Birthday Month Hive PUD

in LeoFinancelast month

What better way to kick off my Hive birthday month, than with Hive Power Up Day!

I will be celebrating my fifth birthday (I wish) on Hive, that is ;)

I signed up on 13 July 2017 to be precise, and what a journey it's been; full of ups and downs, not only here on the blockchain, but also in RL!

We've all seen the awful impact Covid had on the entire world, and now the destructive war in Ukraine that is affecting the lives and livelihood of the citizens of that country. The ordinary Russian citizen is facing a sky-rocketing cost of living, and the rest of the world is also starting to feel the impact of price increases in food and fuels.

Hive is still see-sawing, just like my little world here has been doing ever since the awful floods I've been speaking of. We're still waiting for some kind of restoration to start and hopefully, that will happen soon, as our municipality's new budget becomes available as of today.
Everyone seems to be having budgetary issues!

Another really troubling RL issue has cropped up, so I will have to dip into my kitty once more as there's a tiny hole to be filled. My power-up hence is going to be tiny, but I do believe that every little bit helps.

I feel blessed that I have been able to draw from my Hive wallet and use some of the stash I had been HODLing, for 'rainy days' like this!

The best way to save for times of trouble here in Hive, is by powering up.

I have finally made a move to help newcomers to Hive by joining @fionasfavourites HivePUD initiative. Fiona is an amazing inspiration, tirelessly helping Redfish here on Hive, month after month. The talented @coquicoin who is a very bizzy bee with curating and encouraging newcomers and older Hivers, was the one to finally set the flame alight, and as July is the birthday month for all three of us Golden Silver Girls, what better way to pay it forward by helping three Redfish!

I never in my wildest dreams thought that Hive would one day come to my rescue; doing something I love without having to invest a cent; writing and interacting with new-found friends has been the best experience to date, and I only discovered this about a year before retiring, so it's never too late to start!

The awesome @traciyork tirelessly keeps tabs on the many Hive PUD initiatives and you can read all about the prizes offered by the most amazing people for Hive power up day for July 1st 2022.

@hivebuzz is behind those Awesome badges and one can clearly see from the size of your badge, just how you've been doing with powering up.

Here is proof of my tiny power-up, but I will continue growing my account, which could have been double by now if it were not for RL, and I will continue my delegations and up them as and when I can!

Thank you @hivebuzz 💞

Thank you for participating in the PUD @lizelle. 💪🐝🌹

Hi Lizzie, Hive has been a real blessing in these times. I hope that the RL problem you are having to dip into your wallet has a speedy solution. Let's hope for a long life to Hive and to us.🐝
Have a lovely weekend 🤗

Thanks Eli, we really hope so. My son is having surgery next week, the specialist's tariff is higher than the medical aid will pay.
Hive is a lifesaver 💖

Thank God for Hive. And I hope your son's surgery goes well, I will keep him in my prayers.🙏🤗

Thank you Eli, he needs it as the surgeon said it should be successfull but he cannot guarantee it will solve the problem🙏🏻💞

Oh, Lizzie, I hope everything goes well, and the surgery is a success and solves the problem he has. I will keep him in my prayers. 🙏🏻🤗

Congratulations, Lizelle!! You ruck, woman. I find that you are a definite survivor!! Hive is blessed to have your energy!!

Happy birthday!! We came a month apart!

Thank you Denise! We've been moving in the same circles, so to speak...almost sounds snobbish LOL :)
But I really miss those podcasts @ethandsmith did way back, when with the sound effects of the steam-engine puffing away!
Enjoy your Sunday!

Omg, yes!! So many wonderful people have passed through.

He was one of the best. I was too caught up in my dad's care to fully appreciate it all like i could now.
