A Reward for Gratitude
I purchased The Secret DVD and book about 3 weeks ago; it was like a bright light being switched on in my head. One of the most touching aspects covered was that of gratitude and its rewards. My wife and I care for our severely disabled and terminally ill son. As you can imagine it is very hard work both mentally and physically, but you do so without any thoughts, other than that of total love and devotion to him. In addition to our efforts we have a very good relationship with the various departments and agencies who help and support us.
This story relates to a Doctor with the muscular dystrophy team who had helped us resolve a particular problem we were having with our son’s condition. When the problem was overcome I e-mailed her expressing our sincerest thanks and gratitude and how the world was a truly richer place because of people like her. Whilst writing to her I was really aware of my intense gratitude towards her. Three days later she e-mailed me back thanking us for the kind words, expressing how much they meant to her.
The same afternoon I received a phone call out of the blue from America. Three years ago we sold our holiday home in Florida as it was becoming more and more difficult to use it as our son could no longer fly. The accountants dealt with all the finances and taxes, and so ended our love affair with Florida. Or so I thought! The phone call was from the accountancy firm we had used. They informed us that they had been going through their old files for an audit, and found ours. For some reason they had looked at our file out of curiosity. On doing so they picked up that the U.S tax man owed us some money from the original sale, but the time period for claiming the money was only one week away. Anyway, after a number of phone calls/faxes and Fedex packs, we are $9,000.00 the better.
This is The Secret and the universe rewarding us for intense gratitude. Use the gratitude stone, and above all else BELIEVE.
