Remember that I joined another bookstore (National Book Store) online contest? (Sorry, I join a lot) I was excited and I am eager to have many likes since the first day. But then I felt tired and tried to relax a bit, after hours of relaxing, I checked my LIKE status, I am already left behind by almost 100+ Likes! I tried to keep up and but then, it is not enough. I decided not to pursue anymore this contest because it is impossible to keep it up and I felt really tired of asking random people to ask favors for this. So in short, I gave it up, its not really a loss since I won already last May P2,000 worth of books from Powerbooks.
The last day, I am really sure that I lost that contest so I prayed to God and thanked His Blessings in my life, and also, albeit I am lost, there is still small hope on winning the NBS Choice. I put on my status in Facebook this:
I’ll just keep on praying and have faith.
Then I left home to visit my grandmother that day to forget it. I spent time talking to grandma because I really missed her! Then we got home and totally ignored our computer. I watched TV, random DVDs and then Late that afternoon, I opened my laptop and checked emails and also the… I didn’t know what happened next but I remember myself screaming and hugging my dad because of this:
Oh c’mon! I felt really blessed! I really did NOT totally expected to win the NBS Choice! But God really works in really mysterious way! He’s so awesome, right?! I can’t still believe it but yes, it is true!
Plans for the P2,000 GCs: I’ll use it on September — because there is Manila International Book Fair!
God is sooooooo good!
