LifeClass & special giveaway

A few weeks ago, after I discovered Whispers of Promise and began to journal about being blessed, I came home to find an envelope in the mailbox from Oprah.  As in Oprah Winfrey.  I had no idea what it was.  For a split second, I thought maybe she was coming back to do her "Favorite Things" show a month late, and I was finally invited {after all, I emailed her 47 times a year asking if I could be in the audience for that show}. Once that fantasy escaped my mind, I decided I should end the suspense and open the envelope.  This is what I found:
I vaguely remember signing up on for this when I was home on maternity leave last May when her final episodes were airing.  My mind was probably in such a blur that I must have registered & never gave it a second thought until it showed up in the mailbox eight months later.  It goes along with her Lifeclass, but I don't have time right now to keep up with that.  I did check it out, is full of inspiration & daily life tools.  My favorite is 35 Little Acts of Kindness {which deserves a post of its own - I hope to write one soon}.
I know I mentioned here that I normally don't believe in making resolutions {for myself - if you choose  to -  knock yourself out!} to kick off a new year. I still don't.  But when I found that book and journal together, I made a promise to myself that I will journal frequently {maybe not every single night, but as much as I can} about something I've been blessed with that day.
That particular day, I was blessed with receiving something I didn't even really know I was I decided to pass it on to one of you.  Here is your chance to win a journal to record your thoughts - whatever they might be.  Just leave a comment  at the end of this post about something that has blessed you & you'll be entered to win Oprah's LifeClass diary.  Maybe you'll journal about something that blesses you.  Maybe you'll join Oprah's LifeClass.  You might use it to plan the next special occasion in your world {whatever it may be}.  Maybe it will sit on a stack of pretty, blank journals until you find the right words.  The possibilities are endless.  For an extra entry, "like" CandidCollections on Facebook & leave a comment on our wall.  Good luck & be blessed :)
