There’s a phenomenon in my home, that I’m sure many others can relate to.
Along with the mystery of the missing one sock in the laundry pile, forks also go missing in my house.
What the fork, where do they go?
I was shopping the other day and was drawn into one of those kitchen stores; stocked with pretty kitchen-ey type gadgets. I picked up a set of forks. It pained me to buy them when I had perfectly good forks just months ago; so I put them back on the shelf.
As I was washing the same 4 forks so we could eat supper; I inwardly made fun of my frugal self for not buying the forks. Later that day, I went downstairs to organize my unfinished basement turned sweat-freely-in-home-gym. In the corner I spied a wooden box; like there was a spot light on it.
I opened it slowly, like it was a treasure chest. I realized it was a beautiful cutlery set gifted to us by my parents on our wedding day. The weirdest part of about this is I swore I already dumped the whole set into my everyday drawer years ago. I even wrote about it. Maybe I only used half of them; but I was staring in shock at a complete set of beautiful silverware.
I asked for a fork.
I found not just any fork; but a set of fancy forks.
Perception is everything: there was a part of me that lamented not using those fancy forks back when I was married; I am only now breaking out the “good china” now that I’m divorced? Oh the irony.
I think the real message here is within asking and receiving.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye
shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you
What I’ve learned these past three years is that my prayers/affirmations/thoughts turn into things.
Some small…like a fork; and some huge like careers and a happy home built on love with my children.
Like that time when I broke a tooth; which turned into a banking job.
Stay with me….
I cracked a molar eating ice. I don’t know why my molar couldn’t handle some ice chips, but it was my favourite molar. The one that does the most chewing. Of the meats.
At the time; I had no benefits. And that one molar ended up costing me $3,200.
It was a complicated molar.
Oh the things you do for your favourite molar.
That week; I received some help from my parents via a card in mail with a handwritten note and a CQ.
They are still my tooth fairy.
What was an amazing blessing to me is that I didn’t ask them for help. They just intuitively knew that I was very much struggling at that time. Thank you
Three weeks after that; I got a job offer at a bank. I had never considered working at a bank; but a friend approached me knowing my skill set. She told me it came along with benefits. For the teeth. 😉
I had a huge smile as the day before, I had also set a goal to learn more about investments and finances. I had even looked into taking courses and said aloud “bring me opportunities to learn about finances.”
I was gifted a learning opportunity which came with benefits.
This is how it works in my life lately.
I trust and surrender.
I have confidence in myself and my abilities.
I stay the course and work hard.
Focus on the good.
I’m taken care of.
I have all that I need.
Skeptics may say; you always had fancy forks in your basement…
But I choose to see the magic within Synchronicity.
Beautiful timing within need.
Thanks for the forks.
From my heart to yours,
