I went to the grocery store today. What an ordeal lately. It seems that every time it costs a few dollars more to buy the same stuff. I had to buy a lot of staples today, like beans, sugar, flour and yeast. And I needed vegetables to make soups and stews. And a little meat from the 30% off pile. And still, it broke me.
So, here I was, sitting here feeling sorry for myself, playing Freecell on the computer, when TING! there was a notification of an email. And it said “donation received”. So I go look at it, and indeed it is a donation. Of just the amount I needed. Saved by the bell! Happy dance.
And so my charmed life continues. I’m looking forward to the books from Nurse Myra, and another little something may come in the mail, too. So thank you, people, thank you, Universe. My face is starting to hurt from smiling.
Now off to make banana bread from the bananas I got for 29¢ a pound.
