The Wegohealth Activist Awards And picking Up Your Brooms ~

OK, I'll admit that it WAS pretty nifty to receive the following nominations for the WegoHealth Health Activists Awards.

Award: Advocate for Another (http://info.wegohealth.com/advocate-2011)

Reason: Kelly is as passionate as she is knowledgeable about diabetes. It has touched her and her loved ones in ways that would bring most people down. Yet, she's turned her experience into an opportunity for advocacy and raising awareness about the disease and life with it.

Award: Hilarious Health Activist 2011 (http://info.wegohealth.com/humor-2011)

Reason: Kelly can find the light in any situation, and she's definitely had some tough ones over the past couple of years. She's not afraid to tell it like it is and laugh about it at the same time. She's even done a diabetes-related standup comedy routine! Kelly is guaranteed to give you a good chuckle and an affirmation of happiness in life.

The nominations were made by other Health Activists (i.e. YOU) and whether I get an award or not,
your words made me smile and your words continue to encourage and make me work harder, so it's all good.
So thank you for making me continue to work hard while smiling with my whole face and heart.

But with that being said, I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE for the Diabetes On-Line Community to make these awards a "clean sweep" and a team sport ! ! !
Be sure to click on each of the highlighted words/!! above!

So get out your brooms (think Hockey Playoffs and Curling,) and make your WEGO Health Award nominations for whom (who?)ever you choose by going to:


And yes, I realize it's sort of weird for me to be using sports analogies, but I am part Canadian and my mom was in The Ice Capades, so ice sports are in my blood, if not in my actual ankles!
And I kid you not, my parents wedding reception was held at the McIntyre Curling Club/Arena ~

They sweep in Curling - But I still don't really understand why, except that sweeping is part of the actual game game, while the Zamboni is not.
