A couple of weeks ago, Misha Gericke over at The Five Year Project (formerly, My First Book) notified me that I received a Pay It Forward Award, about which I’ve patiently waited for a formal announcement so I could share it on my own blog. The announcement was made today, so now I finally get to show off the wonderful Hawaiian Care Package that was donated by Mark Koopmans.
There were nineteen fantastic people who received recognition, and ALL of the prizes were First Class, however, the last thing I needed was another book, what with the 30,000+ books already collecting dust in my Kindle that I’ve yet to read. But when I scanned the list of prizes and came across Mark’s donation of a Hawaiian care package, I jumped on it.
If there were one thing I needed at this point in my life, it would be a CARE PACKAGE. Especially one that included two of my favorite things: chocolate and macadamia nuts.
So thank you Misha and Mark. This really brightened up a gloomy month, both literal and emotional. Bless you both!
