Pleasant Surprises

Blog, Blogger, Blogging Awards...they all come as pleasant surprises and  make my blogging life more colorful. I would like to express my special thanks which come right from my heart  to my bloggers' friends from across the globe who have been very kind in nominating me with some awards. Never did I dream of getting any of  these but life is indeed full of surprises when  they were cordially presented to me.

This is the recent award which I received from Od Liam, the owner of Tales, Stories, and poetry blog.  Thank you so much, Od,  for this fabulous award. You make me feel fabulous, too!

I would like to pass on this award to these wonderful ladies. No tags, no rules, just grab it and be fabulous!

1.  Dana of Purely Enchanted

2.  Sui Generis Writer of Imaginative Spiral

3.  Zarnab of In My Lonely World

4.  Christine L. Andre of   Through Each Given Day

5.  Elen Lackner of Poemas de amor

The following awards were received some time early this year and at the end of last year.  Don't think that I had forgotten them. They are safely kept in my heart. Please accept my apology for the delay in posting them.

Thank you Fahima, owner of  Walking In The Woods and Hotei of  Anymore Then A Whisper for this Versatile Blogger award.

Thank you for giving me the inspiration, BillyJoMary Drei of 3 Heads in the clouds.

Thank you once again to the owner of  my favourite Elf, Od Liam of  Tales, stories, and poetry for this recognition.

Thank you for this meaningful award, Aunt Mary of  Easy Way (A Blog For Children) and Epsita of Happiness.

The awards come along with tags but I'm sorry to say I'm breaking the rules. Pardon me cos I'm unable to answer each and every tagged question.  Perhaps as a substitute, please feel free to check out my older posts if you would like to know a little bit more about me. There you'll get some answers for your questions.

Here they are :

1.  Awards And Tags

2.  The Inspirational Blog Award

3.  A Surprise From Mexico

Have fun, keep smiling and keep the blogging world spinning!

    1. Thank you, Rumpunch., for your warm words. I apologize to friends for being unable to answer the tagged questions. I respect everyone and in no way to let them down. As I do have some awards before this and have answers for tags, I thought it'd be ok to refresh them. That's the reason for providing the links. I hope my friends understand me. Actually, I'm so deeply touched by their kindness in nominating me the awards.
