Here are the rules for the Sunshine Blogger Award: (If you choose to participate)

Thank the person who nominated you

I am doubly honoured Ayoka as I enjoy your blogs very much.  When I consider how I felt writing my first blog, I am astounded by your responses as I continue reading them, enjoying them so much, a true highlight of my day!

These awards are so touching and delightful as I read and learn some intimate details that make me feel closer to all of you.

Answer their questions

Nominate fellow bloggers who you follow

Give them ten questions to answer

Questions For Nominees: 

What languages do you speak?

I only speak English alas I’ve forgotten my French, Spanish and Sign Language.  Something I really should rectify.

When did you last cry in front of another person?

Crying is very rare for me, not something I do often.  The last time I cried was watching my granddaughter dance because she is exquisite.

Are you less religious than your parents?

My parents passed many years ago, and my form of religion is different. I believe in God, but not organized religion.

What is the the one thing you have tried but will never do again?

Unfortunately I have to say the list is long.  Due to an accident I’ve lost a great deal of my vision so I am unable to knit, crochet, and most heart wrenching of all, paint draw or photography all of which I was incredibly good at and which delighted me immensely.

Do you believe everyone needs a soulmate?

Actually, I do.  I believe that often too many “settle” but I have witnessed friends finding their “soulmate” and it is such a delight.

Would you say no to palm oil products to save the orangutans?

I am uneducated in this area, but I don’t believe in harming animals for any reason.

Have you ever succeeded when you thought you might fail?

On many occasions, too numerous to recount, the answer is an unqualified yes!

Who makes your dinner?

We work together to make dinner, so the “who” changes daily but it is a combined effort for the most part as we enjoy our meals as a family.
Do you consider yourself an extrovert or an introvert

I have been both.  Although shy at first, I am extroverted once I feel comfortable.

Have you ever witnessed a panic attack?

I have only witnessed my own.

I nominate the following, although I have so many I wish to choose.

        I hope I don’t disappoint you too much, but I am one of those odd ducks who really isn’t into awards. The aspect of blogging most rewarding to me is people like you who connect one on one and take the time to make thoughtful comments. That’s the ultimate for me.

      • Awe thank you so much! That means worlds, and why I enjoy blogging to the moon and back. The award is touching and thoughtful and very dear, because they let us know others care and or enjoy what we do. To that extent, please don’t consider disappointing me or anyone else! What you write is coming from within, and significant to you and enjoyable to the rest.
