A Thank You.....

Christmas is one day closer.

My friend Reema did a special thing on her blog ( and I really liked it. She put out a request to her readers to mail her a Christmas card and she would put all the cards in a drawing for a gift certificate to Starbucks. Her Christmas gift to her readers. She said there was only one gift certificate, but everyone who sent a card would get something.... I wanted to copy her, but realized I had a problem. Reema had a business address she could publish for the cards to be mailed to, but I don't have such a thing. It is not safe to publicly publish a resident address, so I've been racking my brain to see if I could come up with a feasible alternative.

I do believe I have been successful!

Here goes......

Thank you to my readers..... to my followers and those who come on anonymously.... Thank you for your comments and support.... I also have a Christmas gift for you. I will give away one $25 gift card to Target (can be used in store or online) to a reader whose name will be drawn on Christmas Eve. All you have to do is leave a comment of at least 6 words after one of my posts. For each day you leave a new and original comment, (no repeating the same thing over & over please) I will enter your name in a drawing. One entry per day, but you are welcome to leave as many comments as you like. Comments are moderated, so please be appropriate. Anonymous readers can remain anonymous on the blog, but you will have to let me know who you are to get your name in the drawing.

If you are anonymous, and would like to enter the drawing, send me an email with your name and a copy of your comment so I can enter you in the drawing (

You may also leave your mailing address so I can send you a Christmas card if you like. I will need the mailing address of the winner to deliver the gift card. All who give me their address will receive a card from me.

It is my goal to be more consistent at posting every day, but I may miss a few. Life does get busy, especially around the Holidays. Fell free to catch up on the archived posts & comment there. I will see all comments, no matter which post they are attached to.

Thank you again for your support and encouragement.

Merry Christmas!!!

God Bless You and Yours in the coming year.



  1. Yah Sandy! Great idea!!! Isn't it exciting to see who will do so? I love Target!... I also love your blog. What happened with the ex reading your blog, by the way?

  2. He got mad at my reference to "unfaithful jerks", said I was calling all sex-addicts jerks, which I was not. I know some recovering sex-addicts who, because they are out of their addictions now, are not jerks at all. They are nice guys who have a serious problem that they have to work on constantly to keep it at bay... and they do... He did get over it after a few days... Otherwise he said he liked my writing. I told him I want to be able to vent without concern of stepping on toes. I think he will stay away now. I could tell him to not read it and I think he won't, but I would rather let him decide to make the right decision on his own. Geeze, I sound like a parent lol. I did sorta tell him to not read it... he apologized for upsetting me about it... If it wasn't for his addiction he would have made a good husband.

  3. How sad for him to lose you. :( Is he still recovering? Maybe that is a dumb question as I suppose it is a life long journey. eh?

    Well good for you.

  4. It is a lifelong thing... but I fully believe that with God's help it doesn't have to remain a struggle.

    He doesn't attend a 12-step group and isn't in counseling, so I would say he is struggling with it the hard way, but he says he is being good now and he has no reason to lie to me now.

    He has taken responsibility for what he put me through, which was a huge step. He has apologized many, many times.
