  1. Thank you, Donna! I've received it already, so I'll just graciously accept it here.
    Congratulations to you. And I didn't know you had a twin.

    1. You are very welcome! Not surprising you've been nominated already! Yep, fraternal twin. We look nothing alike. She is olive skin, dark brown hair and eyes. I'm the polar opposite.

  2. Twins super fascinate me! And your daughters sound like lovely people.

    1. Hi Leandra, thanks for stopping by. Even though my sister and I are fraternal we do have those moments have knowing without being together as to what's going on. Thanks for the kudos on my daughters! Best, Donna

  3. Thanks so much, Donna! I was nominated by Beverly as well. I appreciate you both thinking of me!

    1. How lovely! Double congratulations! Best, Donna

  4. You have some very inspiring people in your life, Donna, and have chosen some very inspiring people. I'm so happy that we are friends.

    1. I enjoyed your list of inspiring people too! It's definitely heartwarming! Best, Donna

  5. Hi, Donna! CONGRATS on your award!
