The Sunshine Blogger Award


A big THANK YOU to… & for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award.

The Sunshine Blogger Award is a peer recognition for bloggers who inspires positivity and joy.

Rules for the award :-

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so that others can find them.
  • Add the award logo to your blog.
  • List the rules.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers for the award and ask them 11 new questions.
  • Notify the nominees about it by commenting on one of their blog post.

Questions I was asked:-

What is the best thing about writing?When I write, my thoughts and my words become so clear…and I can’t wait to get it down on paper.

What is your favorite subject to write on?I love to write about my ‘lessons learned’ in life and joy, happiness, hope, and the beauty in nature.

Who is you favorite author/poet/writer ? I have so many…Robert Frost, Maya Angelo, song writers, screen writers, F. Scott Fitzgerald, A. A. Milne, Eric Carle, and so many other children’s books authors, John Grisham, George Lucas, J.K. Rowling and the list goes on 🙂

Which is your favorite book? Again, I have so many favorites but one that has always stood out for me is The City of God.

What do you look for in people? Characteristics such as genuineness, being kind and nice, honesty, and caring about others. Also people that have a sense of happiness and joy and love in their lives and, of course, people who love to be ‘the helpers’ in this world.

What is the best thing you like in nature? Bodies of water…babbling creeks, oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, waterfalls…

Which one do you like more: the mountains or the sea? Both

How did you deal with stress? Push through doing one task at a time while keeping in mind the whole picture and then debriefing when it is all done.

What is your favorite time of day…sunrise, morning, afternoon, sunset, evening? Sunrise…it brings the hope for a new day.

What is the importance of creativity in life? Without creativity life would be a little boring and the advancements we see in the world today may never have occurred without our wonderful, intelligent and creative minds.

How do you see yourself in 10 years? Living my best life possible with the considerations I have to live by.

Thank you both for recognizing me. My goal is to spread sunshine and joy everywhere I go, in all that I do, and through my stories. My philosophy on life is to make this world a better place by positively impacting lives and bringing happiness to other people, building and encourage others in their lives, and to have the courage to go after their dreams.

I very much enjoy your blogs. While your narratives are wonderful and I have learned so much, I love your photographs of so many beautiful places and things. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you to everyone who reads, ‘likes’, shares, comments, and follow me as I write. I appreciate all of you so much and feel grateful to have so many people interested in what I have to say 🙂

My questions for my nominees are:-

  1. What brings you joy?
  2. Where is your “happy place”…that place you go to that gives you peace and contentment?
  3. What is your favorite time of day? sunrise, mornings, afternoons, sunsets, evenings? and, what makes it your favorite?
  4. If you could change anything in the world, what would it be?

Now, as to my nominations:

  1. I have chosen to ask these questions. Feel free to create your own if you would like your nominees to answer others or if you would like to…
  2. When I nominated you, I thought about how much joy you have brought to my life simply by posting something and that is why your blog site is listed below. I follow a lot of blogs and I do so because each one of them gives me happiness, teaches me a lesson in some way, tells me all about another part of the world or helps me to become a better person in some way and so, in saying that, I would have nominated all those that I follow.
  3. So, to all of you who are listed here and even if you are not yet want to be a part of this enjoy doing or fulfilling the nomination if you would like to. Have a wonderful week and may joy be a huge part of it ❤

Have a wonderful day filled with sunshine, happiness, and kindness ❤

    • I find it interesting that usually people don’t realize the impact they have on others…especially when they are just being themselves. Your scripture posts also ‘fed’ me…in case you were wondering what you have done to deserve this award nomination 🙂

      • Well, we get to thinking that we’re ordinary. I certainly think I’m ordinary. The scripture posts are completely the Lord. I take no credit for them because I feel the Lord deal with me about those posts. As far as the poetry, I also give Him credit, and I should give much more credit because it’s a particular blessing. Most people pay more attention to them than the scripture posts. But hopefully they still get a Godly message from them.
