My Grandma Peggy had such a wonderful way of love about her. She would make each of us feel like we were her favorite - and we all were of course. She was a warm embrace when you came in from the cold world, a wonderful source of encouragement when you faced challenges and her heart and home always a place of comfort and peace. All were welcome. All were loved.
Growing up I spent a lot of time with my Grandma Peggy and Grandad Blaine. They were both the most amazing people and both had a huge impact on my life.
As a child I used to suffer from earaches and my mom still tells the story of me in pain saying, "Grandma Peggy, do something!". My Grandma would hold me and say, "Oh, bless her heart..." It was her heartfelt way of saying I feel your pain, I understand. She would do the same when any of her grandchildren were sick, in pain or hurting in any way from life's bumps. She said it in love and with love.
Now I have since discovered that there is a part of the population who use this phrase in a different way. There are dozens of meme's out there depicting it. But my Grandma Peggy had love behind her blessing and that is how I want to use it as well.
In honor of her and the way she loved greatly, I am offering up this wood sign from Hobby Lobby as today's give-away. It is a wood block 6x6 square and 1.5 inches deep. It can be placed on a shelf or other surface or I am sure you could hang it as well.
To win today's give-away just comment here or on the blog Facebook page and tell me someone who is a blessing in your life. That's it! And be sure to stop back by tomorrow for day three of our celebration.
All winners will be posted this weekend.
Update: Day 2 give-away is now closed.
