Fortune cookie

Posted on: February 17, 2012

This just slipped out of my wallet. “He who has not tasted the bitter does not understand the sweet.” I think it perfectly describes just about everything!

When I got off the train there were girls selling girl scout cookies! This was perfect because when I was in California, Brady wanted to stop for some and I said we didn’t have time. In return, I promised to buy her a box. I asked my sister since she has a lot of students who sell them and she said it was too late to buy. There used to be an order form in the cafeteria at work, but its gone too. I felt bad for not being able to find any cookies and then they showed up right in front of me! I was thinking about the Grey’s Anatomy quote about how sometimes we end up exactly where we belong. It got me thinking about the big picture and how sometimes we work so hard to find and earn things we want or feel we deserve when really we should do nothing because its right under our nose. Sometimes, but not all the time. Sometimes we’re so busy making other plans, we don’t realize the things that could already be happening.  I think effort counts for something too. I guess what I’m trying to say is sometimes you’re taken care of even when you think you’re not.
