I’m not good with things like this. I never have been. Delete.
There’s no easy way to write about this without sounding like I’m… Delete.
Don’t confuse my shyness with lack of desire to talk. If you know me, you know that I clearly do not have a problem with that. Delete.
Okay, out with it.
The kind, supportive and always thinking of others, Sandi from Canadian Blog House has nominated me for the…
Walmart Canada Mom of The Year Award.
I am truly humbled. I really don’t know what to say besides, Thank you. But, it doesn’t seem sufficient.
First up is Round One and it’s all up to the judges. They will take some time to review all the worthy nominees and whittle down the nominations to 20 Semi-Finalists. If The House of Lazarus and I are selected, you will be the first ones to know. Likely around May 30, 2014.
I won’t go into the details of Round 2 yet because we’re no where near that point, however, it is a voting contest, of which I am not a fan, but I’ll do it. If I have to. Because I like to put my money where my mouth is. And if that means that I could win for my charity I’d do almost anything.
That is a really wonderful nomination, a beautiful write up about you. All the best to you! You deserve it! Let me know if you need votes!
It is a wonderful write-up that made me blush. I’m willing to take one for the team if it means that House of Lazarus benefits. Thanks for your support.

Congrats! And suck it up – you deserve a little of the sunshine you spread around!
Exactly what I needed to hear.
House of Lazarus, my community and every single person that uses the Foodbank need me to do what I have to do to win them the $10,000.

You are totally deserving of this award. I know this because one I have met you in person, okay it was only for a few minutes, but I have chatted with you online for a long time and you are a wonderful mom.

That is fantastic, Sandi is a wonderful person and said It right Sarah. It’s nice to see someone nominated that you know and deserves to win, not that the other nominees do not….but I don’t know them! What ever I can do whenever I can do it I’m in as you are a very compassionate person (all joking aside lol) and I know if the shoe was on the other foot that I’d see your name there as support. Congrats on being nominated and here is to going all the way!!! Klink Klink
Thank you so much for your kind words. You are 100% right in saying that Sandi is a wonderful person, that the other nominees are worthy recipients and that I would be there to support you and my other friends if they needed my support. For the sake of my charity, I hope that they win.
