Thankful Thursday: Serendipitous Moments

Thankful Thursdays on Food4ThoughtNYC

“Whether we name divine presence synchronicity, serendipity, or graced moment matters little. What matters is the reality that our hearts have been understood. Nothing is as real as a healthy dose of magic which restores our spirits.”
-Nancy Long

The last line of Long’s quote resonates profoundly for me, especially this week. I never gave serendipity much thought before, simply because I wrote those moments off as coincidence.

As I gave myself over to mindfulness and developed a deeper awareness of the signs around me, I realized that sometimes the universe unexpectedly opens a door. It might not be where I thought I was headed, but it’s always directed me where I needed to go.

Each time I experience serendipity, I feel what can only be described as wonder at what a bit of faith and time can yield in light of a desperate situation.  It’s profoundly humbling.  And magical too.

  3. I’m thankful for a lot throughout the year so my family put together a blessings jar to submit blessings as they occur. As you can imagine that jar is getting filled up pretty quickly and it is only April!! I am so happy and blessed – it’s too much to post here.
