Thank You For Supporting Our Troops! Winners Here!

Thank you to everyone who participated in my Support the Troops giveaway! I received 161 comments on the giveaway post, which means I will be donating 161 care package items and 161 cards to Operation Homefront for our soldiers stationed overseas. Thanks for making my giveaway a total success! I was so touched by your personal stories of loved ones serving, or who had served, in the military. Thank you for sharing them with me. I have added all the active duty men and women mentioned in your comments to my prayer list!

There were 194 entries to win the two gift baskets I'm giving away, since everyone who entered by March 26th received an extra entry. The two winners selected by were #105 Lisa of Military Momz (how appropriate!) and #53 Brenda Lea of The Purple Lady's Art For Your Body & Home. Congratulations ladies! Please contact me at with your mailing address so that I can mail your care packages to you!

I wish it was within my means to give every single one of you a prize! I do have a new giveaway starting on April 5th, so be sure to check back then and enter to win a great prize!

Congrats to the WINNERS!!

This was such a great giveaway that I was proud to be a part of and post on my blog.

Let us remember daily those sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, husbands,and wives who have given and continue to give of themselves and their family members so that we might enjoy the daily freedoms that we so often take for granted.

Let us NEVER forget them.

My prayers are ALWAYS with them and their families. God Bless this great nation.

Love and Prayers,
