{wow me} wednesday #75

Welcome to  {wow me} wednesday!



So glad YOU are here!

I can’t believe Halloween is almost here!

Last week I got to go with my daughter’s
kindergarten class to the pumpkin patch!
It was 39 degrees, & the wind was blooooooowing! 
Seriously the coldest I’ve ever been!
We did manage to have a good time even in the brrrrrr cold!

The 25 Days of Christ {25 stories & ornaments} review & giveaway

Today I’d love to introduce you to The 25 Days of Christ.

The 25 Days of Christ kit comes with everything you need
to make 25 ornaments for each day leading up to Christmas Day.
It also comes with a book with stories & scriptures to go along with each ornament.

Sometimes in the hustle & bustle of the holiday season
it’s hard to remember the true meaning of the season~ the birth of Christ.
This kit makes it easier to put Christ back into your Christmas traditions.

Heather from The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog {guest blogger}

Today it is an honor to share my blog with Heather from The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog.  Heather helps raise awareness about mesothelioma ~a type of cancer that she was diagnosed with a few months after her daughter was born in 2005, and she is now a 6 year cancer survivor.  She is a beacon of hope for others that have this disease. I loved this quote from their site ~As awareness builds, so does HOPE. So today it’s my hope you that you will be touched as you learn a little bit more about Heather, this type of cancer & her amazing story.  So here she is….meet Heather.

I had just heard the three words that would surely strike fear into anyone’s core — “You have cancer.”
