“Thank You” for another lovely blog award!

Thanks to Esenga’s Voice for this lovely nomination!

When I started my blogging journey a few months ago, it was with some hesitation and lots of apprehension. Now, I am happy that I pressed on. The biggest of thanks to Esenga for such a beautiful and thoughtful award – The Liebster Award. Your words & poetry are magic and always inspires me.

I learned that “The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The Meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.” Wow I feel special! Thank you ūüôā

And now for the rules: (1) Thank the person who nominated you (2) Answer 11 questions (3) Nominate 11 Bloggers for the award and inform them. Here goes!

  1. The Book that changed your life: The Bible most definitely! If I had another choice it would be a book named: “That was then, this is now”. I read it when I was 13 and never forgot it.
  2. Your favourite author/writer: This is a tough one. I have many for different genres, moods & seasons!
  3. Your pet and its name: More like a borrowed pet – belongs to my neighbour – but she always comes by: a dog called Anna
  4. The craziest thing you have done: tried running down an ascending escalator *still find it fun*
  5. Your best friend: they would not want their names here!
  6. A childhood prank: trying to get my pet turtle to give me a ride on its back
  7. Favourite musician: Whitney all the way
  8. A Place you would love to visit: Everywhere I haven’t been! Top of the list though – Africa, Asia & Middle East.
  9. If you had 5 minutes left to live, what is the one thing you would do?: Sorry, still pondering that one…God’s willing it will not be a reality anytime soon!
  10. Favourite Sport: Cricket
  11. Definition of love: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son…”

Whew! So now for the nominees! Drumroll!!! And the Nominees of the Liebster Blog Award are…
