** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

PAY IT FORWARD GIVE-AWAY

Right before Christmas, I was very blessed to be one of the winners in Mikki's Pay It Forward Give-Away!! A few days after I was notified that I'd won, I received this wonderful package~

Boca Java

...a sampler of Boca Java Gourmet Coffee! I had never heard of this awesome coffee before but it has truly been some of THE best coffee I've ever tasted! It arrived just in time to try out my brand new Cuisinart Coffee Maker I received for Christmas! :0) It truly is YUMMY!

Now, I get to Pay It Forward by having a give-away of my own! If you are interested in receiving a gift** from me of a few of my favorite things and you are willing to pay forward a gift of some of your favorite things, then comment here on this post to let me know you that you are interested.

Of course, first you need to know all the rules, right?

In order to win, you need to be willing to......

  • Give me your mailing address so I can send a small gift your way.
  • Once you receive your gift, write your own Pay It Forward post telling about it and the give-away, including a link back to my blog in that post.
  • Come up with gifts to send out to YOUR two (2) winners.

    If you feel able to follow these specific rules, then leave me a comment letting me know and you will be entered! TWO (2) winners will be chosen randomly out of a basket by my youngest daughter, Bek, on Saturday, January 23rd.

    Extra entries may be obtained by doing any of the following (be sure to leave a SEPARATE COMMENT for EACH thing you do):

    • Follow my blog via Google Friends
    • Subscribe to my blog via email.
    • Follow my blog on twitter and tweet about this giveaway. You may tweet once a day for an extra entry every day. You can copy and paste: Pay It Forward Giveaway by @2ManyHeartbeats. http://bit.ly/7ZRwd0 #giveaway #payitforward PLS RT!
    • Blog about paying it forward and ways to 'Pay it Forward'. Be sure to mention this give-away and include a link to my blog (THREE entries, be sure to leave three comments for each!)

    Contest ends at 11:59 EST on Friday, January 22nd. I will draw TWO (2) winners at random and announce them on Saturday, January 23rd. PLEASE be sure to leave your email address if it is not visible on your profile. I will notify both winners via email and they will have 48 hours to respond.

    I'm really excited and I hope you are, too!

    Blessings,

    Teresa

    ** NOTE: There has been some confusion about the gift I will be sending. It will not be coffee, at least not all of it. I have not really decided yet but it will be a gift of SEVERAL of my favorite things. My daughters will be helping me shop but I can tell you that you will not be disappointed! :0)

    Sounds great...count me in!

    My friend was in the drive through at starbucks last day and the car in front of her paid for her hot chocolate. She then "paid it forward" to the car behind her. I wonder how far that went?!
