Pin It

    Hello my friends,

   My giveaway is over and I (Rafflecopter) chose a winner!!

   But before I announce the winner I want to thank everyone who entered and who donated for our friends. With the combined efforts they could raise all the money they needed. I'm so happy for them!! There is still a long way ahead of them but at least their financial burden will be a little lighter. Thank you so much for your donations!

   And the winner of the hardcover book " "Crock-Pot Best-Loved Slow Cooker Recipes" is:

Entry #23 - Roxanne C.

   Congratulations!!! I sent you an e-mail about it too!

   And for a little inspiration today, I wanted to share a quote with you that my friend actually shared with me today:

   "It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

--Theodore Roosevelt

"Citizenship in a Republic,"
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910


Love it! Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!!

  3. Thanks for the quote of something that is very true. I am a very cautious person, so it's hard for me to get into the middle of things sometimes. However, I just gotta keep trying.

    Sometime, you can show us the new addition to your friend's family.
