First, Happy Birthday to my daughter, Meghan! She is absolutely beautiful INSIDE as well as outside...and this is my favorite photo of her. Oh, dear me.
Meghan is an elementary school music teacher, loved by her 785 students who get to see this smile every week in Music. I love the way she just lights up a room with her kindness and sparkle. Come to think of it, I really need to tell you more about her this month! Ah, good timing for taking a Small Thing break so we can chat about my family. :)
Congratulations to Julia Reynolds for winning the Most Points in July! She managed to do every single Small Thing last month! Amazing. Julia will receive the One Year Membership to ListPlanIt and will enjoy using the amazing lists and tools this great site provides. Everything important will be right at her fingertips - and on her mobile devices! I know she is going to really enjoy it like I am.
The Random Drawing Winner is Jose McKenzie, and she will receive the art print, "Trust in the Lord!" I hope she will find a nice little spot for my favorite piece. :)
Ladies, send me your contact information and I'll get your prizes to you.
Let me just say a big thank you to everyone who participates with me here each month. I'm incredibly touched, knowing that every day there are hundreds of women who read my posts and are inspired to do just a little bit more than they thought they could. I'm convinced that we need one another to encourage us when we feel stretched thin by the challenges of life, and when it's hard to see any beauty in our circumstances. Your comments and emails keep ME going, and help me to look for joy in the tough spots, and remember to pause and reflect on the blessings. I appreciate the time you spend reading and talking with me - in this busy world, it's a huge compliment to be given someone's time. I never take that for granted!
You, my dear Company Girls, are loved. You are sweet, sweet, sweet...and I thank you for being part of my life!
Would you like a cup of coffee this morning? Or maybe a glass of sweet tea? Pull up a chair and link up for our weekly Company Girl Coffee klatch! It's simple and easy....just the way we like it. We've got some fantastic women with great hearts and I'd love for you to get to know each other better. Even if you don't link up, I hope you'll take a few minutes to pop in and say hello to these fine bloggers! Linker-iners, stop in at the blog just before yours in the list, so everyone gets visitors!
