Recently I was nominated by a fellow Blogger for the One Lovely Blog Award, I would like to thank Amy – Brotmanblog: A Family Journey for acknowledging and thinking of my blog, it took me by surprise especially as I don’t post as often as I would like. The smallest amount of kindness goes a long way and I have spoken to Amy here on WordPress many times and she has bundles of kindness, so a very BIG thank you.
