I’ve been nominated by The Other Side of Ugly for a blogger of the year award. http://theothersideofugly.com/2013/11/09/another-year-of-honor-as-a-blogger/comment-page-2/#comment-6817
Coming from Sheri is an honor for her site puts a lot of love and light out to a whole lot of followers. She’s been inspirational for me to read and follow on a regular basis. I don’t usually do anything with awards because I can never figure out the badges (and trust me people have tried to educate me to no success) and I’d return the award to all I follow. I can’t pick out just one person who inspires or moves me. You all do. There are so many of you gifted, talented, tormented, animal loving, all-over-the-map friends out there and I follow each and every one of you for your specialness. So please accept my shout out to all my blogger friends. All that said there is one man, Bill Hamilton, who I’d love to flow some loving attention to.
Bill has been living with COPD: http://dealingwithcopd.wordpress.com/about/ and writes about his uphill battle with the disease but that’s not why I’m highlighting my friend. If any of you have ever been short of breath on a regular protracted basis you’ll understand how hard it is to do anything. Back to Bill, who has a heart of gold, is an incredible story teller, gives back to his blogger family/buddies, and has just suffered the horrible loss of a young family member and had to travel to the funeral. That trip set him back with a yet another pneumonia. Thankfully he didn’t land back in the hospital this time. With all this, he keeps blogging, reaching out to and supporting his friends, and shines a light into this world that is brilliant.
I hope my friends here take a minute to stop by and meet Bill, say hello, have a look at some of his great writing (he’s lived a lot of real adventures and writes about things that will leave you laughing silly).
My friend, Bill, this one’s for you!
Love & Hugs, Paulette
