Pocketful of Lucky

This morning when I put my jacket on I reached into my pocket and pulled out a ten dollar and five dollar bill. I smiled. This isn't the first time this has happened. I seem to have a habit of tucking little bits of money into corners, pockets and spaces ... to be found by me - just when I need it most.

Tomorrow is pay day - but this week I had spent my cash and even robbed hubby's change jar for the $1.45 for my morning Tim's. My little cache of cash was an unexpected surprise and it set a happy tone for the day.

I got to work nice and early, and wrapped up my overdue articles for this month's newsletter by the end of the day. You can't beat the feeling of finally finishing something you had been putting off (procrastinating) .... the cocktail of pure relaxation and relief gushes through your veins like a mental anaesthetic and for a moment, you can pause and revel in the peace.

I gave a quiet thank you to the universe ... you take such good care of me. Life is good ... and I am not sure if it is getting better -- or I am. : )

  1. Must be you, definitely!!

  2. I love it when that happens. :) I have a habit of leaving extra dollars in my old purses. It's always great to come back a few months later and find it waiting for you.

  3. I think that life has never been without its good points every day(even if the bad points seem to be dominant at times). You're just getting better at noticing these good points and being very appreciative of them that is.

  4. It is always a treat to find stashed money. I always wonder how many dollars I have lost this way after I give clothes away. Although I doubt it is a lot, because I check pockets before I clean them, I do have the hope that the person who received that second hand coat needed the money more than I do.
