  19. I have no idea if your giveaway applies to non-US or Canada citizens but am coming out of lurkdom anyway. Your message sticks are too wonderful to pass up :-). It's tough to say what my favourite words are - but one of them has got be 'incandescent', for the image of luminous beauty it always seems to bring to mind and also just for the way it sounds. I also like 'hope' a lot. It's powerful and so very necessary in life.

  25. melanie,

    if i were to win any of your giveaways.i hope it would be this one. my reason for that statement is the struggle i and many others like myself go through each day just to try and see tomorrow,i have an incurable rare disease that most have either never heard of it,or are under the wrong idea of what the disease actually is and does to the person who has it.so with that said,my answer to your question,what are some of my favorite words. these are but,just a few:
    STRENGTH,EMPOWERMENT,COURAGE,HOPE,UNITY,OVER-COME,FAITH,WILLPOWER,FRIENDSHIP,BOND,LIFE,LIVE,DREAM,and LAUGHTER.
    these words along with a few others is what keeps me,and others like me[which by the way the others i speak of,are now friends,no family of mine]going each and every day.and, if i win this particular day's prize.
    i also plan to{if i win] take the pieces and divide then up and make several necklaces,
    possibly on seafaom green ball chains,after-
    which i will them send one to Shanna,Janie,
    Catherine,and keep one for myself.i guess
    you could say we are the 4 PWN's.
    thanks for the chance to win,and maybe the chance to give myself and my sisters a little inspiration to keep on fighting.
    lol.

  30. Hi, Melanie - two of my favorite words are "opportunity" and "discovery," especially when I can coordinate the time and mind-set (not always easy) to experience them together, as in: an opportunity for discovery, which often leads to "serendipity," another of my favorite words.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  43. My favorite words...
    "Lexicography." is at the top of the list, primarily because of the way it sounds, especially in this Samuel Johnson quote:
    "I am not so lost in lexicography as to forget that words are the daughters of earth, and that things are the sons of heaven."

    One of my favorites.

    I'm also a fan of "vortex" and "zaftig." It's all about verbalizing those uncommon letters...

  45. I like serene - it has a nice ring to it

  46. I love the word "inspire." i think it is everyone's duty to try to inspire someone, including themselves. i adore the word "nature." we are all connected to nature and it brings us to think of the miracles around us. yes i love the word "miracles." look around you..they are everywhere. everyone has their own miracle story. "kindness" is a great word. we all need to be kinder.
