Wow - you have some nice things in your giveaway!

I've been blessed with good health for myself and my family. I'm blessed to still enjoy time with my parents, who are both in their 80s. I've also been blessed with some of the bestest online friends ever. And most recently, I've been blessed with an abundance of lettuce from our garden. :)

Congratulations Patricia!!!!

I want to apologize for posting the winner so late today, but my Grandpa passed away this week and the funeral was today. I had actually forgotten about posting the winner until just a little bit ago. So as not to turn Patricia's win into a downer post, I would like to share some of the blessings he had during his life...

My Grandpa was blessed with 99 years of life, 73 years of which he was married to his childhood sweetheart, my Grandma. They had 7 children, 16 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren. He, as well as Grandma, helped many children in need through the ministries they supported and visited throughout the U.S. and were blessed with many friends. He lived a very full and active life and had a very peaceful death-passing while he slept.

So while it is sad that he is no longer with us, his life was definitely something to celebrate!!

God Bless You Grandpa!!!
