I’ve Got Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

Greetings All!  Once again, I have been nominated for The Sunshine Blogger Award, by gifted50 at Pene’ Pasta for the Soul! for Loving her spunk and her food. Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all of you, your support, and your recognition.  It is truly an honor.  None of this would be possible without all of you, my loyal followers.  The Sunshine Blogger is about recognizing the community of fellow bloggers for their creativity, positivity, and inspiration.  So let the sunshine in.

Sunshine Blogger Award Rules:

  1. Thank the Blogger who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them.
  2. List the rules and display an award logo on your blog post.
  3. Answer the 11 Questions the blogger asked you.
  4. Nominate up to 11 new blogs to receive the award and notify them by commenting on any of their posts.
  5. Ask the Nominees 11 new questions.

11 Questions for My Nominees:

  1.  What time of day you consider your most creative?

I am creative whenever my muse comes to visit me, whenever, wherever that may be.

2.  Who/what encouraged your love for writing?

I have always loved writing, but my favorite teacher was Mrs. Helgeson,in my advanced AP English classes in high school, always encouraged us to write.  We wrote everyday.  She was such an amazing lady and such a big influence, not only on me, but many others as well.

3.  Have you ever regretted posting something on your blog, and if so why?

No regrets.  I say what I think and I speak my mind.  If others don’t like it, that’s their problem, not mine.  More people need to learn to speak up while we still can.  If not, we may lose that right and privilege.

4.  What is the best advise you have received and from whom?

Never be afraid of who you are.  Again, Mrs. Helgeson, along with my parents.

5.  Name your most defining quality.

???????  I guess that I am always ME, no matter what, good or bad.

6.  What is your favorite meal and why?

Dinner.  It is at the end of the day, and I can unwind with a glass or two of wine over a good meal and just relax.

7.  What advise would you give yourself 20 years from now?

Never give up.  Never give in.  Keep on moving on.

8.  Who/what is the most influential force in your life?

My parents.  They always taught me to believe in myself, to fight for what is right, to protect those who can’t protect themselves, honesty is ALWAYS the best policy and to ALWAYS live by the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have done unto you”.

9.  If you could travel the universe, where would you go?

I would go everywhere.  I want to see it all.

20.  What do you think of our world today?

It’s one big giant mess.  We seem lost with NO direction.  We are spiraling deeper and deeper into a black hole.  It’s very scary.

11.  Have you ever had a divine encounter, if so tell us a little more about it.

I have had many, but the one that really stands out is as soon as my mother passed away, within seconds, there was a lullaby being played on the speakers of the hospital, and the nurses told me a new baby had just been born.  I have no way of ever knowing, but I had this intuition that it was a little girl, who had just been named Theresa, which was my mother’s middle name.  I felt my mother had just come back and her spirit lives on.

 

I am adopting something I have learned from other bloggers whom I admire, and rather than naming 11 other people for this awesome award, I choose to only nominate a few bloggers.  There are so many fabulous people and blogs out there and it is very difficult for me to choose.  We all fill our own nieches out there, and we are all so different.  Everyone is a super star in their own way.

The questions that were asked of me are great questions, and I will ask the same questions of you.

11 Questions for My Nominees:

  1. What time of day you consider your most creative?
  2. Who/what encouraged your love for writing?
  3. Have you ever regretted posting something on your blog, and if so why?
  4. What is the best advise you have received and from whom?
  5. Name your most defining quality.
  6. What is your favorite meal and why?
  7. What advise would you give yourself 20 years from now?
  8. Who/what is the most influential force in your life?
  9. If you could travel the universe, where would you go?
  10. What do you think of our world today?
  11. Have you ever had a divine encounter, if so tell us a little more about it.

Best of luck and Congratulations to all.  You are all super stars in my book.
