I Think I'm Supposed to Write

I enter countless giveaways. I've started following people just for the chance to win, clicked on things, jumped through hoops figuratively several times. The giveaways are just so great and I want to win so badly. I finally decided to just enter giveaways on the blogs I read regularly because I was spending way too much time trying to win things.

The two giveaways I've actually been blessed to win, both have to do with sending a written note to someone. First I won lovely notecards from Marcia. Today, I found out I won beautiful postcards from a talented artist, Becky Kelly.

 I think this means I need to push the keyboard aside, and pick up a pen....

I often wish I'd been given the kind of talent Becky has, but God chose to give me other gifts. A different kind of art talent. He knows what He's doing, but I have to admit, sometimes I don't agree with His choices. That is human nature I suppose, but I AM glad He gave me some talent.  Becky's watercolors are so sweet and colorful. I have to confess that I am a sinner in my envy.

Anyway, I am very thankful I won!!! And I hope you will take a look at her blog and see her wonderful work. Thanks to Becky, and to Marcia for brightening my days with their "art".

Congratulations on your win! I could use some of those cards "write" now, because I have several cards I need to write to students. Guess I'll go out and buy some!

I did write a letter today. I am not good about this kind of thing but you said to write cards...and I had none on hand that were appropriate for this occasion (I do have Marcia's on hand though that I use very often!); so I used some old Precious Moments stationary. I was so proud of myself!
