It was kinda weird, though. It all started with an email asking me to post a text link for a website selling dresses. A representative for the said website asked if I could put their link on my other blog. I agreed, I thought it was just a simple way of helping businesses spread their wings on the Internet.
They couldn’t exchange links with me, but the rep said they were going to pay me yearly for the ad. And the payment’s quite nice.
Whoa! That’s the first time anyone’s ever going to pay me for just posting a simple link text. And no clicks needed. I guess all I need to do is keep my other blog alive.
Interesting. Ain’t that a pleasant surprise.
When I was in high school, one of my teachers taught us the prayer for a pleasant surprise. Until now, I continue to pray for it, and there are indeed times when I receive one (maybe I do get it always, sometimes I just don’t know that’s the surprise).
I want to share the prayer to you. Just try it. You have to say this prayer every Tuesday, anytime before noon.
Say three Our Father, three Hail Mary, and three Glory Be. After which, you say, “Dear Jesus, through the intercession of St. Anne, please grant me a pleasant surprise.”
I don’t remember if it had a longer version, this was all I could recall. But when I say this short prayer, I feel it works. Who knows, you might get your pleasant surprise, too.
