I was leaving the grocery where I'd picked up a bag of canned goods to donate. A woman was loading her car from two shopping carts. I commented, "Wow, you have a truckload!" She sighed and said, "My son lost his job and I'm trying to help him." I made a few suggestions of resources for him to be able to get help.
She said that he'd been trying to put in applications numerous places. I suggested that he might try my husband's firm. She asked the location and other pertinent information and said she would tell him to put in an application.
I said, "I just happen to have an extra application in my car; let me get it for you." Naturally, she was surprised about my having applications. She said, "Bless you, honey."
I explained that a friend's son wants a summer job and I told my friend I would be glad to get an application for him. When I got the application, the guard said, "You should take two in case they make a mistake."
I believe in serendipity.
