Surprise!


Surprises, whether pleasant or not (of course, I'd rather get the pleasant ones) are the least of my favorites. I have never been keen on such because not too long ago, I got a surprise which changed my life forever. It wasn't the kind of surprise one would like to get especially while at work but just like what a surprise is intended to be, it just came. That surprise was a bad one, one that I'd wish I never had been bequeathed by the Higher Force.

Few days ago, I got a phone call. I normally don't pick up calls in my mobile from numbers I do not know nor listed in my phone book. This one call was different. I was at work when the mobile rang and I just glanced and thought, "Hmmmm, who might be calling me this early?" I answered and the man on the opposite line was a pleasant guy asking how I was and I asked how I may help him. He told me, "Oh no, how (the name of the shopping mall!!!) might help you" and he laughed a little. I asked why. Then comes the nice surprise. He told me that I won the raffle. It wasn't the major prize because that was yet to be drawn! hahaha... However, I won a cash prize and no matter how small the amount was compared to the major prize, the fact was, I won! Yey! I thanked the Lord and called my husband and daughter right away to share the news because it's not so often that I get calls like that. Now, that's the kind of surprise I'd desire to have...
