Fortunes really do come true!

Here is my happy story for the week. Yesterday I went to lunch with a couple of friends. We went to a Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant, and this was my fortune:

Better fortune

Just as a disclaimer, while I like the idea of fortunes, I try hard not to put too much stock into them. After all, they’re just fun little things I’m certain the fortune cookie people make up for people to enjoy. Sometimes, I like the idea of them though, and the ones I like the most, I hold onto.

Since I loved the idea of this one, I kept it, figuring I’d hear good news of one sort or another in the next few days, and that would be that.

Little did I know what my wonderful roommates had in store. . .

We were having a roommate/friend dinner at Mazza in downtown Salt Lake City yesterday. It’s a beautiful Middle Eastern restaurant, in case you’re wondering, but on the whole, I thought it was only so-so for quite a few reasons. But, I digress.

What I didn’t know is that this was a “celebrate Tammy” dinner. It was a very lovely surprise for me, especially on a day when I was feeling a little blue. As part of this dinner, my wonderful roommates, whom I truly love and appreciate more than words can express, gave me this.


And inside I found this beautiful butterfly necklace.

For anyone who doesn’t know, butterflies are a symbol of my niece who passed away, so I look for them wherever I go. And my roommates know this, which makes their thoughtful gift even kinder.

Who knew fortunes could come true in such a delightful way? Thanks to my wonderful roommates are an important part of my life and help it be as wonderful as it is.

Love you too. God works in wonderful ways, often through those we care about. Wednesday "just happened" to be the day we were able to all get together and celebrate you and your wonderfulness.
