Congratulations to all. Good work. I have to say I am really shocked. I stretched out of my comfort zone, and thought I didn't have a prayer of placing. Thanks you, judges.

And now for the mandatory happy dancin':

Congratulations one and all.:party I wasn't too sure about Raggedy Ann and Andy placing, but want to thank the judges for their show of support. There were so many great entries this week. Many of my favorites made it on this list, :superhappy and I'm sure I'll see many more in the top 40 later today. :clap :clap :clap

Now, onward to try and tackle that adulthood thing. :?

Thank you for my 3rd place in the Beginners! I appreciated the feedback I received as well throughout the week :) . I was reminded this week, as I read through alot of the stories, just how I could relate to alot to some of the feelings/emotions that the other writer's shared. I enjoyed writing my piece and sharing a part of my testimony....so thankful I found this site!
