We Have A Winner

So Friday I picked the winner for the give away.  It was all very scientific.  I wrote the numbers from  1 to 9 (I had nine entries) on small pieces of paper and wadded them up.  I then through them on the floor and told Tim to pick one ( Ti had already went to bed).  He did an excellent job. 

I actually know the person that won.  She was one of my  FAVORITE elementary teachers.  Mrs. Belinda. The character trait that I remember most is her patience.  For instance I was crying over not being able to make a cursive A. ( I don't know what was up with that.  That is like the easiest cursive letter to make.  Guess I had a mental or emotional block for that letter.  ANYWHO)  I remember her telling me everything would be okay and that she was sure I could do it.  ( I cried a whole lot over that incident. I might have been a little dramatic.  I wanted perfection.) 

I am sure that she probably doesn't even really remember this incident but she had an impact on my life that day with her encouraging words. Who could have been more perfect to win the giveaway that will hopefully also be an encouragement not only to her but to someone else when she gives the extra jar away. 

If you would like to get to know Mrs. Belinda a little better just hop on over to her blog Law of Kindness.  I am sure you will be blessed.  Thanks to everyone that entered.  That was the most comments that I ever received on a post. HURRAY!!!

PS  My hadwriting is still bad.  I have gotten over it though.....Really who cares.
