The Jackpot


When I was a little girl, my mom bought me a pack of Bubbalicious Bubble Gum.  I opened up the package and on one of the individually wrapped pieces of gum were the words "YOU WIN" stamped all over it.  How excited I was!  I won a free Barbie Doll and I can still remember going with my mom to the store to redeem my prize and pick out a brand new Barbie, a Hawaiin one with long, shiny black hair and a hula skirt.

As a teenager I called up a local radio station to request song be played. 
I had no idea that there was a contest going on and I got put on air as the lucky caller.
  I won a DJ Jazzie Jeff and the Fresh Prince "Summertime" CD. 

A couple years ago, I was watching a Portland news show and they said the 10th caller gets free tickets to the RV Show.  We love going to those so I thought, why not try and give them a call.  I won! 
And yes, I'm one of those people that gets all excited screaming and laughing... on air. 
We drove to Portland on the day of the RV show and stopped by the TV Station (KATU),  unloaded all the kids and I proudly walked in to claim my prize. 

Sometimes I get real lucky and win all the bonus tickets out of the Monkey game at Chuck-E-Cheese. 
In fact, the kids beg me to play it now so that I can win a whole bunch of tickets for them.


BUT ...



I really hit the JACKPOT

with him.



Thank you, Lord.
