One Winner, still time to enter two times
Last Monday's winner didn't leave good contact info, so I selected another name: Stacie, a follower is now the winner. We pick more book winners on the 14 and 21. Still time to enter.
The Word Quilters hope you are finding time to cherish the season and even relax a bit. On page 151 in our book, we give tips for taking breaks, our blog address, and ask any of our book readers to let us know how they have used any tips in the book. We heard from MOPS' leaders about how A Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts helped them out in a pinch. Their story:
I hope you are doing well. Remember me from last year's Christmas Tea
in Upper Sandusky? Debbie and I were just talking about how it was
just a year ago that we held that...and how that day was so magical! Thank
you again for being a part of it.
A neat thing happened, yesterday was our Christmas MOPS meeting. We
were all set to have a friend, and pastor from Columbus, come up to
speak for our meeting. At the last minute she canceled, and I scrambled
and prayed to come up with something to fill her time. I came into my office
and opened up your Christmas book, to look for some ideas. So...I ended
up having each of my steering members read a page out of it, the stories
about the origins of different Christmas traditions, it was perfect! And,
to me it was like celebrating the anniversary of our Christmas Tea. So
I felt like I needed to thank you again!
I hope you and your family have a very Healthy and Blessed Christmas!
