      I  received this award from Sarah. It does not come with strings nor do I have to share with you 7 things. This award was created out of friendship, inspiration, joy and sorrow. It is Sarah's to share and hers alone.There is a beautiful story that comes along with it. I hope that you will take the time to read about her journey. You can find it on her blog >>>HERE
I often think of myself as a/an:
Momma Duck
Odd Duck
Sitting Duck
Lame Duck
and as of late a.....
Sneezing, wheezing, sniffling, coughing, "can't sleep at night" Duck
 (sounds like a commercial, I could be on to something)
but, NEVER or rarely EVER a SWAN

Thanks Sarah for seeing something in me that I refuse to see in myself. I don't like looking in the mirror. Or even inside my head. Therefore, I always have Vaseline or Zinc-Oxide on hand
 to keep everything hidden and distorted.  

Just because my chances of attending the Oscars, Golden Globe or Grammy Awards are not in the cards for 2010/2011, let alone squeezing into a skintight dress and strapping on a pair of stilettos, doesn't mean I can't give an acceptance speech. Right?

Thank you so much for this award.
It is a privilege. An honor. A blessing.
I dedicate this award in memory of 2 people 
that encouraged me 
and believed in me
even when I had no faith in myself.
Not a day goes by that I do not think of them.
To my beloved sister & daddy
I hope that I've made you proud.
