But the one that struck a chord with me {the most},
being a mom always striving to be the BEST mom,
and often not feeling quite up to par,
(don't we all from time to time?)
was this one:

ElsMom:

“There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one” Jill Churchill

LOVE it :)

A few others had the same or a similar quote, but this was from ElsMom was the first one of them I read, and I immediately loved it.

***

and the randomly picked winner is:

Heidi Jo:

oh my word...this is EXACTLY what i have been waiting for. i love my two necklaces, and wanted a bracelet next....but none could fit the wordiness of this WOMAN. or more accurately the size of my brood. i have five beautiful children, and this would be the most precious thing to me.

"The keepers of my heart:
NICHOLAS, OLIVIA, KATHARINE, ANDREW, ELIZABETH"

Please email us ElsMom and Heidi Jo!

Thank you to all that entered :)

The chunky message bracelets will be added to the site this weekend!
