Just as I was starting to demonstrate how to make pie dough at last night’s class, my phone did it’s little “ding-ding” text-message thing. Being that my hands weren’t in the bowl and covered with flour and fats yet, and that the ding was so well-timed, I pulled my phone out of the deep apron pocket and saw that I had received a text from my friend, Kelly Cline.
“You should check your porch ”, I read out loud to the four pie makers at the table.
Four pairs of eyes followed as I went to the door and opened it. Laying on the doormat just outside I found a beautiful bouquet of flowers in shades of my favorite colors of pink.
At least one at class asked if this was planned.
“Not in the least!” I replied to their smiling faces and set them on the counter.
When making dough, I always take a moment to think about someone and put an intention “into” my bowl. Kelly went right “into the bowl” and I texted her right back telling her so.
Lately I have been experiencing things like this nearly daily.
You may remember that last week, a “web angel” showed up just when I was having an emergency.
Purely on a whim, Tuesday I stopped to see a friend on the Olympic Peninsula that I hadn’t seen for about a year. Before I had even come round to the passenger side of the car, he opened the front door of his house and with tears in his eyes said, “I thought I had lost you forever and here your are!”
At that very moment when I decided to take the back road that passed near by his house, he had been trying to locate me via old telephone numbers without success and then I showed up!
And, today after shopping, I spied a business card on the ground near my car. For some reason I decided to pick it up. It was someone I had been looking for and thought I had lost, too!
Does this stuff happen to you? Not sure what really is going on but if this is the power of pie it’s pretty darned amazing!
