GinaV of http://professionsforpeace.wordpress.com/ recently honored my blog with the Sunshine Award, and included the following:
“Hello Russ, your heart-warming blog has become a favorite place for me to visit for uplifting and thought-provoking material. You are an everyday hero to me! I have included you in my list for The Sunshine Award, but as you may know… I’m all about ‘do what you love’ so join in the fun if you want to and of course whenever the time is right. Blessings, Gina http://professionsforpeace.com/2012/05/26/the-sunshine-award/
“Answer these 10 questions, below, for fun if you want to and nominate blogs you enjoy.”
I really enjoy reading Gina’s blog and am honored and humbled by her kindness. I’m glad that she finds value in what I write. So, per her request, here are some of the blogs I most enjoy:
The Nominees (I recommend that you check them out. My list of nominees is short because I’m fairly new to blogging and I learned about some of my favorite blogs from Gina who had already nominated them for this award. Those with an asterisk have already been nominated by Gina for the award, but I wanted readers and followers of my blog to have the opprtunity to see these blogs too):
