September Perfect Post and Happy 100 to Me!

This marks my 100th post! A perfect occasion to award my very first Perfect Post award.

My perfect post nomination for September is Sunshine Scribe's The Call That Changed My Life. In this post, Sandra describes a pivotal moment in her life: being diagnosed with cancer at age twenty. Thankfully, the diagnosis turned out to be wrong, but Sandra’s reaction to it speaks volumes about her strength and courage. Here’s a small excerpt:

So I did the only thing that I knew how. I took out my note book and started writing. I wrote through my fears and confusion. I wrote through my emerging anger and disbelief. I wrote through my need to protect the people around me. And I started planning. Not for dying but for living.

If you haven’t read this moving, inspiring story yet, you can find it here.

You can read more Perfect Posts at Suburban Turmoil and Petroville.
