Thank you!

If you took the time to have a look at my contest entry and leave a comment, thank you so much. I know it may seem kind of's just $100 and I plan to give it away anyway if I win.

But, you know, I've been a stay at home mom for a decade. Not a whole lot of opportunities for us to have our "work" recognized by other people present themselves day to day. Sometimes, I like to be reminded that I can do things besides wipe noses, correct behaviors, clean up messes, cook meals and teach fractions. (Don't get me wrong, I enjoy each of those and find them greatly worthwhile...except for the one that involves snot, but it must be done too.)

The fruit produced by motherhood becomes visible to us very slowly over weeks and months and years of labor. It's nice to see results from the work of our hands more quickly from time to time.

I am the kind of person that always has words, sentences, stories, both true and fiction floating around in my mind, filling the spaces, urging me to bring them to life somewhere. I scribble down thoughts on scraps of paper all over the place, thinking maybe one day I will have the chance to formulate them into something worth sharing.

I don't know if anything will ever come of all those pieces of paper, but this contest was certainly a fun challenge for me.

So, again, I say thank you.

I hope you find me a supportive friend in your endeavors.

Hi Tisha,
Could I get your email address? I already have annoying and pesky questions about the validation!
