Hi Everyone!!

I will start this post with my sincerest apologies for being a bad blogger as of late.  I haven’t been meaning to blog, I just hit a wall a few weeks ago, and haven’t been able to peel myself off of it yet ;).  I hope you all can forgive me.

As some of you know, Graceful Agony has a Facebook group.  If you didn’t know, it is a wonderful community of caring people, who support, encourage, and relate to each other, as well as share relevant medical information, tips and tricks, and share laughter and tears with one another.  I am usually over ‘there’ even when I am not ‘here’.  If you’d like to find out more information in regards to the group, or you would like to join, click on my Facebook badge in the side-bar on the right hand side of this page, and send me a message!  I can then send you an invitation into our group!

I wanted to share something with all of you today!  The 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards is a juried competition held annually, showcasing the best of Canadian Blogs.  A few months ago when I found out I had been nominated for these awards, I was truly honored… and intimidated…. There were well over 450 other blogs nominated!  I didn’t think I would make it to the ‘short list’, but felt that it was really amazing to be included…..

Well, yesterday the FINALISTS were announced, and I am SO proud to tell you that Graceful Agony has been chosen as a top 5 FINALIST in the Health Category!!!

The winners will be announced in early January, but I honestly feel like a ‘winner’ already!!  What a trip to be included in a group of amazing writers!!  Not too bad for a relatively ‘new’ blogger!!

Thank you everyone, from the bottom of my heart.  Your support means everything to me, and I can assure, I count my blessings everyday, and you guys are always on my list!  I don’t know what I did before I became a member in this amazing and awe-inspiring community!!

Now THAT is a good way to kick off December… I guess Santa came early this year 😉

My wish when I started Graceful Agony was to spread the word, and increase awareness on Chronic Illness and Chronic Pain.  I wanted to be able to light another person’s path through a life that is often misunderstood.  I wanted to leave my footprint, make friendships, and be a part of an amazingly supportive online community…. and THAT is the biggest gift in what I do here.  I get all of those things and so much more every day.

Thank you to everyone that has given me such amazing support and encouragement through this process.  Graceful Agony wouldn’t be a part of the world-wide web if it wasn’t for you.

In spite of Pain.

XOXOXOXO
