I went to UVM imaging a parking space empty at the Dairy Bar Building which is next to the bookstore. When I pulled into the lot, there was a spot at the far end not quite visible at first glance. In the bookstore I found the textbook and picked up other related course related supplies. At the checkout area, there was one register with no line. I went right through and out to my car.
As I drove back to work, I began my mental mantra, " I find a parking place easily now." "Where do I park?" My intuition said "Try where you parked before." I drove to the street and there was the same spot I had left open for some lucky person looking for a place to park in the middle of town!!!! I thanked the universe again. You know it made my day.
As I was entering this example into my computer, someone handed me a stack of papers and one paper fell out on the floor. As I picked it up I saw a poem which fits with this example. I won't type in the whole poem, just the beginning which says it all.
When we start to count flowers, we cease
to count the weeds.
When we start to count blessings, we cease to count our needs.
