Holidays are obviously a favorite time for many of us whether you are a teacher, student, or housewife etc. I’m especially alive with much excitement and enthusiasm at this time of year simply because there are seasons for celebration and giving thanks. For some of us, it means to gather with family and friends to give thanks for the many blessings enjoyed. The act of thanksgiving celebration is just not a holiday, neither should it be limited to these times of the year, however, it should be done every other day or occasion. In whatever we do, wherever we are, in whatever we have (whether in plenty or in want) or in whatever situations. I have been constantly reminded to always give thanks. And giving thanks or showing gratitude should come naturally in our everyday lives.
So for this moment, I would like to first of all thank those of you who have taken an interest in Projekdorcas and been a great friend and supporter since it started. I think it’s been almost a year and half now for ProjekDorcas. Along the challenging journey that has been, it was also a great pleasure serving you. I know the number of page views for my blog here right now is not that great – but I don’t have to wait till that ‘big’ to thank you, right?
Being grateful and in a celebrative mood at this time , I have decided a Giveaway for this month to let you know how thankful I am for you here at Projek Dorcas. You have helped me reached a new milestone in terms of your encouragement and support.
I started learning how to make soaps in last November and since then I have often been engaging in amazing soaping adventures. If you visit the blog or my facebook, you can see some natural handmade soaps created which have proven to be very kind and gentle for skin.So my giveaway for you will be some soaps worth about RM60, packed and wrapped in a lovely box.
But before you can win this giveaway, you’ll have to first of all, head over to Projek Dorcas fan page. Click the ‘Share’ button below the photo (thanksgiving) posted and comment below this photo “what you are thankful for this year and why”. You may share and comment once a day or everyday, for a better chance of winning. This giveaway contest ends on November 24th, 2012, Saturday at 12.00 noon (Malaysian time).
A winner will be chosen by random.org and announced on the Facebook page. For the Giveaway which has to be shipped (awarded) to the winner residing in Peninsular Malaysia, postage will be free ( I will gladly bear your cost 🙂 ). However if you are a winner residing outside Malaysia, postal charges for your giveaway may have to be borne by you. That’s fair, ok?
So have fun and give your thanks.
Happy Thanksgiving ! 🙂
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
