Ornaments With Love #HolidayGiftGuide2014

Last year I reviewed an ornament that was made for my mom. She had recently lost her husband and the ornament became a memento of their life together. It brought her to tears when she opened it. I never felt so good about a gift I had given.
Thank you, Ornaments With Love.
And, thank you for giving me another opportunity to give a special gift this year.
With so much ease, I went to the website and ordered the item I wanted. It was easy to personalize it, as it is all laid out for you. Within a week, I had the ornament in my hand.
This year, I give my sister something extra special. She has had it rough lately and I just want to show her how much I care and I will always be there. She has always been there for me, even if I didn't deserve it. On this earth, I'm not closer to anyone else in my family than her. When I saw this ornament, I knew it was made for us.
My sister is blonde and I am brunette. She is my older sister and her favorite color is blue. I like blue, red and pink. You see the resemblance, right?! And so will she. Man, I hope she cries. The good cry though....
Ornaments With Love has such a huge selection you are guaranteed to find things for the people in your lives. Be sure to check them out, you won't regret it!

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
