I am still out of town and busy with my family, but I have been receiving the most marvelous entries for the writing contest that I am sponsoring that I wanted to share with you. I encourage you to take the time to read these submissions. Each one tells of an epiphany on motherhood. Each is uplifting and genuine and teaches an important principle. And because they rescued my contest from being a dismal failure, I adore each and every one of them!:)
As I extended the date for submissions, you have until this Wednesday (July 15th) at 11:59 pm PDT to join the fun. Every contributor will receive a copy of my CD cookbook, which holds some original recipes, some old favorites that I've found other places, and basically the recipes that I consider to be my standbys-- those that I turn to time and again, year after year. So if you haven't yet, jump on board and tell us about an Ah-ha Moment that you've had on motherhood.
Here are the submissions so far, in no particular order:
My Ice Cream Diary, with "Ah-Ha!"
Terrors in Tiaras with "Different is Great"
Finding the Happy in Today with "One of the many Ah-ha Moments"
Wonder Years with "Little Drops of Water"
An Ordinary Mom with "The Duck Pond: A Lesson About Living in the Moment"
Life is Not a Final with "Ah-ha!"
Note to Self with "Out of Small Things"
Howe Thoughts with "I Really Don't Know How To Tie This One"
My Many Colored Days with "A-ha"
A Mother Heart with "There Are Angels Among Us"
The Spices of Life with "A Wonder Woman's Bad Day Turned Right"
Happy Reading! And don't give up on me. I'll be back from vacation soon with lots of posts. I promise.
