This summer I started getting these really sweet, interested, supportive comments on my blog from Jen in MI over at a2eatwrite. Since that moment she hasn't failed to comment on one single post so far. Check it out, scroll down...she is everywhere boosting me up.
And that's not all, last week she awarded me this "Nice Matters Award" "for her ever-present cheer and warmth and genuine interest in cross-cultural issues and facts. I can't visit Goofball's blog without smiling, as well as learning something new". Holy cow, how sweet can you be? And I am so happy that she did notice that I am interested in cross-cultural exchanges as I think those are so enriching to our lives!

Look what I found out now: some of my "northern" neighbours thinks I am nice as well! Not only Jenn has bestowed me with this button, apparently Fourier Analyst was sharing the same idea : "And my lovely "southern" neighbour at Goofballsworld as she is always leaving such funny, encouraging comments and I am dying to meet her in person someday!" Well, FA I am really glad that you find my comments encouraging and funny. To be honest, sometimes it is hard to leave comments for some posts, sometimes you don't know how they'll come across, if they'll be meaningfull or meaningless, sometimes you are looking for that right witty remark, etc... So I am glad that you appreciate them.
Wooooh all those kind words, I think I am blushing right now and have the feeling I can fly!
So on my turn, I'd like to share this award with my crazy Australian Hong Kongees host sister Creative Flair Chic whose blog I just recently discovered. Apart from her family blog, she dedicates her blog "All things great and beautiful" to all things beautiful in life: decorations, fashion, flowers and lots lots of colors. I so reflects her happy, warm, shiny outgoing nature. Hey "Zot Ding"...you so deserve this award!
I also want to award Allie at Life at the Whittinghams. Although living at great distance from me, she's a fantastic friend always ready to share laughter but also worries and pain. She genuinly cares!
I don't know if it is quite according to the rules but I'd like to return this award to Jenn in MI herself. The time she puts in reading all my posts in detail and giving me such supportive feedback while doing the same thing at other blogs and while keeping this wonderful writing at hers a2eatwrite, is amazing. She shares so much love with everybody that it gets contagious.
