Fortune Teller

The six-year-old I babysit told me he could read my fortune from my palm. Of course I obliged and he told me my left hand contained the letter G and my right the letter A. "Okay," I said, "What do those letters mean?" "G is for grateful and A is for active."

Now this "reading" alone would have been meaningful enough for me, but he continued on to explain that those words meant that in the course of my life I would "do a lot of things" and "say thank you."

Well, that's the greatest fortune I could ask for. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities and relationships I have. I don't think I actually could say thank you enough.
