Hope Award

Here's what you need to do ! Put that picture up that one up there on your blog and blog about one thing you're happy about right now and one thing that you're hoping for in the future. You are acknowledging something that's making you smile right now and also putting out there that you have hope for thing one amazing thing to happen in the future, for you to bring you even more happiness! Oh and then you have to pass this award onto anyone who you believe would benefit from looking at their surroundings, their life now and finding happiness in it !

Thank you so much to Erika at Pollination Chronicles for this award!!!  Thank you, sweetie!

SOMETHING MAKING ME SMILE RIGHT NOW:  Right at this VERY moment?  LOL.  Finding Nemo.  And the gentle summer rain making the house a bearable temperature while nurturing our parched land.  And in general, my friends and non-biological family who have become so important to me, who have provided support and asked for nothing in return during this tumultuous time.  It's been amazing to not only find solace in friends who have been and are where I am now, but also finding those little coincidences about our lives outside of IF that make those friendships that much better.  And knowing that my words can comfort someone else in return, thereby making my life feel that much more meaningful. 

SOMETHING I AM HOPING FOR IN THE FUTURE: Other than the obvious?  You all know that!  I hope that one day, Hubby and I are living in a place we love, with the ability to travel and show our children the amazing things of this world, and make other people see it somehow.  To do good.  To make a difference, and to wake up in the morning knowing that I am doing something that I feel proud of, that makes this existence worth the stay.  Because cubicle land is not that place.  LOL.  But I believe there has to be a way to make all of this happen.  Somehow...

And here are my nominees.
  1. Rebecca at The Road Less Traveled
  2. Hillary at Making Me Mom
  3. Amber at Life in the Last Frontier
  4. Sara Jean at Journeys Over The Rainbow
  5. Claire at Lose To Gain
These are the ones I could think of off the top of my head.  And a special shout out to Nicole, who has her beta tomorrow, and Baby Bump Bound who has her beta Saturday, same as me.  There's at least one more this week, but sadly, I cannot remember who it is, and it's only because I follow so many of you.  I'm sorry.  So, if it's you, comment, and I'll add you to the list!
