Fast forward to today when, sitting in the library with Nadine and Tim, the subject came up again. Nadine and her husband were going out this evening with friends for Chinese food, not to Chinatown, but to a restaurant in Pasadena. Tim and Nadine talked about how good the slippery shrimp is. I sat there, listening and wishing that I could experience the taste of it.
Tonight a knock came on our door. In came Nadine with a plastic bag. Inside was an order of slippery shrimp!!! What an out-of-the-blue surprise.........Mr. Bob brought 2 forks out of the kitchen and we ate right out of the take-out carton. Oh, so good!
Now here's an interesting thing. When I turned to that how-did-we-ever-get-along-without-it Google site, here's what I found:
Ho hum, another miracle.
I didn't tell you about this, but a few days ago, Mr. Bob discovered a plastic bag hanging on the doorknob to our apartment. Inside? A backscratcher!!! A friend who reads our blog had bought one for her husband before learning that he already had one. She recalled my fruitless search for a back scratcher and it so happens that her parents live here at the Manor, which was how it ended up where we found it.
Albert Einstein said, "There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." I have every reason to agree.
