Weekend Update and December Giveaway Winner

The winner of my December Giveaway is Joyfully Retired! 
Congratulations to Margot
(thanks to all who entered)

On a separate note, this weekend began Friday with unspeakable tragedy echoed around the world.  Our hearts ache for the people of Newtown, Connecticut personally affected.  

I felt especially blessed to be able to spend time with family and loved ones this weekend. For me, it was bittersweet celebrating my milestone birthday, and honestly, every birthday that follows I will think of those little ones and adult heroes who lost their lives because of this senseless act.


  1. Wishing you a happy belated birthday, Diane. Mine was on the 13th and I doubt I will ever forget the awful tragedy that followed at Sandy Hook the following day...

  2. Congrats to Margot! Happy belated birthday. This week certainly was heartbreaking.

  3. Happy Birthday my friend. Yes, such a sad, sad week and we send prayers to everyone dealing with the horrific event.

  4. Congratulations to the winners! I know just what you mean about this being a bittersweet time. I can't help but feel saddened and shocked about this whole situation in the midst of my Christmas planning.

  5. Terrible tragedy and has left the nation crying.

  6. Happy Birthday to you … though I'm sure you weren't in a celebratory mood. Hugs to you.

  7. Belated birthday wishes, Diane! My brother-in-law's birthday was Friday and it was hard to celebrate amidst such tragedy. So sad...
