As Theresa so simply and perfectly put it, Bella is your baby as much as she is ours. Here is what your faith, prayers and love have done in just seven weeks. Look at that tiny hand now! Do y'all have any idea how you have touched me in the past few months? You couldn't because I just can't express it the way I want to. God has been our foundation and rock, but He placed each and every one of you in my life to be my support. When I've stumbled, you've been there to catch me before I hit the ground. You've talked me off the ledge, wiped my nose and carried me when I was too tired to walk. You gave me the strength I needed to be there for Jenn and Roby and ordered me to take a shower when I would forget to. You've made me laugh, cry and thank God each and every day for you. So, it is with a most humble and grateful heart that I say thank you. Thank You Lord for placing me in this world of beautiful people.
Theresa and Amy have taken a huge job on by creating this wonderful thing, no not thing, but love in action...Junk Sistas! I have seen some of the things y'all are donating and all I can say is WOW! I don't feel like I should participate in the raffle itself (I have this strange reputation of being the "amazing win it all woman" thanks to the 2 Chippys), but I am so wanting to. I can't believe the amazing talent and generosity of y'all. There are prizes I would LOVE to win, believe me!!! BUT, I do want to make a donation. The only things I have of any real value are my children and grandchildren and I'm afraid I can't bring myself to give them away just yet. But I do have one thing that everyone seems to want...Cat Daddy!
Here he is y'all. Now, I want to preface this by saying he knows I am doing this and he is willing to participate for the "cause"!
Now don't go getting any ideas that you will be getting him forever. Nope, I am just not that generous. You will, however, be getting him for one evening during the Fall Antique Show at Warrenton for dinner and a beer. That's right...I'm offering up the hunka hunka burning love for a dinner date at Zapp Hall's own Royer's Cafe. What could be more exciting? You pick the night...I highly recommend you do not choose that first Friday if you want him to be charming! I'll clean him up, deliver him, buy y'all dinner and your libation of choice. You then will get the rare opportunity of trying to get him to smile! He's kind of like the guards at Buckingham Palace. The smile takes some doing, but it is SO worth it! Now in case you are unable to attend the show at Zapp in the fall, I am also going to add something else to my donation. I'm not artistic, I don't make anything, I can't sew, (you gotta wonder at this point why he married me), but I can shop with the best of them. Cat Daddy's job is to make the money, mine is to spend it and I excel at my job. So, I'll be out shopping for the perfect go-along for this donation. I hope he meets with y'alls approval!
Now as I said earlier, he is totally aware of this and is a willing participant for the "cause", but he ain't fooling me for one second. C'mon y'all! What man would pass up the opportunity to have dinner with a lovely lady WITH his wife's blessing!!! My man is one smart cookie! And if you ask him real sweet like, he might even serenade you!
