THIS AWARD HAS BEEN CREATED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE EFFORTS AND MULTIPLE CONTRIBUTIONS THAT A LAD FROM SCOTLAND HAS SHOWN SINCE HE STARTED BLOGGING IN THE WORDPRESS PLATFORM.

HIS NAME IS SHAUN GIBSON. 

You can find this information @ http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/about-2/

~~IN HIS OWN WORDS~~

“Life is this easy, we make it hard x … My name is Shaun. I have a partner and 4 kids. I live in West Midlothian in Scotland, I am in my late 30′s.

I look at the world and challenge everything we are told. Some live in a ground-hog day existence, I couldn’t live like this.  I am a thinker, I love to get my mind round a subject and try and share it with you, the reader, the best I can. The blog could be about myself, or the world around us, or any other subject, I need to share.

I am disabled with Chronic Pain Syndrome, it gets in the way of my life, but not my mind, or my heart. It won’t kill me, but it is a nuisance to say the least. I live for my family, I also challenge myself every day to push myself to be a better person, to think of others, to help others, and more important, smile and be blessed for all I have.

I am not religious, but I respect anyone’s right to think and believe what they may. Freedom of expression and thoughts is important, as is the ability to accept that other people have feelings and opinions. We must allow others opinions to speak to us, otherwise we turn to hate and intolerance.

Love the people in your life, be happy, stay strong and always fight to better yourself. Some hide away and shy from the world, and live alone and die alone. We all are guilty, as if we reach out, others reach back. I reach out with every blog I do, and people do reach back.

I am humbled by the humanity in this blog.  Thank you for following my blog …. “

What can I say about Shaun?

He’s real and genuine and wears his heart on his sleeve.

He’s straightforward and sincere. Don’t believe that he sugar-coats issues.

He does thorough research, prepares educational topics and presents them in a very professional manner.

He loves music and sports.

He’s a motivator and creator. He teaches, inspires and unites.

He has a chronic pain syndrome condition that he deals with every day and still has the time to show his effort in blogging even during times when his fingers can barely type. He’s tried several medications and some have worked, others not.

He has a lovely family that he’s very proud of.

He has a dog.

He challenges himself every day.

Pushes his body and mind through pain to be a better person, to think of others, to help others.

In spite of his physical limitations, he smiles … I can feel his smile through his words. He has a positive attitude that is infectious.

He feels blessed for all he has.

He’s a great friend to have … he will have your back and he will stand up for you.

His sense of humor is direct, unparalleled and funny.

Has been known to wear a kilt.

He’s a GREAT BLOGGER!!
