That's amazing, Alix. As someone already said, go buy a lottery ticket.

Its just good karma coming your way for something small but meaningful you did ,don't expect more (which I know you don't) it doe's not work like that. When its supposed to come it comes. Keep doing good things its about what comes from your heart no payback expected and I know you are not even thinking payback but just being a good and kind person whether its a person or creature , its not about what the reward is in the end but just being kind and sharing. The reward will come when its is supposed to. No more no less.

Just by telling this story Alix, it makes me realize yet again, that nothing happens simply by accident. You are deserving of these, no question,good for you and enjoy the music

LOL It must run in the "family" sis! You won two ipod shuffles and we won 2 sets of tickets to a hockey game and 2 chances to win a house! Lottery tickets don't work too well for me, but I still try now and then!

Thanks all! Those are some lovely words and I'm just a bit choked up by them. Barbara, YAY! Thats some cool stuff! I'm off to work now, one iPod is charged and the other one is charging up. Now I just have to figure out how to download music into them. Doesn't look too tough.
