Veterans Day

While yesterday was actually Veterans Day, most of the world celebrated today with a day off. Not this girl. I still had to go pay the bills. No rest for the weary. Advertising agencies rarely recognize anything other than New Years, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Damn deadlines.

Veterans Day is traditionally reserved for the men and women who have bravely served in our armed forces. But our lovely Jenna has come up with an alternate twist for all of us battling the war of infertility. This award is for all of our brave women (and fellows too!) who share their story and bleed their emotions to inspire us and support us. Not only about infertility but any conflict in which they show sheer strength and perseverance. We have been dubbed "veterans of our circumstances".

So, without further ado, I pass this award onto the following recipients (in no particular order):

Kym, Tash, Courtney, Baby Steps to Baby Shoes, Melissa, Heather, Daisy, Wordgirl, Chicklet, Msfitzita, Niobe, Jenna, Mrs. B, Barb, Dianne, T, Rachel, Baby Blues, Shannon, JKH, A, Ilissa, Jamie, Chris, Jen, Carrie, Rian, R&R, <3a, Saras-P, Manda, B, Polka Dot, Samantha, Katie, Olivegirl, Christina, Mandy, Hilary, Melissa, Meg, Yodasmistress, Elephantscanremember, Rebecca, Abby, Sheri, Shelby, Farah, Alexa, Maya, Natalie, Ann, Sticky Bun, Artblog, M, Piccinigirl, Nica, Bumble, Grad3, J, Aurelia, SoCo, ES, Jamie, Jenny, Karen, Mony, and Jill.


I tried to pick those who weren't chosen elsewhere but I know I missed so many deserving people. Basically, if you are listed on my blogroll, you deserve this award. Pass it along to others who need a red (er, maroon) badge of courage.

And a big thank you to Jenna for this award. I am awed that you would think of me. You are certainly an example of a pillar of strength in our community.

Thanks for the support! If I did not have my online community to support me then I would be in the looney bin.

Your generous gift of time to my blathering is so appreciated.
