Goin’ to the Post Office today (you have to sing the title like, “Goin to the chapel . . . )
I’m so HAPPY today because I’m going to the Post Office. Yes, I know it’s rather strange to be happy about that. The postal workers (at least the ones where I live, in Dallas) seem to be so cheerful, always eager to help, and they NEVER, I repeat NEVER roll their eyes; say “I’m on break;” or look at you like you’re an idiot if you don’t follow the “new and improved” rules as it relates to Post Office etiquette. Somehow I always get it wrong (that should be no surprise), but today none of that matters, because I get to announce THE WINNER of our week-long (plus a bit more) contest for the beautiful Christmas décor from MERRY GARDENS in ATHENS, TEXAS. Thanks again to Mrs. Susie House Hurley for her generosity! This contest was slightly different, as I explained in my posts.
I want to recognize those of you who were up to spreading the word and also those whom I hope will join our small but growing community, because of your seek and find efforts.
Kim took a leap of faith and poked her head out to tell us she is here with us and follow the blog!
Barb brought Sandy out of silence and into a friendship!
Paula brought us Lynn who has had a few partials and is thinking about turning towards our community for more information.
Mesh Tears – for taking a huge leap of faith and bringing herself out of isolation for a conversation about what matters to her and for offering her perspective.
Aaron (me) – I brought Jamie, a woman whose sister I previously worked with, and who had never heard of any complications from the mesh (Of course, I’m not eligible to win!).
So our participants each have a 25% chance of winning. Also, I’d like to tell you that I no longer use the patent-pending Mesh Warrior Method for our drawings, since there are so many of you now. I’ve had to employ the help of my husband: the able-handed, brilliant, handsome, equal brawn AND brains, and highly-capable mathematician. He is somehow half MacGyver and half Hot Geek. So I now use a spreadsheet he created so that the selection is ALWAYS random!
Using Hubby’s McGeeker Spreadsheet, the WINNER is . . . PAULA!! Congratulations!!
Please send me the physical address where you would like your GIFTaway sent, and I will include you in my post office run today!
HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE! AND THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING IN OUR SHARED CAUSE!
Hoping and Helping for HEALING!
Your Mesh Warrior
