David and I will be on an all-expensed paid trip to sunny California to watch the Rose Bowl Parade!
No we didn’t win the lottery or rob a bank to pay for such an excursion….I won the “creative challenge” at my work!
Yes me, the left-brained, numbers girl, won a right-brained contest…nothing short of a miracle, I know
Let me explain…
Each year the Rose Bowl Parade has a float that honors organ and tissue donation across the country. Each year my work sends a donor/recipient family to walk with the float and two employeese to help with the final touches on the float. One of the employees is chosen by a drawing. The other employee must submit a creative work that communicates what donation means to him/her. I chose to compete and spent many hours in prayer trying to come up with something meaningful.
I used a lot of pictures to communicate what donation means to me and I don’t have a release to post the picture mosiac that I made on the internet so you will have to ask me to email it to you if you want to see my work of art! 🙂 Nevertheless, the panel selected my picture as the best and that is why we have been blessed with a free trip to Pasadena.
Thank you Lord!
