We are up to Blessing #13. Normally 13 is seen as an unlucky number, but it is going to be a lucky number for one of you! I will tell you all about that at the end though.
If you've been looking at my Project Life pictures, you can obviously tell that I love Chickfila. So today, I will calculate them as a blessing and tell you why I love them so.
I love Chickfila for so many reasons. They have the most unique fast food fries. They are closed on Sundays. (Honestly, I love and hate this all at the same time. It all depends on how hungry I am on Sunday.) They have fantastic service. They really are a little taste of home for me up here.
However, the main reason I love Chickfila is their work with children in the foster system. When I was in the eighth grade, I met Truett Cathy as he took a kid in my class to his first day of school. The child he was with lived in a WinShape home. Mr. Cathy introduced him to everyone in our class and gave us all coupons for free Chickfila sandwiches. Even as a teenager, I was impressed by Mr. Cathy taking time to do that. Now as an adult, I enjoy supporting a business that seeks to help the helpless.

Okay, so now that I'm done with my Chickfila love fest, let me explain why #13 is lucky.
One of my favorite things about blogs is giveaways. I have won a couple things from different blogs, and I love the excitement of winning. As a part of our Lankford family Christmas project, (I'll post about that later) we decided to giveaway a $10 Chickfila gift card to someone. You can win it! You can have up to three entries. Make sure you leave a different comment for each entry. Here's how:
Entry 1: To enter leave a comment telling me why you love Chickfila.
You can also have two additional entries just make sure you leave a separate comment for each entry.
Entry 2: Become a follower of Calculating Blessings. If you already are a follower that counts too.
Entry 3: "Like" Calculating Blessings on Facebook. If you already "like" Calculating Blessings (all two of you) that counts too. The facebook page isn't much now, but I want to do more with it. I want to make it more interactive than the blog. Where everyone can Calculate a blessing.
The contest ends on Sunday night at 12:00 AM. I'll pick a winner using random.org and announce it on the blog on Monday! Good Luck!
***Note: Because I just started the blog many of my readers are my family members, so there is a good chance the winner may be a family member of mine. The only family member I've banned from entering is Shad. (Yes, he wanted to enter.) He loves contests, but he has to sit this one out.
Sorry Shad. We'll go to Chickfila this weekend.
