"Come and listen to a story about a
A poor mountaineer, barely kept her family fed,
Then one day she was shootin' at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin' crude.
Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea."
Okay well it's not exactly oil.
Or black gold.
Or Texas tea for that matter.
And, come to think of it, I didn't really even shoot at anything.
But I did receive a very exciting surprise here in Crazyville.
I won a contest.
The girl who never wins anything.
Well, if you don't count the book I won for being a homeschooling dinosaur. But I digress.
Anyway, my bloggy friend Mari at the Mari's Morning Room blog announced about a giveaway that was going on at TitleTrakk.com.

So, my bloggy buddies, what can you learn from this post today? Never ever give up. I have entered many contests and never won a thing. But, I didn't let that stop me. And finally, my persistence paid off.
Of course, you should apply this persistence to all areas of your life, not just giveaways. But giveaways sure are nice, amen? ;)
When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
