Announcing The Winner Of My Birthday Blog Candy Giveaway.. Finally...

Before I announce the winner of my birthday blog candy giveaway I want to sincerely apologize to each and every one of my blog readers and followers for not announcing the winner sooner. Things have been literally crazy for me lately, and on top of that I am fighting a bladder infection so I am not feeling that well. So I am really really sorry that it took me this long to announce the winner to you all. I know you all have waited so very patiently and I appreciate that so very much.
My next giveaway I will announce the winner when I promise to. I really feel terrible for being so late. I hope you are all not to upset at me and will accept my apology.

Now.. to announce the winner of my blog candy..this is what the winner is getting..Everything in this picture and it's alot!
Not everything is shown so there is a bit more!

Here we go the winner of my blog candy is.....
Kathy from Scrap N Daze

Just a few words about Kathy.. she is a nurse and I believe that nurses are like very special angels that live on earth. They do SO SO much to help us when we are sick and they really don't get much credit for all that they do. Nurses and teachers are very special to me and I really appreciate all of the hard work, the very hard work that they do to help us when we need them. I want to take this time to acknowledge Kathy and all of you nurses out there for ALL of your hard work that it takes being a nurse. It takes a special person to be a nurse and thank you for all of the time you have spent with your patients and their families. I am sure you have touched many lives during your career!

When I had my tmj total joint replacement surgery I had many complications during surgery and after. Unknowingly straight after surgery I ended up in the ICU for 4 days intubated and sedated. I had really special nurses that let my husband be by my side pretty much the whole 4 days. Then after they woke me up I had to stay in the hospital for 6 additional days. I remember this one nurse who was so amazing and so super sweet to me. I don't know why but I wanted my hair washed SO badly and despite the fact that I was so badly swollen and was under very very strong pain medications she took the time to wash my hair while I was confined to my bed. I have a picture of her washing my hair and it is and was so very sweet of her to do that for me. That surgery in itself was so traumatic for me and I suffer from chronic pain on my jaw and face and my pain will never go away. But that sweet nurse was willing to do anything to help me feel better. I will never forget that moment and how much I appreciated her kindness. To me she went over and beyond the call of duty. You know, I just thought of this... I am going to try and find out who she was so I can send her a card and let her know how much I appreciated that moment and how much she helped me in one of the most traumatic times in my life. have inspired me to find her so Thank You for that!!

If you are not familiar with Kathy's blog PLEASE hop on over to Scrap N Daze and let her know that Two Pink Peas sent you. She has some ADORABLE mini albums, and I mean
ah-dor-able. Kathy has several different themes of them on her blog and they are just precious. Like me she also loves photography, so I hope to make a new blogging friend in her. She really seems like an amazingly sweet, caring and loving person and I am so happy for her.

Congratulations Kathy!! I will email you but if you see this post before you get my email please email me your name and address to Terrico3 at ameritech dot net. 

By the way, Kathy did just about everything she could in order to get those extra chances and I am really HAPPY for her. I will be doing another giveaway soon so you will have another chance to win something from Two Pink Peas. As soon as I get over my bladder infection and start to feel better I will post a new giveaway.

I hope that you all know that I really *Wish* that I could give each and every one of you a prize who enter in my giveaway's. Obviously since I can't do that, the next best thing that I can do is to keep having more blog candy giveaway's for you all. Thank you to ALL of you who took the time to enter. I appreciate each and every one of you and I hope you will enter in my upcoming giveaway's. Please know how much I appreciate you!!
Again, Congratulations Kathy!! Enjoy all of your new goodies!!!
