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.
