    Congratulations Bella you deserve it.

  3. Afrobella, dear heart, I voted for you in all three categories.
    I did a Control + F for Afrobella and clicked those Radio Buttons…

    Put simply you are an absolutely phenomenal writer!

    You, Afrobella, have such creative flare – I can only read with awe at the way you encourage others to communicate with you on topical issues that *may* not be covered on the web or in print.

    Your honesty and loyalty are such that I consider you, in my eyes, a rare gem.

    Although we have never met before I feel privileged to be able to consider you as a friend – I’m positive that I’m not alone when I type these words either!

    The ability that you have to share your written images with your readers and discuss your thoughts in such panoramic vision is something that SHOULD be awarded, rewarded and celebrated every day that you wake to type your feelings out for all of us to absorb.

    Much love to you!
