“Do you think the universe fights for souls to be together?
Some things are too strange and strong to be coincidences.”
― Emery Allen
I asked my daughter who I should write to today, and without a moment’s hesitation, she said it should be you. You, the curious combination of meant-to-be mistakes and fortunate accidents. I have to admit that I have been an absolute enthusiast of your work for as long as I can recall believing in wishes. You are the personification of Fate dancing with Chance, only to be tapped on the shoulder so that Destiny could cut in. It is remarkably romantic to imagine this waltz of circumstances twirling in and between whim and what-if.
I wish I could ask you how much you get to decide. I wish you’d highlight the reels of relationships that have been affected by your charms. But then, I suppose that would spoil a bit of the subtle clandestinity of it all. As such, I guess you will have to keep your dream-come-true-drenched secrets. I imagine they are written in calligraphic scripts, dated with invisible ink and locked in a weighty silver box with tiny claw feet. Of course there is a key–but it will have been lost to Father Time for safe-keeping.
Regardless, I have a few things to thank you for … a few twinklings I know to be your handiwork:
- The one and only time I saw the northern lights
- The night I decided to go out and met the love of my life, even if I couldn’t know it at the time
- The mistakes that gave me the courage to get stronger
- The friendships I decided to pursue, even when life was pulling us apart
- The moments I happen to see a tangerine harvest moon, a blue-tailed shooting star, or a dancing parade of pink clouds
You, Serendipity, are the fairy dust of life, and oh, how I enjoy your sparkle.
“You, Serendipity, are the fairy dust of life, and oh, how I enjoy your sparkle.” – love this! Love, love this letter!
Oh, yay! I’m SO grateful!
Words can’t describe the feeling I felt while reading these letters
a bucket of hope and magical dreams now!!! Thank you to my baby sister
for turning me on to the beauty in our world…
Oh, dear friend! That is the sweetest thing I’ve heard all day. Thank you for reigniting the spark.
Your daughter picked a good one to write about. You do have a way of making the world seem like a better place.
