This morning I must have had four emails all shouting the same thing:  YOU’VE WON–CLAIM YOUR PRIZE!  For a few minutes I was agitated to see these in my emails and I quickly deleted instead of opening.

Then I have to admit I began to smile, you see I really am a winner. I’m a winner because I have a family that loves me and likes to be with me. I have wonderful friends that make my life blessed just to hear their voices and see their smiles. I’m a winner because everyday I get to see the beauty all around me and yes because I live in this wonderful country, even though we all don’t see eye to eye, we are free to express that.

Today is my birthday, so I am especially a winner, you see, todays date is 11-11-11. That day won’t come again for 100 years.
