I loved reading everyone's entries for the bracelet!
It was such a hard decision, there were SO MANY amazing ones!
I had LOTS of favorites, here are just a few...

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beuty of their dreams." Elleanor Roosevelt
(so inspiring!)


"Some People Only Dream of Angels. I held one in my Arms"
In Loving Memory
Anna Kiara
(tugged at my heartstrings!)


A Write Life:
The Impossible Dream
Is Only An Opinion.


"From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another." John 1:16
(great scripture!)


If I were to win this bracelet, I would have things my sons have said while growing up that make me laugh every time I think about them.
Santa Closet ( Santa Claus), Hammerhead Lincoln (Abraham Lincoln), random things that like.
(I love inside jokes like this!)


"Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.” ~Albert Einstein
(so inspiring!)


i would put 'shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars' -anonymous
(just love it.)


'I love you a bushel
and a peck
and a hug around the neck.'
(my mom used to sing this to me!)



"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." Robert Brault
(a great reminder!)



Distance between two hearts is not an obstacle, rather a beautiful reminder of just how strong true love can be.

-By the grace of God & one red light~

Chris & Trish
Aug 12, 1995

We met while we were both stopped at a red light while on vacation in Myrtle Beach. He lived in Georgia and I lived in Kentucky. Four months later he proposed and we have been together ever since.
(what a great story!)


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:


“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:

"The keepers of my heart:
