the mysterious universe

I believe that the universe is mysterious...
And I believe that we each have a destiny...
We may arrive at that destiny
by the choices we freely make
but I still believe
we are going where the mysterious universe
intends for us to go...

This has been my way
of making sense out of the senseless
since I was a very little girl...

It's Spring again...the season of rebirth,
reawakening, of miracles...
The holidays of Springtime are all about miracles...
and possibilities...
and the mysterious universe is nothing
if not a place of possibilities...

A few weeks ago I wrote about Ariana's sadness...
and my frustration
because I did not know how to help her...

Then I received an email
from my friend Barbara,
who has her own mysterious knack
for sending me perfectly timed emails...
containing exacting the thing
I did not know I was searching for...

This is Barbara's email...

                   Segulot
a mystical Jewish formula for good mazel
and who doesn't need some

just 27 words

"G'mar Chatima Tova! G-D Our Father,
walk through my house & take away all
my worries & illnesss & please watch over &
heal my family...Amen..."

This prayer is so powerful...
Do not break
or ask questions...
Pass this to 12 people
including me...

I sent this to Ariana...
and then,
on a whim,
I also sent it to Arlo's cell phone...

I never expected Arlo to see it...
but I knew that my daughter would see it
and understand that it was for her...
and maybe a little more as well...

The day after I forwarded Barbara's email
Arlo took a slight turn for the better...

A little over a week ago
Ariana was able to bring Arlo home...

It's Springtime...
Isn't it delightful to live
in a mysterious universe
full of possibilities...
