Graduation Give-Away and Sunshine Award

I was so excited to see the package in my mailbox. My good blog-friend, Delvalina Tuanger, had a “Graduation Give-Away” on her blogsite, and I won! 

I was so happy to be a part of Delvalina’s celebration. She graduated, I got a gift. But that’s just like her.

I don’t remember how we got connected through our blogs, but I’m so happy we were. Delvalina is from Solo, Jawa Tengah, Indonesia. So my purse came all the way from Indonesia, not an short trip!

Please visit her at: Falling In Love With Jesus. She is a very faithful blog-friend, and I know she would appreciate meeting you!

Thank you Delvalina, for taking the time and considerable effort and expense to send me such a beautiful gift. I love it! She also sent me such a sweet note. It's like getting to know her in a whole new way. We all read each other's words, but it sure is special to get a handwritten note!

A heartfelt thanks goes to Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose for her help in forwarding the package. 

I would also like to thank Marcia at Menopausal Mother. She named me one of her recipients of the Sunshine Award.

Her posts always give me something to smile about. Her blog is an honest, funny and irreverent view of life for a woman of ‘a certain age.’ Although our blog content couldn't be more different, we have become good blog-friends. She introduced me to Nutella, so I have a lot to thank her for! I hope you will go on over and visit her too.

As part of the award, I am supposed to share seven things about myself. So…here goes:

     1)    I have only had Nutella once. But wow, mention that product, and you are going to get a reaction!

     2)    I have two grandchildren, with one on the way. They are all girls.

     3)    I have big feet. I wear a size 9 ½ to 10 shoe. I don’t mind though. I was a competitive swimmer from my youth through college, so I was always told they were good ‘flippers.’

     4)    I do not like coconut.

     5)    Purple is my favorite color.

     6)    I can’t sleep on planes.

     7)    I am one of eight children. Four girls and four boys.

You all have been a ray of sunshine to me. If you would like to accept the Sunshine Award, just grab the image. Write a post about it, and be sure to list seven things about yourself, and attach the button.  That’s it!
