Bloggy Giveaway!!!




My very first Blogging Contest!!! I'm pretty excited...and I hope you are too. I'm giving away a book that I discovered at the bookstore...it was on sale, and hey I'm cheap!! and I thought maybe I needed a little joy!!! I seem to be lacking joy and happiness...I get too wrapped up in my own little world and forget to look at all the GOOD in my life. Maybe you do, too?? Anyway, I bought the book and brought it home, and it's been sitting on the shelf for a while. I do that a lot, don't you??

Then, a few months later I made another trip to the bookstore and lo and behold, "oh cool, I think I could learn something from that book, and it's cheap!!" I get home and I put my "new" book on the shelf....right next to the SAME book that I had bought earlier and forgot all about. Sooooo, I now have 2 copies of the same book....so NOW I Get to "Giveaway" a book that can give you a little perspective in getting your joy/happiness back.

I've been reading it while in the bathroom (ya know that is the only place to read if you want peace and quiet!!)and I have been getting some of my perspective back and seeing things from God's point of view, using humor and some great story telling. Not only have I been getting some new and improved perspective, I've been gaining some joy and happiness!




So if you need some joy and happiness and would like to enter my little contest and then receive my "extra copy" of this little book then leave me a comment and on Friday night sometime before midnight, Central time I'll choose a comment and send you the book via USPS, next week!!

Cactusflower said...

Hey, are we related? 'Cause this is exactly my problem -- before I go to the book store I always have to look at my book shelves again to make sure that I don't buy another copy of something I already have and love.

If only my family would understand this concept. When I'm happy, everything is wonderful, when I'm not...things stink.

Luckily I live with a bunch of comedians. Even when things stink, they make me laugh.

Sarah said...

I have a 5 1/2 y.o., a 3 3/4 y.o., a 2 y.o., one we lost in between, and I'm due Oct. 2008 with the next one. This book sounds right up my alley. Provided that you're giving away the copy that was on your bookshelf, not in your bathroom. Did you see that Seinfeld episode, where George tried to return a book he took into the bathroom? Anyway...

Thanks for the chance to win! :-)

I think it is funny that God's point of view is of you on the toilet. Sure changes the perspective!

Skye Lee said...

I read the book title outloud to my husband and he said "ain't that the truth"! I guess maybe I need a book like this, maybe I have been too grouchy lately?
