Paying it Forward

I have been eyeing this class of Christie Tomlinson's for sometime now.  I have wanted to take it so badly, but have resisted wanting to be responsible with spending (you know the whole stay at home mom on a budget thing).  Last week an incredible lady purchased 10, TEN, T.E.N. spots for the class to pay it forward to other woman.  Her act spurred Christie into offering 20 spots on her blog as a way of paying it forward.   How amazing is that!  So I entered my name on her blog and today I saw that I was chosen as one of the winners!  I have never won anything on a blog before and I really wanted to take this class, so you can imagine how happy I was.  Could this story get any better?  Yes it can.  I have a freind who also really wanted to take the class and like me was being budget conscious (may I say being budget conscious blows). So I asked Christie if my very good freind Rachel could take the class instead of me.  I won the spot because of a pay it forward spirit, and lets just say that spirit is catching.  It felt really good to do that and I think I made my dear freind very happy.  Could this story get any better? Yes it can.  Christie being the incredible and amazing woman she is GAVE US BOTH SPOTS in the class.  I was floored by her act of kindness.  I had goosebumps for a good 30 min afterward.  I called my mom and squealed with delight.  So a huge thank-you to the woman who purchased 10 spots out of the kindness of her heart, and the incredibly kind Christie who kept the giving going. 
I am so excited to sit back with my cup of tea tonight and delve into the class videos.  eeeee.
