My favorite online dictionary, http://www.dictionary.com/ always has a Word of the Day and yesterday's, June 7th, was one of my all time favorites: Serendipity.
Such an appropriate word! A couple of really great things happened to me this week...in fact, both on the same day: Tuesday, June 6th. My spirit would've been lifted by just one, but the two of them together were simply serendipitous! 😊
1) Tuesday I was interviewed for a part-time job, was hired, and I start next week.
2) And also on Tuesday, I was notified that a story I submitted will be published in the upcoming book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Dog Really Did That?
I'm extremely excited about both, and especially the way they both happened....You know, those "meant to be" things?
The job came about because of a friend, in a zig-zaggy kind of way.
And, I haven't had anything published anywhere since 2013, and my most recent Chicken Soup acceptance was 2008!
Now, if I can just lose about 20 lbs. really fast so I can fit into my business casual clothes!
