Thank You and The Winner Is...

First I want to thank everyone who entered my giveaways!   I also want to thank all my old blogger followers and am anxious to get to know my new ones.
I have the utmost respect for our military forces!!  My Dad was a Marine in World War II where he lost his kneecap.  My brother, Johnny, was in the army and spent one year in Korea during non war.  My brother, Terry, served in the Marines and won the championship at boxing, where he got both jaws broken and continued boxing.LOL  Not too smart but he knew he was winning and wanted that trophy!!  My brother, Buster, was in the Army and served in Viet Nam.  I still get enraged when I think about the way these boys were treated when they came home.  I told him in my opinion he survived that war and that made him a HERO in my book!!  My youngest brother was in the Air Guards and served as a Medic in Desert Storm.
So you can see why honoring the military is so important to me.  I understand the fears and tears of those who have soldiers fighting in this war and it breaks my heart every time someone is killed during this war.
I pray for our soldiers daily and teach our children at church the importance of honoring our soldiers.  So THANK YOU to all our soldiers and families!!!
Now I know you are tired of my rambling.LOL  I wish I could give everyone who entered a mouse but I just can't.  But I will be having another giveaway for fall so be sure and  enter.  So without further delay, I used random generator to draw the names of both giveaways and I still do not know how to save the box so I just have to tell you the winners.  The number of the Military Giveaway was 32, Ms. Laura.  The winning number of the regular giveaway was 30, Barb from Barb's Heartstrokes.
So Laura and Barb, please send me your address to valerie999@comcast.net and I will get your gifts in the mail.  Remember there will be a surprise gift included!
I hope everyone has a great week and stay cool!!!  Until next time...

I am SO excited! I don't usually win too much! lol I am so honored to accept the military give-a-way, and want to send a shout out to my wonderful husband, who served in the Air Force for four years...We served in time of peace, and I know what our sacrifices were to serve, so I can only imagine the sacrifices made by those who have dedicated their entire lives, and who have served in times of war. "All gave some...Some gave all". I am thankful my husband had the desire to serve his country, and for those who continue to give! Very awesome give-a-way! I will email you my address...Can't wait! Thanks you! (Congratulations Barb too :)

Well Valerie I was half asleep here avoiding the remodeling job we are doing and came upon my name as a winner! Now I am wide awake and so excited to be the WINNER!!
As you know my Husband served for over 20 years and I was "lucky" enough to be a military single parent for quite sometime. It is a hard way of life. I am just grateful we survived those years and learned to be stronger together through those times.
Congratulations to Laura too!
But especially Thank You for such a fabulous giveaway!!
I will send you my address!
Barb
