Achieving Goals - Planning a Giveaway!

One of the things I always beat into my sons heads as they were growing up was," keep your eye on the prize".  What I meant by that was, set goals, keep focused and you will succeed. They have both taken those words to heart and are now successful men and I am so very proud of them.
Now, being a good mama, I never practiced what I preached.  Life gave me a tough exterior but,  inside, I was a timid little mouse.  No confidence. Always second guessing myself.  Always anticipating failure.

Then I met Mr. B.  He allowed me, nay pushed and shoved me, to become the person I am today.  You know the song "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban? Every time I hear that song I cry! Why?  It's not  just because Mr. B had that song playing in the background as he proposed, cuz he did.  It is because it so encompasses how I feel about Mr. B.  He has always asked me  to ask myself "what do I need to do to make me happy." He was the one that kept telling me I needed to blog.  Get my words out there.  Stretch myself.  Keep my eye on the prize.

When I started this blog I had some unspoken goals in mind. I must say, I am surprised that in just 8 weeks, I have shattered several of them. Now two of my bigger goals are in sight in a much shorter time than I had anticipated, which is a very good thing, right?
One of my goals was to have 100 followers by Christmas. Now I don't go out and beg for followers.  That really isn't my style at all. I want you to want to come visit and see what I am up to.  Yep that's right, I want nosey followers! As I write this I have 84 new friends!  That makes me so very happy.  Everyone likes a happy Kath! I have a hunch that I  just might actually have 100 followers/ buddies before Thanksgiving. 

My other goal was hitting 15,000 page views.  I had no frame of reference so I really didn't know when I might achieve that goal.  Well if you scroll down to the bottom left of my blog (go on and look, I'll wait......) you will see I am reallyreally close to reaching that goal too!
I so want to thank all of you faithful friends and even those that stop by for a quick visit so, I am going to have a GIVEAWAY.  Once both of those goals are reached the giveaway will begin.  Now one may come way before the other but, if you  believe, like I do,  they will happen. I don't know what the giveaway will entail as yet but I do know I will make it fun and exciting for you my friends.

All you have to do right now is keep an eye out for when I hit my goals (scroll down to the left corner) and announce the giveaway! I hope to see you soon!
