Michael Angelo’s Winner

Wow!  We are all busy mom’s.  I knew there would be no way to pick a winner based on level of busyness but I will confess that I enjoyed reading all of your stories (all 2300+).  It is great encouragement sometimes to read and realize that we aren’t alone.

So after reading most every comment I went to my old standby Random.org.  The random winner is

Kathy H – mommyrn5@

I am the busiest mom because I have 6 children, ages 11, 10, 8, 6, 3, and 4 months. My husband is in the Air Force, and 13 days after my youngest was born, he left for a year in S. Korea. I also homeschool my children. While my husband is gone, I get to prepare our house to be sold so we can move to our next duty station, which so far has included making small repairs around the house, and having 2 dead pine trees in our back yard cut down then getting rid of the wood. My 8yo daughter is also a cancer survivor, and we have frequent appointments to see specialists and get scans done. Being a military family, I have no relatives nearby to help carry my load or care for the kids while I take care of my various responsibilities. To say life is busy is a huge understatement.

Kathy wins 52 family sized meals!

For everyone else check back in the morning for another chance.  You have 4 more chances, once each day!

    • Meme

      I was about to enter for the contest today when I realized I have it easy compared with what others are going through. So I just decided to let others have a better chance to win and left my name out of the running. I know what Kathy is going through. I had seven children and a very busy husband trying to support his family and still be a good Dad. He also volunteered with projects to help the community and needy individuals. I felt left out at times but always rejoiced in what the overall picture represented (loving our fellowmen). So congratulations on winning, Kathy! Find joy in each day, especially among your sweet children. And put candles on the table the nights you have your “special Mom's Day Off” meal!

    • Helena Upchurch
