When he was small, my youngest son had a habit of filling his pockets with treasures he encountered in his daily adventures. I didn't always understand the value he saw in his chosen objects -- really, how many rocks and sticks could one boy keep? In his eyes, though, each one was beautiful and important. Life is just like that on a larger scale, isn't it? We gather up the precious bits of our experiences and save them all to learn from and enjoy later. Perhaps you'll find a little something here that you'd like to keep in your own pockets. Thanks for visiting.

Thank you

It's over!

After a very crazy and exhilarating last two days of voting, I'm thrilled to say that Pocketfuls finished in the #6 spot out of 104 blogs in the Top 25 Canadian Moms Contest! Your enthusiasm helped launch this blog to a finish waaaaayyyy beyond what I had hoped for when I first entered the contest. In the words of my 11 year old son Noah, "That was epic." :)

As a top 25 finisher, I will have my blog featured on the Circle of Moms site, which has a readership of six million moms. From a writer's perspective, the opportunity to get my work out to so many new readers is really exciting! I hope that you'll continue to visit here, and to find something in my words that will be helpful to you, or will make you laugh, or will touch your heart somehow.

I know I've said it many times throughout this contest, but honestly, "thank you" doesn't really seem sufficient for the support so many of you have shown. You helped make this such a fun and happy experience for me, and I'm quite moved by the kindness and encouragement you've given. I very heartily and sincerely appreciate it all.

Thank you again, everyone!  Have a wonderful weekend.   xo ~ Lisa
