Sunshine Blogger Award

My fellow Guardian Angel Publishing author, Penelope Ann Cole, has passed on to me the Sunshine Blogger Award.

Thank you, Penny, for this honor.


I will tell you about some of my favorite things so you can get to know me better:
Favorite Color – Rainbow
Favorite Animal –at the moment, Elephants, because I’m working on a story about an elephant
Favorite Number – 10, that’s how many grandchildren and great-grandchildren I have, combined
Favorite Drink – Gatorade (purple) mixed with cran-grape juice
Facebook or Twitter – don’t care much for either
Your Passions –Writing/Wild Flowers/Ecology
Giving or getting presents – Giving and getting
Favorite Day –Saturday. This is a holdover from when I was teaching–sleep in!
Favorite Flowers – Milkweed/Passion vine/Roses/Princess flower

I am now extending this honor of the Sunshine Award to 3 more Bloggers.

This prize is given to “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” 


The 3 blogs I have awarded are listed below. A huge hug and thank you to each of  these bloggers for inspiring me with their knowledge, humor, and creativity:

Maggie Lyons:

Maggie’s blog is sunshine manifest; a smorgasbord of literary ideas.


Tina Cho:

Tina’s Tidbits is a glimpse into an active mind. If you need inspiration, go here.


Laura Sassi:

Laura’s blog is a place that celebrates writing, reading, and life. It’s a joy simply to look at her home page.

Thank you, Maggie, Tina, and Laura for bringing SUNSHINE into the lives of children with your books.

    Thank you for the honor of the Sunshine Award, Barbara. I’ve passed the award along to Beverly McClure’s The Story of a Writer blogspot. I’ve very much enjoyed exploring the blog sites that have been given this award. My blog site is very new, as am I to blogging, so I’ve a lot to live up to and the Sunshine Award is a big inspiration.

    Maggie, I’m so glad this award is going to be an inspiration to you (not that you need it). Beverly McClure is also a very deserving blogger; I’m glad you chose her.
