I had a great weekend and I am still feeling very grateful for the $25,000 award check that Skinny Mom won on Thursday night.  I have a boost in my faith and I know that more good things are going to happen in the future.  For everyone who asked what I am going to do with the money?  Well, I plan to keep my fabulous editor Tori on staff and help cover overhead expenses associated with the website.  After that, I plan to try to put as much as I can back into growing the website and expanding our reach around the world.

On another note, I had a rough week in my personal life but I have a peace, and I truly believe that everything is going to be okay (Daniel, chapter 3).  Here is a list of my top 10 quotes that I have plastered everywhere around my home so I can continue to read them as often as I can.  Feel free to comment and add to the list and share with all of your friends on Facebook or Twitter.
