Very Inspiring Blogger & Sunshine Award :)

 Hello Everyone,

I have received four new awards recently and will be “accepting” two of them in this post.  The other two will follow; thank you for your patience and time, in advance~

The Very Inspiring Blogger and Sunshine Award were given to me by my dear friend and blogging sister, Caddo Veil,  It would be hard for me to believe that you all haven’t visited her, yet, but, if, for some unknown reason, you haven’t, please do!  Her blog is a jar full of smiles, inspiration, spiritual guidance, hope and love.  You will not be disappointed!  Thank you, Caddo, for these two wonderful nominations.  I am very honored and grateful that you thought of me!   Just the thought of my blog inspiring and creating smiles for my readers is enough for joyful tears!



As you know, there are “rules” for accepting these awards.  First of all, I am supposed to answer 10 questions about myself that might interest you; that’s a tough one, but I’ll give it a try! 🙂

Fave Colors:  Blue, purple, red (it’s hard to choose just one)

Fave Animal:  Dog, no doubt, but I’d love to own a dolphin, tiger, lion, koala bear and anything else cuddly!

Fave Number:  I really don’t have one, but I always say “5” for my family of 4 + the family dog (we’ll be adopting soon) (keeping our Lucky Girl in our hearts) ♥

Fave Drink:  water, non-fat vanilla lattes, peach iced tea

Prefer Facebook or Twitter:  Facebook for my poetry page and I’m not on my personal page as often, but do have it.  I don’t think I’ll ever tweet!  There aren’t enough hours in a day~

My Passion:  Family, Writing, Reading, Helping others, trying to be the best person with God’s guidance

Prefer “giving”, or “receiving” presents:  I get so much pleasure from giving, but it is fun to receive, too!

Fave Pattern:  plaid (love plaid shirts)

Fave Day of the Week:  Fridays, looking forward to the weekend with my family, but thankful for each day~

Fave Flower:  Alstroemeria – they come in pinks, oranges, yellows and reds and are just beautiful, not to mention, they last forever, which is always a benefit! I also love carnations!

Nominations for both awards: (if there’s a number limit, I’m modifying :))


Nominees are in alphabetical order and some of these bloggers I’ve known for awhile.  They have spread their sunshine and inspiration throughout the blogging universe and have touched me with their poetry, thoughts, photography, advice~A few of the others are still new to me. However, in the short time I’ve perused their sites, I’ve been moved by their compassion and love through their experiences, poetry and photography, as well.  I encourage you all to take time to stop by their blogs, if you haven’t already made their acquaintance.  Again, you won’t be disappointed, but, you will be inspired!

I give thanks to those I’ve nominated for bringing inspiration and cheerfulness to my blogging experience and again, thank you, Caddo, for these two very special nominations!  Hugs and Peace to you all!
