Lemons to Lemonade Award

About a month or so ago I was given my first award from Evelyn at Favored Grace. I am totally thrilled to get this award. I am new to blogging and when I started I was wondering how everyone got these cute little awards. I feel like I have been on a roller coaster of emotions for the last year but I really try hard to be up beat and positive. Yes I know some days that totally isn't me..but I do try. So to me this award represents that some days I am struggling, but other days I can make the best of it and go with the flow and forget all of my worries.

The rules for Lemons to Lemonade award:

  1. Put the logo on your blog or in a post.

  2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude/gratitude.

  3. Link to your nominee within your post.

  4. Let the nominees know they are nominated by commenting on their blog.
There are a lot of amazing blogs out there. The blogs I have listed focus on families who have dealt with or are dealing with surgery and numerous hospital visits. I am always in awe of how strong and positive people are when faced with surgery or time in the NICU/PICU. These families show great attitude in difficult, stressful times. Of course this is is near and dear to my heart because...we have spent a lot of time there too.

Here are 10 Blogs that I Nominate:

Our Unexpected Journey
Livin for the Love
The Kang Family
Life As We Know It -
The Life and Times of a Woman on a Mission
The Phamily Blog
Days with Dylan

I am giving the award to the The Stevenson Family , for being so positive and up beat while spending 99 days in the hospital with their beautiful little boy Beau. Not once did I hear them complain. They cherished everyday with their son and took lots of pictures while on their journey.

Thanks!! It has sure been a roller coaster ride but now that we look back on it we really have learned some much from this experience. It sure has been nice to reach out to families who are going through the same thing as we are. Others are just as deserving as we are. We are just a normal family with an extra special son!!
