Have you ever did something, and yet be wondering the whole while you are doing it; why you were doing it?
Have you ever done that and then later, the answer comes to you so clearly why you did it?
Let me show you an example of what I am talking about….
Back before Wyatt was even thought about..back when the specialist all said Amanda had a snowball’s chance in ‘you-know-where’ of getting pregnant….I was shopping at a Dollar Tree store…You know..one of those stores where everything in it is a dollar or less?
Well, I came down the isle and reached over into a basket and picked up a dollar pregnancy test….and put it in my shopping cart. I paid for all I got and once in my car, I starting wondering what in the world did I need a pregnancy test for? Amanda couldn’t get pregnant ( and was also on birth control pills to help with her monthly’s)
And here I was ; over 50 years old with nothing in my stomach, but my stomach…all the rest being removed over 10 years earlier…so I knew darn well I couldn’t use the thing! BUT YET, I HAD BOUGHT IT….
Well we all know that the dollar pregnancy test was used and it told us that my precious grandbaby Wyatt was coming. A COINCIDENCE? I don’t think so….
The other day I went grocery shopping…and as I walked into the grocery store…the first thing I saw was a bag of Hershey Kisses wrapped in Christmas foil….and without thinking; I picked that bag up and put it in my buggy. Just as soon as I placed it in there, I immediately reached back in and took it out.
Oh, I wanted that candy soooooo bad….You see, since the surgery my appetite is off and I am not eating…. But like a little kid…. I wanted that candy. But I did not have the money to spend on candy…we had to have food.
I have not worked since Oct. 25th…and since the BBQ does not hold a check in the hole; that was also my last paycheck. So…no; I didn’t buy the candy…and I felt so bad…but no one even knew.
Today…I hear a knock on my door, I open it, and look down and see a box. Now, I knew Lori, my online friend had sent it, because she had alerted me that she was sending Wyatt a gift. I was so excited…Her daughter Tracy had embroidered an adorable bib for Wyatt with his name and birth date on it…a keepsake for sure. Among other things…Lori had also sent several little cute winter outfits along. There was so many wonderful gifts in that box….even food!
And amid it all was… a huge bag of HERSHEY KISSES…WRAPPED IN CHRISTMAS FOIL. It was then that I broke down and cried like a baby.
When she emailed me later, she told me how while she was shopping, she had ended up on the candy isle….searching for what she didn’t know….but how once she saw the HERSHEY KISSES they seem to ‘ jump out at her ’….and she bought them…and mailed them to me….
COINCIDENCE? I DON’T THINK SO…THERE IS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS….
I choose to believe that there is a Higher Power than we mere mortals…One Who knows that sometimes..
It can be the little things that we may think are insignificant,
That will make a world of difference in a person’s life.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
