The Fortune Cookie Was Correct
A month or two before I headed out to the Jesuit Center in Wernersville, I got a fortune that read something like this:
An old love will return to your life.
Mosaic Woman was a bit concerned, however, as the days went by and no old love showed up here or there or anywhere as far as I could tell.. I forgot about the fortune.
It was well into my week of silence before I realized the fortune had been true. For the first time in several years I had been meeting with a spiritual director, who I loved dearly but because of scheduling issues had not been available to work with me. But as the years went by, things change. Our conversations were still amazing but I left the room feeling that I was clearly more a part of where I was being guided to go for the next 24 hours. Had her style changed? Had I matured a bit spritually? No matter, it was good. It felt right.
And yes, I told her about the fortune cookie, and I told Mosaic Woman about the fortune being true.
