I'd love some suggestions for drawing prizes!

I know there will be days when I have time to give some thought to meaningful prizes for the drawings, but this isn't one of them! So, I could use some suggestions from my wonderful followers because I would really like to get things that you will all enjoy, but I am also on a little bit of a budget right now. I look forward to hearing your ideas!

My responses to comments...

I just wanted to take a minute to explain why I am creating new posts, instead of just responding to comments in the comments section. For some reason, when I have tried to post in the comments sections over the last couple of weeks, the page won't respond and I don't want any replies from my friends and followers to go unacknowledged. So, until I figure out what the problem is, I will reply to comments with posts.

Thanks for your kind words, Dawn!


I completely agree with you that there are people who have made bad choices and still deserve a second chance.

And I really appreciate your compliments about what I do for others. Although I've never really been one to toot my own horn, it's always nice to have someone acknowledge what you are doing! :)

Thank you, Sue!

Hi Sue!

Thank you SO much for sharing not only your dream of what you want to do, but also for letting me know about going to the movie in memory of your dad. I think that was such a neat way to remember a special time with him! I really appreciate your support and was touched by what you said. I have had a few others say that they have been inspired to start their own lists. My principal's third grade daughter even told her that they should start a list when they checked out my blog one day! As great as it is to be doing this list to build my own experiences, it is amazing to hear from others about their thoughts, too!

So, what's stopping you from going to Australia and New Zeland? Those are two places that I want to go, too, so if you need a travel companion, let me know!! :)

What do you want to do before you die?

I just finished watching Oprah and she had the guys from the MTV show The Buried Life. The guys on the show are doing a similar list to what I'm doing, but there are four of them and they are trying to complete a list of 100 things. That only works out to 25 items each. I think they have an unfair advantage over me! Ha ha! Plus, they are all young and single and without the responsibilities of full-time jobs and kids. I found myself both jealous (because they have a tv show!) and inspired by some of their stories because they help others to achieve their dreams, too. And I love their persistence!

So, now I'd love to hear from others about what they want to accomplish in their lives! What dreams do you have? If we share our dreams, we might be able to link up people that can help each other make out dreams come true!!

First Winner for the Bi-weekly Drawing!

Sorry that I'm a day late! The days got away from me! Ok, I put the names of my seven current followers in a box and I'm drawing the name of the winner of the beautiful little book by Barbara Ann Kipfer titled 1,001 Ways to Live in the Moment. And the winner is....Amber Wahl!! Since I work with Amber, I will be putting the book in her box at the school where we teach. So far, I know all of my followers and have all of their contact information, but I'm hoping to get to the point where I have people following my blog that I don't know. At that point, I'll have to post the winner and have them send me a message with their address for me to send their prize.

For the April 15th drawing, I'll be giving away a $10 Starbucks gift card!! Remember all of the names that haven't yet won will remain in the box to increase the odds of winning each time. And referrals mean bonus chances to win!! PLEASE help me spread the word about my blog and thanks to my friends who are my only followers so far!
