The Postman Cometh

Girls, y'all know that when it comes to running their head, no one is better at it than me, but I got to tell you Amy's and Theresa's surprise caught me totally off guard. In fact, I'm still trying to find the right words and haven't.... but trust me, I'm working on it and plan on trying to express my heartfelt appreciation in the next few days. Just give me a little more time to wrap my head around all this. I mean how do you say thank you for this kind of love. How do I say thank you to the Lord for putting me on this road that has led me to all you incredible women and men. And just when I think it can't possibly get any better, today I go to the mail box to pull out the usual bills and I find a brown envelope in there. Now, I always get excited when there are big brown envelopes in my ugly mailbox(even if it is feminine protection), but today I got ropa-doped by one of the most blinding left hooks ever! Look what was inside that plain brown wrapper...An O-REE-JA-NAL Lulu Chippy bracelet for my little trashette! My grand baby is an official Junk Sista! In fact, I think this classifies her as a Jr. Junkette or a little Miss Chipster! There are grown women who would crawl over glass to have one of these bracelets, me included. You can't imagine the tricks I had to do to get mine! I am just kidding. Lulu, being the darling she is, gave me mine the first time she met me, just because....that's the way my honey baked hams roll! Our little baby is gonna rock the NICU when the nurses get a load of this! It came wrapped in the darling hankie with the card and the official autograph of the one and only Lulu! Heck, that signature alone must be worth a mint. Lulu, what can I say? I love you and you are one lulu of a friend for sure.
Am I blessed or what? In the virtual world of blogging, I have some of the most tangible friends I could ever ask for. Y'all have given me so much and I can never begin to repay the debt of gratitude I owe each and every one of you.
But hey, speaking of jewelry, I want to give y'all a little inside advantage to a giveaway ending tomorrow night. Donna at Gather is celebrating by giving not one, not two, but three prizes. One is this beautiful hand painted necklace. Now girls, I really want to win this one and while I don't cheat(contrary to what you might have heard), I'm not above bribing on this one.
So go on over to Gather, pay attention to what you read...there will be a test. Beauty doesn't come cheap...I may, but not these great little works of art. And may the best chick(me) win!

Deb, you make me laugh! AND what's this little trash can following me around your blog? You are a techno genius. AND, don't you think there are reasons why we have all connected? Not serendipity so much as a plan of some kind;kind of like the string theory that interconnects us all. Anyway, I feel it and it shows in the love and kindness strangers are willing to show each other. It is powerful. AND, thank you for advertising my giveaway; you're the bomb, the bee's knees, a bag of chips and more, and start practicing your standup routine for the fall show. You are so funny we've got to have a stage built (maybe just a blanket hung over ropes and a soapbox so others can see how funny you are. Love you! I want you to win that necklace too. like too.

You have been one of the sweetest people to me, a newbie, and I just adore you! You give so much....so naturally, you get it back threefold!
