Sunshine Award Nomination!

I am delighted to say that I have been nominated for The Sunshine Award by Laura Susanne Yochelson who blogs so honestly and courageously about eating disorder recovery.  Thank you Laura!

Here are the rules of this blog award if you are nominated: Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog (see flower photo above)
. Answer 10 questions about yourself.  (As far as I can tell, you can use the questions below, or switch out a few and include things like favorite motto or favorite number, or something like that.)  
Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers. 
Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated. 
Share the love and link the person who nominated you!

So here are 10 things about me:

  1. What are your favorite things to do?  Being with my husband and children, writing and reading. 
  2. Where would you most like to travel to?  Australia.
  3. Who would you most like to meet who is still living? Michelle Obama.
  4. Who would you most like to meet who has passed away?  My paternal grandparents, maternal grandfather and, most of all, my dad’s favorite brother, Stan.
  5. What do you think is the hardest thing to do?  Let your kids make mistakes, stand back and let them learn from them.  (Also, one of the most important things as a parent.)
  6. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink? Coffee.  Lots of coffee, made in my own special way.
  7. What is your favorite charity?  Heifer International.
  8. What are you proud of? Being a mother to my two terrific kids, a wife to one amazing husband, finishing a novel.  Helping my former psychotherapy clients get closer to their goals.
  9. What ambition do you still have?  Getting published, revamping my therapy practice.
  10. What is your favorite flower?  Sunflowers, though my husband thinks they’re creepy-looking, I think they’re beautiful.  Also blue and white windflowers that grow in Sweden and are “awluffy wild” (as described in Astrid Lindgren’s Noisy Village books.)
These are the amazing blogs/bloggers I am nominating:

    Congratulations on receiving wide recognition for your writing, Lisa. Your sensitivity, humanity, and intelligence shine. Your novel should make a mark.

  5. Honored, flattered, and grateful… Thank you, Lisa!
    And congratulations on your own nomination!

  6. Congratulations, Lisa! How funny that your husband thinks sunflowers are creepy. I wonder if Van Gogh did a number on his free association.
    We’re driving down to board the ship at the pier in So. Cal this evening, where a late-season storm is preparing to greet us (much to my husband’s delight). We certainly could use some sunshine! Thanks!

  7. I am honored, Lisa. Thank you. I so respect the power of your words on this blog and am humbled that you nominated me.

  8. You are full of beautiful sunshine, and thank you so much for thinking of me.

    Sunflowers are not only a beautiful flower, IMO, they produce a seed that people and critters like to eat. What could be better than that?

  9. Thanks so much Lisa! I like reading and learning about you here since I’m a follower! 😀
