A Little Intervention
Suddenly, a customer interjected, "I don't mean to pry, but I take XYZ. Maybe that is what you want," she continued, "What is it for, I might ask?"
"Brain function," we answered in unison.
A third voice chimed in. We turned to see a short, dark curly-haired clerk shake her head, "You don't want that (XYZ). It's a hormone." We all laughed and the reason that I called the doctor in the first place was to guarantee that I was purchasing the correct product with the proper dosage, since our local drug store did not carry the item that was ordered by the doctor a week ago.
I am not sure why I looked back at the woman and her husband comparing the multitude of choices of Vitamin C. I heard the tall man mumble something. Recognizing him first, I looked back at the "tried to be helpful" woman. She stepped toward me.
"I think I know you," I began.
"Barb?" I just tried to call your home. We were hoping that we could see you and Jerry!" Friends from away who had stayed with us multiple times. We share a common Faith. Hugs, laughter and the realization that life unfolds as it is intended. No coincidence here. Just a little divine intervention.
