Pleasant Unexpected Surprise

I know, I know. I am grounded and not supposed to be here yet. "Because I'm the mommy, that's why!" Well, I have to check my email every night so that I don't miss an appointment or make someone mad at me. Last night I received a very pleasant surprise. I was picked as 2nd runner up to the winning entry of Scribbit's Write-Away contest this month. I'm very happy and a bit embarrassed. I whipped my entry out in 20 minutes in order to make the deadline and right after sending it I of course found many mistakes. And to think I'm always telling my brother to read, reread, have someone else read, and then someone else, and then read it again yourself before you consider any written assignment to be done. Ah well, too late now. Thank you, Melissa, for overlooking my mistakes and for liking my entry enough to notice it. Thank you, Scribbit , for holding such a wonderful contest and for giving me this button to add to my sidebar (I know I've been given the button before but I was too new to blogging to understand how to put it in my sidebar).
Now, I'm going to turn off the computer and get back to my grounding before the kids see me. I don't want to give them any ammunition for the next time they are grounded. =)

Our dream is a world filled with light. Our goal is a place without shadow. The detours are endless, the pain is always there, but the hope, the adventure, and the possibilities are the reward.
