A big thank you to makingtimeforme for the nomination. Her posts show her sincerity and compassion as well as a delightfully playful side. She has never posted a blog that has not held my interest to the very end and the variety of her posts keeps you coming back for more.
SEVEN FACTS ABOUT ME:
- I stand 5’5″ but with most of my shoes, I reach 5’10”.
- I have blonde hair (which is slowly turning silvery-white) and I have green eyes.
- I have a natural “beauty mark” on my right cheek.
- I have a tattoo on my left hip that reads “betrayed for a tramp…or two…or three.” I have one on my right shoulder that reads “sometimes the person you would have taken a bullet for is the one who fired the shot.”
- I am left-handed.
She is a sweetheart who offers endless comfort, support and encouragement even after her own devastating experiences. She clearly thinks outside the box and wraps her arms around those of us who need it. She will never fail or betray us and her words of wisdom are spoken out of love. She will never judge you or make you feel like you don’t matter.
She introduced me to “Pearl” (my crystal pendant.) She is another sweetheart who offers the same support, compassion and understanding. She good-naturedly accepts it when I slip out of character and say something completely off the wall and tries to gently guide me toward healing. She genuinely cares about others and shows it.
She is yet another sweetheart who discovered that her husband had been living another life for 25 years, unbeknownst to her. Yet, she is always there with words of encouragement for others. Many times I have been uplifted after reading one of her comments and have therefore, made it through another day. She is truly a kind-hearted person.
She is an absolute gem who understands the damage done by a narcissist (as do so many women.) She writes about “cyber boyfriends” and re-entering the dating world. She quickly forgives me when my mind periodically strays to the “dark, smutty side” and finds the humor in my musings. She loves my attempts at storytelling and encourages me in a way that I have never been encouraged before.
She is a darling who understands trauma bonds and other effects of having been exposed to a narcissist. She posts about how to heal and become whole again. She extends hugs and hope to all of us and the desire to support and help is almost tangible in her comments. She has a way of making you feel that you are important and valuable.
Sam is a hoot, a holler and a Hi-De-Ho! She is a poetess and piques our interest when posting about her encounters with men. She is delightfully honest and quite frankly, leaves us “wanting more.” She is always willing to offer kind words of hope and understanding and has been a staunch supporter.
Robert is an insightful blogger who shares my abhorrence of the treatment of homeless people and the almost complete misunderstanding of mental illness. He has experience with abuse from his mama and others. He also posts beautiful artwork that will leave you trying to recover your eyesight momentarily. He supports other bloggers by re-blogging their posts and gives open and honest opinions about things that matter.
Angelica posts about life with an adoptive mama and the toll it took on her life, not to mention the physical and mental abuse she suffered from another source. She has lived in Domestic Abuse Shelters and has struggled with alcohol but she is still able to see the beauty in things, such as the ocean. She is a free spirit searching for healing and shows extraordinary strength by refusing to give up.
