Fortune Cookies

Whenever I'm in town, my mom and I have this Chinese restaurant we really like to go to. At the end of the meal they give us fortune cookies, which is an enjoyable part of the whole "eating-out-at-a-Chinese-restaurant" process.

Yesterday, I got two fortunes in the same cookie. The first said, "You will soon witness a miracle." The second one said, "You will spend many years in comfort and material wealth." That's probably the aforementioned "miracle." ;-)

Today we went to the same restaurant because we like it so much. My fortune today said, "You will take a chance in the near future and win." Maybe that's how I get the miracle of material wealth and comfort. :-)

Truthfully, I don't put much stock in fortune cookies, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I wouldn't mind if these particular fortunes came true. ;-)

Sometimes we feel the need to grab the fortune as hope for our lives. I do it all the time, with great things as well as small things. I remember when I was active in the church and knew I was gay, but wanted to change it and become a "normal" person, and many times I prayed, made commitments with God, fasted and many other things hoping to see a miracle to happen in my life.... Well, needless to say that the miracle never happened, and that makes me think that when we are not prepared to face our reallity, taking ful responsibility for what we are, it becomes easier for us to start hoping for miracles or fortune.

Two fortunes in one cookie? It's a miracle!
