By now most you have read the touching story of

Sweet Baby Bella Marie.

(if not...please click on her name above for the full story)

This tiny little baby is the granddaughter of my sweet blogging friend...

The Fabulously Famous Deb of Talking Trash.

Bella Marie was born on March 12 at a mere 24 weeks and weighed in at 15 oz.
Bella continues to grow and amaze her doctors while living in NICU. She now weighs 3 pounds and her mommy and daddy have been able to hold her for the first time this past weekend! Check out the sweet photos at her mommy Jenn's blog The Apiary.

A couple of weeks ago the amazing women at Trailer Trash and Garden Antqs Vintage came up with the brilliant idea to have a raffle for Sweet Bella.

Woman from near and far have banned together and donated items for a fundraiser to help with Ms. Bella's Hospital Bills.
You can now buy raffle tickets for a chance to win fabulous items donated by some of the most talented women from across the land. Almost 50 people have donated more than 50 items! That's a lot of chances to win! And the more tickets you buy.....the more times they throw your name in the hat! Oh...and did I tell you...the tickets are only $10.00 each?

If you haven't already....please go by the blog that was set up just for the raffle. Just click HERE and buy a ticket for Ms. Bella. You will be amazed at all the wonderful items that are going to be given away. Tickets will be on sale till May 30. You better hurry before all the lucky numbers are gone!

I'll leave you this morning with my favorite photo of Ms. Bella...

Blessings from her tiny heart and my delighted heart to yours!

What a great cause.

I used to work as a nanny for a baby who was born at 24 weeks - the hospital said it was the worse case they have ever witnessed. And she's now 7 years old and completely healthy.

Patti, excuse me while I give Angie a great big hug! These are the stories Jenn was hungry to hear the past weeks and God sent people to her to share theirs. It reaffirmed that great things were being done in the name of the Father. Thanks you Angie!
Now back to you, my precious friend. There just aren't words good enough to describe you! You're like a fine racehorse. Some are only good on a short, dry track...quick on the take off but unable to sustain till the end. You on the other hand, start out steady and smooth and can go the distance in rain, mud or dust. You're there at the start of the gun and you're there at the finish line! It is such a blessing to know I am friends with a throughbred and a class act to boot. Thank you Lord for bring this unique and lovely lady into my life.
P.S. I'm still trying to work details out to attend the shower! Don't give up on me.
