I Got an Award!!!
In the midst of my end of summer picnicking Rickismom from Beneath the Wings just gave me my very first blog award!!! I am so excited!!!
Now comes the hard part. I have to pass it on to 7 other blogs... this is tough becasue I follow way more than that and I am very loyal to all of them. The people I read are all believers and I like their writing--they provide blogfood for me.
(I really hate leaving anyone out--everyone I follow deserves an award for a different reason. These 7 are great and check my blogroll for other very good reads. And I will be updating that this week too!!!)
Chewing the Fat. Dave writes as a professional (and a believer) who has worked with folks with cognitive disabilities and as a wheelchair user himself. He is a great storyteller--committed, touching, humorous, it's all there.
Equal Not Special. This is a group blog--from Australia (I think.)Interesting points of view.
Lovely and Amazing. This is written by the mom of 2 kids, one of whom has Down syndrome. Wonderful writing--about herself, her family and sometimes current disability issues when they raise their heads.
Pipecleaner Dreams. Debbie, mom of teenagers, some of whom have disabilities. Reflections on life and issues and gratefulness.
Sweet Perdition. Reflections of Tera on her life and on disability issues. Very insightful.
Therextras. Barbara gives lots of information about movement and development from her background as a PT and OT with personal reflections and diverse analogies, and humor that make the information accessible and interesting. (I can't get this page to open at the moment--will post the link later.)
Wheelie Catholic. Ruth posts often about faith, issues, sports, poetry, literature, hints, videos, interesting stuff and personal reflections. Always something interesting to read.
(Edited to fix a couple of links--if you tried before and were led astray, try again!! T-)
I am the mother of three, wife of one. I am a Partners in Policymaking graduate and a committed disability advocate. I want to catch up on my scrapbooking, learn more about art-journaling, get my house in order, read all the books I have set aside to read and change the world--not necessarily in that order. The opinions in this blog are my own and not those of any of employers.
