We’re down to our 2nd to last Giveaway from our friends at PartyLite.  Last week’s Coast Lights set went out to Kelly G. with her answer:

The things in my house I am most proud of are the ultrasound photos I had framed after having my children. I was able to pick out some pretty, stylish mats and frames, and they are very cool, personal, and fun conversation starters!

This week we’ve got a set of 3 PartyLite Blue Waves Candle Holder with a box of tealights to go with them.

    I am most proud of a framed photo from my wedding. My father passed away and was not at my wedding so to have him "there" with me. I had a bouquet charm made with a picture of us from when I was little. It is just a beautiful photo of my bouquet and my charm.

    My Dad has shown me to appreciate life he suffered a stoke 15 yrs ago, he never gave up he was paralyzed from one side and he is now walking at 83 yrs he still wants to be out doing things he doesn't like to hear us say I am tired he has never to this day used that phrase. He is unable to drive (eye sight) and that is depressing him so much but I will go and take him out to his ranch and appreciate what he worked for all his Life. My Dad is my Hero. He showed me to be a Strong Person to Never Give up! Alway look Forward. He has rough hands but a Very Gentle Heart. Love You Dad!!!

    My Dad took the time to read to me. He taught me the inportance of an education. He told me to always do my best. He made up stories to tell me when I sat on his lap. He took me yard sale hunting for old records so we could sit and listen together in the wee hours of the morning. He inspired me to give of my time and service to others. He taught me that time and love are the most important things we can share.
    Every Father's Day was grand. He was my DAD! He passed away in 1981 and I still miss him every day. Happy Father's Day DAD! You were the best.

    I was blessed with a wonderful, loving father, and he always gave the credit to his own mother. My father was one of eight children, and he lost his father when he was only seven years old to a fatal heart attack. His mother, my grandmother, work tirelessly to support the family, and keep them together. As each child reached an age where they were able to work to help support the family, they did just that. My father left school in the eighth grade, and was not able to graduate high school. He found a job to help contribute support to his family, and he did so until the day he married my mother. He finally got his diploma many years later. My father taught me great respect for all people, and he always showed great respect for women, especially his mother, and my mother. Everyone who knew him always said the same thing about him, that he was one of a kind. I miss him even today, but I always think about him when I hear of the many injustices in this world, because I know how he felt about the suffering of others. Because of him, I always try to do the right thing, to help in some small way, because that's what he always did.

  5. I am most proud of my wife and five children…they are the reason that I work so hard. They inspire my creativity. Everytime one of my children gives me a new drawing/project they have worked on or whenever my wife crafts a wonderful organic experience of a meal…That makes me proud, and humbled at the same time!

    I'm most proud of our home which was built by my father-in-law in 1954. My husband moved in when he was two-years-old. He has done remodeling and upkeep himself and want to keep the home in the family for the next generations to come.

    When I was younger my Dad included me when he was repairing, building or improving things inside and outside our home. Now that I am a single Mom I knew exactly what to do and the tools I needed to build the steps I needed going into my garage door, and building the beautiful headboard for my bed and I can also put a super tune-up on my own lawn mower before I mow the grass. Needless to say my Dad is always on my mind when I am completing these tasks.

    My grandfather ran out on our family during a midlife crisis. He left my grandmother and married a girl who was younger than two of this three children. I never knew my grandfather.

    My grandfather became ill 6 years ago due alcoholism. My father was the only one of his offspring who went to care for him. My grandfather depended on my father entirely. He died after three years of sickness.

    The reason this inspires me is that my Dad has never once complained about what happened. He has never spoken ill of his father. I hope to be has good as he is.

    I don't really have a fond Father's Day memory because I do not recall any significant Father's Days. My dad hates to receive gifts from us. He believes that he already has everything he could need or want. Plus, the idea of new socks or ties never really gets him excited. My fondest memories are made of the everyday stuff we did together.

    My dad represents to me the full meaning of "empathy and charity" towards people and in life. He left us one and a half year ago after battling with cancer for 5 years. He was a Doctor in Peru and worked all his life for the poor, with the poor and in the Peruvian jungle. He never had fortune because he shared every penny with the people that was in need. He represents to me the joy of living by giving and not expecting to receive nothing in exchange. He battled for his life in the same way as he had battled for his patients'life. He will be always remembered and missed, and is a role model for his grandkids.

    I am looking forward to this father's day. Spending the day with my husband and kids as well as with my Dad and Mom at a minor league baseball game! Fun times together.
