It happened to me again …. this time I received a note from Lori, a blogger at Creatingbeautyinthekitchen, suggesting that I visit her blog; she had nominated me for an award. What a lovely thing to happen to me. It is such an honor. Here’s how Lori said it :
“Nominee for Quintet of Radiance Award: Nancy at Alzheimer’s Wife- I actually just started following this precious woman’s blog and I was so impacted by her that I am giving her this award. I love her love for her husband and her writing is just beautiful!”
Thank you, Lori.
Not long ago I began reading Lori’s creative, lifestyle blog. She writes and photographs her healthy, low-glycemic creations made with fresh ingredients, no processed foods or refined sugars and “almost gluten-free.” It’s a lifestyle she didn’t want to adopt but did so at her doctor’s recommendation, and the outcome is that she loves her new way of eating, so, she is sharing it with us.
As I recently learned, each blog award comes with its requirements, and the Quintet (which is a combination of 5 awards) requires that you tell 26 things about yourself. 26 A-Z! So I decided to copy Lori’s clever approach. She had her mother and nephew do the describing; I will ask my new “grandchildren” Justin and Victoria to do it for me. (I did list a couple of words myself: stubborn, impatient, tenacious.)
Artistic, book lover, Charlie cat lover, dancer, Emma dog lover, fast driver, gregarious and generous, hopeful, impatient, just, kind, likes museums, music lover, nice, organizer, planner, quick-tempered, raisin-hater, stubborn, tenacious thinker, upbeat, very good friend, water skier, extra ? , young-at-heart, zest for life
Lisa at mysweetpeanut.com is the first person I nominate for this award. I feel as if Lisa and I have become good friends through our blogs, sharing our lives as Alzheimer’s caregivers; I have come to love her dog and her family –pictures and stories. AND, she’s a terrific writer.
I also want to nominate fiona and simon who tell their story of moving from Australia to Peterborough, Canada, so that Simon could go to a special school where his learning difficulties could be treated in the Arrowsmith program. Their daily experiences, travels, Simon’s progress — all of it is shared with us.
And finally, Mrs. hsg at “Before I Forget” who writes about her own diagnosis of early onset Alzheimers. She’s a writer and photographer whom I greatly admire for her openness and honesty as she shares her life in England. She also writes book reviews and her “filigree photography” is very special.
(Award Requirements: accept and thank the person who nominated you; follow that blog; write 25 words or phrases that describe you, A-Z; list a few other bloggers who you think deserve the award.)
