A Mother's Day GiveAway
I've been looking at the calendar today. Seems like the year 2010 is sailing along even faster than 2009 did. Does it seem that way to you? Life just seems to be zooming past, barely allowing me to recognize one day from the next. I can't say I'm crazy about my days turning into yesterdays in such a blur.
The other day I was feeling particularly down about time going by so fast. It had occurred to me that I only get to see my son about once a year and if I am lucky enough to live another twenty years....that means I'll only see him twenty more times. Well, that's simply not enough!! What's a mother to do? So, I called him and let him know that he needs to let me 'see' him more often on that lovely camera we have with our Apple computers......I figure seeing him and hearing his voice via the computer is much better than not seeing him at all and even though we have to kind of 'plan' it...it's a real treat for me. We simply must do that more often. You know, a phone call is great....after all there's 'that' voice. But, the face...well, there's nothing better for a mother to see than 'that' face!
So, having said all that....I'm having a giveaway for Mother's Day. Leave your comment on this post and your name will be in the running for the following items:
A little book about mothers by Mary Engelbreit
A package of three charms by Blue Moon
A card of vintage crystal buttons
Two spools of silk embroidery thread by Kreinik
A tiny rose plate with three mother-of-pearl buttons
A wonderful crazyquilted needle case made by my friend, Brenda, which I purchased to give to YOU...embellished with a beaded edge I added just today.
So, there you have it....a Mother's Day GiveAway....please comment, then let me send all these goodies to one of you to keep or give to your mom! take care, pat
PS. Remember to check back on Sunday night!
