Mirror and Ring Winners (FINALLY!)

We've tried to be patient.  Really we have.  And you all have been extremely patient.  But who knows if blogger will ever return our missing give-away comments to us! 

As many of you know, the latest giveaway was supposed to have ended on Thursday night last week.
Blogger experienced some major hiccups, and stuff got ugly there for awhile.  We are still missing 24 comments.  It didn't seem fair to draw winners without them!  So we waited patiently, and then not so patiently, and then we got smart and realized that I had my email set up so that all my give-away blog comments were automatically sent to a separate forgotten folder.  So that's what we're going with - 71 entries - and you'll just have to trust us on this one!

So, we had the random number generator pick 4 numbers, and here's what it chose:  48, 9, 58, 53.

The first winner is for our "Be Grateful" mirror above.  It's from our new line "This Thing Called Family."  #48 was....

Steve Lindemann!!!!! who said this:

"I'm grateful for the opportunity to homeschool my kiddos :)"


Now for the 3 ring winners:

#9 was Francine!!!!! ---  "I am so grateful for my wonderful son, he is only going to be 17 but he is one heck of a kid! Love you Joe"

happy birthday, Joe!

#58 was Heather!!!!! --- "I am so thankful for my husband, son and the little baby boy that is on the way!! :-)" 

How exciting, Heather!!!!

#53 was Andrea!!!!! --- "I'm grateful for my best friend, who gave me the greatest gift this week, which is the one-year anniversary of my dad's death from colon cancer (it's preventable - get screened at age 50!). She gave me helium balloons with notecards where I could write to my dad and then release them. 'I know he's in Heaven,' she told me. 'Tell him whatever you want.' I know, too, and that love, and that compassion, is Heaven on Earth. <3" 

Anniversaries are soooo hard, Andrea.  But what a good friend you've got!!!  She sounds like a keeper.  :-)  We lost our dad in 1997 when he was only 52.  So we know a little how you feel.  It doesn't feel like it now.....but it does get easier.
