With Gratitude

My hands are shaking as I sit on the floor in my office (don't ask) to write this post. If you follow me on twitter you already know that I worked until 2am on Friday morning so I could take the rest of the day off. We had a a wonderful time at the Christian Community Fair. Any time your kids can bounce in a bounce house (or six of them) without shelling out $5 per five minutes it's a good thing. They bounced for two hours - for FREE!

We got home late and after putting the kids to bed I didn't feel like being on the computer. Fourteen hours the day before was enough. So this morning as I was wading through my inbox it caught me off guard when I opened a message from Blurb about the contest. The winners are going to be announced on Wednesday so I figured it was a generic message saying thanks for participating. Imagine my surprise when I saw the words

Congratulations! You have qualified for the next round of judging in the Best Blurb Books Contest. The next round is a qualitative assessment by a panel of judges.

So with a huge smile on my face and gratitude in my heart I want to say thank you to everyone who put up with the emails, tweets, and posts supported my book during the contest.
A very very BIG thank you!
