nominates Nini Mappo for the World Pulse Spirit Award!!!
Posted December 15, 2020 from United States

Nini is many times my alter ego when it comes to writing my posts.

She pops in, interjects, accepts, qualifies, confirms, challenges, laughs at, borrows ,enhances and always encourages what I have to say.

Just like and even better than a sister at home .

We inspire one another to write. We even add on, complete and continue each others work.  

I visit her website, where we push boundaries, explore, and never hold back. 

Then we take it to World Pulse and deliver our gems with each other's pride and/or mischief attached.

We challenge one another. And we pull out the best from each other.

We weave our words, laugh, make fun of each other. And we make a serious life and death issue into a concise matter of fact.

Nini is a true inspiration. She is that spark that gets me going and makes me start and complete an expression.

She makes me address issues that I had no idea I was even interested in, much less passionate about.

Nini has made my teeth grind, my heart rush, my stomach churn and my coffee cup refill to get a post done in response to her post.

Nini is a spark. Which is a spirit in disguise and incognito.

She makes me go places with words I would have never gone.

And she makes it okay that I went there, even if I question myself if I should have.

Nini always shows up when you most need her to, and when you least expect. 

She has a life no doubt, but she dedicates herself to her sisterhood. 

If this sounds like love, then yes, it is. A true sisterly love. A bond and respect in sisterhood.

And for that I am very grateful. 

I nominate Nini Mappo for the World Pulse Spirit Award, because it's the closest I can get to putting a crown on her pretty head.

Dear big big sister in Chief JoMarie :)
I was struggling to wake up for the 5th time (wasn't a good night for the baby) when I read your post, which infused me with such excited sparkles that my brain lit up and got on with the day!

Thank you for seeing me, and for helping me see myself. It is refreshing to look at myself through your eyes, I smiled and laughed and gleamed at how aptly you describe our writing synergy.
Thank you for the nomination, but more than that, thank you for being my sister, my friend, and my sparkly writing buddy . I appreciate you :)
