The Bow Award

Thank you Ms. ME for The Bow Award! I'm glad you enjoy my blog. I, as everyone else who blogs, often struggle with a topic or exactly "how" to say something.

So, a year ago, when I started blogging (can you believe it will be a year July 31st?!), I promised myself I would write following ONE simple principle. Keep it honest, even when it was painful. (Heck, ESPECIALLY when it's painful). For me, blogging has been a great therapy. It's helped me put emotions, feelings and frustrations into words. Words that I may not have been able to find any other way. Blogging has also helped me learn a lot. About myself, MS, and the experiences of other MS sufferers and how very different our MS experiences are from one another. An example of this was well written by Tara as she wrote about a wedding she attended in which there were several guests there with MS, all effected very differently.

The one thing in common we all seem to have (besides MS) is a fighting spirit. That special something that keeps us going, putting one foot in front of the other (literally or figuratively). Often when it's the very last thing we want to do. I think it takes a very special type of courage to do that. On that note, I'm passing The Bow Award on to all the other MS bloggers out there, who like, me "Keep it honest" and have that very special courage that keeps you going, even when it's the very last thing you want to do!

Thank you so much for the BOW AWARD. It means a lot to me that you feel I deserve such an award. I will take some time and pass this along to some well deserving fellow Bloggers.
