My Questions From Bwalya B Sampa
#1. If you could be someone else for a day who would it be and why?

This is such a hard question! I really can’t imagine being anyone but me and I’m learning more and more about myself all the time which I think is wonderful.

#2. What’s your favorite movie?

Ever since I was a little girl my favorite movie has always been ‘Drop Dead Fred’.

#3. Who is your biggest inspiration and Why?

My aunt Ann Harden. I will never be able to express the impact she had and has on my life. We lost her in October of 2017 to Cancer. But she was a survivor in so many ways. That’s why she’s my inspiration.

#4. What’s your fondest childhood memory?

Christmas at my aunt Anns house. Every Christmas eve was at her house. My uncle would dress like Santa and give out gifts…with both of them gone Christmas will never be the same.

#5. What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?

Leaving my ex husband. Walking out of a marriage no matter how horrible it may have been, and leaving 3 step children behind that I knew I would never see again… Yeah that was scary at 26.

#6. What do you fear the most?

My health failing. We are on an amazing up turn of events. I feel better than I have in months. But my illness is a day by day sometime hour by hour event. But in our home we don’t let fear rule us.

#7. If you won a holiday destination, where would you go and why?

Probably one of the Sandal Resorts. We’ve looked into those for honey moon options. Oh yeah I’m getting married in the next two years!

#8. Why did you choose to start a blog?

Fibromyalgia had taken over everything I had I felt like. I needed somthing. An outlet. My stitching wasn’t helping me cope anymore. If stabbing something 1000’s of times doesn’t get your frustration out you better find another outlet and quick.

#9. What’s your favorite genre of music?

Geez hate to sound awful but I just don’t have one. I love just about anything. Right now I’m jaming to love songs from all genre’s and decades making playlist for our reception.

#10. Do you believe in the celebration of Valentine’s? WHy/why not?

Yaaaas! I sho nuff do! Oh my yes ma’am. I love-love. So yes bring on the celebration of love.

#11. what’s your favorite thing to do when not writing?

Haha. Stitching.

Ok next step are my nominee’s for the award. I put a lot of thought into these and highly encourage yall to go and check these amazing blogs out, along with Bwalya B Sampa of course!

1. Anuj !. The Chlamydia list. This blog keeps me laughing every time I read it! A must read.
2. Nikki, Brainless Blogger. This is a fellow female fighting the fibromyalgia fight.
3.The Bipolar Writer, James Edgar Skye. The blog title tugged at me, but the writing style and stories hooked me.
4.UndeniablySara, Learning to live with chronic illness by self healing. This is such an encouraging blog I find a lot of strength here. 5.FracturedFaithBlog. This was one of my first blogs I followed And still one of my favorites. There’s always something new And delightful to read in this spot.                           
6.MyLittleBligOfPositivity. Um  omg the title!? And you get just that, always a sweet pick me up. #Yas                                                                      7.BellasBabbles, babbles: verb 1. Talk rapidly And continuously in a foolish excited or incomprehensible way. Another fellow warrior in many ways. So easy to relate to the stories I read here And my own life. 

Iv e only been blogging since January so unfortunately I could not fill the required 11 nominees. Seven is a good number though.

And my questions for yall are….

#1. All time favorite food?
#2. Tell me about where you grew up OR a childhood memory?
#3. If you could open a business, what would it be?
#4. Do you have any pets?
#5. What’s your favorite season and why is that?
#6. Do you prefer a large group of friends or a small gathering?
#7. What’s your favorite drink? (Tea, Coffee, Beer, Wine)
#8. Current Pandora Station?
#9. What’s the last meal you ate, and who was it with?
#10. If you could ask one question of anyone, who would it be and why?
#11. Do you believe the young man who committed the mass school shooting in Florida should get the death penalty? — I know this may seem like this is a morbid question for the sunshine award BUT I strongly believe for there to be creativity, optimism and sunshine we must face dark things at times, and in my opinion that means we have to talk about it. Those 17 victims and every child, parent, grandparent, teacher, everyone in that community, and in every community that is scared, deserves to have a discussion started about the problem we are facing in our schools and in our mental health community. — 👌 I’m off my soap box now.

Please have so much fun with this! I know I did.

-Always Stitching.
