Funny things happen....
I don't usually mention this, but sometimes when I think of things, they happen. This freaks me out @ times & I keep it to myself, but I'm noticing it more & more.
Sometimes when there are things I want, but don't really pursue them, they show up.
I wanted to treat myself to a nice necklace & pendant with something positive on it. Looked online, but didn't really see anything, so I never gave it another thought. Couple of days later, I went to a 2nd hand shop & found the most lovely necklace w/2 pendants - one said "dream", and the other said "prosperity." It was like it was waiting for me. Plus is was WAY cheaper than anything I'd seen. I now wear it.
After reading a post written by my friend, Sharon @ Chaos Ranch, where she mentioned this book, I added it to my Goodreads list. Be darned if while @ the library yesterday, the book was sitting on display. I now have it. (Sharon, this book has your name written all over it. I think of you at just the sight of it, dear lady!).
I'm the middle of reading "The Help" which is a fabulous book. I wasn't nearly done, yet it was due w/no returns allowed. I told the library lady this & she said, 'oh no - it's a great book, you must finish it', so she broke all rules & renewed it. For me!! I came home, settled into a corner of the couch & dove back into it like a cozy blanket.
While on line visiting a new blogger, I noticed she had the most beautiful, relaxing music playing @ her site. Checked it out & it was the old jazz of bassist Charlie Haden & pianist Kenny Barron. I made a mental note to check them out since old jazz is my love, and what do you think was @ the library? Yeah, you know. I now have it in rotation.
I really needed a new purse (I'm known to carry the same on until it falls apart), but didn't really have much $$. Walked into Target, and there was the cutest purse for on $13.00. I now have it on my shoulder.
Oh, I could on & on with this!! Say what you will, but I'm taking these things as simple blessings from God. Sometimes I think, God wouldn't be bothered w/these little trivial things, but it happens so often that I'm going with it.
And these 'funny things' make me happy!
