Thank you very much to Susan Barclay for nominating me for the ‘Very Inspiring Blogger’ award. As my mom, you may be a little biased, but I am honoured to receive this recognition. Sorry that it took me a while to make this responding post. I’ve been bad in the past of keeping up with reading other people’s blogs, but it’s been something I’m working on. I finally feel like I have a few great bloggers I can share! Click on Susan’s name above to see her blog, “Notes From Innisfree”.

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and link to their blog.

Blogs I Am Nominating
1. Lashes-to-Lunges – Because I find her posts challenging to me and inspiring.

These are the blogs that stood out to me. A small number can be just as enriching as a large number.
3 Inspiring Things From This Past Week
1. The number of people who have been supporting me through a difficult time is very inspiring. It’s encouraging to know that I have some great friends and family here for me!
2. On the topic of family, is my younger brother! I find him very inspiring. We have a great relationship, so much so that people often mistake us for dating (what?! No! Siblings!). He’s dramatic and always knows how to make me laugh. He likes spending time together, or even just having me around as company while he’s doing something else. He’s thoughtful and inspiring in his character.
3. An afternoon hangout with a good friend. I found out that in the past my friend had gone through some of the problems I’m struggling with now. It was inspiring to know someone who has gone through the grinder and come out on the other side healed and happy.
