I nominate Karen Quiñones-Axalan

Posted December 29, 2020 from South Africa

I remember my first world pulse post, and the excitement when I got the notification that someone had commented on my post. It was Karen, the first respondent. The one who shows up, she shows up 1st almost all the time. The watchman, who makes sure that the light shines in the right directions at all times, a  sunflower at her core (kikikiki) . The one who points out to the arrows in one's quiver just incase you have not seen them yet. She never seizes to amaze me, how she does not run out of words to say and courage to give. Love to share and bridges to build. Validation and understanding to give. She gives, She is always giving. I experience her as selfless and empowering. Christ fearing and inspiring. She is a conqueror, a reflection of warrior woman in all that she has and is journeying through. Her spirit is a vibration that is impossible to not feel. Even with her roof literally falling in, her spirit is a vibration that is impossible to not feel.

Give this sister an award!!!

Dear Beatrice,

Wow, just wow, your words brought me comfort. It's very humbling, too. "She does not run out of words", but now I am at a loss of what to say, dear. Hahaha. Sunflower, yes, dear! If only there was a sunflower emoji here. I would be sending those to you as what we do via WhatsApp!Hahaha.

So great to know, dear Beatrice! I appreciate your kind words. I am actually not eligible to join. I wish I could nominate you, too. I hope you keep using your gift to write and inspire. You write so well, my sister. Keep uplifting and encouraging because those are your gifts, too! Sending you and your children hugs and love!

May your 2021 filled with love, joy, peace, grace, and abundance!

Hello Prozoe,
You say you struggle to write, but look at what you come up with! Apt, deep, refreshing, affirming, beautifying, strengthening words that flow from the heart. Thank you for seeing and honoring dear Kaye. Her spirit is truly a vibration! (how'd you come up with a phrase like that hee hee :) )

Lol Nini. I am super feelings filled. I think my writing comes from a place of emotion. And I imagine that Kaye is a shaking, an action felt even in silence, one that can still inspire movement. I cannot decode to you how things work in my mind, but I can tell you that when something or someone moves me, ink never seems to lose feeling. #ExcitinglySmilling
