I just realized that I now have over 50 followers! I am shocked; I am flattered; I am (almost) speechless. I started this blog as a way to record my feelings after losing Addie. Writing comes so easily to me and always has been the most therapeutic activity I do. I knew I NEEDED to do this, not just wanted to. When I began I never imagined the amount of people I would meet and would touch my life. I have found strength, not only within my family and friends, but also in the women I have met online. Although we have never met in real life, I feel as though I know each of you better than some of my "real world" friends. We all certainly share one huge thing in common...the club no one ever wants to join, but are thankful we have found each other. I share in the triumphs and losses of women I've never met. You all inspire me; you comfort me; you support me. I am so thankful to have all of you in my life.
So this brings me to my giveaway. Somehow I ended up purchasing 2 of the same Willow Tree statues, so I would like to offer one to another BLM. This is the Willow Tree "Angel of Freedom" statue. Its absolutely gorgeous. I bought it because the angel is holding a butterfly. I have often thought of Addison as a butterfly, especially after she passed away. The first time I felt her move, it felt like fluttering wings. I even wrote a poem called "The Path" featuring a butterfly. Then, of course, I was so happy with her butterfly footprints. She will always be my little butterfly. Anyway, sorry about the rambling. Here are a few pics of the statue.
So, if you are interested, please leave me a comment on this post. I want to show my appreciation to all of you out there, who take the time to read a little about my life and share in the journey of this baby lost momma. You really have no idea how much it means to me. I will announce the winner Friday evening after 5pm eastern time. Good luck to everyone and thank you again!!!
