Humbled and Full of Gratitude For all My New Friends

WOW is all I can say.

I have never loved a party so much. I have been blogging for only six weeks. In my original blog party post, I had over 125 comments and in my giveaway post there were more than 275.

I am AMAZED and so grateful. I have made so many new friends. I printed out every comment and in the coming weeks I plan to visit every blog and get to know you better.

The "Card Box" comments were so touching that I wish I could send everyone of you a box. Maybe it will inspire you to drop a card in the mail to just that person that needs to be encouraged. Now for the good news!
I am going to give a "card box" away every month. On the last day of the month, every comment made on my blog that month, whether I post once or five times will be in the drawing.
I will let a different grandson draw every month.
The next drawing will be the last day of April.

Come back often and check the blog as I get back to introducing the rest of my family. Hopefully, that will be next week. I have spent a tad too much time on the internet this past week, but loved every minute of getting to know you. OK....the winners of the 2 Deluxe Card Boxes are
Chocolate Covered Daydreams
Jessica at Naturallyknitty
Please email me with your address so I can get them shipped next week. I pray that every card will go to just the right person, at just the right time and bring many smiles!
Have a wonderful week,
Teresa

Teresa, I can't tell you how much this means to me. My card box will be used to reach out so many, many times and to so many people.

I will pray that God will show me those that He lays on my heart as well to send a card to and I promise you this, I will be obedient!!

Thank you again!

Hi Teresa,
I came over to visit from Angie's Knightly News. The card box is beautiful and I really enjoyed reading some of your posts!

You are a special lady...I look forward to getting to know you better.

Be blessed with joy...

I can't believe you've only been blogging for six weeks. I think you're a natural born blogger! You must be a relationship person. Keep it up; I'll be back.

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

WOW! you certainly are off to a great start. I cant imagine getting 275 comments on anything! I look forward to visiting again!

I have been blogging for a bit over a year and have found it to be one of the most fun and rewarding thing I have ever done. Not to mention that it really stretches me to peruse writing in a mote consistent way.

Looking forward to more!
Blessings
Robin

Teresa, What a way to start! Exciting. I noticed your comment over at Linda's about 30 x 5 and stopped by to say "glad you're on board." You already have this quote in action:
There is no better exercise for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
