Marathon! October Winner! November Give A Way!

November Give Away

Hello everyone and thanks to all my followers for leaving comments and reading my blog.  You are the best of the best helping me keep my self- respect! I know my minis are not the best in the world, but, as a cancer survivor, a lovely quote  from Sharon Olds is inspirational:  "Writing or making anything—a poem, a bird feeder, a chocolate cake—has self-respect in it. You're working. You're trying. You're not lying down on the ground, having given up."                                                                               You are my motivation for posting and offering give a ways.   See details below on how to win this fabulous 1 inch scale dress from my Jared Collection.  It is made on a hanger (cannot be worn by doll) from gorgeous paper backed fabric.  How did I create this tiny beauty?  According to Martha Beck's quote below this is how:  
"In the moments I get it right, every step I take seems to be matched by a universal mystery, which obligingly, incredibly, creates what I can't."      

Favorite Daughter & Hubby
My favorite daughter never gave up as she finished her very first half marathon (13.1 miles)!  The same marathon I was training for two years ago and never finished due to health issues.  October being National Breast Cancer Month, I know she crossed that finish line for me and a ton of survivors, grinning like she had found a healthy cure for the whole world to be the best it can be and especially for hubby and their boys.

October Is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

My "girls" are doing fine this October!
Have you scheduled your appointment yet?  Thank God for my October results:

 "We are pleased to inform you that there is no evidence of breast cancer on your recent Mammogram and/or Ultrasound." 

For 12 years after surgery to remove the cancer, I've  done some serious praying to God to let me get through another year without evidence in my "girls". Therefore, I say to you,  get tested and:
                                  "Pray continually."
