Hello there my primitive pals....First off, let me apologize for not posting the winners just after midnight last night as promised. Truth be told, a miracle took place in my house and I was just unable to tally, cut , sort and draw the winners because....drum roll please...I FELL ASLEEP at 11:30 and slept till....wait for it NOON today !!! As many of you know I battle with insomnia due to the ongoing effects of my battle with West Nile w/encephalitis....Falling asleep easily is just unheard of in my world. Falling asleep is WORK for me. I get sleepy sure, but actual sleep eludes me most of the time and I survive on about 4 hours a night (at best) and sometimes go for days with no sleep at all. Well, I had been watching the news at 11, propped up with  all my pillows with my computer beside me on the floor , laying in wait for me to take action on my blog giveaway....Much to my suprise my husband gently woke me at 4:30 am and said "Honey, let me move your pillows so you can lay fell asleep." He then kissed me , moved my pillows and off I was in slumberland again. Folks, this is a miracle !!!! Even the fact that he gently woke me to move my pillows would normally wake me and I would be AWAKE, wide AWAKE till the next evening.  So, as sorry as I am for possibly disappointing any of you who stayed up to see won, I myself am elated. Now, this miracle has happened in the past from time to time (a  few times a year at most)...usually followed by DAYS with NO SLEEP at all so I am asking all of you to PLEASE pray for me today and tonight..that I might sleep doesnt even need to be a night like last night...just some amount of sleep instead of not sleeping at all for days.

OK...enough about me...on to the winners . Oh, but first can I say thank you to all of you wonderful gals...You are just so great and encouraging and add so much richness to my life. I have more to say on this matter, but I will make that a different post.
