    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!

    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!
