They Are Like Boomerangs

For many years I have been sharing Expect A Miracle cards with most people I come into contact with and this has been purely for giving purposes to enhance others’ lives and give them an opportunity (or excuse) to expect their own miracles.

What I’ve discovered is like a boomerang these little cards inscribed with the same 3 words ‘Expect A Miracle’ keep giving back to ME!

(A boomerang is a thrown tool, that is designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. The returning boomerang is designed to circle back to the thrower.)

On a recent trip to Melbourne, Australia I visited my favourite restaurant precinct Lygon Street which is rich with Italian culture. I was in a sombre mood and feeling rather lethargic that day as I wandered aimlessly along choosing a restaurant to dine on my own.

As I walked past an extremely stylishly dressed gentleman (a regular sight in Lygon Street) he looked directly at me and said ‘Excuse Me’, I stopped and replied only to realise he was actually speaking to the maître d directly behind me outside the restaurant. Of course, I gave him an Expect A Miracle card which he and the very well dressed gentleman with him very much appreciated.  I walked to the end of the street glad I had added some extra light to their day.

I needed to walk back past the same restaurant to get to my chosen lunch venue and attempted to avoid the two men as not wanting to interact any further or spoil the effect of the Expect A Miracle card. Silly me attempting to avoid interaction with Italians they beaconed me over and began telling me how positive I was and how they saw I walked with purpose and a pure spirit and we discussed the fact that miracles always happened as long as you expected them to.

I walked on eventually, with my head held high and a gigantic smile on my once sombre face. I suddenly had a realisation there was the boomerang again! Just when I needed cheering up it happened. These men unknowingly made my day and helped me refocus on the good I had received a miracle at the perfect time.

I love my Expect A Miracle cards and they continue to surprise and uplift me as they turn into boomerangs.
