Opportunity Knocks Quietly Sometimes...

I was cleaning out an old purse the other day and came across a Panda Express receipt and a fortune from a fortune cookie tucked neatly inside. 

The date on the receipt? Saturday, August 29, 2009.

The fortune?
I wonder why I would save this fortune?  I'm not someone to save things like this.
Who knew that the opportunity that would soon be presented to me was the Lap Band? 

I attended my surgeon's informational seminar three days after getting that fortune.

The rest is history.

  1. Cosmic. It was meant to be! The universe works in mysterious ways.

    BTW...I don't often comment, but I read EVERY SINGLE ONE of your posts. When I open my Google reader and see 15 new posts, yours is the first one I read. You are my guiding light as I approach my "new opportunity."

    A million thanks to you. I hope you know what a valuable resource and friend you are to this community.

  2. And, you made the most of that opportunity. Merry Christmas to you and your family. :)

  3. That is so cool. It was meant to be!

  4. Love this post! Just the universe's way of saying "You go girl!" : )

  5. Wow,kinda spooky-definitely a way forward...
