I can't believe that I won this adorable heart pillow from Becky over at Sweet Cottage Dreams!!!! I am so excited, I can't stand it! I just love it.
Becky's friend, Kim, at Dear Daisy Cottage is encouraging fellow bloggers to make a fabric heart to send to Jack. ( A man who recently lost his wife to cancer.) Kim's blog friends made hearts for her that she keeps in a basket, so she thought the same idea would be great for Jack and bring him some comfort.
To encourage bloggers to make hearts to send to Jack, Becky hosted a giveaway with her own heart pillow. In order to win, you could leave a comment. If you had sent Becky's Scottie dog, Duhgall a birthday wish, you got another chance to win. If you were going to send Jack a heart you got another chance to win. All in all, you could get 3 chances to win.
I had earlier sent Duhgall a birthday wish and since I am making a heart to send to Jack, I got 3 chances to win. On Monday night, Becky let Duhgall pick a name out of the basket and my name was the one picked. I told Becky to be sure to give "Doogie" an extra dog biscuit for picking my name. I am just so excited.
If you have not had a chance to visit Becky's blog, Sweet Cottage Dreams, please do so. It is a beautiful blog and her dogs are the cutest ever. Please head over and visit Kim's blog, Dear Daisy Cottage. It is precious too. You can also read the story about Jack's wife Tabatha. She died on January 23, 2010. The deadline to send a heart to Kim to be sent to Jack is March 31st, so there is still time. You might want to make one too!
Just think, your random act of kindness could mean the world to this sweet man who lost his wife to cancer and who is hurting right now. We never know what small thing we can do to brighten someones day.
