I usually don't win anything. In fact the last thing I won in my life was back in about 5th or 6th grade. My Mom entered a drawing to win a year's worth of free groceries at a local grocery store's grand opening. They were also giving away a 3 ft. high stuffed Pink Panther. Mom got a call that she'd won. Imagine her disappointment when she found out that she'd won the Pink Panther instead of the groceries. My sister and I were elated. We'd take turns letting Pink Panther sleep on our beds and played with him like he was a giant doll of sorts.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago. Alison held a drawing on her blog for two beautiful cups with scenery from Glacier National Park. I commented and won!! It came in the mail with a nice note and I was thrilled to have morning coffee in my new cup. Thank you Alison for making my day!! Maybe I'll try to have a drawing soon just to pay it forward. As for the Pink Panther?? I still wonder what became of him. I have a feeling he probably wound up in the bin going to Goodwill years later. Maybe somebody is loving him now.
