A Year ago I wrote in my journal:
Day 40 Eileen's epic JOY JOURNEY of TRUST....I pulled into the car park of the local shopping centre today to get my last minute Easter shopping done. I opened my boot to get my recycle shopping bag out when I noticed a lady pushing her trolley up the slight hill towards me. In my mind came the thought to look in her trolley as she walked past and ask if she had any Easter eggs! LOL! I did! She answered 'No, but I can't find my car'. I asked her what kind of car and what colour and stood looking around with her. She says she was sure she came in through the entrance that was nearby. I don't miss much and I was pretty sure I could see a few tiny tears in her eyes and she seemed flustered. I asked her how long she'd been looking for and was shocked to hear that she had been pushing her trolley around this carpark for half an hour. I put my arm on her shoulder and said why don't you get into my car and I'll drive you around to look for it, it will be a lot easier. She resisted as she repeated her statement about how stupid she felt. I told her I had done a similar thing myself and she wasn't stupid, just human and gently persuaded her to put the shopping in my boot and let me drive her around. We drove all around the car park where she thought she'd parked as a process to eliminate the possibility that her car may have been stolen. She started praying out aloud to St Anthony and then I got excited. Someone had told me that prayer years ago and I prayed it out aloud: "Dear St Anthony come around, somethings lost and can't be found". It always worked for me! She said she'd been praying all along to St Anthony. After we finished driving around this particular car park and NO CAR...I had to ask her where the other car parks were because I am completely new to the area. So we drove to the next car park and after driving around a couple of rows - voila...there was her car. Marie was so happy and leaned across and hugged me and kissed me on the cheek. I felt a big well of tears of gratitude and grace arise in me and told her I wanted to cry. My own Heart was so moved. She was so grateful and said she wished me a wonderful Easter where I would get a big blessing. I already had my blessing.......so much LOVE extended to me and so much JOY to be able to ease the distress of a family member of the Heart. She said St Anthony has answered her prayer and indeed he had! I had intended to stop at another shopping centre on my way back from another errand and had completely missed seeing it! Marie showed me her car sticker and said it was her motto...check out the picture of it above. This encounter reminds me of one of my favourite quotes: "We are all angels and we can fly only by embracing each other" ~Luciano De Crescenzo
