Miracle at the Mart
When I ran my store Kuntry Bunkins going to the trade shows was a once a year trip that I loved. One year my daughter went with me to the market, or mart as we called it, where I would buy items for my home décor gift shop. Since children aren’t allowed at the show we left the grandchildren at home. Before we left I asked my granddaughter what she wanted me to bring her back. She quickly told me she wanted a bear that says I love you.
On our way south to Georgia I told my daughter I don’t know how I’m going to find a bear that says I love you. For 3 days we kept our eyes open for that special bear my granddaughter wanted.
After my daughter and I had walked for miles at the mart a man approached us with a white object in his hand. Guess what it was? A white bear holding a rose. He squeezed the bear and it said, “I love you! I love you!”
Although I offered to pay for the cute talking bear the man gave it to me. Can you believe that happened? The man was working for a company that was trying to sell stuffed animals. I guess that was his way of getting store owners to enter his showroom. Little did he know that he had made a little girl get her wish for a cute little bear that said I love you.
What would you call that? Fate? Luck? Coincidence? Divine intervention? A miracle? Or maybe a premonition that my little granddaughter had? I’m not sure, but I know that when we got home my precious loved one was so excited to receive the bear she had wished for. Now she is 20 years old and she still has the Miracle bear as we call it. And it still says, “I love you, I love you!”
One of the most amazing things that has ever happened to me. Now tell me what you think about this.
