.  Under 200 followers is the criteria.  This is a great way to increase their exposure.  I myself am just sneaking in just under the wire!

This is a whole lot of work accepting this award.  Though, it is one of the more fun awards to work on.  I enjoyed it immensely!  As it is very time consuming, I will certainly understand if you have time constraints and cannot accept the award!

I look forward to reading the responses.  😉  Gracias.

  1. I think this the best award acceptance I ever read! You actually said something about yourself. 😉 I din’t know you were disabled??? The cannot be true. You’re joking. Most of the time I know when you’re serious. but… I am just awful. I never respond to the awards. I mean to do it, but I just never do. Sigh… Congratulations!

    • Thank you for the compliments. Yes I am disabled. The worst is the non-ending neck pain and headaches from nerve compression in my neck. The rest just adds to it :/

      • You know, you write like a twenty-something. I thought you were your daughter’s age. Neck pain is the worst, I think, because it seems to envelope the whole head! Surely, there is something to be done about it.

        Regardless of the pain, you write so very well. I think most people would only dream of living the way you do. 🙂

      • I spent many many years working with youth and young adults in several different capacities. I certainly don’t feel my age in my mind, though much older physically.

        To be done? Cervical fusion, and I’m not ready to risk being a quad.

        Living the way I do … jejeje … I wish I had had the fortitude in my youth to have done then, what I am doing now! It’s never too late 😉
