Today I met my wife for a lunch date at our favorite Chinese food restaurant. My favorite part of the meal is the fortune cookie, well besides the company that is 😉 Fortune cookies and I have a strange bond – they always end up being very applicable to my life. For example, when we were in the throes of house hunting I recieved a fortune stating “You will soon find yourself settled into a beautiful new home”. Unusually specific for a fortune cookie, right? As it turned out, within the month we purchased and moved into our current home – and that fortune has been rewarded with a framed spot in the office for making good on his word.
Today’s message: “Determination will get you through this hard time”
I can only hope that in a year from now I will look back on that message (framed in the nursery perhaps?) and feel as fulfilled and happy as I do now with our home.
