The Sunshine Award

Hello everyone :-) I wanted to pass out a little bloggy love today, since it has been passed along to me by Elizabeth at Eof737’s Mirth and Motivation and I want to thank her so much. She passed the lovely Sunshine Award along to me and I’m so honored because I love her blog…it’s like a breath of fresh air to me :) So please drop by and visit her wonderful blog.

This award honors and supports bloggers and its goal is to spread goodwill and to pay it forward to twelve other bloggers. I’m excited to pass this blog award back to Elizabeth and also to the following twelve blogs:

From Ohio With Love
Mama ASID's Entrepod
Necessary Room
Krystal Grant's Guide To Life
Writing to Survive
Operation You
Maitri's Heart
Health Nut Wannabee Mom
Blogging Baby Boomer
Coco Thoughts

All of these ladies inspire me in their own special ways, so it’s my honor to pass the Sunshine Award along to them :-)

Here are a few instructions for paying this award forward:
#1 Nominate 12 bloggers
#2 Put the award logo/photo onto your sidebar or within a post
#3 Link the nominees within your post
#4 Let the nominees know that they’ve received this award by commenting on their blog
#5 Share the love and, if feasible, link the sidebar logo to the person from whom you’ve received this award

Congratulations ladies! And if anyone else wants to share the Sunshine Award, please feel free to take it with you and pay it forward! :-) Have a joyful day!

Thank you so much for this award. I am deeply honored and put it in my sidebar with a link back to you. You made my day!

Blessings and a big hug!


P.S. I know I haven't done this quite right but I never put anything in the main body of my posts but my posts so there was no room to put other blogs but there's a link back to your blog. I love your blog and wanted to celebrate it!

You know, I don't have a photo of our yellow house. Guess I'll have to take one one day :) We live in a small terraced house which is light yellow. Terraced houses are quite common here. A house like ours is one in a row of houses. And ours is the yellow one :)I hope that gives you a bit of an idea. Thanks for visiting me.

Dori, the sunshine awards in Brazil is being a sucess absolutely! See how nice one of the comments I received today:

"You know how very special and blessed, right? I think the title of "fairy" was not born for no reason! You have the gift even illuminate the hearts and spread all the noble feelings at once! I take this opportunity, since it is not late for that ... lol ... thank you for the wonderful energy that you spread here on Newsvine with Sunshine. I think in some ways, I was a little careless with you. I am preparing for the official apology. You must wait!
Big kiss, fairy, beautiful poet and Sissy! Jackie"

P.S.: The success of this awards is being propagated in the Brazilian news site called Dihitt

So... this was so cute, so nice, it is to everybody: FRIENDS AROUND THIS WORLD!
