A Thank You Friendship Award to Mysti

I found this friendship award on Whitterer on Autism's site, as I looked for a proper thank you and very due award to my friend Mysti, who presented me with a loving and heartfelt friendship award this morning. I hope the Whitterer site won't mind that I found it to be the perfect thing to say to my wonderful friend.

I like this particular award because both Mysti and I have been through a lot (the 'wrinkles' - which are natural by the way), yet we remain the cute, sweet, even cuddly creatures that you see here.:)

Thank you, Mysti, for being such a loving person, a wonderful wife and mom to your family, just as you had always hoped to be, and then to be such a wonderful friend to me & others. Knowing that you have fibermyalgia and other issues, and that you keep on plugging away, and that you continue to be the fabulous woman that you are, gives me hope to be a better person and to know that it is even possible. Thank you for guiding me in the direction to be a better person which in the end, is the real sign of a true friend, and you did it without me hardly knowing.

I'm forever grateful that God guided us to our friendship. I don't have a lot of friends and that makes you even more valuable. Thank you, so much, for being wonderful, kind, understanding, honest, caring, and all the kind of characteristics I could have wished for in a friend. (In other words, you deserve me. Just kidding on the lack of humble, I just had to inject some Tart.:):):)

And the truth is, I love you, too.

Bipolar Speaks said...

Most of you know me as “Dreamwriter.” I recently
Launched a new blog called, “Bipolar Speaks.” One day something came over me as I was reading websites called “Post Secret” and also a blog who had a post where they had quotes from other Bloggers with mental illness about how they felt.

It occurred to me that WE need an escape to let out our feelings and frustrations. I know that a lot of bloggers say what they feel within their own blogs, but you are welcome to share your thoughts, opinions, and feelings.

You are welcome to help raise awareness and put a stop to the Stigma that lies within mental illness. We can change the world - one story at a time.

I thought it would be interesting
To design a “Safe Haven” for those who battle with a Mental Illness; and allow them to come and let out their most darkest, painful, and emotional feelings. This would be a great way to spread awareness by letting society know what is REAL about mental illness.

If you are interested, you can submit a story or short piece as an “Anonymous” contributor, or if you don‘t care about what others think, then feel free to reveal your blogger identity; its purely up to you.. I tried this several times and the “Anonymous” button works and ends up in my email as an “Anonymous” comment.

The rules and regulations are in the blog within a post. Take the time to read them thoroughly and I hope that you become a constant contributor.

Remember, we all have things on our chest to let out and we all truly don’t want others to know. But now is an opportunity for YOU to speak up, speak out, and be heard!

I know that I have a lot of feelings and issues that I don’t want my husband, friends, or family to know about…this is my chance to get it off my chest and I WILL be a constant contributor.

Depending on the issue, I might submit the story under both “anonymous” and my name.
Go to “Bipolar Speaks” and look around, don’t forget to display the Bipolar Speaks button on your blog and link it back to us.

By the way, I still have my other blog, so don’t forget about me over there, too. :)
