I have seen all sorts of awards circulating through WordPress. I thought why don’t I come up with one to. So I have.
Random Acts Of Kindness Award, RAKA
This award is given to anyone you think shows kindness to another blogger or writer or to the community here on WordPress.
If you know someone who has shown you or anyone else an act of kindness please nominate them for this award.
I believe that any act of kindness no matter how small can significantly impact another’s life. So I feel it is great to acknowledge those who practice kindness.
The rules are simple.
1- Tell who you nominate and why.
2= Copy and share the picture that shows the award, posted above.
3- Share a paragraph of something that impacted your own life in the way of receiving kindness or how you extended kindness to someone else.
For instance, ” I once was waiting in a drive thru line for 20 minutes. I was in a hurry but the line did not move much, it felt like. My day was getting worse by the moment. When I got up to the drive thru window, the cashier said someone had paid for my meal already. That really made my day a lot better.”

Why am I passionate about my blogging?
I am really a newbie in this blog thing and I am learning more and more each time I read someone else’s stuff or the WordPress blog posts. I enjoy writing, I always have. What started out as a simple diary from my childhood , later became my heart in words on paper. When a person deals with emotional upsets, they express their dealings or experiences in different ways. My way of expression is poetry and just writing. I came on WordPress to promote my books, but found so much more here. I hope that one day, I may help someone or give enjoyment to someone, and possibly a little hope too.

Questions for me to answer from Photosociology
How straight is straight?
It depends on who is observing.

Feelings. Put my feelings down in words.
Why are swans graceful?
They don’t know they are beautiful.
Would you be a superhero or a sidekick, and what would your name be?
I’d be a sidekick, my name would be “Humble”, why because I think being ‘Humble” is what we all should be.
If you could remove one letter from the English alphabet, what would it be, and what consequences do you see coming from it?
Hmm… I guess it would be “e” because it usually hangs in the end of a word and it is unnecessary there.
What was the last thing you lost and never found? What do you imagine has happened to it?

Old and rich, because I would give that money to those in need.

You would find a weight, a heart, a music note and possibly a light.
