Feel good vibes: The Liebster Award

When it strikes you twice, it’s time to accept. 🙂 Back in November (2014 – so last year! 😉 ) theoldfellowgoesrunning nominated me for the Liebster. I had really, really wanted to accept the award but I felt I did not have the time to answer all the questions, pass on the goodness, etc… I have often thought about responding to Carl’s nomination all these months since, but it looks like I have a second chance and this time I am ready. By the way, theoldfellowgoesrunning is a wonderful blog.  Carl’s posts are always thoughtful and thought-provoking. Thank for the original nomination Carl!

The current nomination comes from spanishmossseries!! A BIG THANK YOU to Janet. This blog goddess is a writer and foodie ;-). And by the way, I really enjoy these awards, not because my blog is any big deal, but because it feels like a ray of sunshine when you are nominated by a fellow blogger. It just spreads cheer (and blog love) and we could all use MORE cheer (and Love) in our lives.

    Eliminating greed is such a great answer. So many of the world’s problems stem from that.
