Spoons

Hearts and Frog measuring spoons
Sometimes things happen in life and I am sure there is a lesson to be learned, noticing and finding the lesson is the challenge.
Cecilia and I were shopping in one of my favorite shops last weekend; as I was browsing the section with kitchen utensils I found these measuring spoons.  I fell in love with the spoons they were funky and cute with astrological symbols imprinted on them.  I wanted them but didn’t want to spend $30.00 for four spoons.  If you had wanted these spoons I would have been happy to purchase them for you.  Since they were for me it took a year for me to finally brake down and purchase the measuring spoons, silly I know.
Too cute

Mom started asking a month ago, “What would you like for your birthday?” at this age it is hard to get me something I want for my birthday, typically I will just go buy what ever it is I want. 

When I got home I called her and told her about the spoons, I told her I would wrap them up for my birthday in August and all she would have to do is send me a card.  Actually my favorite part of birthday celebrations are the cards.  Again, all is well with my little world.
Thursday my friend Tina handed me a gift bag and said, “I found something that just called your name, I had to purchase it for you” and off she went.  Tina has never given me a gift for no reason before.
When I got home and opened the bag I found a set of spoons, the design was slightly different, I smiled and couldn’t believe after waiting all this time, now I have two sets of beautiful measuring spoons.  There was no way Tina could have known these spoons were special to me, no way.
My first thought was to take a set back.  Then I paused to think about this delightful coincidence, I have decided to be grateful and keep both sets of measuring spoons.  Now each time I see the spoons I will be reminded I am blessed with friends and abundance.
So how was your day?
