My life is a miracle.
I had the best weekend with my sons.
It all started with a butterfly.
On Friday morning I couldn’t think of anything to ask the Universe for so I said, “I’d like to see a butterfly today.”
Of course I forgot all about it, went to pick up my sons from school at the end of the day, dropped my aunt off home and then they asked if we could go to Wendy’s for a chicken sandwhich. We stopped by Wendy’s and I got them the kids meals. While I was driving I see a shadow over my shoulder and I look back and my son says, “Look Mommy, it’s a butterfly.”
The butterfly was the toy that they got from their kids meal but I knew that it was also the response from my earlier request.
By the time we got back to my Mama’s house I was feeling great, but also a little scared. Imagine if I allowed my thoughts to focus on my fears, wouldn’t they show up just as easily as my desires? I have to remember to keep my mind on things I want, instead of things I don’t want.
We all settled down, I fixed up some popcorn and we watched a movie I had been fantasizing about watching with my boys ever since I was in Houston. I had daydreamed so much about the moment we could all watch Millions together that I actually manifested the movie. I received it as a gift last week.
On Saturday morning we woke up early to go to their sports practice. When we got there no one was there so we went to have breakfast at McDonald’s. After breakfast we were rolling down 119th street when I made a request to the Universe. “I’d like a happy surprise today.” As soon as I thought about it, I looked to my left and saw five huge bounce houses, trains, cotton candy machines and all kinds of fun stuff for kids.
“Look over there boys!” I said. “Let’s go check it out.”
It turns out that our commissioner had organized a toy give away for children, including a morning of games, pop corn, snow cones and bounce houses. We couldn’t get a toy because it turns out that you had to be invited (LOL!) to the event, but we jumped our behinds off in all of the bounce houses and by the time we left we were all sweaty and happy, licking our snow cones.
As we drove away my older son said, “Wow. Look at how God blessed us. He’s making this such a great day! And He even told Granddaddy to let us have Christmas early.”
“That’s right, Boo Boo,” I said.
“I think God wants to give us two times more than what we really ask for!” my 5 year old said.
“That’s how it usually works,” I told him. “God loves to make us happy. All we have to do is just imagine what we want and be thankful for it because it’s coming.”
So we went home, took a nap and when we woke up I took them to the park. They played in the sun, it’s still 80 degrees down here, while I lay out on a blanket and got some sun.
Then we went driving through a few neighborhoods to look for houses. I told my boys that our house is coming and they thought it would be fun to look and see what we could find. We peeked through windows at all of the houses we saw for sale. They wanted to go to a neighborhood called Biscayne Park so we rode over there and looked at a few more houses.
“Mama, do you have a job yet?” my older son asked.
“Not yet. But it’s coming. Whenever you ask God for something all you have to do is believe it’s on the way and get ready for it. So that’s why it’s a good idea for us to go look for houses now. You have to prepare for what you want even when it looks like there’s no way for it to happen. God likes when we do that because it shows Him that we trust Him to take care of us.”
We stopped at the neighborhood park and I played with the boys again. Up the rock climbing wall, down the slides, through the monkey bars and I even challenged them on the swings to see if they can swing higher than me.
I was exhausted by the time it was all done. We went home and they came up to me cheering after they went to see their Grandaddy in his room.
“Granddaddy said we can have Christmas right now!”
So we opened the presents and my boys LOVED my gifts!
When I first got back to Miami I asked my boys what would be their dream come true.
My older son said, “I’d like a big house with a pool.”
My younger son said, “A hundred bags of hot cheetos!”
Guess what I got my younger son?
You’re right. A hundred bags of hot cheetos! He was amazed.
My older son received a bottle of cologne. I got him Curve for Men. He’s only 7 but he has been saying over and over how much he wants to smell good everyday.
Imagine..this is the first Christmas where I’m not working anywhere and this is the Christmas where I was able to buy everyone in my family presents!
I love me some God!
Today was actually a cool day too.
This morning I sent out an intention (a request for something to happen). I said, “I’d like to get a phone call from someone who loves me. I’d like to hear words of appreciation, God.”
This afternoon my phone rings and it’s my girl Kenya in Brooklyn.
She’s FULL of wonderful stories about her life and I’m sitting there in amazement listening to her tell me how much she LOVES her job and how it’s the perfect match for her.
“Tee, there’s a lot of different ways that you can manifest things but I’m telling you, the way I manifested this job, with such a flexible schedule, is I actually ASKED for it. I told them what I wanted and they gave it to me. My environment is so flexible and supportive and the man I work for really appreciates my work. It’s like I’m doing what I’m good at and they actually appreciate it. That’s what I wanted. I can see myself staying her for a long time.”
That testimony was a blessing to me.
As soon as I hung up with Kenya another call came in and this time it was Leon in DC. We chatted a bit and laughed as usual and I asked about his Mom. When I spoke with him about a month ago he told me that his Mom’s doctors told him that she didn’t have much time left and he needed to go and get her affairs in order.
“How’s your Mom?” i asked.
“She’s great! Her behind is right here, having fun.”
“What?!” I asked.
“She said forget them doctors and she got on a plane and came up to visit me.”
“Wow! That’s great news man!” I laughed.
I got some not so great news from my Mama. I had asked if I could have the boys over to spend New Years and I thought she said Yes. Today she came and said, “No, you can’t have the boys over for New Years. My husband wants a quiet evening.”
“But you said I could! I already told my BBDD!”
“I did NOT say yes. I told you I’d think about it. Now just call your BBDD back and tell him you can’t do it unless you plan to go over his house and have New Year’s there. That’s why you need your own place, Tee. If you had your own house, this wouldn’t be happening.”
I don’t like to be in the streets for New Years, there’s too much shooting going on. I don’t know why she ended up saying No but I’m going to take it as a sign that maybe something great is going to happen soon. Maybe I’ll have my own home before New Years. Or maybe I’ll meet a wonderful man who wants to spend New Years with me and my sons. Or maybe something completely MIRACULOUS is going to happen!
Either way, when I don’t get something that I want, I know it’s because something better is about to happen. So my “not so good” news is going to turn out to be great news after all…
Watch and see!
