Monday August 6th 2018 - A Very Special Day

Ladies and Gentlemen - Please join me to wish a person who is not just a great soul but also has a heart of gold as many of you would already know.

A special breed among humans who not only is important in steemit but in our society as well. The type of personalities we need to be around with and fill our life with positivity.

In this age where people are looking to profit from another, here comes a guy who could help you out of any situation no matter how deep he has to dig for it and expect nothing back in return.

Talk to him for a few minutes and you will know exactly what i mean.

Even better talk to anyone from our lovely family - You all are most welcome to join the family- @gratefulvibes - and discord link =

I joined steemit less than a month ago and was lucky enough to find the gratefulvibes family.

Whenever i needed something or i felt sad i knew there was a guy with whom you i can talk to, who would always guide me to the right path and make sure i don't fall.

So if you are a new joiner here or have been over here for years i urge you all to FOLLOW @paradise-found (Papa Bear)

Fun Fact - I still don't know his real name yet and i don't intend to knowing it as well because me and many others just love calling him our "PAPA BEAR"



Also do remember to follow the 2 most important people in his life : Papa Bear i hope i got the names right :)

Wife Martha : @wrladyhawk
Daughter Lesly : @islander

So on this special occasion i would love to do a GIVEAWAY - 6 SBD

The rules are simple like our last contest but with a twist in the comments.
Your comments can make this interesting.

  • Upvote this post

  • Follow Me

  • Comment (Most Important) - On The Topic Below

  • Resteem - Optional

The topic for your comment would be - "Who are you most grateful for?"

There would be 3 winners with the judge being the man himself @paradise-found (Papa Bear) Winners would be based on the best comments.

1st Prize : 3 SBD
2nd Prize : 2 SBD
3rd Prize : 1 SBD

And if you ask me whom i am grateful for i think you all already know who that is : Thank you for being my friend Papa Bear and for looking out for me. It means a lot.

And i am happy to announce the WINNER for my previous contest @madushanka
We will be exchanging discord user names soon and you can help me claim some byteballs and you can earn through your referral link :)

"Who am I'm most grateful for?"
This is a tough one, but I'll have to pick my daughter - Alison!

She'll be two years old next month, and she is a handful! She is my miracle child. My fiancee and I tried once before and she had a miscarriage. It was the worst day of my life, we took a shower together and I got out first. As I walked towards our room I heard my fiancee yell and start crying. I ran back into the bathroom and she was pointing down at the bottom of the shower......there lying on the shower floor was our child. I'm crying while typing this. I didn't know what to i bury our dead child's fetus? I freaked out and flushed my child down the toilet....I don't want to talk about it anymore but we found out that my fiancee has RH Negative blood, so pretty much what caused the miscarriage was her body attacked our child because we have different types of blood that don't mix. I thought we would never have a child together and it ate me up inside. Then a couple years later she got pregnant, I was so happy but also very scared. I didn't wanna go thru that pain all over again. Long story short...Alison was born and was very healthy! YESSSS!
I guess there's a shot that people with RH Blood can take so their body's don't attack the fetus. The birth of Alison Kay was a miracle and a true blessing! I'm the happiest man alive when I'am around her! She's the reason I wake up and go to work, I've started a college fund for her, and I'm not gonna lie...I spoil my baby! It's not the things I do for her tho, it's the things she does for me that make me so grateful and proud to tell people "Hey, this is my daughter Alison!"053.jpg

Thanks for taking the time and reading this and I wish you all the best! Much love and respect to @blog-fictions! You seem like a wise and genuine person, and I'm glad I came across this post!

I can't imagine going through the pain of losing a child...i am so glad you have been blessed with another is very emotional and fills me with joy as well...may you and your family have the best of lives and I also thank you for sharing this wonderful experience with us :)

Your welcome, i wish you the best too! How long does this giveaway last by the way?

amazing dear...Happy Birth day @Paradise-found and Happy Friendship Day @blog-fictions :)))

Thank you :)
Wish you the same...

Happy birthday to your friend. I've never met him that I remember but seems like a really good guy!

In response to your challenge/question thingy.. I'm most grateful for my parents and friends and family and even the people I don't know.. The more I learn about spirituality I think we're all sort of "one".. So even if I don't know someone, I still have love. But.. I admit.. I am a biased human being to an extent, and I feel stronger towards close friends and family. However.. I do try to extend that as much as I can outwards to all people, and not just people but animals as well and aliens too if they exist! :) We may be different and some are even ruthless predators, though I think we all come from the same source and on some level, we're all part of the "one".

Thank you for wishing my friend :)
You seem to be a person who is really strong on values....
Thank you for participating in the contest and have an awesome day ahead :)

It's nice to be in the family.
And I'm grateful for two persons right now.
@minhaz416 (He is a good friend. He tried to help me with lots of information. And I'm really grateful to him.
@minimining (He is also a good friend. When I didn't have any other persons to help me in some way, I've found him always. I don't know his real name yet but he is very friendly.

I totally get your's a nice and happy family...

Having a friend like Papa Bear @paradise-found is like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. People dream of it and are overjoyed when they find it. Thank you for being such a blessing to Steemit especially to Gratefulvibes family!. Happy birthday, Paps! That alone is gratitude. You truly are a blessing and inspiration to us. May God bless you and your wonderful family more lovely and meaningful years. ONE LOVE <3

It's your choice...I can never force you..we all have our individual preferences....I am off all social I completely get your point...

Well I am on here, he he, but yeah... =)

Happy Birthday Papa Bear.......
Sorry for the delayed response but I do agree with you alice that steemit should add a feature of post notification...

So coming on the topic "Who are you most grateful for?"
Firstly I am most grateful of Almighty God! who gave me this wonderful life and blessed with so loving family my Ma, Pa, siblings. I am highly grateful to God to let me experience the great pain and darkness by losing my vision by an accident. That darkest phase of my life give time to me to find the real ME, and the phrase that I learned in school times that Good people can be tested in our bad times. It was a phase of around One and a Half long years. I was left with my family and few good friends who defines the real word F.R.I.E.N.D. I am thankful to all of them to be with me as my strength. Only because of them I am living this beautiful life again.
And last but not the least Dr. Ang Lee & Dr. Faiz Al-Noor of Malaysia who have treated my like their own son during the whole treatment in their house in Kuching. They have given me a new life and a new vision to see this beautiful world. Now I am a totally changed man. I respect all the creatures, nature, our environment, our earth, this whole universe.

This all thing happened to me just by the grace of Almighty God, who has given me this precious life. Thank you GOD.

I am so glad that you have your vision back..there are many good people on earth...and I am glad you found them...may you have a beautiful life...

Your welcome...
Have a great day :)
