kreativ blogger award

I started Rhymes With Migraine only a few months ago, and I've been a bit lax in posting. That's the irony of living with and blogging about chronic illness - often the illness gets in the way of blogging. At least, it has for me, because I have a lot of trouble using the computer when my Migraines are bad.

I was therefore (pleasantly) surprised to learn that fellow blogger Leslie of Getting Closer to Myself awarded me with the Kreativ Blogger Award!

Leslie is one of my favorite bloggers, and has been very supportive in the short time I've known her. So Leslie, many thanks for giving me this award!

As part of the Kreativ Blogger Award, I'm to list six things that make me happy, and give this award to six other bloggers.

Six things that make me happy:
  1. My very supportive family, friends and boyfriend.
  2. My adorable kitty, Madcat.
  3. The kindness, compassion and understanding of the entire chronic illness community.
  4. Sharing my own story to connect with others.
  5. Knitting, crocheting or sewing.
  6. A nice warm cup of tea.
Six bloggers I want to give the Kreativ Blogger Award to (in alphabetical order):
  1. Diana, of Somebody Heal Me
  2. Ellen, of WEGO Health
  3. Janet, of The Migraine Girl
  4. Megan, of Free My Brain From Migraine Pain
  5. Suzie, of Sparkling With Crystals
  6. Teri, of MyMigraineConnection (and others)

Thanks again to Leslie for honoring me with this award. I encourage all of my readers to check out my choices, as well as the other wonderful blogs in my blog roll.

Be well,

I see you are participating in Rosalind Joffe's virtual book tour tomorrow. I am participating too, and I wrote a post about it today and linked to you for tomorrow so people will know where to look.
