Very busy weekend--farmer's market, starting new quilt, dinner with friends, birthday dinner for niece, baking 6 cakes for Meatloaf Monday today.

Fell asleep with the tv on in my room last night. When I woke in the wee hours, I thought I was dreaming.

The woman who owns the production company I'm working with was on tv. I opened my eyes just as she was introducing herself. She's a former anchorperson in Minneapolis, but hasn't been doing the news for years and even then it was local news in Minneapolis, 500 miles away.

Last week The Man asked some questions. When I supplied the answers, he said he'd forward them to this woman. Now I'm awaiting her answer.

And there she is, on my tv in the middle of the night. Can't wait to see what happens next.

Not long after Evan's accident, I was spinning in the night, trying to figure out what to do and how to find help. I left my room and went to the family room, where I eventually fell asleep on the sofa with the tv on. Woke to find Denny Green, then the coach of the Vikings and not a man I admired at all, doing a spot for the Epilepsy Foundation, which I did not know existed. I wrote down the phone number and called the next day. They led me to doctors who truly knew how to help and did, in a thousand ways.

I never saw the commercial again. Just that once. Just when I needed it. Just God speaking to me through the voice of Denny Green.

Mysterious ways, people. Mysterious ways.

Amen Sister! Happens to me all the time when I am paying attention or am diligently seeking. It continues to amaze me though. So, thanks for the reminder.

I love when stuff like that happens.

Amazing how the universe gives us just what we need, just when we need it. Can not wait to see what comes of this message.
