Life IS Good Award

Thank you to Carole (ReadingSully2) for nominating me for the Life Is Good Award. As part of this award, I answer the following questions that Carole has posed, create my own list of six questions and nominate six people for the award.

1. What is your favorite fantasy? My favorite fantasy is having a solo art show, which has just happened at the Roswell Tea House. In February my fantasy will be winning first place at the SE Flower Show with a flower photograph.

2. Have you ever experienced anything in the supernatural realm....deja vu, premonitions, ghosts, or feel you experienced some kind of miracle....religious, spiritual, healthwise, etc. Yes, there was a day when I especially was worried about my then 6 year old for mom reasons, and I prayed that the children would not go out for recess. I was really surprised when it started raining heavily around recess time, and they did not go outside.

3. If you were going to write a book, what would you write about? We have recently thought of a wonderful story about my youngest, who persuades a kidnapper to let him watch the end of a TV show, and ultimately stalls and foils the kidnapper. I would write this children's story.

4. Would you choose to live your life differently if you had the option of starting all over again? Or would you just stick with the life you have. I am so happy. I would do it all again even the bad because I learned a lot from all of that!

5. What is your number one item on your bucket list? I would like to get remarried.

6. If you could meet someone, dead or alive, who would it be and what would you ask them? I would love to ask Barbra Streisand to sing a song. Perhaps Just a little lovin' or Papa Can You Hear Me?

Lyrics from Just a Little Lovin' (Early in The Mornin') - Barbra Streisand
Just a little lovin'
Early in the morning
Beats a cup of coffee
For starting off the day
Just a little lovin'
When the world is young
And makes you wake up
Feeling good things
Are coming your way
This old world wouldn't be half as bad
And wouldn't be half as sad
If each and everybody in it had
Just a little lovin'
Early in the morning
A little extra something
To kinda see them through
Nothing turns the day on
Or really gets it dawning
Like a little bit of lovin'
From some lovin' someone like you
This old world couldn't be half as bad
And wouldn't be half as sad
If each and everybody in it had
Just a little lovin'
Early in the morning
Just a little lovin'
Early in the day
Just a little lovin'
Early in the morning...

To me a nice welcome to each day is an important part of living. I have a bunch of silly songs I sing to my kids to get them up and moving everyday (which isn't quite Barbra's meaning... but mine!) Like:  "Good morning to you! Good morning to you! You look like a monkey. You belong in a zoo! Good morning to you."

MY NOMINATIONS:  First of all I must nominate Jessica Rogers on Etsy for her amazing, motivating Photo of the Week blog post. My nominees from Atlanta are Chris Blor, MammaSays, Little Purple Cow Productions. I nominate BGGarden fromTwitter. And, a college classmate Karen at MyPointsInTime.

If you want to participate please answer the following and nominate six bloggers as well. Paste the pretty badge into your blog, and have a mag day! (Nominees and the rest of you, feel free to comment here with your answers or on your blog.)

1. What is your favorite song and why?
2. How did you get involved in your work/business?
