I'm thrilled to be a finalist! Thanks for this contest. Any opportunity for advancement toward publication is a blessing. :-)

You know I try to never 'sit by the phone' and wait for these contest results because, invariably, they tend to be later than expected.

This time, I definitely was waiting for that call. What a blessing to hear from Sandra Lee Smith on Christmas Eve. I figured by then, if I didn't hear, I wasn't going to.

Thanks Kathleen from the NE'ers. And Everyone it seems knows of Tina Pinson!

Thanks Michelle!
