A Wish for a Beach Cottage

Back in August of 2022, Margie and I had a “sidewalk sale” at our favorite shop in Ocean Grove, NJ for all things “mindful and magical.” The day was perfect in every way, especially with people coming in to talk with us, buy our books, and tell us their stories. We met a lovely lady that day, who told us a story about how her wish for a beach cottage came true.

She was living in Brooklyn, and she had a health challenge, which, happily, she overcame. During that time, she made a wish to live in a cottage at the beach. She found herself “down the shore” (that’s what people from New Jersey call the beach), and, low and behold, the perfect cottage was available for sale and guess what?! She bought it! She now lives at the beach, and the smile she wore as she told the story of her wish coming true was all we needed to know that this was exactly the kind of wishing we practice.

Do you have a story of a wish come true you would like to share with us? We are writing a book, to be published in 2023, that will include all the stories we’ve already written and more. We would love to include yours! You can write to us here.

Next week, we will be sharing Barbara’s story about a visit with the sloths. Stay tuned!

Until then,

Peace and All Good
