Don't Just Wait for Fate, Do Something




No Action No Cows


Phil visited Cosco’s probably more then other members. But like all of us he had a motive in mind and she was a special girl called Jill. But Jill didn’t know she was someone’s special thought and thoughts not brought to life by words or gestures don’t make the cows come home at night.

But sometimes fate lends a special hand and helps bring two hands together. Today Jill was attending to her Mothers needs by helping her Mother get X rays required by her family doctor. And guess who was her attending nurse when she woke up in the recovery room? Yep you got it, it was Phil and this gave him the opportunity to meet his future mother in law up close and personal.

They Connected

Finally Jill was allowed to visit her Mother and like in the Magic Kingdom she meets Phil and quickly remembered seeing Phil many times at Cosco’s. And according to Phil he spent more time then usual assisting Jill’s Mother.

When Phil shared this story with me this is as far as the story got before Jill arrived to share a hot dog with him. So I cant tell you the ending. But something inside my thinking tells me that, that special something happened to them and that closed the space between them.

Either One Could Have Been It Happen Sooner

Sure life brought them together, but they could have done that just as easily. And it could have happened just like this. How about sharing a coke with me? Or can I buy you lunch tomorrow?

The way that people meet doesn’t matter, what matters is that words need to be spoken in the hope of sharing time together. Waiting for fate to drive up and give you a ride is chance-e at best and seldom in real life brings two loving hearts together. So its up to you and isn’t it better to try and eventually make the sun shine, shine bright in your life?
