In the middle of a stressful morning, just a few days before Christmas, a package arrived in the mail, heavy and promising. I looked at the sender’s name and did a little happy dance. YAY! The box of goodies I had won in Ms. Toody Goo Shoes' blog giveaway had arrived, the giveaway called, the “Stress-buster” giveaway. Hallelujah and amen. Timing is everything and this box was right on time.
Like a kid, I unwrapped the package and lifted the lid on the adorable snowman box, the scent of lavender rising to greet me. Did I mention that lavender is one of my favorite scents?
Amy had written a personal note, thanking me for entering the contest and for reading her blog. If you don’t read her blog, you should click on over and browse through the quality posts that she offers throughout the year.
I borrowed this photo from Amy’s blog and you can see all of the things that I oohed and aahed over when I entered the giveaway, things that promote relaxation and finding that happy, contented place when the house feels a little crowded.
Thank you, Amy, for your generosity. This package has already brought me pleasure and I feel lucky to have won the grand prize. I think of you every time I read another page from the delightful book entitled, “Be Happy,” every time I color another page from the charming coloring book, every time I use the heavenly bath and body products, every time I drink the tea, nibble the chocolates, smell the amazing lavender calendar burning, and every time I see the important prompt: Laugh.
Friends in blogland ... this is just another reason why I enjoy the world of blogging—you encounter the nicest people.
Until next time, sweet friends, may the coming days find you relaxed and happy as we find ourselves right up against a brand new year.
