We have a winner!!!!!!!

Hello sweet ladies, 

Well guess what??????? WE have a WINNER of the Sandhill Plum Jelly! I always wonder what sweet friend it is going to be. We had 75 votes. I always use Random Generate and the number that it picked was 18! I always hurry and see what name that number goes with and it was 

Susan Montgomery 
(she doesn't have a blog), but she said:

My favorite jelly is wild plum. I would love to try yours :D Glad your first day was successful.

Love and hugs

I wonder what kind of wild plum she has. I will ask her.

First I have to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the fun that you left for me on blog and answering what kind of jelly or jams you liked. Some were very interesting!!!!!! It made my week go by fast!

Also thank you for the fun you also left today on my fb and blog.
It wasn't hard to be at work as much as I thought it would be. One reason was they put me out on the front line with my sweet man serving. I was his "helpmate" today. He was cooking hamburgers.....then I would take them and hand out the hamburger and dish out fries to the students so he could keep grilling. Some of our girls that we have had in our life since we started working there..... knew that it was our anniversary today. It started traveling around the caf. The kids made it fun for us! You were so very thoughtful though and that meant a lot to me!
When I got off work I looked at my emails......this was what I found. He had left a comment on my blog.

Happy Happy Anniversary!!!! To the two greatest people I personally know. Thanks for loving all of us kids and giving of yourselves. Thank you for showing us what it takes to make a marriage work in this day and age. I love you both so much and hope and pray that you both have 38 more wonderful years together. I know that the Lord will continue to bless because you have both been so faithful. Love you Mom and Dad

Your oldest Jason

You guessed it.......this Momma cried. This is our son that was in the picture of our wedding. Frosting on top of the cake. I told him when he called this morning that I was glad he was at our wedding.......he said, "me too". He has truly been a gift. He believes in "Life". I am blessed! 

 I can't believe that I have been at school for almost one week, went by so fast. Thankful!  Oh my, will Saturday ever be special. Waking up to the sunshine coming through our bedroom window, jumping out of bed and walking around the farm.....I will be HOME and it will be wonderful! Want to plant some fall lettuce and spinach. It will be nice to be in the garden. 

Hugs to you!!!!!!! You are such precious ladies, God knew I needed you in my life! You make me smile, laugh, cry, pray...and give Praise.......thank you,

    Ms.Linda I read your earlier post and went back to read the one you did in 2010 after reading it I scrolled down to see that I had left a post there too(KKJD) loved the sweet story then and now.
