I've made new friends and been reminded of tried and true ones. Today, these showed up.
They are from Babysmiling. Her show and tell for the week describes them perfectly, but what it doesn't say is how the package reminded me that my friends live far and wide. That, presumably, the words typed here stay with them for a spell, causing them to make an effort to package and ship bowls even while reveling in their new twin babies!
That is what amazes me most. Our binding ties remain, even as babies fly, or are born, and life takes over for a time.
I've shared before, but it's worth repeating in my emotional state that other blogging friends are participating in this event too.
Martha from A Sense of Humor made this gorgeous necklace.
And Lindsay from Destined To Be An Old Woman With No Regrets sent this framed shot all the way from her Canadian post as she watied out the end of her pregnancy!
Pamela donated a copy of her memoir, Silent Sorority.
And Are You Kidding Me? donated time to crochet some angels for the ornment drive!
And so, you can see why I feel like this raffle is as much yours as it is the people who physically walk in the door of the Springfield Bowling Alley on Sunday, November 15th.
Sure, you may not be able to take advantage of a gift certificate to a local eatery or come in to pain your own pottery, but there are many prizes in the ever growing list that could easily be shipped to your front door.
CLICK HERE to preview the current item list. READ the raffle directions. Then, if something catches your eye, ENTER using the donate button and be sure to specify how to distribute your tickets!
Thank again, to each of you, for your support over the last year. Your words have sustained me through every transition. This reality is yours to celebrate too.
While you do, peruse what the rest of the class is showing and telling!
