Winner for Attitude of Gratitude Contest

We appreciate all those who took the time to submit nominations in our Attitude of Gratitude contest. The stories shared with us were all very touching and many required us to have the Kleenex box handy as we read through them! Just reading the entries made us realize what great people there are in our community living their lives out of the spotlight, but making our world a better place by the lives they live. It was a pleasure to get to read about each person.

Since we wanted the decision to be unbiased we had a committee that didn't know any of the nominees select the winner. They each said the same thing - "It's so hard to choose!"

They ultimately did choose Lyndsey, a 16 year old whose unselfish ways have made an impact on those around her. She has helped to be a caregiver for her single mom through medical difficulties, taking on responsibilities that adults would often find challenging. She has also been a great help with her younger brother that has ADHD. Instead of focusing on herself, she is motivated to do anything she can for her family all in a spirit of love, and looks for ways that she can contribute to her family's well being.

There were several others nominated that we'd also like to recognize for all that they bring to our community.

Sherri and Tim's family has been a shining example of contentment and love. They have shown what family is all about to over a dozen foster children over the years even while struggling with medical problems that prevented them from being able to work and the financial difficulties that brought along. Even in the challenging circumstances they have found themselves in, they are content just being together as a family and living life a day at a time. That sweet spirit has been infused in their children as well.

Kathi has been both an inspiration and God send for her family. She went back to school and became a doctor while raising her family. She graciously allowed members of family to live with her when their living arrangements were uncertain and continued to give of her time by offering childcare for them even while she was battling cancer.

Bobbie lost her mother too soon to cancer and vowed to do whatever she could so that other families wouldn't have to suffer the way her family had. For the past 16 years she has been a driving force in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in Lorain County as her way of fighting back against this atrocious disease. The lives she has touched are too numerous to count as she has helped to raise funds for research, offered a hug or held a hand of someone fighting their own battle or been there at the luminary ceremony with survivors to stand with them to say "we will prevail" for another year.

From a young age Shelly became a caretaker of her large family due to her mother's medical issues. Even when grown with a family of her own she still continues to offer herself - her time and her resources with her extended family "all with a smile" and without expectation of anything in return or to even take time for herself. Shelly has also known the heartache of losing her stillborn daughter, but still has been able to see the joy in life and lives hers out in a way which instills admiration and pride in those who know her.

My heart is full just looking back at each of these stories. We hope you'll be as inspired by their stories as we were. May we all live each day with an attitude of gratitude.

Congratulations to Lyndsey for winning the $500 worth of custom portraiture and to Tonya for nominating her and winning a free session and $100 worth of custom portraits!

Attitude of Gratitude Contest

Just knowing them is inspirational. What they do or who they are has encouraged you, made you long to be like them or moved you to tears with empathy for their courage and strength in a time of testing. You appreciate them for their grace under pressure, the way they give of themselves without anything expected in return or for the little things that they do without thinking anyone else is watching. But it makes a difference. To you. To your family. Maybe even your community.

In this busy world we often don't stop to let people know how much they have meant to us or inspired us simply by living their lives. We think it's time to slow down and have an "Attitude of Gratitude" for all of those people who enrich our lives, challenge and inspire us. We're asking you to join us and help us to show our gratitude for the people who make this world a better place to live, sometimes regardless of the circumstances they find themselves in.

Please help us to give back to a deserving person or family. Becky's Photography is offering a conest to offer a free portrait session and portrait order valued at $500 to the winning nominee. Help us give the gift of custom photography that can be treasured for a lifetime. Oh, and the person that nominates them also received a free photo session and a portrait order valued at $100. It's WIN-WIN!

The Rules -

Who can be nominated?
You can't nominate yourself, but the nominee can be anyone who has inspired you, given back or is just generally deserving of a year round reminder of their family's strength, beauty and love. The nomination can be due to financial hardship, but it doesn't have to be. The nominee must live in Avon, Ohio or the surrounding northeast Ohio area.

How can you nominate someone? Simply send us the person or family's name and the story of how they have been an inspiration to you along with contact information for both of you to Please be aware that we may share excerpts of these stories to inspire our readers, but will use first names only.

We'll be taking nominations through September 15th so get in that "Attitude of Gratitude" state of mind and start thinking about who you should nominate. We all know people that should be nominated. We guarantee it.

New Employee!

Hi! I'm Heidi. That's me in the picture to the left with my husband Bryan and our four children. The picture was taken last fall by Becky. Shortly after that photo shoot Becky and I met and discussed having me join her business. Just about a month ago I finally made the transition, and I'm loving working for Becky! No, I'm not a photographer (I couldn't even come close to the amazing quality of work that she does) - I'm the new marketing, sales, whatever Becky needs at the moment assistant. I was born and raised in Oberlin and several years ago my husband and I returned and built our home on the outskirts of town. We were blessed with the adoption of our sons Eli, Joey and Justin as newborns. Having been touched by adoption I'm a passionate advocate for it. Our daughter Lydia was our little surprise and she completes our family in a special way. With four small children life is always busy, but when I can take some time away I love to escape to the library in our house to read, and in cooler weather, to turn on the fireplace and read while sipping a hot cup of tea. I also enjoy cooking and baking for my family and others. I've been known to crank up the music to sing and dance around the house like a crazy fool with my kids, but typically am more reserved. I couldn't live without chocolate, my daily planner or nap time! It's lovely to meet you.

Oh, and now that I'm on board we're going to be getting more active in our blogging so stay tuned for a fun contest that we'll be posting soon!
