Respond to Ten Questions about Yourself–Share the INFO about your Sun Rays:

1.      Favorite color:   turquoise blue–it stimulates the soft and gentle part of my inner being.

7.     My passion(s): Seeking truth…being love to myself and others…writing…oil painting

    Congratulations , Jane on being honored with the Sunshine award. No one deserves it more than you. You bring so much light and love into others lives, not only in the WordPress family but with your own family and your friends on Facebook and others you meet in your everyday travels. Thank you for nominating me…and b-4 you got my e-mail.
    Oh, well I am nothing but honest and very, very fallible, try as I may to be perfect, I fail everyday. It’ a wonder I don’t give up. May we both continue to bring rays of sunshine into the world we live in.

I came upon this quote, “If you do not have a purpose, CREATE one!” so my new purpose is to be a writer…and to be supportive to other writers– just as they have been supportive of me. I am so blessed…it is true!

        OMG!!! Sorry Jane, the reply was for you.
        . My face is felling really hot an red. 🙂 I guess I was suffering from new camera lag. I was exhausted from trying to learn all the things that camera has and what it will do if you do this or that. Concerning the photo, I’ll send you an email. 😉
