When things turn up and make you smile …

This is a true story and it began this morning when I was preparing to go for a morning walk.
I could not find a second hair clip and rather than waste time looking I decided to go with a hair clip and a hair grip ( as Mum used to call them). I had already lost half an hour to emails so I didn’t want to waste any more time!
It is Spring time in our part of the world and the Jasmine vines, my very favourite flower, are bursting with new life. There was a massive flowering vine hanging over the edge of fence in one of the very old lane ways and I picked some but as I was only half way through my walk I thought I wish I had brought a bag with me…
I exited the lane way into a car park and there, on the edge of the car park was a lone shopping trolley with a bright pink, empty bag sitting in it.
No car nearby.
No people to be seen.
This must be my bag!
I smiled as I put the Jasmine inside and reflected on how sometimes there is great power in our throw away thoughts. We throw them out into the ether, often thousands of thoughts in a single day and sometimes they boomerang back to us wrapped around a prize catch created by the matter of fact nature of our thoughts !
Did you know that often the things that matter in those matter of fact moments can matter’ialise when we least expect it?
I arrived home, took the beautifully perfumed Jasmine from the bag and placed the flowers in Mums old ceramic boot vase that she made many years ago.
Since Mum passed away last year I treasure every single thing she made and there are many art and craft creations she lovingly made over the years.
For example that is one of her knitted dolls hats on her manikin that is embracing mine.
I am an avid student of the power of the mind and our role as co-creators with life but there was no way I could have guessed what was in the bottom of what I thought was a completely empty bag!
Here it is! A second hair clip!
Exactly the same as the one I was looking for before going with the hair grip instead.
Hand on heart this extra bit of Magic just kind of made my day! As the late and wonderful Dr Wayne Dyer wrote You’ll see it when you Believe it!
I definitely believe in the Magic of life!
I don’t know how the empty pink bag ended up sitting in an empty trolley in a near empty car park and I would happily return it to its’ owner if there was identifying information in there.
But then again it is quite possible it just turned up because I thought I wish I had brought a bag with me and before that I need that hair clip, my fringe is in my eyes…
