The winner of Aphrodite is ...

Sarah Miles! My winner from the 
Summer Splash Blog Hop

Sarah has won a beautiful statue of the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, also known as Venus. The drawing was random, but there were some wonderful comments ... unfortunately, the comment area was having problems, so most people wrote to me. Thank you, lovely ladies, for sharing your thoughts with me. I'm sure Aphrodite is sending love to all of you.

Here are some of the comments. I won't include names, because some are quite personal:

So, I wouldn't say that I *deserve* it, but maybe it would send some love my way.  I have health issues, which started up while I was dating my ex.  I loved him, figured we'd be together for a long time.  A few months after I started getting significantly worse, he ended the relationship.  Never gave me a reason, and from what I hear he's told others, he's made up one for them (as I know it's not true).  My assumption is that it's just difficult dating someone who is ill, but he doesn't want to say that and sound like a bad person.  I'm hesitant to look into dating now that I'm free, as I don't want to get attached to someone that's just going to get fed up with me.  Could use a little help from the lovely Venus/Aphrodite in finding someone that can look past how these chronic issues have handicapped me.  I'm not just a sick person, and I hate being boiled down into that one little bucket.  Plus, who doesn't love being in love?  It's missed.

I'm sorry I had to email you my comment, but I couldn't get it to post. I believe I should win the statue of the goddess because each of us should have a piece of beauty in the room to brighten their lives and remind them of their youth. Aphrodite/Venus is the perfect goddess to remind me of happier/healthier times in my life as I struggle toward regaining some modicum of health. She could stand watch and encourage me to regain control, while reminding me to laugh and enjoy the sun. Her beauty can stand sentinel over my struggles and remind me of the beauty I will miss if I don't go outside and enjoy the pool in the the summer, the breeze in my face, the ground beneath my feet. All the beauty of the earth is there, if only I remember to see it. Aphrodite, Goddess of Love, can reignite the flame within my heart. 

Thank you for the chance to win Aphrodite  "The Goddess of Erotic Love":  In my wiccan class we are studying different Goddesses and this would be great to have for my Altar that I have created towards her for more Erotic love in my life.
 I bet you didn't expect that one. lol

Once again, I so appreciate all of you who entered the contest. It was a lot of fun, and I plan to participate again next year.
