Have Mercy: Giveaway!!!

this is me, in a field of corn. long story.
Hello friends!
Here I sit, Sunday night, the eve of Zach's last week of "real" work before our crazy fun travels begin... and then our permanent travel to our new town. My melatonin is about to kick in so I'd better make this fast...

To celebrate the start of the actual "travel" part of my blog title, I want to do a little giveaway! So many people have been incredible to us over the past few years, showering us with mercy that we rarely deserved. In honor of all of you who have helped us along the way, whether I know you in "real life" or simply through to internet, I thought it would be fun to do a pay-it-forward giveaway. I don't have much... but I do have a $25 gift card to TARGET. If you win, I would love for you to give it to a family or an organization in need in your community. I know it's not very much, but even $25 could brighten someone's day! I would double love it if you blogged about your pay-it-forward moment, or if you don't have a blog, you could email me an entry and we could feature the post here.

To Enter: Leave me a comment, tell me who you are, why you like this little slice of the internet! I would really like to know who my readers are, as well as give mercy to someone in need! I need to limit the entries to people living on this continent of North America, because, frankly, I have no idea where other Target stores are. BUT, if you live somewhere else, would you please introduce yourself anyway? Thanks! At the end of the week I'll put names in a hat and pull one out and announce the winner.

Please please say hello and leave a comment! I'm feeling lonely on this little blog, and would seriously LOOOOOVE to give away this Target card. Don't be shy! Thanks friends!!!

  1. Very cool and generous giveaway! I'm a girl from Mayberry, who moved to Winston and met you first at church and ran into you again at our awesome arts-based elementary. I love your blog, how honest and "real" you are. It inspired me to start my own. Your entire family will be missed like crazy cakes! (as my five-year-old says).

  2. The biggest reason I like your blog is that even though you are dealing with whatever life throws your way you always make time for others- their feeling, needs, desires and you give others a voice. You make me laugh. As you and your family embark on a new journey I know that you will continue to spread mercy and joy to others you meet along the way. I will miss you.

  13. I read your blog because I love how you write. I stumbled across it years ago (before you brought Sam home and right after we brought my R home) and haven't stopped reading it (them, whatever!!) since.
