A Winner

There is a winner on this cold Autumn day.
The winner is each of us that takes the time to notice the small things.
A winner is someone that says "thank you" each day for the beauty of the day.
A winner is someone that can smile during times of struggle,
take a deep breathe, and accept the rose that is slightly tattered but still shining in beauty.
For we all are winners when we have a song in our heart
and dance to the unheard music.

But for today I must announce the give-away winner mentioned on Tuesday.
One special winner, drawn by my live-in gardener from the red bowl.
The winner is :  Angela from Tea with Friends
Congratulations to you!  Your gift will soon be in the mail.

Happy weekend, dear friends!
If you don't see your comments posted right away
it is because I have stepped away from my computer for a little play time.
I will return to visit with you on Monday.

You deserve 'play time' dear friend. Hopefully it will warm up so you can at least dip your toes!!!

Congrats to Angela - she will be smiling.
