Sunshine and More

A huge thank you to

for awarding me with
not one but two blog awards.

I can't thank her enough.
Please check out her blog, it's wonderful.


As with many blog awards,
they come with rules.
For the Sunshine Award,
I am asked to answer the following questions so
here goes:

Favortie Color:  Warm colors
Favorite Animal:  Cats (hands down)
Favortie Number:  2
Favorite Drink:  Water, plain and simple
Facebook or Twitter?  Facebook
My passion:  The rights of special needs people.
Giving or Getting Gifts?  Giving!
Favorite Day?  Friday
Favorite Flowers:  Lilacs

I am also required to pass these along to other
bloggers.  To me, this is the BEST part
of receiving an award.
Sadly, for me, this seems to
have become a real issue here in blogland.
Many don't pass them on
and others won't accept them.

Having said that, I am going to pass them on.
I think it's a really fun way to get to meet
new bloggers I may not know about
and I do love to give the love.

If you don't want it, I don't expect you to accept it.
If I didn't mention you by name,
go ahead and take it anyway.
I hope you ALL know how much I LOVE
you all but I like to play by the rules
and I really don't want to see these lovely awards become
a thing of the past.

So here goes:
