and I thought I would share, some words from Tonya's Blog.. so deserving isn't she…



As time goes by I am reminded that to everything there is a season and a purpose. Time must be appreciated. Time is so very precious to me but stands still for no one. I am in my second year of college and half way through my third semester. I will graduate in May! I can't help but think of all the time I spend with my nose in the books and completing homework, yet, there is a purpose and I must obtain my goal. I must keep putting one foot in front of the other.
I miss creating and having free time. Free time to just "BE." Be able to spend time with my children without having to worry about what assignment or essay is due. Be able to just rest, if only for a while, without having (what feels like) the weight of the world on my shoulders. I know there are others that are going through the same thing or worse, but I can't help but wonder ~ When will life get easier?

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!

Someone needs to PINCH ME!! I read that I had won and my jaw dropped and then of course became teary eyed!

Terri, you don't know how much I need something like this and it gives me something to look forward to as well. I just cannot imagine being able to be at an ART CAMP with you and so many other talented ladies.

I have been on cloud 9 since I read that I had won. I was sitting in class and could hardly contain myself! I could not respond at that moment and I was just beside myself!

You have no idea how much I appreciate your generous gift. Thank you for the bottom of my heart, but that hardly seems like enough.

To the person that has graciously given miles for the flight, a great BIG THANK YOU as well! I would have had to start saving pennies for the flight starting today. With three children and only one income coming in, since I am attending college full-time, has been quite difficult to say the least.

You both have made my day, my week, my year!! I will count the days until I get to go on my wonderful ART CAMP JOURNEY!

Thank you again! This sure is a HALLOWEEN like no other! One I will remember for the rest of my life, for sure.

With much happiness and gratitude - Thank you again!

Big Hugs,

Congratulations Tonya! Have a great retreat! I live in Oregon and know how beautiful it is here on the coast - you may even want to consider a day or two extra just to enjoy the Oregon coast!

Hey Terri - I've been wanting to attend the Oregon Coast Spring Retreat and can't resist taking advantage of the $100 discount. I tried to sign up on the link provided and was able to put the down payment into my cart but for some reason can't seem to figure out how to check out. Could you email me and help me out?


~Tonya said...

Thank you so much for the congratulations ladies and kind words.

Mo, we may just meet after all...you never know :)

I am still grinning ear to ear and I feel like a kid at Christmas time.

Thank you again, Terri. I just had to post on my blog and share my most wonderful news. It is not often that I have something good to share. This was the kind of news that I would love to shout from the rooftop!

Cheers and Happy Halloween to you!
