The week might not have started out well, but I found my rainbow after the storm! Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised when the rainbow started to make itself visible to me in the form of a brown UPS delivery uniform. Back on September 23, 2009 I received an email from author and blogger Mayra Calvani. She had held a book giveaway, sponsored by Hachette Book Group, for Hispanic Heritage Month. I entered and I won! I won not one or two or even three books, but five!
Mayra Calvani has given me a bigger gift than I originally expected. I was so thrilled when I received word that I won! I haven't won anything since a Christmas poster that my teacher raffled off back in the fourth grade! No kidding! Oh, how I was so excited the morning I opened my email and read the words: "Hey, Anna! You won the Hispanic Month Book Giveaway! Congrats!" It felt like fourth grade all over again. I immediately phoned my husband and shared my good news!
