All inspire and bless me daily!
Several years back I felt compelled to reach out and let some of these women know, how much they meant to me. I wanted to encourage them, and let them know that I noticed what awesome mothers, grandmothers, and aunts they are! Because sometimes being a mother can be a little thankless.
I bought a box of Day Spring cards, then I made a list of women. I told each one exactly how they inspired me and how BLESSED I was to have them in my life. I hadn't intended this to be something I would do every year, but when one mother told me, with tears in her eyes, that the card I had sent her was the only card she had received for Mothers Day that year....first I went and kicked her husband in the keester and then I decided I needed to try and do this every year. Sometimes, the women I send cards to, are women I hardly know, but they came to mind so I send them a card. (I was just kidding about the keester part by the way...but I thought about it.)
Over the last year and a half this blog has put me in touch with so many amazing women! (and some amazing men too!) I wanted to do something to tell you how much you bless me everyday. You encourage and inspire me in so many ways. I don't know what I would do with out you! Really! No foolin! Ok, I'm starting to tear up. Don't make me cry!
One of the amazing women that this blog has connected me with is Robin. Robin was one of my first readers. (Bless her heart.) We met and have gotten together several times. Robin is designing my new adventure...Eat 2gather...more about that later. Robin is not only a wife and mother, she is also a Graphic Designer/Web Designer, AND she has her own jewelry line Design Smith, which you can check out on her Etsy Store. God has put some REALLY incredible women in my life, sometimes I have to pinch myself I can't believe how blessed I am!
Because you all are so awesome, and I am so blessed to have you in my life! I asked Robin if she would be willing to do a giveaway! She said YES! She created the two beautiful pendants. I couldn't choose which one to give away. I love them both! So if you win, you get to do the choosing for yourself.
