So today started out not so great. My beautiful, wonderful, darling baby Jackie texted me this morning. “I miss you and I want to see you and ur new house and all ur little plants 🙁
I posted on facebook my avacado plant that we germinated from a avacado seed. Jackie saw it today and so texted me.
So I started bawling, I went out into the car so no one would hear me and cried and cried. Not something I do very often. Not that I haven’t cried an ocean already for various reasons as I am sure many of us have. You see I am very attached to my two daughters, Dayna my oldest 21 and Jackie my above mentioned “baby” she’s 19. And I know their grown up!!! Stop telling me that.
Ok so maybe too attached but I don’t care. I miss them, they are 6000 miles away and I was sad about that today. Not so much missing has gone on in the almost 3 months I have been here. The longest stretch, by the way, ever that I have not seen 1 or both of my girls.
So here’s what’s interesting to me. As I am bawling in the car I start to think “there is great opportunity in this adversity I just have to start looking for it.” I realize that this is not so much an adversity as just a sad mom but it feels that way to me.
I know that my daily habits of changing my thoughts thur the Master Key Master Mind Alliance is what brought me to the thought that there is great opportunity and I am grateful for the work I have done and continue to do. That would not have happened a few years ago, I just would have been sad all day started eating junk and watching TV till it went away or I forced myself out of the sadness.
Anyway, I finish my emoting because I gotta get going to the farmer’s market. If you don’t get there early all the good stuff is gone. So I get my husband and we head over. So on the way over Mark says, “Isn’t it amazing how God has given you another daughter to bridge the gap till your kids get here.” Huh, What! OMGosh it’s true! That’s a bang over the head to me. I realize this friggin miracle that justhas happened, and I don’t feel so sad anymore. What he means is his daughter Chelsea, she will be here in like 6 weeks to live, here with us. YEA!
This is a miracle because Chelsea didn’t like me for a long, long time and now it seems very recently we have become very close. Such a gift to me. She is an amazing kid and I have always liked her and I always had faith that someday we’d be friends.
Now it’s so much more that friends. We say “I love you” when we get off the phone. Miracle! Yep she calls me! Not her Dad and then asks for me, she calls ME, and skypes me, she asks to vent, or for advise – I feel she is mine and I am so, so happy. It’s true the Universe, or God or whatever you want to call it has given me this miracle, Chelsea!
Actually it’s was Chelsea who started the avacado germinating for me in the first place, and that’s what started this whole thing, I love irony.
THEN GUESS WHAT HAPPENED? Mark meets this adorable woman at the farmer’s market, Georgia Fernandez, and she is a pistol all of about 4 feet tall. She invites us over to her house around the corner to pick a few fresh coconuts. This my friends is a dream come true! I have wanted to pick my own coconut for 5 years!!! And I did it today. I have been looking for coconuts since I got here. I know you think there on every corner NO! Everyone has their own palm tree so there is really no market for coconuts. They are hard to find, can you believe that!!
Two miracles today because I decided to look for them. Thank you Master Keys and my Master Mind Alliance.
