This is such a true representation of “The Secret” and “The Power” I just have to share it!
I keep re-checking out “The Secret” and “The Power” on CD from my local library and listening over and over! I connect the dots of the life I have and the life I am looking forward to, but I am finding (in its obvious principle) that some of my life’s best examples of “The Secret” come to me when I least expect it….
I dropped my daughter off at her sitter’s home (whom happens to be my cousin and dear friend) on a Tuesday morning (as like every Tuesday) and my cousin seemed to be very “down in the dumps.” I couldn’t quite place what was wrong, but I knew she was NOT herself. So, as I was driving to work (at about 9:45am) I could not stop thinking that I needed to do something nice for her. She watches my daughter for no financial gain and it has been a while since I got her a gift. She was so sad I thought and thought that I needed to send her flowers and there is a floral shop called “Avant Garden” in the town that I work in, so I would make a quick stop and have a delivery sent. I thought my whole way to work that I would do this as soon as I got a break at work.
Well, about 2 1/2 hours into my work day, the door to my store opens, and a floral delivery (from “Avant Garden”) arrived. Now, I have five co-workers and thought I missed a birthday or special occasion and as I think about who I will accept these for, the delivery gal says “Is there a Valerie ____” here?
I just about fell over! “The Secret” is at it again! My husband sent me flowers and the card read “Just because” – FYI, I love my husband dearly, but he was not commonly a “Just because” sort of man, but I am so happy he has become one! Not to mention he works about about 20 miles from me and still just thought to use my work’s town florist!
I then ran over to that florist and sent a delivery to my cousin right away- “The Secret” had delivered, so I needed to make good on my end. I then, in return- made my cousin’s day, also!
What a wonderful gift! Not to mention- It was rainy and dreary all day, so the flowers were extra uplifting!
