Tonight I had Chinese food for dinner with my family. The restaurant kindly gave us extra fortune cookies because we’re regulars. When I opened mine, at first I couldn’t believe my eyes. It said, “A short stranger will soon enter your life with blessings to share.”
As you know I have a blog called “Strangers I Have Known.” Call it a coincidence, but I think not: I have been eating Chinese food and fortune cookies since I was in grade school and I have never seen this fortune before. I’m a believer in what they call the Law of Attraction, and this feels like a manifestation—that is, this particular fortune came to me because on some level I requested it.
I wonder, is this short stranger a man or a woman? I’ll have to wait and see. All I know is that he or she won’t be a stranger for long.
Please comment if you’ve ever received a fortune that has come true.
