The Blogger Recognition Award (Twice!), and The Mystery Blogger Award

This week, since I haven’t yet written the next Wonder Wednesday, I decided to accept these awards that I should have accepted… months ago… **crawls under desk in utter shame** So I guess this Wonder Wednesday, you get to find out more about me. I’m not sure how I feel about that… I didn’t want to be the subject of a Wonder Wednesday, but I do like awards, so…ย  ๐Ÿ˜† Here we go. ๐Ÿ™‚

(Also, I am very behind in responding to comments and I’m slowly getting to them all, just in case you have commented and I haven’t responded yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )


Thank you to Carlyย and Gail for nominating me for this award! ๐Ÿ™‚ It means a lot to me that you think I’m deserving of this award. โค

The Rules:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
2. Write a post to show your award.
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award.
6. Comment on each blog to let them know youโ€™ve nominated them and a link to the post you created.

My blog started in April of 2016, mostly because my friends had WordPress blogs. I started it mainly to share things with them – I never expected so many people would visit my little blog and that I would meet so many wonderful people here. It has been a blessing. โค

Two pieces of advice…

Firstly, let God lead you to write. When I started blogging, I never really intended to share my poetry and photos. I thought I wanted to alternate between book reviews and Bible studies. Not that there is anything wrong with those. I had put myself and this blog in a box when God obviously wanted me to do more than just that and trying to fight against it caused unneeded writer’s block and stress about writing the next post. Once I opened up and followed Him, things worked out so much better and blogging was much easier.

Secondly, read other blogs. Like the posts. Comment if you want to.ย  (But please don’t like and comment if you don’t actually read, haha.) The community is amazing. I was so shy at first, that I didn’t comment much. I try to comment more now.


Thank you to Amazing Tangled Grace for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award! ๐Ÿ™‚ It means so much that you thought of me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Again, I am skipping the facts part because after answering all these amazing questions, I don’t know what else I can say about myself.ย ๐Ÿ˜†

What is a Mystery Blogger Award?

Okoto Enigma created this award by being what she calls โ€œcreatively boredโ€, obliquely naming it after herself, which is both clever and cool! This award is for โ€œamazing and ingeniousโ€ bloggers alike, who find โ€œfun and passionโ€ in writing.

Here are the Rules:

Put the award logo/image on your blog.
List the rules.
Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Mention the creator of the award.
Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
You have to nominate 10-20 people.
Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.
Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; With one weird or funny question (specify).
Share your link to your best post (s).

The questions I was given:

  1. What is your favorite dessert?
    • Mmm, I like so many… maybe cheesecake. ๐Ÿ˜€
  2. What is your favorite work of fiction?
    • Just one?ย ๐Ÿ˜ฎย At the moment, I really like Once Upon A Summer by Janet Oke. I read it for the second time and it was wonderful.
  3. Pepsi or Coke?
    • Coke! Haha, Pepsi is good too, but I have such fond memories of visiting my grandparents as a kid and they always let me drink a Coke in a glass bottle, and it was so special. โค
  4. What was something that made you smile today?
    • Writing this post and seeing these wonderful people who thought my little blog deserves these awards. โค
  5. What are your three favorite things about blogging?
    • Talking to the community. Reading posts by the community. Adding my own posts to the community. โค

Picking nominees is sometimes the most stressful part of the awards because I don’t want to leave anyone out. So I’m going to leave these open to anyone who wants to participate. ๐Ÿ™‚

Questions for the nominees:

Same as the ones in the awards above. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Even More Awards! โค

This is truly so humbling, y’all. Thanks so much for the nominations! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  โ™ฅ If it’s okay, I’ll skip the “tell three things about yourself” rule for the Mystery Blogger Awards since I am answering a lot of questions here. #rebel Hang onto your hat if you are wearing one; this is going to be a wild ride!


Thank you to Message in Stanza for nominating me for the Awesome Blogger Award for the second time! Maggie over at Dreaming of Guatemala created this awesome award. This is a direct quote from her blog about it: ย โ€œThis is an award for the absolutely wonderful writers all across the blogging world. They have beautiful blogs, are kind and lovely, and always find a way to add happiness and laughter to the lives of their readers. That is what truly defines an awesome blogger.โ€

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Include the reason behind the award.
  • Include the banner in your post.
  • Tag it under #awesomebloggeraward in the Reader.
  • Answer the questions your nominator gave you.
  • Nominate at least 5 awesome bloggers.
  • Give your nominees 10 new questions to answer.
  • Let your nominees know that theyโ€™ve been nominated!

Message in Stanza’s Questions:

  1. If you were in a band, what kind of music would you play, what instrument would you play and what would you band name be?
    • Are there pianos in bands? If so, I’d say that, because that’s the only instrument I can half-play. ๐Ÿ˜„ I really like rock music, so I guess some sort of Christian rock music. (I love rock ballads!) Band name… The Rock Band? Like, how Christ is our Rock? ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. What triumphs and obstacles have you faced that has inspired your creativity?
    • God is helping me overcome depression. I still have battles with it on occasion, but He has already won the war! I am so grateful, I can’t help but write Him praises. I wrote one poem that I have yet to publish that really highlights this, I think. The running title is “Cross In My Heart,” so keep your eyes open for that!
  3. What makes you the happiest, family, friends, religion, or being inspired with your creativity?
    • All of those do, but it is only by God’s grace that I can enjoy them. In Him, there is joy!
  4. If you have no fear of death, what would you do?
    • Get up close and personal with some of God’s creation that I would normally stay away from in order to not be lunch. ๐Ÿ˜„ I would pet a tiger, ride an elephant, hang glide with the eagles, swim with sharks – the hang gliding and swimming thing would normally scare me to death, so if I don’t fear death, that is no longer a problem; I’ll just be scared senseless without dying.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚
  5. Would you rather fish or skydive? And why did you pick that one?
    • Fish! Because I am back to being able to die from my fear of heights again. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  6. What bores you to death?
    • Many sports. (Sorry sports fans.) I’d rather play than watch. ๐Ÿ˜„
  7. What is your biggest pet peeve?
    • …just one? ๐Ÿ˜„ When I can’t find something. It makes me nuts. I have a tiny book of nature poems that I misplaced last month and it drove me up the wall that I couldn’t find it. My mom eventually stumbled across it. In the bookcase. Talk about frustrating… ๐Ÿ˜…
  8. If you could choose your last words to your loved ones on you death bed, what would you say?
    • Okay, so… is it sad that this question requires the least amount of thinking of all of these questions thus far? Just a warning, this is going to get a bit dark. These are fragments of a poem that I wrote years ago:
    • Before I depart, there is one thing Iโ€™d like to teach.
      As the pendulum goes forth and back,
      It will eventually stop, when the end is reached;
      Like a candle soon runs out of wax,
      Or the tide washes ashore a beach –
      These, my friends, are the facts.

      I wish for no one to lament because of me,
      I believe that everything happens for a reason,
      Even if we know not what that may yet be.
      Time will pass, and change will the seasons,
      My impending death will not stop these.

      So as my spirit is slowly taken away,
      To heaven where I may again find peace,
      I want you to remember me as today,
      Not as the body that will soon cease.

Thank you to Teresa for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award for the third time!

The Rules:

  1. Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  2. List the rules.
  3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog!
  4. Mention the creator of the award and provide a link to their blog as well. Thank you toย Okoto Enigma.
  5. Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  6. You have to nominate 10-20 people.
  7. Notify each of your nominees by commenting on their blog.
  8. Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify).
  9. Share your link to your best post(s).

Teresa’s Questions:

  1. If you could change one thing about our country, what would it be and why?
    • That God isn’t taken out of schools. Give the children a chance to know Him, and maybe they will be less likely to go down the wrong path!
  2. Which super hero powers would you like to have, if given a chance? Why?
    • Skye // Daisy from Agents of SHIELD. (I’m not sure what that power is called, but I really like it, it’s quite unique.) I could use that to protect people and also have a little fun when no one needs saving…
  3. What motivates you to blog (write)?
    • My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also enjoy writing for some blogging prompts and challenges.
  4. What is something you like to collect, if anything?
    • Too much over the years! As a kid, it was bottle caps and pennies. Now, I still like old coins – my grandma gave me some of my great uncle’s collection that she inherited and I treasure those. I also collect crosses. I have one whole corner shelf dedicated to crosses. It’s a constant reminder of what He has accomplished. And I have too many books. I can’t forget postcards. I like getting postcards wherever I go, because they are inexpensive and usually have a pretty photo on them. I was lucky when I went to a flea market and found a bunch of old ones from all over the world! And sometimes, my friends send me one when they go someplace. Here is a small sampling from my collection (you should be able to click each one for a larger view):

  5. If given the chance to rename any fast food restaurant, which would it be? What new name would you rename to?
    • Wow, that is such a great, unique question! ๐Ÿ˜„ I’m tempted to say Taco Bell. Why a bell? The bell isn’t made of taco, and the bell isn’t shaped like a taco. It makes no sense. La Casa Grande De Tacos. (Large House of Tacos. I think. Thank you to my friend who is more fluent in Spanish than I am for helping me figure out how to say that in Spanish!) That makes more sense!

Thank you to Maggie for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award for the fourth time!

  1. Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  2. List the rules.
  3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog!
  4. Mention the creator of the award and provide a link to their blog as well. Thank you toย Okoto Enigma.

  6. You have to nominate 10-20 people.
  7. Notify each of your nominees by commenting on their blog.
  8. Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify).
  9. Share your link to your best post(s).

Maggie’s Questions:

  1. What is something you used to despise, but actually quite like now?
    • Westerns. The Rifleman, Gunsmoke and Bonanza are pretty good sometimes.
  2. When was the last time you laughed really hard?
    • When I was talking to a friend online and I made a typo and auto-correct failed me and made it even worse. XD
  3. Whatโ€™s the best book that you read recently? Why did you enjoy it?
    • That’s hard! I haven’t finished Humility by Andrew Murray or Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ by John Piper yet, but I really like them so far. The last book I finished was Black by Ted Dekker and it was so great! I also love the author’s ability to create such an interesting world and plot!
  4. Name 5 of your favorite movies.
    • In no particular order: On The Town, Sound of Music, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe,ย  The Hunger Games,ย  It’s A Wonderful Life.
  5. What are you the most thankful for?
    • Jesus! Without Him, I am nothing and I would have nothing.

Thank you to Hannah for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award for the fifth time!

Rules:

  1. Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  2. List the rules.
  3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog!
  4. Mention the creator of the award and provide a link to their blog as well. Thank you toย Okoto Enigma.

Hannah’s Questions:

  1. If you had one wish, what would it be?
    • That everyone would have a chance to hear the Gospel. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. If you could get a sequel/extra series to a film or a show that is no longer on air, what would you choose?
    • Revolution. NBC cut the show without ending it. Now I will never know what happened! I liked Charlie; she reminded me a little of Katniss from the Hunger Games.
  3. Who would you choose to be your alter ego and why?
    • Hard question! In a way, I guess I already have one. I am Grace, but Penelope Payne has been my online alter ego since 2009. I don’t know if that counts? If not, then… Skye // Daisy or “Quake” from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I would have too much fun with that…
  4. If you could meet any person in history, who would it be and what would you ask them?
    • Jesus. ๐Ÿ™‚ “Why did you create mosquitoes?!” “Why did you create poison ivy?” ๐Ÿ˜‚ Okay, seriously… “What did You write in the dirt?” (In reference to John chapter 8 verse 6.)
  5. What is your favourite band?
    • There are so many I adore, but lately, I love Rend Collective. A lot.

I’d like to thank Elizabeth from The Comfortable Coop for nominating me for the Real Neat Blog Award! This is my first time receiving this one. ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Is there something that you do that makes you really happy when youโ€™re feeling down?
    • Praying and talking to friends. ๐Ÿ™‚ Writing and reading also helps.
  2. Is there someone (real or fictional) who inspires you? Who is it and why does this person inspire you?
    • Jesus! ๐Ÿ™‚ He died for me, so that I may live for Him. Also, He has done so many wonderful things – how can I not be inspired by Him?
  3. Do you spend a lot of time listening to, reading, or watching the news?
    • No. Not at all. It’s too depressing.
  4. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
    • Night owl. I’ve tried being a morning person, but unless morning can start happening around noon, it’s probably not going to happen. XD LOL. I am my most creative at night. ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. Do you have any pets? What kind and what are their names?
    • This is going to take a while! I have 17 cats: Angel, Belle, Blackie, Catalina, Dottie, Firecracker, Gabbie, Jay, Lolli, Mama Kitty, Monkey, Ode, Rabbit, Radar, Simone, Sketcher, and Sparrow. I also have two opossums that hangs around that I call Prim and Philip, and a raccoon that hangs around that I call Rocky. There is a rabbit that has been hanging around too, but I haven’t named him // her yet. Oh, and a toad has been sitting on the porch-step for the last six days during the afternoons, and I may name him Domino.
  6. Do you talk to yourself out loud?
    • Yes. ๐Ÿ˜‚ You gotta talk to someone intelligent sometimes. (That’s what my grandma said about it. XD I’m not that boastful, I promise!) I also talk to animals as if they were humans…
  7. ย Is Jesus your savior?
    • Yes! โค

First, I’d like to thank Hannah for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award for the second time! I completely forgot that you had nominated me and saw your comment when I recently updated my About Me page. I’m so sorry I’m just now getting to it.

 


I’d like to thank Keri L for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award for the second time!


I’d like to thank Keri L for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award for the second time!


I’d like to thank FaithWalkingHebrews for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award for the third time!

I’d like to thank Tina at Invisible Illness Blog for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award for the second time! (Your questions have been answered at the end of the tag.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ )


And I’d like to thank Allen R. Kive for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award for the third time!


I’m going to do this differently because I am a bit short on time and because this seems to be the perfect way to give facts about myself without repeating myself too much – because I am running out of facts to tell you all about myself. ๐Ÿ˜‚

20 Things You Might Not Know About Meย Tag

Eloise over on Highly Improbable Blog tagged anyone reading, so here we go. ๐Ÿ™‚

How tall are you?

Probably as tall as I’m going to get. XD Maybe… 5’6? Taller if I decide to put on heels, which I love but my feet despise – and it has to be thick heels unless you like watching me go splat on the pavement. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what is it?

I mentioned this on the first One Lovely Blog Award, however, this time, I’m posting an example of it – I can write backwards in print and in cursive!

backward-writing

What is your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

Probably when someone wields words to hurt people. That happened a lot last November it seemed, and it’s still happening.ย ๐Ÿ˜ฃ They say that the pen is mightier than the sword, but we shouldn’t be using our keyboard as a weapon to hurt people!

What is your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

When someone uses Christ’s name in vain. (This also applies to the previous question. But I usually hear it more often than I read it.)

Whatโ€™s your favorite song?

Only one? XD Uh… there are so many good songs. This one is one of my favorites ever though:

Whatโ€™s your favorite Etsy shop that isnโ€™t yours?

Uh. Is it bad that I don’t know what an Etsy shop is? **blushes**

What is your favorite way to spend your free time when you are alone?

Probably reading. I just finished reading Black by Ted Dekker (which was amazing) and I’m almost finished with Winds of Promise by Brodie and Brock Thoene. I have a huge stack of books to dive into after that. (I really should get a Goodreads account…)

Whatโ€™s your favorite junk food?

Chocolate. Specifically, dark chocolate. And pretty much anything covered in it.

Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I do! And this may take a while. XD I have one dog named Rosie (shown below) who must think she is a cat, especially when it comes to food. She loves cat food and fish more than anything. o_O And last but not least… I have 17 cats who are as follows: Angel, Belle, Blackie, Catalina (shown below), Dottie, Firecracker, Gabby, Jay, Lolli, Mama Kitty, Monkey, Ode, Rabbit, Radar, Simone, Sketcher, and Sparrow. **whew**

catalina

rosie

What are your number one fiction and nonfiction books?

Oh man. Seriously? Haha. At the moment, Black by Ted Dekker is really trying to take over the Narnia series by C. S. Lewis for the Fiction slot, while Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ by John Piper is overtaking The Agony and Glory of the Cross by Charles B. Hodges Jr, and it is entirely possible that Humility by Andrew Murray may overtake them both after I finish it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Whatโ€™s your favorite cosmetic?

Hmm… probably mascara (which I sometimes double as an eyeliner. XD)

When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

Oh boy… a while ago my mom and I went out to eat and I was so shy and nervous that instead of asking the waitress for tea with no ice, I asked for ice with no tea.ย  Strangers do it to me every time without meaning to. XD I’m still getting teased for this, but I can laugh about it now. At the time I just wanted to disappear.

If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Tea! ๐Ÿ˜€

Whatโ€™s your favorite movie?

Probably The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Classic. Although, I adore old musicals so Singin’ In The Rain and Yankee Doodle Dandy is right up there with it…

What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

I was home schooled and the only one in my “class.” So I guess I was everything at once…? XD Though I think I would have been a blend of class clown, nerd, and loner most likely.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Maybe somewhere in the mountains like the Ozarks or the Rockies. I think I could get fantastic photos there. Though I really want to see the ocean someday, so anywhere near the ocean might be nice too.

PC or Mac?

PC. I’ve never tried a Mac; and the majority of my games and programs wouldn’t work on a Mac anyway.

Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?

AHAHAHAHAHA- sorry. The last time a boy kissed me, it was Ode, my cat, and he doesn’t count. ๐Ÿ˜œ I’m single. I’ve never had a boyfriend. Or been on a date.ย  The only affection I get are from pets, and it’s not romantic at all. XD

Favorite celebrity?

I don’t really keep up with Hollywood enough to know…

What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

Can I cheat like Eloise did? XD I’m already best friends with Eloise (Highly Improbable Blog), Trey (Incorrigibly Cheerful) and Olivia (Refreshing Spirit), and have been since before we all created WordPress blogs. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  However, many bloggers I’d like to be best friends with are already talking to me so it could happen yet. ;D


The questions that Tina asked:

  1. What made you want to start a blog? Several of my best friends had blogs, (Links to their blogs above ๐Ÿ˜‰) and it seemed like a good idea. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. What is your favorite TV show? This is hard. XD Probably Scorpion. It’s exciting and it usually doesn’t get as gory or disgusting as many TV shows do. (Even if a lot of what they do is probably… not actually possible. ๐Ÿ˜‚)
  3. What is your favorite food to cook? Mac & Cheese or Spaghetti. Because usually it turns out edible… XD
  4. What is your biggest fear? I would say being up high or being under water or being in tight spaces, because all of those do scare me but… not as much as losing someone I love. So I’m going with that.
  5. Where were you born? Arkansas, USA! Born and raised, and still live here. ๐Ÿ™‚ Country girl at heart. โ™ฅ

Now, for the nominations, I know that some of your have received these awards before, so I’m going to do this a bit differently – instead of nominating someone for one award, the nominees can pick which one of the awards (or tag) they would like to do. No pressure to accept any though. ๐Ÿ™‚ So here we go:

Mystery Blogger Award

photogrid_14763656129752

โ€œMystery Blogger Awardโ€ is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion. ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย โ€“ Okoto Enigmaย 

Thank you for the nominations,ย Betcha Didn’t Knowย and Showers Of Blessingย for nominating me for this really award. Within a day of each other too! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hehe, this was such a great birthday surprise. ๐Ÿ™‚

Rules for the nominees:

  • Display the award logo/image on your blog
  • List the rules.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to the nominatorโ€™s blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
  • Answer 5 questions from the nominator
  • Nominate 10 โ€“ 20 people
  • Notify your nominees by leaving the nomination link in the โ€œcommentโ€ of their blog
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice, with one weird or funny question (specify)
  • Share the link(s) to your best post(s)

Three things:

  1. I am writing a Christian young adult novel during NaNoWriMo this month.
  2. I am fascinated by dreaming; especially the whole lucid dreaming and dream control concepts, both of which appear in the novel I’m writing.
  3. It is hard to come up with new things about myself that I haven’t repeated. XD

 

First, Betcha Didn’t Know’s questions:

  1. Do you have a role model?
    1. Jesus. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. What is your phobia?
    1. Probably failing the people I love, or failing God. That makes me very anxious and panicky.
  3. What dish do you cook the best
    1. Haha, this means something that I don’t usually burn or wreck. XD I’ll say macaroni and cheese. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. What is your favorite song
    1. I don’t know if I can narrow it down to just one. I am really obsessed with The Wonder Of It All by Point Of Grace right now. ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. Do you believe in ghost? ( weird question)
    1. If you mean spooky creepy dead people who want revenge like in a horror movie, then no. But if you mean the spirit of a person who died, then I guess yes? But I don’t think that they “haunt” people. ๐Ÿ™‚

And now, Showers of Blessing’s questions:

  1. Have you had a crush on your teacher as a teenager?
    1. I can say absolutely with 100% certainty, “No.” (I was home-schooled so my teacher was my dad. Ew. XD )
  2. If you had the power to change one thing in your past, what would that be?
    1. In one personal situation, I would stand up for myself. I’m not outspoken enough, and sometimes I let people run over me like a steamroller and then said people walk all over me like I’m part of the pavement. X)
  3. Which country is your next dream vacation, and what made you want to go there?
    1. Canada. It’s beautiful and it would be on the way to my dream vacation spot in the U.S., Alaska. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Do you think it is okay to keep secrets even between best friends?
    1. Depends on what the secret is and who the best friend is. ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. If you could be transformed into something else, what would be your preference, and why?(weird)
    1. I once dreamed (it was a lucid dream too) that I could shape-shift, so I choseย  to turn into a tiger. I could run free through the wood, and chase my “prey”, which was fun. I guess I’m a true cat lady at heart. ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t know if they were the “best” posts of mine, but I really liked howย My Lifeguard,ย Stained Glass, The Lord Is My Strength And My Shield, andย He Shall Strengthen Your Heartย turned out. ๐Ÿ™‚

I wish I had the time right now to type out nominees, but I only have about five more minutes to be online, so I will tag everyone reading this to answer the same questions I answered. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Have fun! โค
