Hi Jane: Your Sunshine just brighten up my evening of wet weather. Congratulations twice over. And thank you for thinking of me, for this I am grateful and accept the award. Bear in mind, it might take time before I can pass it forward. Blessings.
Thank you for accepting the award! It took me two weeks to do what was asked. So…time is of no importance…LOL. I realized after receiving the award myself what a boost it gave to me and my efforts as a writer! I think we really help each other when accepting the award and paying it forward! It is such a wonderful experience! Your courage is so wonderful to feel and read! I admired your strength to leave the Ashram after they refused food to the stranger. You are so incredibly strong!
Oh, the Ashram. Gee, Yes, that was the WAKE up moment for me. Thank you, Jane. Blessings. Perpetua.
Congratulation Jane!! It’s always a pleasure to read you
You have such a joyful, good heart! Thank you for your faithful following–it encourages me beyond belief! Thank you also for allowing me to publish your photograph with my writing this past November:

Your photography is amazing! I am waiting for you to begin your website and share your beautiful talent!
Congratulations, Jane 😀
Jane, you are welcome 🙂
[…] Thank you for the Sunshine Award. I am deeply honored. Thank you! (johannisthinking.com) […]
You are very welcome! Forward with the writing!
Thank you for nominating me, Jane. I appreciate your kind words.
You are most welcome and deserving, Judy!
Congrats 🙂 I love how you gave reasons for your nominees 🙂
thank you, Beth! I try to make the awards personal…and I find so much good in each person and think I should tell them…the world can be so empty and cruel at times! Thank you for visiting my blog!
The Sunshine award could not have gone to a better person. You have such a wonderful way of bringing Light to so many people -by bringing them the truth about who you are, and what you believe. Keep writing and shining your Light for all to see!
Thank you, Ms Betty! It is always nice to hear from you! Your words are kind to me. Likewise, you bring LIGHT to those around you — and I do hope you bring more of your poetry to the feast of words, so very soon! I love your stories and your poems that you have personally shared with me– they are too good to keep hidden in the confines of a little box on the computer. Thank you again!
