Meredith,
I found your blog a few weeks ago and I have truly been blessed by reading it. I have been very sick since my normally controlled asthma reared it's ugly head. Through the ER and Dr. visits, the pills and the numerous breathing treatments your blog has been a breath of fresh air! Thanks!
Bright blessings, Kim

Nicki said...

Meredith,
I was just recently introduced to your blog this past week. This weekend I spent quite a bit of time reading through your archives. I have to say that you have inspired me in my homemaking, hospitality, and many other areas. Thank you for sharing all of the things that you do. I cannot tell you how much I have learned this weekend. As a matter of fact, the majority of my family's conversation today at brunch, after church, stemmed from my telling everyone about your blog. :)

I hope it doesn't sound like I'm sugaring you up to get an edge on the book prize! LOL! However, I've been thinking that I need to tell you how much I enjoy your site...so this seems like as good a time as any. :)

Thank you for sharing with all of us. This little place of yours is truly a blessing.

How on earth will you decide? Well, I'd be honored to be considered.

By the way, I thought of you today when I woke up inspired to make a pot of chili and invite some friends over for lSunday lunch. I had everything I needed on hand and thought, "oh, Meredith would be so proud that I stocked up on all these canned goods when they were on sale so I can have people over at the last minute!"

Would love to be part of your drawing! Right now I am practicing hospitality with four 10 year old boys! My son's school has a day off so 3 of his friends are here to sled and snowboard down our big hill in the backyard. They enjoyed sloppy joes, french fries, chocolate cake and fruit punch while I threw their wet clothes in the dryer. They are back outside, thank goodness! Dianne

Thanks so much for your lovely blog sharing. These books sound wonderful, a must have for my ever growing huge library. Enjoyed your catering and want to try the turkey pitas in my own busy household after seeing your assembly duties. :-) I've subscribed to your blog after finally finding out about how to do that (silly me, I was clicking your blog each day to see more of your fun, fun, fun here!) You have blessed many other women in blogland. Thank you also for your nice comment on my own blog today.
