May's Giveaway Beach Daisy Limited Edition Soy Candle

May has two holidays close to my heart: Mother's Day and Memorial Day! As most of you know, if you keep up with my blog - I lost my mom a few years ago to lung cancer (see post below) so Mother's Day is a bitter sweet holiday for me. Bitter sweet because I miss my mom terribly, but at the same time I am a mom with all the joy and love that comes with that.

Memorial Day is a time to remember all our heroes that have gone on before us and those who are still out there fighting this crazy war. It seems to me that as this phase of the war winds down and we don't hear about it in the headlines continually that we don't think of those still over there as often and the sacrifices they make on a daily basis for us to live free.

So, I dedicate this giveaway to our moms and our heroes. Thank you for all that you do for us.

To enter to win this cute Beach Daisy Limited Edition Soy Candle -simply leave me a comment about your mom telling me what you love most about them and say a special thank you to all our heroes (or the one special to your heart).

My mom is still "Mom." She'll tell me like it is because she loves me and wants the best for me now at 47, just as she did when I was 7 and 17...I have never doubted that. She's also very loving and playfully silly.

Hats off to those in the military who serve out of a love for country, duty, and honor. They are those who stand in the gap for us, even if things aren't as clear or "right" as they should be... because love of country, duty, and honor are not wrong.

My mom is my biggest cheerleader. She always tell me I can do anything I can put my mind too.

I'm grateful for the military men and women who have given me my freedoms. My aunt and grandpa were both service people and I'm so proud of them.

My mom is not just my mom - she's also my best friend.

Since my daughter-in-law is in the
USAF, I think of the young men and women in our military often.

G-d bless Moms and those who serve.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms ot there. My mother, was my mother, and because of that I am what I am. It is because of her I am the strong, independent survivor that I turned out to be. For that I thank her. Thank you for the great giveaway and your generosity.

Thanks to my mom and mother-in-law, we've never had to leave our children with babysitters. They're always there for us and ready to pass along the same life lessons they taught their children to their grandchildren.

A special thank you to all those in the service and to their families for all they do for our country.
