pay it forward...

Morning Y'all!
Hope you're weekend's been a good one and that you're taking time to just relax and enjoy.
A few days ago I won a contest over at Chronicles of a Country Girl, which is kind of funny because immediately after that, she won my contest here! lol Anyway... she stated that she wasn't exactly sure what she would be sending as a prize, which added to the excitement - you know, getting something that is a total surprise, I love it!
So I kind of put it all in the back of my mind because it's been a little busy around here, and then yesterday this package arrives and I can't think for the life of me what it could possibly be. It said it was a print on the box so I opened it very carefully, still wondering what in the world it was, because I hadn't ordered anything lately. But as soon as I opened it, I knew exactly where it came from... It was a print of a beautiful picture that I'd commented on at her website. Isn't it gorgeous? I can't wait to get it framed and hung up. I was having a pretty awful day when I opened this and it just reminded me that no matter how hard things get in life, there is still beauty to be found and that we should always be looking upward and not inward...
Thank you so much for the wonderful prize Country Girl, I will treasure it always!

So now, in the spirit of Paying it Forward, I will be giving something away to the first three people who comment on this post! Good luck everyone! Oh, and just one simple rule, you have to agree to do the same thing if you win.

Tiffany, I am so glad you like it and that it came when you least expected it! It's nice to get things in the mail other than invoices, isn't it?

I found out about this contest from a fellow blogger and it's just fun to participate. Take care now!
