Sunflowers for Tina #lifeisgood

(photo courtesy of Heathir McKee, photographer)
My friend had this awesome photo, and I knew I couldn't find a brighter sunflower for Tina.
 
 
Tina Downey always made time to write encouraging comments and give extra attention to details. She was forthright, honest, and real, and yet she always looked for and at the brighter side.
 
Although I didn't know her as well as many others in the blogging community, I will miss her bright sunflower attitude and her posts that made me feel as if I were home.
 
 
 
In memory of Tina Downey, the A to Z Team is hosting a sunflower tribute on September 8, 2014 – Remembering Tina Downey.
 
 Prior to that date, purchase or plant a sunflower in her honor. (If you have to resort to plastic, that’s cool.) Take a photo of your sunflower and post in in her memory on Monday, September 8.
 
Tina loved her sunflowers, and we want to splash the blogging world with sunflowers that day and honor a truly amazing woman who was friend and family to so many.
 
 You can sign up now or add your link when you post your sunflower. Please help us spread the word! Add Tina's motto #LifeisGood as hashtag and share about this blogfest on all social media platforms.
 
Let’s brighten the Internet with sunflowers the way Tina brightened the lives of so many.

"...her posts that made me feel as if I were home..." is the perfect description; or as another blogger put it: "...witty, homespun posts..."
Life is good!

It's beautiful and amazing to see how many lives one person has touched. Tina made life better for many, even with one small comment here and there.
