Just when I was beginning to think that perhaps Blogging is not worth doing but a reckless time waster, here I am again.  
I have been given another award, albeit I am a tad late in terms of extending my gratitude, I reckon it is never, ever too late to say two of the most gracious words in the English dictionary:  THANK YOU. My sincerest gratitude to Marie of The Colour of Our Skin for having included my Blog amongst those she has found inspiring.

The Award is aptly designed as a butterfly; symbolizing change, transformation, metamorphosis.  When given to you, you must NOT return it to me, it is intended to fly away and touch another Blogger.
I will be listing my own selection of BUTTERFLY Inspirational Blog Awards.
There are a couple of TAG questions that you may or may not decide to use, but it would totally delightful if you will.


  1. What makes you laugh, smile or giggle? My kids laughing and playing.
  2. What are your dreams for your future? Travel around Europe and Africa
  3. If you are to go to a cruise, where would it be and why? I've done a couple of cruises, so I will pass on this one.  I used to work for a Cruise Liner.
  4. How would you spend your vacation time and with whom? I would love to go to Greece with my daughter.
  5. If given a chance, what life would you choose? Your life now or your past? I will always choose my life now.  I believe that today is called a "present" because it is.
  6. Is there something that you wished before when you were young but you didn’t get it? I wanted to be a surgeon.  I thought then, that it would take a lifetime of studying.  But guess what, I am a lifetime student of human behaviour and life.
  7. Have you been in a situation where you might have given up but still you chose to move on? Yes, pretty much the story of my life.  But since this would require a series of chapters, I will leave my answer to a YES.
  8. Is their someone in your life who has been your source of strength and inspiration? My father.  He is my first love.
And now to my List of Inspirational Blog Awards.  I am proud to be able to become part of their Followers:

  1. Andrea: Life is a Science Experiment
  2. Amber: Chronicles of Amber
  3. Dirty Cow Girl: Left Alone with A Full Moon
  4. Jamie: It's a Gay Life
  5. Lily: The Incoherent Ramblings of A Single Parent
  6. Violet: Gratuitous Violet's Blob
In so many different ways, these Bloggers' hearts, words, wit and own uniqueness have touched me.  They have given my Blog Life in the internet-verse a totally different meaning.  
And for my Inspirational Blog List: You have all shared and bared your souls in your respective Blogs and you have become one of my habits I refuse to give up on. I hope you can chance upon this Post and know how much your Blogs are appreciated.
I am also sharing a song that I find of great inspiration for people faced with the challenge of change and moving on.  
Here's Ross Copperman's HOLDING ON, LETTING GO:

  2. Congratulations! Well Deserve. I know there are always times when we feel like stopping our blogs and thinking who is interesting anyway, but if you remember your words and ideas can change even one person's day, maybe it is worth continuing.

  10. PB, you've actually made me shed a tear. Like you, I was very close to giving up blogging but this has just made it seem more worthwhile.
    I thank-you from the bottom of my heart because it means so much coming from you! :0)

    And why did I not know about this blog???? I was worried because you hadn't posted for a while on the other one that I follow. Nevermind following this one now! God , I feel like a stalker.
