Sunshine Blogger Award

Sunshine Blogger Award

Heather at Midsummer Dreamer  nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I’m humbled and grateful for the nomination. Heather writes to help people who are struggling with mental illness by sharing stories, articles, and her experiences with anxiety and depression. I hope you check out her blog.

Sunshine Blogger Award Rules:

Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Answer the 11 questions asked.
Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
List the rules and include the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.

Heather’s Questions for Her Nominees:
What fictional place would you most like to go? The Shire (from Lord of the Rings).
What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue? Woodworking and building furniture.
What job would you be terrible at? CEO of a large company. I wouldn’t want to work as hard, and sacrifice other things as these executives do, to be successful.
Are you usually early or late? I strive to be on time, or maybe 5 minutes early. Once we were invited to a couple’s house for dinner, arrived about 20 minutes early, and our hosts weren’t dressed yet. Since then I try not to be too early, but never late.
When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with? I get asked to pray for others in times of trouble, to organize little events, help with crafts, and computer problems. (I sometimes fall short in the technical department)
What are some small things that make your day better? Sunshine, nature, a smile from a stranger, good news from my children.
What’s the farthest you’ve ever been from home? I live on the prairies in Canada. I have been to British Columbia on the west coast, to North Dakota in the U.S. (I really haven’t been too far from home).
What is something that a ton of people are obsessed with, but you just don’t get the point of? The fascination people have with celebrities, like the Kardashians.
What would you rate 10/10? The Bible. There is so much to discover and rediscover within its pages. (also ice cream and pizza)
What fad or trend do you hope comes back? People going out to dance. My husband and I took ballroom dancing lessons, and don’t have many opportunities to use what we learned.
Where is the most relaxing place you’ve ever been? I was once treated to a hot stone massage. It was a wonderfully relaxing experience.

I would like to offer this award to any blogger who would like to participate, and answer the same questions that I answered above. I know this bends the rules a little, but many blogs have stated they are award free, so I don’t want anyone to feel pressured to take part.

Three Day Quote Challenge – Day #3

Three Day Quote Challenge – Day #3

Thank you to   Cyranny’s Cove  for the invitation to participate in the 3 day quote challenge. Do make a point of seeing what her blog is all about.

This is my third, and final, post for this challenge. Above is the quote I’ve chosen for today. This verse from the Old Testament reminds me that God is able to use my life situation, even orchestrate circumstances to enable me to accomplish His will. To be used for a higher purpose, to believe that I might have opportunity to make a difference in the life of another, instills in me the desire to “live a life well lived”, though I know I often fall short. I can’t predict if or when God will place me where I need to be “for such a moment as this”, but I hope I don’t miss the opportunity if it arises.

Rules of the Challenge:

Thank the person who nominated you.
Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
Share why this quote appeals so much to you.un
Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

Here are my three nominees for today:

Bad Dad Cartoons 101

The Hazel Eyed

Humoring the Godess

Please participate if you would like to share some favourite quotes with your fellow bloggers. Thanks for reading.

Three Day Quote Challenge – Day #2

Three Day Quote Challenge – Day #2

Thank you  Cyranny’s Cove  for inviting me to participate in the 3 day quote challenge. Please take the time to check out her blog.

I don’t usually post daily, but this challenge sounded like it might be fun.

Above is the quote I’ve chosen for today. I like my household to be organized. I think that similar objects should be stored together. I like to be able to find things when I need them. I like things to be put back where they belong. I don’t like clutter. I think filing cabinets, storage units, drawers, and book shelves are some of the best inventions ever. I feel strongly enough about all these statements that I could have ended each with an exclamation mark, but I didn’t want to appear too crazy.

I don’t have OCD, I just find that life is much easier to navigate if things are tidy. In a world so troubled, I find that being able to order my own environment gives me some semblance of calm, and peace.

Rules of the Challenge:

Thank the person who nominated you.
Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

Here are my three nominees for today:

Amazing Tangled Grace

Hello World

Wilt’s Cartoon Triage

No pressure. Participate if it sounds like fun.

Three Day Quote Challenge – Day #1

Three Day Quote Challenge – Day #1

Thank you  Cyranny’s Cove, for inviting me to participate in the 3 day quote challenge. Please visit the Cove for interesting stories, poems, and insights. I don’t usually post daily, but I’ll make an exception so I can take part in this challenge.

Above is the quote I’ve chosen for today. When kindness is shown to another, the act of kindness itself is not the only gift given. The recipient also receives a sense of self worth, that another would consider them of enough value to be shown kindness. They may even pay it forward to another in need. Kindness need not involve material sacrifice. Time, a smile, a compassionate listening ear, can all be expressions of kindness. When shown without expecting anything in return, it makes the world a little better place in which to live.
