Giveaway Thursday and Two Apologies

I have to apologize twice today. They'll be at the end of the post.

Check out these giveaways quickly- they all end this weekend.

Little Gray Pixel has a giveaway for a beautiful "Bird on a Wire" photo print. Very talented! Love the blog. Hurry- this one ends February 28th.

The Muddy Moose is giving away 2 gorgeous baskets of homemade soaps, lotions and massage oils. I'm ordering her beer soap. I'm intrigued!

All Together Beautiful is giving away a 10 0z. bag of Newman's Own French Roast Coffee, and a 4 pack of Newman's Own ginger mints. Yum!

Robyn's Online World is giving away Banana Nut Cheerios! I love Cheerios! She's throwing in bowls, a loaf pan and a fruit holder/basket too!

Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls is giving away 2 sets of note cards from Purple Lemon Designs. These are really pretty.

So I have to apologize for posting my Giveaway Thursdays on Friday. I got a call from my dad around 10:00 Thursday morning. Mom was asking for me. When I say asking, I mean she wrote down that she "WANT SUS" and dad asked her if she "wanted Susan". She shook her head yes, and he asked again, and she shook again. When he told her I was at work, and could she wait until tonight, she shook her head again. So he called me, and I left work early to go see her.

I posted about mom here. Since that post, she's become bedridden, and hasn't had any nourishment except for a few sips of water. Her tumors have grown so large that they're disfiguring her jaw. The nurse suggested I go over to see her every day, since she's entered the last stage of dying. When I go, I stroke her arms, legs and feet, because the contact soothes her. I say goodbye to her, not knowing if that will be the last time.

My second apology is to anyone I offended with my Wordless Wednesday post. I didn't tag the sign, just took a picture of this random sign in my neighborhood on a street where I don't even see children- heavy or otherwise. It wasn't meant to offend. MR and I crack up everytime we see it- I had to post it. So I'll apologize, but really- lighten up.

Thank you so much for your kind words and the link to my giveaway. On a more personal note, my thoughts are with you during this trying time. I know what you're going through. My mom died of cancer in May, and it was the most difficult thing I've ever had to endure. The best advice I can give is to cherish every second she's still here and be strong for your dad. Know you're not alone and you can always email me if you need to vent. (((hugs)))
