Yes, it took me a whole week to get back to blogging! Seven straight days of blogging left me happily exhausted. So, this blog will ease me back into a weekly ritual. And I’m going to make it short and sweet.
I cannot thank each and every one of you enough. Your kindness and support brought me to tears and I felt so overjoyed at the love that you’ve given. Thank you for taking the time to gift me with your words of encouragement!
We have winners!! Before announcing those, I would like to take a moment to give out a few honorable mentions.
*Stu Saffer: Not only was he the very first person to comment, he also happened to be the only gentleman to post a comment. Thank you Stu 🙂
*Michelle: She commented on two blogs, leaving me doubly blessed!
*Marianne: I have known her longer than anyone else who posted! Twenty one years, give or take!! And her mom was my sister’s pediatrician AND she has twins girls AND she still has time to send incredibly sweet and sincere words of encouragement! Whew! You deserve a medal!
*Jessie: This lovely lady posted a comment from the furthest distance! Where, you might ask? Over 7,000 miles away, in Kabul, Afgahnistan!
*Vanessa: A close second in distance, coming from Switzerland and almost 6,000 miles away. These overseas gals really know how to spread the love far and wide!
And now, drumroll please!!! I instructed Alabama to only draw one name. Alabama decided that drawing three names sounded like a better idea. I documented the process:
Here’s where we had our hiccup. Alabama drew two names, and I told her to only take one name. So, she puts the two names down and drew a third. By the time I put the camera down to assist, the three names were mixed and who knows what was drawn when.
The three lucky winners are as follows in no particular order:
I will be emailing you in the next week to get your address and mail you the super awesome gift of gratitude! And who knows? Maybe I’ll eventually mail everyone something! Over the next few years of course :). Or once the girls are off to college. That sounds doable 🙂 Have a wonderful and joyful weekend!
