You Are What You Feel – And I Feel Really Good…

..right now.  Doesn’t mean I always feel good, but in this moment, I am happy, thankful, giggly and humbled.  And I’m lucky or blessed – or both.  I am the recipient of another award – and this really feels like an embarrassment of riches.

A word though about the person who acknowledged me in this wonderful way.

I received the Reader Appreciation Award from supertucksmama.  I read her blog as often as she posts.  She wrote that my blog “..keeps [her] spirits lifted.  Daily.  Promise.”  The irony is that she so inspires me.  Her heart reveals itself in her words, she offers up the beauty and the frustrations of motherhood;  her challenges in raising a super hero are palpable, her commitment to educating her readership about autism unparalleled and she embraces it all with the passion that only Super Tuck’s mama could have.  I am the better for being allowed to share in a small part of her life, her generosity, humor and spirit.  Nope, we’ve never met, yet she is arguably one of those incredibly special people that enter your life in a serendipitous way.  My thanks to her are huge, and she is deserving of those thanks many times over.  Please check out her blog when you get a moment.  You’ll be the better for it.  Promise.

I will answer the questions that are attached to receiving this award and nominate others in my next post.  Today though I just wanted to say thank you and spend a moment sending a big hug to Tuck’s mom.

  1. I really am overwhelmed – and so grateful. There is an awful lot of talent in the world, so many people who inspire (Steven Covey.. :-)) or make us laugh or make us think. In the great big scheme, I know I’m just a little ladybug wandering up someone’s window. Thank you thank you thank you – for always reading my posts, commenting and giving me more support than anyone really deserves. I want to be able to do the same for you..

    1. You are always incredibly supportive, and I appreciate it more than I can say. I’m a big believer in putting out what you’d like to get back–it’s brought some amazing folks into my life, present company included. 🙂

    dear you
    Just posted a link on my fb page.
    Another award, so richly deserved, and your thanking the reader who nominated you further validates why all these awards are coming your way. I love you and celebrate you today and always. Having spent a lifetime with children with special needs I thought the blog referenced above connects with the reader who nominated you. As we celebrate the beauty of your words my friend, we are also given pause to count our blessings. And to “SupertucksMom” – a parent ready, willing and able to advocate and love unconditionally is a special ed teachers dream come true. Kudos to you as well. How lucky for both you and your child that you have each other.
