Give Oh Give Away
I went to a home for disabled adults yesterday. It was a humbling experience and one I wish I could repeat everyday. I got assigned to a sweet little man named Nielson. He couldn't speak and hardly moved, but I fell in love with his amazing spirit. His hands and legs where withered and he struggled to move. We got to sing quite a few songs together. Many of you know that I've been a singer for a few years. I loved how he responded to music. His face would light up and his eyes would roll around like he was trying to sing. The only sound he could make was a kind of gurgle, but I could tell he was really happy. We got to one of my favorite songs called "Give Said the Little Stream". He started smiling and the look he had was absolute joy. It filled my heart. I know that he gave something wonderful to me. He gave me gratitude. So, in honor of Nielson, I wanted to show my gratitude to all of my sweet readers who fill my heart with joy as well. I hope you all know what a pleasure it is for me to hear from you. This week I want to have a give away. I will be sending 4 spice blends out at the end of the week to 4 different readers ( Chef Tess Bakeresse Etsy ). If you would like to participate in the give away, just leave me a little comment telling me what you would like to see more of on my blog or just share your love. That is always appreciated. Then you'll need to send me an email with your personal email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please do not put your email address in your comment on the blog, as I would like to publish every one's words and I don't share email addresses. I will only use it for the contest (so don't worry about getting a ton of newsletters or something.) Have a wonderful week.
