A Year of Mystery

One of my favorite stories this year is about the day I discovered a small cross in the middle of the front seat of my car.  It somehow arrived in my locked car while I was shopping at Whole Foods.  I was on my way to my heart doctor who told me during my appointment that I had recovered from my heart attack.
I loved telling this story and listening to my friends search for logical explanations.  I was up for believing anything, including the unexplainable.

The other night I was searching for my red gloves which were not where they were supposed to be.  So I was going through every pocket of every coat in my closet looking for them.  From one pocket I pulled out a small white box.  I did not recognize it at all.  When I opened the box there was a tiny gold Hindu figurine inside.  Forgive me for not remembering who gave me this gift.

So now I have the cross and the little buddha.  I figure I'm in good shape for 2014.

Happy New Year.

  1. Dare I be so presumptuous as to hope that those of us who know you might be in good shape for 2014 by association? Coincidentally, I have a little teak Buddha that is supposed to take on one's worries by rubbing him.

    You have a very Happy New Year, Joan.

  3. Joan, the Buddha was from me, from India. But I do not take responsibility for the cross... Phyllis
