3) Post the award on your blog
4) Best of all - bask in the glory, have fun and share the love!
I had a hard time only choosing five because I love all the blogs I read... which is why I read them. However, it needed to be done, so my five picks are these (and yes, they are all CF blogs because most of the others that I follow are private family blogs or blogs that have far more than 200 followers):
The author of this blog, Emilee, also has cystic fibrosis, but aside from that she has two adorable children (both of who's birth stories are pretty miraculous), a great sense of humor and more faith than most people I know... combined. She has been such an inspiration to me on several occasions and I'm so happy to have met her.
Confessions of a Cyster
Stacey's writing is informative, heartfelt and oftentimes very funny. She hasn't been updating as frequently as I'd like (I'm pretty selfish that way) but if you go take a look around her blog, I guarantee you'll find something you like and most likely, you'll learn something new.
Let Me Fly
Jamie is another wife and mom living with CF, but our similarities don't end there. We share similar interests and life views; on several occasions we have found ourselves hospitalized at the same time, thinking the same thing, or dealing with eerily similar issues in life. Jamie is my Cyber Soul Cyster, and I simply adore her. She blogs about her struggles with CF, her adventures as a mom and about life in general.
Let Your Life Speak
This is a hard one for me to write about because the last time that Summer posted was over a year ago. Soon after Summer and I became friends, she passed away. Another life taken by CF way too soon. I've probably read all her posts three times by now, but her blog remains a favorite of mine and I still find myself wandering over there every now and then. When I'm having a particularly rough time, I can often find comfort and inspiration in her words. She'll never know how much our short friendship touched my life.
Love to Breathe
Just read a couple of Somer Love's posts and you'll see why I love Love to Breathe. Somer is upbeat, funny and always full of helpful hints and advice. Head on over and get to know Somer and her fur babies, Ocsar and Lilly Love.
Seriously, I have to stop now because I could go on and on talking about blogs that I love. Thanks again for this award, Colleen!
