This was both easy and most difficult for me. You all deserve something, as I was touched by all of your responses. I will be sending you all personal responses via email, as some of you sent your comments in that way, but you all deserve at least that.
I found that the most compelling response was from someone asking, not for themselves but for someone else.
A friend of mine, Jenny, from Redhead Sadie asked not for herself but for another dear lady. When someone reaches out for someone else, I hope you would all agree that I would find that the most compelling. That is not to say that the rest of you lovely people didn't have compelling reasons.......my goodness, you all touched my heart, and it was extremely sweet to hear some of your stories via email.
The lady who has won will stay anonymous at this time, as she has had quite a difficult year. Should this wonderful lady decide to let me announce her name, I will delightfully do so as soon as possible.
I thank all of you, from the bottom of my heart, for letting me share a bit of your life. You have all blessed me and I shall be getting back to you all one on one.
