Celebration, and a Contest

It’s been a helluva crappy year, and I’ve had neither reason nor energy to celebrate much of anything. However, after Friday’s pathology results — after I lifted the bricks off my shoulders, after I started breathing again, and after I had a few good night’s sleep — I realized I had to celebrate. Something. Anything. Because what is life about, if not to find a reason to celebrate everyday?

So I decided to give something away, as my way of saying “Thank You” to everyone who sent love and prayers during the difficult times. Pink ribbon jewelry (which I make) for breast cancer awareness. $40 worth, because today is my 40th wedding anniversary and it seems like as good a number as any.

One person will win the contest. To enter, leave a comment on this blog post (like “enter me.”) Contest ends 11:59 pm PST (or PDT — I can never remember which one we’re in) on September 30. Winner picked randomly and announced October 1.
