Renee rented the movie The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio & she let me borrow it last night. I stayed up way too late to watch it, but am so glad I did.

You can go here to the Evelyn Ryan website.
I love that this is a true story. I love the way Evelyn Ryan treated her family and made them feel special. I love that she was mostly hapy. I love that she was creative. I love her jingles that allowed her to thrive. I love the excitement in the house when she would win a contest. I love the way she perservered and could always make something from nothing. Her husband was not always what he could or should have been, but she didn’t let that get her down. I mean, she had 10 children to nourish & shelter.
You should really check this out if you haven’t already. It has really touched me. I want to treat my kids like Evelyn Ryan treated her children: always with a kind word, a sweet heart & respect.
