Happy Monday, guys! I have a heavy heart today -- I've been thinking about what happened in Newtown, Connecticut all weekend -- and I feel a little strange focusing on things like iPhone 5 cases, but I promised to announce the giveaway winners this morning, so I've gotta stick to my word.
I wrote everybody's names out on some slips of paper, along with which case they hoped to win:
And out of that pile came these 10 names:
Congrats to the winners!
If you are Dd (#1), Emily (#2), Crystal Short (#3), Laura Gaffke (#4), Christina Seitz (#5), Rehab Ba-amer (#6), Jodi Crane (#7), Erin Donahue (#8), Andrea (#9), or Lindy Gaskill (#10), please email me your address and I'll get your iPhone 5 case sent out to you straightaway!
In this season of family, happiness, light, and celebration, I hope that we can all spend some time sending some love and light to those who's lives have been broken into pieces and are hurting in Newtown, CT and beyond. Let's send some love and light to everyone in the world who's in pain, to everyone who's in desperate need of mental help, to everyone who is struggling. Let's let our Christmas lights be a reminder to hold the families and people who are in pain in our hearts, in hopes that they will feel our healing love and find a small bit of comfort in it. Let's send love and light to our world and our planet and out to the whole universe. Let's beam it out and shine it into the darkness, intending to transform it into goodness and compassion.
This is my wish for the holiday season.
