My Opal Earrings Return To Me ...

Opal earrings return to me :)).

Gave my favorite pair of opal earrings to a salesclerk (anonymously left them on a shelf with card) a few months ago. I really liked those earrings, but since she had admired them, thought it was the right thing to do....teaching me again the lesson of impermanence.

While on recent vacation, I found the EXACT pair of earrings in a shop that was having a close-out sale for the season. Was 1/3 the price and knew that they were to be mine again.

What is that saying about if you let something go and it never returns, it wasn't meant to be?? Well, seems if you let something go and it returns, it was meant to be :))).

Grateful to be open to both giving and receiving, my kind friends.
