Well hello there. I must say that I feel like a completely different person than I did in my last post. It's amazing what a shower and a night in my own bed can do for me. Thanks to all of you have asked about Hollyn. She's still pretty sick, but we are working on it. Please continue to pray for her recovery. And while I'm home today forcing her to sit still long enough for her breathing treatments, how about a giveaway? Yes? Good. This one is special.
Bloggers, meet my friend Dianna.
We met at Created for Care when we were seated at the same table for dinner. And she is WONDERFUL. Seriously, I don't that I know someone more genuine and loving and patient. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed getting to know her and to hear her sweet story. After struggling with infertility (and all of the heartache that comes with it), Dianna and her husband are preparing to bring home their SON from Ethiopia! There are currently #28 on the wait list and are aching to have him in their arms. You know how sometimes you meet someone and think, "She will be an amazing mom one day"? Please tell me I'm not the only person who thinks that sometimes....Anyway, she is one of those people. I can't wait to watch her story unfold and to see her son's sweet face.
In the meantime, while they continue to wait, Dianna wants to give ONE of these to TWO of you:
These are her fundraising shirts that she's selling on her blog. She actually gave me one at Created for Care-- the one right to the left. And it is seriously one of the softest, most comfortable shirts I've ever owned. I LOVE it and would probably wear it every other day if that were socially acceptable...or if I did laundry that often.
Dianna wants to give one white and one red shirt away. You can choose which of the three designs you want on your shirt and your size (of course). I'll simply choose a red shirt winner and a white shirt winner and then we can work out the details.
Here's how you can enter (you can do one or all-- your choice):
1. Visit Dianna's blog. You'll notice it's new. And she needs some followers. Follow her and come back here and leave a comment saying you did. Plus, by following you'll have a front row seat as her story with her son unfolds. You know you don't want to miss it.
2. Leave her a comment on her blog encouraging her during this time of waiting. I know how hard it was for me to wait for a date I'd had marked on my calendar for months while waiting for the birth of my girls...imagine waiting indefinitely. Once you'd left some happy thoughts on her blog, come back here and tell me that you did so.
3. Follow my blog or remind me that you already do.
That's it. Easy peasy. Just please leave a SEPARATE comment for each way you enter, please.
I'll have Libby choose a winner on Sunday, April 22.
And if you don't win or want one in each color, you can order them from Dianna.
Just check out her blog for details.
Here's hoping your Thursday is the best one yet.
The commenting may now commence.
