Oh, Mona, that is bittersweet--but congratulations nonetheless!

Congrats to everyone on the lists--there were so many interesting perspectives this week.

I don't know about you all, but a week of rest will be nice:).

Till October.

Congratulations to all. First week I've not entered in some time. Strange too, because we are retired, and nothing would come to my mind that hasn't already been said - good :P and bad :cry: - about retirement. Like they say, maybe, can't see the forest for the trees.

Anyway, love reading your entires, and being a Faithwriter! :mrgreen:

Congratulations One and All

Congratulations to all the winners. As always, I marvel at the talent here at FW. I enjoyed reading many great entries this past week.

Also, congrats to all who entered because just having an entry is such an achievement! (I did not manage to get one in last week and regretted it big time after the fact.) Every entry is a blessing :angel2

Have a truly blessed week.

Congratulations to all. Happy Dancin' with my special friends, sitting pretty in EC. It would have been difficult to judge this week--there were so many great entries. I enjoyed reading as many as I could for those who threw bricks and thought the stories and poems showed great originality and humor. (Sorry Mona about missing EC, but 1st place in advanced is something to be proud of.)
