It seems to me like I get a lot of free gifts, but now I have proof.
A free $5 bill on the street
A free Canon printer/fax
Free computer mice
A free candy cane
A sizable refund from Geico Car Insurance
A free night of hotel
A free shuttle ride to the airport
Free ice cream
Free movies, free comedy shows
Free box of ripe strawberries weighing over 2 pounds
Free jar of flowers
Free coffee, free snacks, free lunches…free, free, free
Plus…all the people who make the mistake of undercharging me…like the young man who forgot to charge me for the expensive ceramic plant bowl and the lavender plant…
Today, I got a free gift from Amazon…it says
A gift from Jennie Johnson. Enjoy your gift.
Except, I don’t know who Jennie Johnson is.
(I’m going to call Amazon tomorrow. I bet they’ll say, “Oh sorry, it’s our packing mistake…but you can keep the gift”).
The gift is a Philips Dawn Simulator…a gentle alarm clock that simulates the moon at night and the sun in the morning. So figuratively I’ve gotten the sun and moon for free, brought closer to 2-3 inches the head of the bed.
What wonderful KARMA.
But the biggest gift for 2014 goes to an uneventful and remarkable diagnosis for a loved one in the family.
I am so grateful. For Palo Alto, this blessed place that I call Heaven on Earth for a transient time.
