“There are those who say that seeing is believing. I am telling you that believing is seeing.” - Neale Donald Walsch, Home with God: In a Life That Never Ends
Have you ever picked up the phone and called someone you haven't spoken to in a year and when you hang up you're in tears because it was like you were meant to call and listen.
Well, I just had that phone call.
Early this morning, my daughter and I bought a simple, silver star for our Christmas tree. When we got to the cash register, I didn't realize it was $20 more than I planned on spending.
I wasn't going to buy it but I saw twinkle in my 25 year-old daughter's eyes - just like when she was 2.
So when we got home, my daughter and 13 year-old son put the star on top of the tree. Christmas carols were streaming in the background as we turned on the Christmas lights. And to our surprise - a delightful treat, we were like little kids giggling with joy because our new Christmas tree topper was reflecting rotating rainbow colors on our ceiling.
And then I noticed my son's piano. We had just rearranged the den the night before. I took a business card out of the dresser and dialed the number on the card.
I knew it was Sunday, so I was expecting to leave a message. But then a woman answered, so apologetically I said,
"Hi. Good afternoon, I'm sorry to have called on a Sunday. My name is Jenjen. I thought I dialed Mr. D's work number. I was going to leave a message to schedule our piano for tuning. I'll call tomorrow."
