Lost & found
I have been known to forget where I put things and indeed forget to take important things with me but I never lose them forever and have never been robbed. Over the years I have left my purse in a Rome railway station café and later my bag on a London underground train and had them returned. I considered myself lucky or blessed.
On a recent plane trip I left my diamond ring in the ladies toilet at the airport. The ring has a thick band with 45 small diamonds and I removed it to dry my hands thoroughly. I spoke to someone and then forgot it in the scramble to collect all my bags. I was tapping away happily on my computer for half an hour before I realised I had an empty ring finger.
Oh my God I exclaimed and asked the young woman sitting next to me to mind my bags (despite the security taboo about leaving ones bags). I rushed back to the toilet but it wasnt there. The cleaning lady hadnt seen it but she pointed to a man in a blue shirt as a security man who might be able to help. He didnt have a phone to call a central office and suggested I walk to the Security Office. Gate 25 is a long way from the starting point and I would have missed my plane. Things werent looking good. It was a nasty senior moment.
My mobile carrier directory assistance connected me to the Airport who put me through to the Security office. Karen asked me what the ring looked like and apparently someone had handed it in. After I explained that Id had recent knee surgery and couldnt rush to collect it, she offered to walk to gate 25 to meet me. I kept thinking about the nice person who picked up the ring; she must have been an Adelaide woman who knew that it would devastate the owner to lose it. Karen said the person didnt give a name just handed it to her.
I was so relieved and grateful, as any of you who may have lost anything can imagine. Unfortunately, I had no one to thank.
On the return flight a woman seated behind me was searching for a gold hoop earring her daughter had flicked off. The stewards were on the ground looking for it and I put my hand behind my seat. There was quite a bit of rubbish there so I suggested she feel behind her seat and sure enough she found it. I knew exactly how relieved she felt. This was my small way to thank the Universe.
I know that when I know what I want and concentrate it manifests. I know that what I have read on the Secrets website about Money, Health and Relationships is the truth about life and the Universe. Im looking forward to seeing my copy of the DVD and clearing out the deadwood in my mind.
