So guess my friends what happened today?
I went to the mailbox and there were no bills inside! There was this big brown envelope where all the bills usually are. Well you can imagine I had to study it hard and wonder if it had been placed in the correct mailbox. I was puzzled because it was addressed to me but I didn't recognize the sender. Not at first anyways, then it hit me! Back at the beginning of the A-Z challenge I had entered a competition to define education. I thought, "well ok, why not." Afterall you guys know by now that I am a writing addict and this tickled my keyboard fingers. I almost raced into the house to open my brown envelope winners surprise. Just think, I started blogging and now I was payed for it! Payday!
Maybe you guys think I am weird, but it was a big deal for me. You are witnessing someone who never wins anything and usually gives away the lottery ticket to the kid selling it. I love presents so usually I leave them in front of me for awhile before I open them. I like the anticipation, do any of you guys do that? I sat and stared at that envelope for probably 5 minutes, then I couldn't take it anymore. Usually I last longer than that.
Inside this brown paper was the most beautiful handstitched sunflower table runner and a sweet card from a even sweeter woman. I love it! Here is Lindas blog and the competition I entered. So now I am thinking about Karma and trying to figure out what I can give back to the blog world. What do you think? I am as stated before not so keen on prizes and awards. I do however love to give. Hmmmm, got to think on this one. Anyways, thank you Linda I love my Sunflowers!
