Spirit Animal Award Nomination

Recently, well over a month ago; Jennie from A Teacher’s Reflections nominated me for the Spirit Animal Award Nomination.  Jennie is a 30 years plus school teacher to preschool kids.  And from the posts I read on her blog, I know she is the best teacher those kids can have.  Please take time to visit her blog and Jennie I apologize for taking so long to respond, that is not the usual me, but then I am not in my usual state of mine recently.


The rules of the award:

– Thank the blogger who nominated you, and link back to his/her blog.

– Post the award picture on your blog.

– Write a short paragraph about your blog and what it means to you.

– Answer this question: if you could be any animal, what would it be?

– Choose and notify ten nominees


What does my blog mean to me?

This blog at this time in my life is so much more than I would have ever expected.  I started my blog a little over 16 months ago for reasons of non-other than to write about my life; where I had been, what is occurring today, where am I going into the future.  That was it, nothing really special in that I am just an ordinary person living an ordinary life.  Over the past year as you know life threw me a curveball, an unexpected event that would lead me through a journey with cancer.  This blog now is an important part of my support that I have from you; my supporters, my cheering section, my shoulders to cry on, my rocks of faith.  In the past couple of weeks, I thought about giving up my writings and completely deleting my WP blog.  That is how this cancer is affecting me; it wants me to give up and call it quits.  But, I am stronger than that and I have you my wonderful friends, who I truly appreciate seeing each and every day.  So my blog will continue.


What animal would I choose to be?

This was and is a difficult question for me as I honestly do not know what animal I would be.  There are animals that display strength, animals that are weaker in appearance; then there are animals that are fighters and animals that are cuddlers.  I think I am all the above depending on the day, how I am feeling and what I am in need of to take on each day as it comes.  Today with the current happenings in my life, I choose a canine, yes a dog.  Maybe that comes across as an easy pick amongst all animals in the world.  But think about it; dogs display strength and sometimes appear weak in appearance; they can be fighters and they can certainly be cuddlers.  My dog Roxy depends on me as I depend on others.  I choose to be a dog.
