About two weeks ago, one of my websites got a huge order. On Saturday while trying to fufill the order, I realized I was short of supplies. So, I went to the craft store and they didn't have what I needed (I had gotten the first set of items there). So, when I went home and looked on their website, the closest store in the chain was about 30 miles away. So, I have been using the car Ford Focus as my sign. I said to the Universe, "When I see a Ford Focus, I will know to go to the store to get the beads." I really didn't want to drive all that way to not find them. So, everytime I went out, I looked for the Ford Focus. I could not find one to save my life. The last four days, I have seen every Ford car immaginable, pratically at every turn
So, I get the kids on the bus and it is a beautiful day. You know the kind of day where you want to drive in the country with the window open. So, I decide what the heck, I will go. I get lost. I am driving down this country road and I say, if I see a yellow car, I know I will have gone too far. I see two yellow trucks, so I figure close enough. I turn around, retrace my steps and finally find the store.
I get to the store and they have what I am looking for. I am so psyched and grateful. If I get these done before the 8th, they want 100 additional units. So, I am driving home and I could not figure out why the Universe didn't show me the Ford Focus. I wasn't asking for instant gratification, just a small sign. While I am driving, I realized that every time I got home, I would think "No Focus today". I think I was talking myself out of my own sign! But, the Universe, being persistant as ever, was throwing Fords in my face wherever I went. Hopefully now the customer will decide they still want the additional 100 units which I know I can finish in no time flat and get them to them before the deadline.
