Ding! Ding! Ding! We have winners

Dear Blogging Friends,



I want to say, "Thank you".



Thank you for taking the time to come over and read my thoughts, share my journey, offer your opinions and friendship. Your input and presence is sincerely appreciated.



This past Free Stuff Friday was all about revisions. I enjoyed reading comments from 25 fellow bloggers and thought, "we are so often more alike than we ever realize".



It was neat.



As promised, I put all the names into a hat (well, Tupperware bowl) and drew three names:



the official winners are:



Sarah

Yunaleska

Tricia O'Brien



Congrats to these three ladies who will get a $10 gift certificate to Amazon.com



BUT, I was so inspired by your honesty and have been so grateful for your presence here on this blog, I decided to expand the winners to



well, everyone.



All of the Friday commentors (ending with Joyce Wolfley) will receive a $5 gift certificate to Amazon.com



Really and truly!!!



If you shop their used book section, you can likely find a bargain and get it sent to you for w/in the $5.



It is an e mail gift cert, so contact me at tesshilmo(at)comcast(dot)net and I will send your gift certificate code (either $10 or $5 respectively) back to you.

It is a beautiful new week. Let's put on a smile and get to writing...

You are insanely generous! Hope you had a great weekend =)

Tess, you are quite possibly one of the most awesome people I know! Not only do you write amazingly well, you make insanely good bbq chicken, generously open your home to friends, and give away gifts. Your generosity will go far. *hugs*

And yes, I stick my foot in my mouth all the time. You just haven't known me long enough to see it...

I'm so tickled to have won, but I think you are even more awesome to give everybody gifties. What a beautiful person you are. I love visiting your blog.
Since you've been all about revisions, here is a neat quote on the subject from Sue Monk Kidd:
"I have always found a kind of elation in this tedium, because I feel that at any moment I might stumble upon something extraordinary."

Joyce Wolfley said...

Tess, you are always so generous. Of your time, experience, and money. Thank you for the gift.

Scott said...

Fine, fine, fine, the day I set aside not to blog or read blogs and you give gifts to everyone! I see how you are!!!

Kidding. I spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday totally away from the blogsphere. Now, I'm back full force and trying to catch up. SIGH!

Congrats to all the winners!

Sarah said...

Omigosh. Did I WIN? ...I'd like to thank God, my great-aunt Felicia... I looked through all the comments and I didn't see any other Sarahs but, er, please stop me before I embarrass myself.

I'm going to have to agree with everyone that you are, in fact, awesome. Thanks, Tess! :)
