when you have the winning feeling

When you hear those words, "You've won!" it's a little unbelievable.

Firstly, there's the cynism. Yeah, right. What do I have to do to win this? Then there's the disbelief. You mean me? Surely not.

But then there are times when it happens for real.

Last week I won something for the first time in my life. Okay, it wasn't the lottery, but it was a DVD that I can enjoy with my family, thanks to Joni and Anya.

You see Joni has all these fantastic giveaways on her blog. I don't usually enter anything, but I figured to win it, you have to be in it. (I guess the same goes with the Lottery?). It was to win a Fantasia DVD for my kids. And well, I'd do anything for them. Plus I've never seen the Disney classic.

It was such a great DVD. At first I didn't know what the kids would think. But I didn't have to worry for long. As soon as it was over, the boys wanted to watch it again. How great is that? Classical music put to animation, and nothing more. Thanks Disney!

Thanks too, to Joni for your lovely giveaways (to visit Joni, click here). It just goes to show that there's a chance of winning if you actually enter!

Have you won anything? How did it make you feel?
