It takes two hours for a snowflake to fall from cloud to earth. Can't you just see its slow peaceful decent?-Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Reading this, I snapped the book closed, and without thought clasped my hands together as if in prayer and sighed. The discovery of this miracle made me stop in wonderment. Literally, it took my breath away. I stared into nothingness and felt the awe. I mean I really felt it. For some reason, I looked out the window. On cue, (no joke) puffy snow flakes were lightly falling. Air catching under each, the decent was slow and peaceful. Moments later it stopped.
Rosenthal writes about serendipity which she seems to equate with coincidence. Serendipity woke me early having checked FB, a friend posted an article claiming that research shows eating chocolate cake for breakfast is good for the brain and for the waistline. I was all over that. Before sunrise and before I downed my first almond milk latte, I had fork-full by fork-full indulged in a wedge of leftover birthday cake.
If you like something, you tend to be on the lookout for it. And if you're on the lookout for it, you tend to find it, or it-Yoo-hoo! Over here!-finds you. And so it goes, for me, with serendipity and coincidence. It's something I like, so it's something I notice and attract. -Amy Krouse Rosenthal
This morning, serendipity found me, and I am over the moon excited for what might become today and tomorrow. I think of serendipity as miracles, however small. Notice, attract, repeat. Notice, attract, repeat. I will be on the lookout, will you?
