"It is in giving that we receive"

This quote by St. Francis of Assisi has always rung true to my heart. This Christmas (Merry Christmas Eve by the way!!!) I have the special honor of awarding a deserving family a great reward. I posted a week ago about the Giving Is Awesome event that I am participating in and I have to say that I have been blown away by the nominations and the families who prove that there are heroes walking among us. Every family nominated deserves a spectacular holiday and I hope 2009 brings them the peace, light and hope that they all deserve.

The winner of my Giving Is Awesome event is an amazing family, fighting a brave battle (commonly known as cancer) and still staying warm, compassionate, loving and kind every step of the way. I am honored to grant this family this gift and I hope that it brings them some happiness and fun this holiday season. I am keeping their names private to let them enjoy this gift - but thank you to everyone who sent in nominations and to all the families out there who were nominated. Everyone have a very Merry Christmas!
