Well the day has come at last, no not the day for the big drawing but the day that my little girl will be taking her first airplane trip. Yes today is the day that Torrie leave for her trip to Mexico. I was really fine with it, right up till I got up this morning, then SLAM! She leaves this afternoon and I won't get to see her or talk to her for more than a week. I am hoping she will be able to call at least once, and they will have a computer so emails are a must, but oh I am going to miss her!
I am going to use her time away to spend some much needed extra time with Morgen, she sometimes slides into the back ground and doesn't get as much attention so this will give us a lot of time to spend together with no interruptions, I know she will be missing her big sister badly.
OK so on to the give away, I mentioned that I would continue to shop for my birthday give away, and so I have, I am only going to say that I have found a couple more really neat items to add to the basket!
I had a blast shopping with my friend Wendi, and she shared some of her favorite quilting tool also.
I have been stunned at the response to this give away, but don't be discouraged at the numbers, I do have a special surprise.... So make sure you enter, you know what they say.... you can't win if you don't enter, and the last couple of people to win said then never thought they would so, get that comment in before mid night on Friday! (but NOT on this post, on the one below!)
I also wanted to say thank you to everyone, such nice comments! It really does boost ones ego! LOL I have been having a hard time fitting my head through the door! OK so not really, but I guess I didn't think that giving away a gift on my own birthday was such a big deal, but given the comments I guess it is. I love the idea of giving something back. We live in such a ME world, how often to you hear... Yea Me, or It's All About Me, how often to we see examples of people who only care about them selves and not others? Where I live, pretty often, just think about when you drive or those people who feel it is OK to cut in line at the store. I have tried to teach my children (and my daycare kids too) that we should be kind, courteous, and help others, that giving and loving will bring you so much more than anger and selfishness. I truly believe that. So for me to give on my birthday to all of the lovely people who take time out of their day to stop by and read my silly little blog, this is how I would thank you.
Have a wonderful and Blessed day.
And please keep Torrie in you thoughts, she will be having so much fun, but I really want her back to me safe and sound at the end of next week. (yep a mommy's worries)
