Ah yes - have been feeling teary and think I need a good cry but it's not forthcoming. Think this would be the ticket

ChaosTrulyReigns Sun 18-Nov-12 22:13:09

Sometimes it makes me happy to have a full-on cry.


OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 18-Nov-12 22:17:51

We'll see what we can do.

Okay, here goes - some of the posts have been edited slightly and names taken out. The below is just a tiny selection from all of the nominations we received.

<hands out tissues>

"She is a such beautiful person and speaks with such wisdom and gentleness, despite what she endures. My heart skips a tinybeat each time I see her name on here as I am in awe of her amazing soul."

"She is having chemo at the moment. Yet she continues to give support and remains serene and good humoured throughout. She really is an exceptional person and thoroughly deserves a treat this Christmas."

"She's funny, clever, caring and has excellent advice. She's unique. I think she's probably pretty well-off and doesn't need a present, but she puts so much time and thought into her posts that she deserves something. Oh, and she likes me smile"

"I just think it might cheer her up to know she's being thought of at Christmas."

"She's a single mum doing her best and having a bit of a rough time financially. She gives out loads of love, good advice and encouragement and I just think it would be nice to give a bit of it back to her."

"She's also a great friend, and has been a constant source of joy & support for me even in her toughest days."

"Even though she doesn't know me from Adam every thread I have started about how rubbish I feel or threads I have browsed to cheer myself up, she always makes me laugh. brightens my day a bit."

"She has adopted children all with SN and she is truly an inspiration."

"I would like her to get something for herself rather than for her family as she always goes without for the sake of her family."

"An incredible, non-stop source of non-judgemental advice, support and help for everyone on the special needs board. A force of nature and a relentless fighter, she is the heart and soul of the board."

"Wouldn't have 2 BF DDs if her advice wasn't around."

"She took the time to message me after my miscarriage to check that I was ok and that I had somebody with me."

"Her mum is v ill with cancer, and she hasn't whined. Is so lovely, and funny and deserves recognition for being ace."
