Halloween Birthday thoughts

Hello everyone,
It is 12:15am on October 31,2011.

Twenty six years ago I became a Mother the second time to my Beautiful daughter Samantha. I remember being in the hospital for a scheduled C-section. However I started contractions about 3:00am, so she was going to be born that day scheduled or not.

I am not sure where the time has went. Each year when my Daughters have a Birthday I ask myself the same question. the Sleepless nights turned into Preschool days, then Grade School, Middle School and High School days. Birthday parties, Sleep overs,Dates and Dances, Throw in a Wedding and College, new Jobs and moving experiences...well it all continues to travel very fast.

I am learning to stop and smell the roses.

Take it One day at a Time.

to Learn from the Past, Don't worry about the Future ( the Future never does "get here" ) and to keep trying to do the Next right thing.

Why did I Push myself at "Breakneck Speed" for years? for what? Sometimes I was so busy, I did not stop to "play a game", "watch a movie", once I missed a Concert ( I had to teach a Dance class) but at what price? There are many times I did do those things, but sometimes I didn't stop to do the little things. Now I wish that I had.

I am so very Greatful to have two Amazing Daughters. I could not be a richer or more blessed Woman. On the Eve of the Youngest daughter's is nice to remember that

Thank you for letting me share , and if you have children or children in your life.Take time for them. You won't regret it.

We are so excited about hitting 1,000 likes. To celebrate, we are doing a '1,000 likes give away!' Wanting to enter?? Here's what you do.

Below will be a picture of a jar of beans.

To enter, go to the announcement post of this give away on our Vintage Whispers Wall on Facebook. The post will begin as "ANNOUNCEMENT POST"

Secondly, post your guess! You can only post your guess only ONCE. Place it as a comment under the Announcement Post.

Lastly, tag Vintage Whispers in a post on your wall!

Sounds easy right? Now what is the prize you ask? The winner will receive the very first pillow of our NEW "Dream Pillow" line! Scented with lavender, this heart shaped pillow will help you drift off into the land of dreams. There is even a pouch on the front for you to put a piece of paper and record your dreams when you wake! How fun is that?!

Remember you can only guess once. If someone guesses the winning number after a previous person guessed it already, the first person who guessed it will win. If no one guesses the right number, the person CLOSEST will win. Should two people be off by one number, low or high, the low guess would be the winner.

(Example: The winning number is 8. Someone guessed 7 and another guessed 9. The person who guessed 7 will win.)

The winner will be announced Sunday Night, October 2 2011, by 10PM EST if we hit our 1,000th like. If we haven't hit it yet, the winner will be announced when we hit 1,000.
