Fortune Cookie Fortunes

So this is getting weird . . .

Normally, I do not give any weight or meaning to fortunes in fortune cookies, BUT shortly after we started the adoption process, I got a fortune that says, "You will have success with whatever you adopt." I kept it and plan on putting it in her baby book. I know, it is probably just a coincidence and can also mean adopting an idea or philosophy, but to us, it means a baby girl waiting for us in Vietnam.

On Sunday, Myke and I ordered Chinese & Japanese food from our fave delivery called Asahi. I was so full I didn't even eat the fortune cookies. Myke doesn't really like them, so I usually end up with them anyways. Yesterday, I opened one and my fortune says, "Your infinite capacity for patience will be rewarded sooner or later." I know I am reading into it, but it can so be read into!! This fortune could possibly be the anthem for international adoption!

Plus, you have to understand, we eat a lot of Chinese food and I get lots of fortunes and most of them do not apply.

SO. . . The fortune cookies (we got 4 on Monday) are sitting on the coffee table and tonight, I get another relevant fortune, "The smart thing is to prepare for the unexpected." Oh!?! What could tht mean? At least with my past health issues and running a seasonal business has definitely made me learn to prepare for the unexpected, so I hope I'm ready. Myke always tells me hope for the best and prepare for the worst - and that usually helps and can be applied to just about anything.

Is the Confucius of Fortune cookies trying to tell me something here?

:::: I feel my red thread tugging and tightening! ::::

Save that fortune cookie for your scrap/lifebook when you get back from China!
