In response to daily post’s prompt : Fortune
Each one of us is born with some kind of kismet, it’s a combination of good and bad. When something bad happens to me, the thought immediately comes to mind, what did I do wrong, why am I facing this misfortune? I am scared because it comes in three, if the first one is awful, it makes me think what is next and next?
One day last year we had a lot of snow, in the morning while praying I asked God to help me, I knew I couldn’t possibly shovel all that snow, neither could I expect my daughter to do it.
I decided not to think about it, it was driving me nuts, I sat with my novel to keep my mind off this problem. At 8 am my neighbor called, she wanted to know if I’d like to get my driveway shoveled. I said,”who is it send him now, please?”
It was a tall and thin man, he was very courteous, he asked me, “Is twenty dollars okay, or I’ll reduce it?”
I looked at him and thought for a second, who is he, normally when we are stuck people do not ask for less money, but as high as possible. I smiled and said, “No, it’s more than okay, I will give you twenty-five dollars.”
That was the day I felt, ‘FORTUNE,’ smiled at me big time. God did not want to disappoint me!
