Good Morning Ladies,

Welcome to the Autism Awareness Blog Hop.  If you are stopping here from the talented  Zenita - ScrappnwithZ blog than you are in the right place.  If you get lost you can always start at the beginning with my good friend Cori at createdbycori who has worked for months to bring together this group of ladies for World Autism Awareness Day.

Today, people all over the world will "light it up blue" to shine a light on Autism.   Today I am thinking about several of my girlfriends who have children with Autism, they are my heroes.

Here is my card:

The sentiment reads ~ " We know God wants His best for us, we just don't know how difficult His best will be".

I always have to give away a little candy for my blog hops, so here is some for you.

To win this candy, please become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment telling me that you are a follower. If you are already a follower, just leave me a message saying hi.  I will announce the winner on Tuesday, April 3rd.

Ok, your next stop on the blog hop is the super talented Colleen Creations by Colleen
