Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Z is for Zodiac

Here we are on Z in the A-Z Blog Hop. I’m sad it’s the last one. I’ve enjoyed each and every letter. Today’s letter Z, for me, stands for Zodiac and I’m going to make it special by ending it with my first give-away! (For those of you who read yesterday’s post On The Receiving End I’m repeating the story and extending it with a give- away today so keep reading, and for those of you who didn’t read yesterday’s story, you might want to venture back to it and see why I wrote it in the first place!) 🙂

20140116-075852.jpg Not long ago I was reading a post in a blog I follow (My Bikram Yoga Life). Leigha Hall was talking about this necklace she found on Etsy. The name of the artist was Eternal Girl and she makes these gorgeous necklaces that can even be customized. I immediately fell in love and for $15 had to have one. I ordered this one with my Leo sign on it because I love being a Leo. Every characteristic I’ve ever read about Leos totally describes me, so what better way, for only $15, to make a fashion statement that speaks to who I am, than to wear my Leo sign.

The package came in a few days. It was a small envelope. When I opened it the artist provided a beautiful card in a tiny envelope with tissue paper accent. Next out came the necklace delicately wrapped in tissue paper. I remember how I felt opening the package. I was delighted with the care she took in presenting her work to me. I only paid $15 for it, but I felt I was opening something that was far more precious.

If you would like a chance to win an Eternal Girl necklace of your own, do two things:
1. Share this post on Facebook
2. Visit Eternal Girl and browse the designs, then post your favorite in the comments below.

Contest closes next Friday 1/31. One lucky winner will be chosen next Saturday, 2/1 to win the design of their choice, delivered to their home. This give-away is my way of saying thank you for reading and for all your loving support. Each and every one of you are dear to me and I can’t wait to see where our journey will take us as the days of 2014 begin to go by.

And so, as another day goes by, and the blog hop ends, hurry and get in on the fun – you may be the lucky winner, and…I have written.
