- Why did you start this blog?
I started this blog a few years ago in the midst of a deep depression. I had a lot of things going on in my life at that time, and I wasn’t sure exactly how to cope. Each day I found it harder and harder to get out of bed, shower, eat, live. So, I decided I needed to find something each day to be thankful for. Something, anything, that I found worthy of gratitude, and worthy of rising another day for. My blogs started out simple, “I am thankful for a cup of coffee.” or “I am thankful for good smelling soaps.” etc. Eventually, my blogs moved into long posts about what life really is to me, and why I’m worth love and life. So, here I am today, years later and out of the depression thankful that I kept this blog going.

- What are you going to do with your award?
I am going to answer your questions and post the award on my blog. However, I don’t have many blogs I follow, so I’m probably not going to create new questions and hand the award out. I don’t really know many anymore.
