R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Mel Will Give You One for Free!

My bloggy friend Melanie over at "My Little Patch of Sunshine" is having a giveaway that ends on Mother's Day.

Macy's has teamed up with the Family Violence Prevention Fund and are selling these bracelets with the word RESPECT stamped in them. Half of the proceeds for these $5 bracelets will benefit the RESPECT! campaign, a Family Violence Prevention Fund initiative sponsored by Macy's to raise funds and awareness to end violence against women and children.

Melanie is giving one of the bracelets away on her blog. Stop by her place and enter the contest!

Thinking about the bracelet gave me pause to think long and hard about how I can be more respectful toward my children. It's so easy lately for me to get impatient or snippy with them after being asked the same question 20 times in a row. I need to take the time to make sure my example is one I want them to take with them out into the world.

So thanks for the gentle reminder Melanie. It came at a good time for me.
