It's "JoAnna's Jems" Time

****PLEASE NOTE**** this post will stay at the top until "JoAnna's Jems" is completed. Please scroll down for the new posts.

I felt that it was time for "JoAnna's Jems". I have surpassed 30,000 hits and if it was not for all of you coming by each and everyday, I would not be this high with hits, so it is time to give back.

Let me give you a bit of background of a story. My mom works as an insurance agent and her boss was diagnosed with a type of cancer in her bones a little over a year ago. She has been going thru alot and just recently had a stem cell transplant and has been unable to work, which leaves my mom running the division herself and me helping when I am off of school. She is doing much better since coming home from the hospital, but it is a slow process for her.

So, I decided that this round of "JoAnna's Jems" is going to be different. There will be many different opportunities for you to enter.

Here are all the different ways you can be entered:

1. Leave a comment on this post

2. Refer a friend and they leave a comment saying that you referred them to my blog

3. If you add me to your Blogroll, leave a comment and it will get you 5 entries

4. Making a Get Well card for "Debbi" and mailing it to me so that I can get lots of well wishes to her. This option will get you 5 entries. You can email me for my address to where to send the card.

In total you can have 12 chances to win this round of "JoAnna's Jems" This round of "JoAnna's Jems" will run until 1/12/2008, this is to make sure everyone has time to enter.

I also want to say thank you for coming and visiting me, this is so much fun and I appreciate each and everyone one of you.

I work in medical administration and I am confronted with such diagnoses every day. It's just when something like that happens to someone we know we realize how big the impact is for the person and its environment.
I hope 2008 will be a better year voor your mom's boss!
