sunshine-blogger-awardIts an honor to be nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award.  This award is in recognition of blogs that share positivity in the blogging community. A big thank you to my nominator blog friends, Michael and Jacqueline.  Please check out their blogs for a little bit of sunshine:)  Michael’s Origins and A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales.

The Rules:

1) Thank the person/people who nominated you

2) Answer the eleven questions from your nominator(s), in this case In this case I’ve selected a mix between the two nominations.

3) Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions to answer.

My Answers:

1.Do you volunteer with any charity or non-profit?

Currently, I am on the board as the treasurer for our local youth football program.  I am a Brownie Girl-Scout Co-Leader.  I volunteer at my children’s school and my daughters dance studio:)

2.  Any best friends?

Many, I love each of them for what only they can bring to the friendship.  Each of them are the best for that 🙂

3.  What is your biggest fear? 

Even though I know this life is temporary and I know we all meet on the other side, my biggest fear is losing someone I love before their time, or at least what we perceive as early.

4.  Where is that one place in the World you wish you lived in?

Exactly where I am. I used to think this was the last place I would live when I was growing up, but now I appreciate it.   Even if I had the means to live anywhere I would maintain my home base here, but I would get a second residence in Hawaii, probably Maui.

5. Who has most influenced your life?

My dad.  He’s gone now, and it was only after he passed away that I really began to reflect on the impact and influence he had in my life.  I suppose that is how it is with many of those closest to us.  We only realize certain things after they are gone.  It is a form of them still being with us even though they are physically gone.

6. Who is your favorite author? 

Martha Beck.  I love her witty intelligence and advice.

7. What is the one career you would love to enter?

Television Production – see question number 10 for the long answer.

8. What is your favorite temperature?

75 with no wind is just right for me.

9. Introvert or Extrovert?

I never could quite put my finger on that one until testing revealed that I am exactly 50/50.  Totally makes sense now!

10. What about yourself would you change if you could? 

I would have a naturally beautiful clear complexion all the time, no need for beauty treatments.

11. Why do you blog?

Interesting you should ask.  I blogged about that very question.  You can read about it here in Truth be Told: Why I Blog.

I have selected the nominees below for various reasons but mainly because they have brought me such joy by reading and supporting my blog.  This is my way of saying thank you for your support.

As a time saver, I would like to present the same 11 questions posed to me to my nominees.  And the nominees are…

Here comes the Sun:

A Funny Thing Happened When I was Learning Myself

Belief Patrol

  1. I enjoyed reading your responses. I was a Brownie Girls scout too 😊 My late dad influenced my life a great deal and the thought of losing my loved ones gives me sleepless nights. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

  2. Congratulations Brandi, thank you for including me in the nomination, I am really honored. I am not able to get around with the nominations given to me so for the meantime I will just answer the 11 questions here. 1. I am not into any volunteer work or non-profit right now. 2. My husband, my mom and my lady friend for the last 17 yrs. 3. Same as you I fear of losing a loved one. 4. I would love to stay where my love one is anywhere in the world. 5. My mom, she never fails to amaze me with her kindness and big heart. 6. I can say Chaim Potok, the one who wrote The Chosen (aside from the author of the bible of course). 7. I would love to teach 8. I read somewhere body temperature (just copying this from a fellow blogger lol :P) but seriously it will be just 30 degrees celcius..I don’t think much about it but just the right temperature not too cold and not too hot. 9. They usually say I am extrovert but I can say it is 60 extrovert/40 introvert lol :).10. If I could, I would love to not have polio.11. I blog to meet people and perhaps to inspire and encourage others…as they say sharing is caring. Thanks a lot again Brandi! Love to know more about you. Hugs!!!
