The book called The Secret really works. I have never experience more random blessings than this past week. Today was the topper. I have been busy planning and putting together the final touches on my Make A Difference weekend that will be happening next Saturday. Today on a whim I stopped by a florist and spotted a beautiful angel that seemed to say buy me…….The angel was holding a basket. I told the florist that it would make a perfect bowl to hold raffle tickets but I had nothing to raffle off. All of a sudden she slipped out to the back room to talk to the owner of the store. Imagine what happened next. I will be getting a beatiful flower arrangement to be raffled off. I didn’t ask for it. It just came to me. God is good. I have been given more blessings that I will be able to share with others…….The greatest gift is the gift of charity. On Saturday I will be joining other local knitters and crocheters in making blankets for women with cancer and Veterans at a local hospital. Two women will be bringing their sewing machines to sew blankets also. This event gives me great pleasure in knowing that I can make a difference in the lives of those who need comfort and who are hurting. We are all called to play a part in the lives of each other. It could be a simple act of kindness or a big act of kindness. But as human beings we are all called to take action. Together we can Make A Difference.

This is an old blog entry. I thought I would do a little throw back in time. What kind of entries would you like to see?

Every day I play a game called……Talk to three people. Since I am a stay at home mom and a single one at that, I find that if I stay at home I will isolate myself. I am amazed at the people that I have met at the local Walmart. No this is not one of those I caught a weird looking person shopping at Walmart blogs. For the most part the people I have met at Walmart have been very friendly. Last week a customer approached me and asked me if I was a weaver. I replied no. He had seen all the yarn that I had in my cart. I told him I was doing a project for make a difference day. The story goes on and on but the outcome was this……Today he blessed me BIG TIME!!!!!!! I wasn’t even asking for it. All I did was to present him an idea and he saw the value in it. He believed in my vision. I had one of the ladies from my “dangling a carrot” blog with me. I admit I almost gave her a heart attack big time…..”Quick call 911 we have a craft emergency!!!!!!” What kind of craft do you do? What are you passionate about? Never tell yourself……I can’t do it. You are a work in progress. Believe in your abilities. Dig deep to your inner creative self. Live, laugh, love your craft. Most of all remember to have fun doing it. Your craft idea should not be work to you. When that happens, step back and take a break. You deserve it. What comes around goes around. Think positive thoughts. Always wish good blessings on your enemies. Be careful……the universe is listening. That’s the true answer to THE SECRET.

In 2006 after quitting my job, I applied for unemployment from a job that I had 17 years vested in. I was unable to collect because I could not work part time at that time. Instead over the past 3 years I have been doing nothing…… Nothing up until now. When I did work, I would always say this “When I retire, I want to be a _________.” I will let you know what the answer is in a future blog. I have been preparing for my return to work in the work force. Instead of sitting around and feeling sorry for myself, every day I go out and make contact with people. I do this so that I do not lose my people skills. My labor and delivery skills are still there. But they are gathering cobwebs. On September 11, 2009, I will be making my comeback as something brand new….. I will be a volunteer labor doula at a local hospital. If you are a woman, may I make a suggestion to you. Check and see if your area has labor doulas. If they do you need to check out how to become one. It is simple…… No matter what the job you are seeking, you need to research it before you apply for the job. Ask questions. Talk to people who work for the company. Find out the companies mission statement. Know the company. Live the company. Breathe the company. Experience the company. For me….. I have been walking through my next job every other day. I walk the isles. I ask questions. I smile. I touch. I feel. I experience the job that I will be at next. I recently asked someone at this place….How long does it take to hear if you have gotten the job? The response will be one month. Next week will be one month. I have to admit it has been the only job I have applied for since I left my nursing job. This is my dream job…..it is what I want to be when I retire. I know that this job is coming into my life because I know THE SECRET. Do you? If you want anything in life…..You have to make it happen. Now it is your turn to go out there and find your dream job.

Have you ever picked up a book and opened a page and out popped out words that spoke to you? The following is a quote from The Dalai Lama’s Little Book Of Wisdom….May I be gladdened when someone belittles me, and may I not take pleasure when someone praises me. If I do take pleasure in praise then it immediately increases my arrogance, pride and conceit; whereas if I take pleasure in criticism, then it will at least open my eyes to my own shortcomings.

I take great pleasure in the constructive criticism that I receive. It opens up new pathways to a better me. Many of the paths that I have been on have led me to where I am at today. I can say that I am in a better place right now. I have all that I need and then some. Sure money would be nice to have but I don’t need it to make me happy. I have a family, a home, a car, a new love in my life. What would I change if I could do it all over again? I would have waited……. I would have never grown up too fast. I would have gone away to college. I would have dated the next door neighbor who turned out to be a NASA engineer. Would haves, should haves, could haves. It’s all in my past. I only have today. It is worth more than gold to me. In the year 2009, I will be taking an experiment….Come and join me won’t you. After all we all have secrets…..I’d like to share this one with you.

Today has been my busiest day since I started my blog in August 2008. It has had 111 hits so far. I like the number 111. Here is an explanation of why I like it:Whenever you see the sequence 111 or 1111 show up, it is a great sign of a golden opportunity. Both sequences mean that a “doorway” has opened up in which your intentions and goals will manifest extremely quickly. The Angels have taught me to focus my thoughts and intentions whenever I see 111 or 1111, almost like making a wish when a cake with candles is presented to you.http://www.angelscribe.com/1111.html

In  a matter of time…. All will be shown to you. All you need to do is ask. Set forth a path in motion. Ask the universe for the answers to your deepest desires. What you seek…..you will get. Be careful what you ask for. If you ask for nothing you will get nothing. You are the key holder. Unlock the mysteries of your heart’s desires. Are you willing to risk it all? Are you willing to expose your wishes and dreams?Someone will listen. Are you ready for a rich and fulfilling future?Do you know the Secret?…..The SECRET lies within you. Just believe.
