Challenge #22--Midway Reflection & Voting Reminder

Hello everyone! We have reached the midway point of Challenge #22. The theme for this challenge is all about UNIQUENESS.  

Sadly I do not have a my regular introspection for you this month. It has been a rather difficult week. During the first half of the week I was ill and then we were also dealing with the fact that my mother-in-law had been diagnosed with influenza and pneumonia. Sadly her heart was not strong enough and she died in the early hours of Sunday morning. She will be missed by her 14-children, 36-grand-children, 59-great grand-children and 7-great-great grand-children.

While it is a time of mourning for our family, my team has worked very hard to come up with projects for our midway so the show must go on!

As a reminder, here are the watermarks and links for the wonderful images that the team worked with for the midway.

Also, I know that the participants would love for you to go and pay them a visit.  Remember we're creating a Path of Positivity to follow one project at a time and we'd love to see you somewhere on that route even if it is just by leaving a comment on an entry from someone who has touched you somehow with their project and/or post!

If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab and all the details you need to know in order to participate, in the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog).
