The Sunshine Award

Tracy James Jones presented me with The Sunshine Award. I am very honored indeed. It seems that Tracy and I run in some of the same circles. I guess that's not surprising since we are both authors and bloggers. About a month ago, Tracy interviewed us. Then the next day, I interviewed Tracy

I’m supposed link back (see above), answer some questions about myself, and then tag more people.
1. What is your favorite Christmas/festive movie?
I have many Christmas favorite movies but among them White Christmas is a must see every year. What's not to love...there is Christmas = the spirit of giving, singing, dancing, and military all in one movie.
2. What is your favorite flower?
Carnations are my favorite flower. They come from the florist in so many different colors these days.
3. What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage?
My favorite non-alcoholic beverage is Dr. Pepper.
4. What is your passion?
I think my most overwhelming passion is helping others...that and eating sweets.
5. What is your favorite time of year?
Right now my favorite time of year is when school starts and I have more time to work. :)
6. What is your favorite time of day?
When the house is quiet...I prefer quiet to think, write, and read.
7. What is your favorite physical activity?
My favorite physical activity is singing.
8. What is your favorite vacation? 

My favorite vacation would be one where I didn't have to lift a finger for a whole week. I could spend time lounging and reading uninterrupted until meals and/or drinks were served to me. 

Now I’m supposed to nominate 10 other people for this award. 
I searched my blog lists for just the right posts that reflect Sunshine in some form.  If you do not have time to read the posts then please either skim or bookmark for later.

You know sometimes it isn't easy to find sunshine in this world of ours. I hope you found some with these posts. If so, I hope you spread a little sunshine in your next blog or maybe just smile at someone.  Simple things can be all the sunshine people need to make their day even better. Thanks,Tracy for sharing your sunshine with me and making me smile. :)

Have a great one!
