My Secret Blog Giveaway--And The Winner Is . . .

I read The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch and one of the bits of advice he gave is that when someone does something nice for you, you should do it for someone else. I was so surprised and happy when I found out a while back that I won a set of Snoopy towels in a free blog giveaway that Mountain Woman did that I thought I would have one too and hopefully make someone's day a bit brighter. So, for Valentine's Day this year I decided to show my top commenter during the past year some appreciation by sending her an autographed copy of my book.

I visit this person's blog regularly and is one of the first bloggers that I "met" through Entrecard. The winner is Jude at "Mature But Not Senile." She left me 20 comments over the year which was the most by any one person. Runners up were Homestay Mama at Amazing Journey, Amazing Grace (16) and Sandee at Comedy Plus (15).

To find out more about my book and why I wrote it, read the Foreword here.

I haven't read that book, but I was very inspired by him and his message. He was a very courageous man.

I'm trying to catch up with my blog reading today after an extremely busy weekend. What a surprise to find I was a a runner up in your secret blog giveaway! Thanks for the link to my blog! I don't always leave comments. Not that I don't have anything to say, but mostly because it is usually quite late when I finally have a chance to read my favorite blogs and then I don't always have time to comment.

For example, it is already 1:00 am right now and I really need to be in bed! But I'm not quite finished catching up on my blog reading! What a dilemma!
