Some people say serendipity is just having your eyes open. Others say that serendipity rewards the prepared. Finding something without looking for it.
I was walking down the road one day. Wasn’t having a very good day. Frankly, I hadn’t had a very good life. I was so exhausted and super skinny. And I was really pretty sad that I hadn’t found someone who might love me.
Along the road I saw a woman who looked like an angel. I was a little scared at first and wasn’t sure about her at all. But she spent most of the day trying to be my friend, so I finally decided she must be really nice and I went home with her. Figured it couldn’t be any worse than what I’d already been through. Maybe she had food.
I’m so glad I went home with this angel. She gave me a nice warm bed, lots of food and treats, a bath, a name (Chella!) and…her heart. And in turn I gave her mine.
I love riding in the car with my angel to go on long walks and runs in the meadow, and curling up by the woodstove after. Blueberries are my favorite treat!
Call this serendipity if you want. I call it coming home.
