Last Saturday, Carol from Northwestladybug gave me a lemonade award which recognizes bloggers who "show a positive attitude and/or gratitude in their posting." She considers me a "blogger who I believe turn lemons into lemonade on a regular basis".

I felt so honored that she had thought of me and that she considered my blog showing some positive attitude. I really touched me.

The irony is that the last couple of days I am struggling hard to feel any bit of positive attitude at all. Remember that I was home in January after some minor surgery to remove a cyst at my tailbone that seemed to be prone to a recurring under-skin infection? That it had not been the first time that a doctor needed to do some cutting there? That I really thought in January to be biting through the sour apple to get rid of that type of problem for good.

Can you feel my distress and panic when I started to have the o so familiar pain again right there? When I started wobbling through the house again like a duck with a big ass? When sitting down become something to be avoided again? Gosh when I realised I was truly dealing with the same thing for the 3rd time in 1,5 year, I could only panic. I didn't sleep on Sunday night and when the doctor confirmed the verdict on Monday morning I could only cry. I can't believe I have to go through this pain and healing process again for the 3rd time....2 months before my wedding in the middle of all plans. I'm afraid. I struggle to find anything to make these lemons taste a bit sweeter.

After a couple of days I'm calmer now, but I can tell you I really do fear whatever decision the doctor will have to make this afternoon. I know this isn't the worst health problem at all, but it's sure pretty annoying and painful. Yikes.

So despite the award, my lemonade is a bit sour this week. But fortunatly there's many more bloggers that show off their great positive attitude which makes a visit to their blogs so rewarding and refreshing:

Of course, all awards have rules:

1) Put the logo on your blog or post.
2) Nominate some blogs that show great attitude or gratitude, (i.e. turn lemons into lemonade) 3) Link to your nominees within your post.
4) Let the nominees know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5) Share the love and link to the person from who you received your award.

Oy, again?
I had to have my cyst drained, then I went back 3 months later and had it removed and that has been pretty much the end of it. Sometimes the area or the scar tissue gets sore but it has never grown back.
I know how painful it is and I'm sooo sorry you have to go through it again.
