The Sunshine Blogger Award VII

Many thanks to Dawn, whose blog Drawing Closer to Christ is full of wisdom, for nominating me for The Sunshine Blogger Award.

Reading her blog, Dawn strikes me as being one of life’s achievers, a real tour de force. She’s a devout Christian, has served her country, graduated college, works as an accountant, published ebooks, raised an adult daughter – she so does not look old enough to have an adult daughter –  started her blog, and feels her best is yet to come!

Please visit Dawn’s blog, read what she has to say and give her a follow. You won’t regret it.

Dawn’s Questions:

1. How would you describe yourself in one sentence?

I’m a happy-go-lucky, positive bundle of energy.

2. What are you most grateful for this moment?


3. What is one of the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

4. If you could only watch one more movie for the rest of your life what would it be?

Tough one as I’m not a big watcher of movies though my favourite is The Shawshank Redemption.

5. What was your favorite childhood meal?

Scampi (Dublin Bay prawns) and chips (French fries) with tartare sauce

6. Sunset or Sunrise?

I love both and am always taking photos from my balcony.

7. What is a food you hate?

Boiled, poached or fried eggs though I love scrambled eggs and omelettes.

8. What is something someone would never guess about you?

I once ran the London Marathon.

9. Do you prefer to write a letter, text someone,call someone, or spend the day with them.

To be honest, it all depends on the “who.” I’m not much of a texter, write letters when it’s appropriate (sympathy, thanks and Xmas), regularly email and call friends many of whom I’d love to spend the day with but they live in another country.

10. What’s your Favorite season?

I love all the seasons, but summer’s probably my favourite. However, since we’ve been experiencing a mini heatwave, I may regret saying that.

11. What do you want to be most remembered for?

My smile.

  1. Sheree thanks so much for participating! I enjoyed reading your answers and I really appreciate your kind and encouraging words about me. 🤗 I enjoy your posts very much and the beautiful pictures that go along with them.

    I love that lesson you’ve learned in life. It’s always best to treat others like we want to be treated. 💕I love The Shawshank Redemption and have seen it many times. That’s so cool you ran in a marathon! 🏃‍♀️ The fries and scampi look so tasty. 🦞🍟

    I’m sure your smile is a blessing to those around you. We need more smiles in the world 😁. I’m thankful we connected up here. May God bless you abundantly! (Also, my name is Dawn, but Diana is a lovely name too lol 😂).

    • Dawn, I’m so sorry. I just hate it when someone gets my name wrong. You’re clearly much more charitable than me. I’ll correct it immediately!
