The Power to Inspire

I know I'm breaking my own blogging rules. I do not post here on Tuesdays or Thursdays anymore but I thought this would be a very good time to break it.

All of you (my blog buddies) have a special place in my heart but this girl takes the cake. I love her like a fat kid loves cake (but deeper).

Candyland.

She rocks my world (seriously).

Why do I love her?And why should you (don't worry... I'll tell you).

- Her random blog posts. (Feel me up Fridays is an absolute classic).
- Her deep love comments. (Always makes me smile. Our love runs deep).
- Her heart. She is the most giving person. (Joy2World. New Medicine. Me. she's like an angel - a sparkly one -).
- Her strength. Even when she's feeling weak and vulnerable she's there to help others feel better. Her courage and comfort is disgusting (in only good ways).

So today I'm sharing my love for Candyland. She's a fighter and I love her for it. She's a nut case and I adore her for it. She's New Medicine's number one fan and I can't hate her for it.

If you don't love Candyland you should start. I'll allow you to leave my blog (for a short period of time) to go say hello. It'll be worth it. I've always said her blog is like a drug and I stand by my statement. It's addiciting.

PS I also posted at Jules today. I have a new look. Check it out.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I love me some Candyland too! She has the biggest heart! I leave her blog laughing, or inspired. Her last few posts have made me want to get on a plane and fly to her, make her a cup of tea and give her a big hug.

We LOVE you Candyland! You will get through this!

The thing I love the most about Candace is her courage to always tell the truth. Painful, hilarious, awkward, crazy, random, humiliating, whatevs, Candy brings it, no holds barred.

I love me some Candy. I want to be just like her when I grow up (but a dude).
