Last Day for My Losing Season Contest...I have two great entries so far...
Okay...I can't help but think of Ross and Rachel of "Friends" when I read my post title!
Ross yells..."We were on a break!"
So...if you are not a fan of the TV show "Friends" ...I am just totally weird to you at this moment or maybe if you are a fan of the show...I am still totally weird to you at this moment!
I am going to take a little break from blogging...as I have been using blogging to avoid (Yes really!) some work issues!
I am still reading My Losing Season by Pat Conroy and it is just a big surprise that I have enjoyed this book so much. First, it's his memoir, second he attended Citadel and thirdly he played basketball for Citadel! I would have thought that would be the trifecta of "not interesting" but I would have been wrong!
I have thought about the many times in my life that I have lost... whether it be in sports, or in love, or in pregnancies but for me the real tragedy is how many times fear just kept me out of the "game!"
So, I am having a little contest in which you may blog a story about a time when you lost. But, in that losing you have gained something bigger! The winner who will be selected by a poll which will open
Saturday, November 22 and close...Wednesday, November 26!
The announcement will be made on Thanksgiving Day!
Post a story written now or in the past, let me know and link it to me! Also, let everyone know what charity you would like to blog for...this will let others be aware of some important charities out there! The deadline for entry is Friday, November 21!
I will donate $50 to the winning charity!
Here are two entries so far...I will keep adding to this post!
Candid Carrie's My Dearest Madeleine Rose
Hippie Family's Giving to Give
Journey of Faith- A Path to Motherhood The Story Behind the Title
So I won't be blogging this week...but I will be reading your blogs!
