". . . our stories are what make the difference, and if we can tell them honestly we can hope to help each other. In the end, we have nothing to offer each other but our stories." ~ Emma Lou Thayne

Sugar Doll Award

WOW!! Thank you Emily!! Emily at Emily's Thought Blog gave me the Sugar Doll award.  
We got connected recently when my friend Karen at A Peek at Karen's World featured her and I had to go check her out! Then I did an awareness feature for my other friend Annette about her little boy on Epilepsy and Emily related with it... 
You SEE how we find each other and offer support and friendship?? It's a BEAUTIFUL thing!!  ;D

Once you have received the Sugar Doll award, 
you have to follow... A Few Rules

1.  Thank the person that gave you the award
2.  Share 10 things about yourself
3.  Pass this award onto 10 bloggers you recently discovered and think are fantastic
4.  Contact the bloggers and let them know you picked them for the award

10 Things About Me
1.  I'm bipolar and would love to educate the world that the STIGMA of the disorder is NOT reality. We CAN accomplish great things and live a good life when we seek to get the help we need. We DO have obstacles to overcome. If people would stop playing into the stigma and try to understand, the world will be a BETTER PLACE!   OK... ALSO, perhaps more people will seek the help they NEED to live a more productive life, as well.  ;D  There's even STIGMA IN the medical field... WTH?
2.  I use "...", "(((HUGS)))", and sideways smileys {  ;p  ;D  :)  etc... } WAY TOO MUCH!  ;p
3.  I use CAPS and bold as emphasis... I am NOT yelling.  ;D  WHO made up these cyber etiquette rules, anyway??? Call me REBEL...
4.  I have 6 step children (All now married with children)
5.  I have 4 biological children (1 married with DOGS, 1 in college, 1 in Jr High, & 1 in elementary)
6.  We have 16 grandchildren. I will be featuring one soon explaining his NALD and how we lost his sister at 16 months and he is fighting to go the distance at 26 months. (They said 6-16 months)
7.  The way things are and the way I PERCEIVE them aren't always the same... but SOMETIMES when people think I'm OVER reacting... I'm RIGHT on TARGET... *sigh*
8.  I am very conscious of others feelings... probably because mine have been hurt so regularly. I never purposely cause someone pain.
9.   My husband's first wife died of brain cancer. Hubby is the BEST and NEVER makes comparisons... However, it seems that the oldest never hesitates to send reminders that I will NEVER measure up. Although the others are quite supportive for the most part.
10. I am a photographer and LOVE to CREATE with my camera and PS

  Pass this award along to 10 bloggers:

awwww... I was all worked up to give a thoughtful provoking comment about my sister and her struggle with her BiPolar disorder... but then I saw my name - and the flattery won out over sweetness and light - thanks!!!

okay - response post scheduled for the morning... I will apologize right now for not being good with rules... I've always thought of them more as "suggestions" any way :) thanks so much!
