Thought it would be fun to know if there were any prizes you won that were "the right thing at the right time"?

For instance, my daughter had been needing a new mattress, both because of back problems and because hers was just way too old. We planned to get one as her main Christmas gift (not the most fun gift for a teen girl!). Just before I needed to get it ordered to have it delivered by Christmas, got an email from a blog giveaway I had entered and learned I had won a new organic mattress- Just what we needed and at just the right time! I credit it as a blessing from God but y'all take it as you will...

Anything like that ever happen to you?

Back in 2007, a few months after joining ST, I won a 42" Plasma TV from a UPS sweeps.  Up to that point, I'd only ever had the old CRT style tvs and ours had died.  My in laws gave us their old CRT tv and the color had just gone out on it when I won the new falt screen tv.  It was delivered by UPS just in time for a big sporting event I like to watch so it was a timely win all around!  BTW, the tv is still working great for us!  One of my favorite wins ever.

Thanks for this lovely question and the answers that are sure to follow.  I feel like all of my wins have excellent timing, but it will be fun to see other answers.
