Sunshine Award!


Last month, Edain from English, Pagan and In Canada! blessed me with a Sunshine Award! Edain and her blog are always bright, sunny and entertaining so it's a real honour to receive it from her.

I'm a big believer in the power of positive thinking, optimism and looking on the bright side of things. Of course there's a lot of crap in life -- I know that perfectly well. Sooner or later we all have to walk a dark path into the forbidding abyss. But then, like Persephone returning from the underworld with Spring in tow, we will rise and walk in the sunshine once more.

And walking in the sunshine is what this award celebrates! So now I'm passing this award on to 10 bloggers whose positivity and creativity are inspiring! Some of these bloggers seem to be naturally chock full of sunshine while others work darn hard at it -- but they all make the blogosphere a sunnier, happier place!

(And as always, blogger buddies, don't feel obligated to accept or pass this award on unless you want to!)

Congratulations on your well-deserved reward. LOVE the labyrinths, btw... Have a replica of one on my bedroom wall - bought from Tintagel, Cornwall - not far from the Museum of Witchcraft! ;o)

Y-O-U have put a big smile on my floppy eared chops! Thank you so much and I will continue to T-R-Y to put a smile on all faces (or at least 'a turn up on the lip section' of your visage).
Cheers

Thank you Debra! Pisi & Squeak and I are very happy to accept this award -- we just have to figure out how to do that! Pisi is sitting on my lap as I write this, and she's purring away and saying, "You'll figure it out, won't you mom? You always do."

Thanks again! Have a great one!

Lynette Killam said...

And thank you so much for passing the kindness along to me. I'm slow to get back on track after my holiday, but will
happily grab the award to post on my page. I will also check out some of your other links...much appreciated!
