For some time I have been toying with ideas of how else to say thanks to those who visit or follow my blog. I want to do it in a unique way. I like gifting. I like making gifts. I like surprising people in a nice way. Perhaps I could combine all that somehow. So here’s what I have come up with. I call it Soul Gifting.
What is it ?
Once a month I am going to choose someone and contact them to let them know they are being offered a Soul Gift. If they choose to accept, all I need is a mailing address sent to me by private email. What the gift is will be a surprise.
It is starting now – 15th March 2017.
How will it work ?
‘Giftees’ names, a link to their blog (if they have one) and my reason for the nomination will appear on the list below unless you instruct me otherwise.
One last thing – because I made the rules, I can change them if I feel like it. That is bound to happen sometimes.

The first Soul Gifting goes to Elaine’s Bloggers Paradise
Tom Merriman from Beyond the Sphere is September’s Soul Giftee. Artist, photographer, poet, philosopher, Superhero story teller, letter writer – Tom’s blog is a veritable treasure trove. On his site he has also created a number of candles for ‘spreading the light’ in this world of ours. Should you wish to join him in this, simply go over and grab a candle or two and start spreading Tom Candles.

Soul Gifting goes to Janet A who has subscribed to my blog almost from its very beginning by email. Thank you so much for your friendship, support and presence in my life.
Bernadette from Haddon Musings delights me with her passionate and generous support for “showcasing the talents of the post 9 to 5 generation” through her hosting of the Senior Salon. In it you will find art, music, writing, poetry, photography, creative cooking and fashion to name just a few. Through her Feminist Friday posts she celebrates the contribution women make to a vast array of endeavours. I am honoured to have Bernadette as a member of my blogging community. Please pay her a visit.

December 2017 Soul Gifting goes to Opher Goodwin, of Opher’s World
Opher is passionate about many things. A prolific writer of sci fi, rock music and other things, he calls himself an antitheist. Ever prepared to discuss and debate, he also likes a good laugh or two. Of those, he has given me plenty with his witty comments. In his own words –
I believe in equality, tolerance, justice and freedom. I respect other people’s points of view and do not expect people to share the same beliefs as me. ..and would like to live in a world where there is harmony between people and respect for the environment.
With this in mind, he has drafted a document for discussion about the Universal Declaration of Animal Rights
♥ January 2018
The first Soul Giftee for this New Year is 2gatherstones. The sudden death of an only child, a young doctor, plunged 2gatherstones into a deep grief from which she struggles to emerge. Laying bare her soul and grief journey on the pages of her blog she gathers stones, rocks and pebbles for healing. Do go and visit.
Describing herself as a country girl, she shares the farm with her husband and an assortment of animals. Gertie Goose and Hector the Mule are two quirky characters whose photos and antics find their way to the blog now and then.
♥ February 2018
This blog has reached – and now exceeded – 2000 followers. Never in a million years did I expect this to happen. I am honoured, humbled, amazed to have reached this milestone. Thank you to each and everyone of you!!
To celebrate, the Soul Giftee for February 2018 is the 2000th member of my blogging family – Jennifer Dionne. A busy lady, she is mum to three kids, four cats, two dogs – oh, and one husband. In her busy life she finds time for an assortment of other activities such as camping, running, hiking – any physical challenge in fact. And wait – there is more! Jennifer is also a passionate supporter of her local community.
