I am in the habit of saving fortune cookie fortunes.
But until now, I have never called the Universe on one.
|I initially miss-read this and thought it said BIG things. All I could envision was an ACME Anvil...|
This one has been hanging around since July 5.
It didn't get lost.
(Okay, my husband found it by accident yesterday on my clip of things I want to remember and hung it on the calendar.)
Let's think about this.
Are we talking really good things?
Like One Million Dollars? A random contact from a publisher actually paying me to simultaneously write that novel and a travel show? A sudden painless fifteen pound weight-loss with subsequent toning? No traffic on the way to work and a nausea-producing smell free train ride?
Or are we talking more mundane 'Good Things'
Things like a phone call from my best friend from high school? Surprise flowers? A random compliment? An endearing exchange with a stranger? A chance meeting with one of my kids?
Maybe the fact that I got up this morning is my Good Thing.
Which means I have already peaked...although the text is in the plural...
I feel as though I should only expect the typical good things. Those things that we tend to take for granted. Perhaps this is the Universe's way of reminding me to be grateful for what I have and perhaps be happy going to bed tonight with the knowledge that I got one more day...
I don't want to sound ungrateful, Universe, but I could really that million bucks.
Here I am at 84, and it's fun to discover that my thank you to the universe is not all that different from yours. Love this!ReplyDelete
Thanks GmaJune! I am really a very grateful person - I have had such a wonderful life I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop! It is fun to dream big!!
PS I made pesto yesterday too!
So, the Universe did provide me with a good day at work and a delish left-over sandwich for dinner...Delete
Oh, and I made pesto after reading your comment about Pesto-palooza!!
I'm rooting for you and that million bucks. Come on, Lotto!ReplyDelete
But failing that, an ordinary bunch of good things is always welcome, isn't it?
I think I must count as one of my good things, seeing your smiling face here and at YOUR blog site! Happy to hear you are doing well!! And yes, a bunch of regular ordinary things are really just fine.Delete
Just yesterday my husband got a fortune that said "A sudden change in plans will lead to good fortune." I'll keep you posted....Not holding my breath.ReplyDelete
