The winner of the beautiful embroidered St. Patrick pillowcases from Catholic Embroidery is Barbara, who wrote:
Those are beautiful. I would hate to see them tossed in the wash with jeans so dirty they could stand in the corner. I am not sending one off this year, but I've been there, done that. Parenting children out of the nest is ten times harder than parenting those under the wing. Give me ten five-year-olds to a 19-year-old trying his wings for the first time. That's why we get knee replacements after they leave -- all that praying! God bless.
Barbara, send me your mailing information and I'll get those pillowcases off to you!
I do hope everyone's college sendoffs were blessed and beautiful, if a little teary and tense.
