A couple weeks ago, I was really depressed and had to get OUT and find my way around, so I went for a drive through town. That’s when I realized how knowing your way around a new place will help you acclimate, and on that journey through direction, I bought a raffle ticket.
I was coming out of Walmart, and a little girl approached me to buy a $1.00 raffle ticket. It was to raise money for her softball team. She was SO cute, so I looked in my purse for a dollar and handed it to her.
After I wrote my contact info down, I reached into my purse and handed her a five dollar bill and said, “I don’t want any tickets for this. This is for all the “nos” you might get.”” She said, “Thank you” and smiled. Well, I won that raffle.
Yesterday, I received a call proclaiming me the winner and met with a woman to pick up my prize: a 4th of July wreath with thirty scratchers on it! So, I’ve officially won my first raffle in Texas and the prize was a wreath of my favorite holiday.
