Sunshine Blogger Award


A HUGE thank-you to Derrick at for nominating me for my second Sunshine Blogger Award. I am thrilled! I am especially happy that Derrick nominated me because I was thinking just the other day that he really did deserve this award. He is a young man, but I find that we share many of the same views on topics that he posts in his blog. He is wise beyond his years. In any case, blogging can connect people who share common interests. A great way to grow as a person and learn from others.

So, “What is this Sunshine Blogger Award?” you might ask. Read on and find out…
