Coming home from a 12-hour workday, I was ready for a celebratory drink. The entire day had been a celebration of a three year journey; a day of firsts that I will always remember.
I reached into the freezer for a some ice and came out with handful of melting cubes. My frozen veggies were softening. I did not dare open the fridge. I went to bed with my drink and a hoped that the fridge would magically right itself overnight.
I quickly put what I could in a cooler with semi frozen I packs and rushed out the door for work. I texted my retired neighbor who walks my dog to see if she could save my frozen veggies. Soup season is coming and I had just stocked up on basic. As I share soup with this neighbor, she has a vested interest in my stockpile.
She went above and beyond by moving all of the contents in my fridge and freezer to her’s.
Once I got to work, I got on the web looking for a fridge. My first reaction was sticker shock followed by fear as so many fridges were on back order. I found a fridge at a reasonable price. It will be delivered in three weeks.
This could easily be framed as a woe is me story, but I was met with abundance at every turn.
Last year I did a 40 day spiritual course around abundance. My take aways were that abundance is all around me if I only open my eyes to see that abundance flows from the Divine to me and through me. I believe this. I remind myself if this often.
Abundance is there. Just notice it. Giving is abundance. Notice that. Abundance is sacred. Trust that.
