Sunshine!

What a nice surprise!

I’d never heard of the Sunshine Award until this blog received a nomination for it earlier this week from writer, editor, and history researcher Serendipity Chronicles. According to SC:

The Sunshine Award honors writers who are working to “light up the dark corners” of readers’ minds. It’s a true writer’s honor – a high five given from one scribe to another not just in appreciation of his or her written work, but in recognition of how challenging it can be to put that work out there for all to see – and to keep putting it out there even when the writing Muse is off on a vacation cruise.

Most importantly, it’s an affirmation of the world view that showing kindness is a sign of strength, not weakness.

Thank you to Serendipity Chronicles for nominating me – how very kind of you to give me this encouragement!

Perhaps the best prize is the opportunity to nominate other wordpress blogs for the Sunshine Award.  My nominees are:

Hope Avenue

and yadda yadda yadda… I made aliyah
