#JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 20th

Our prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 20th is brought to us by Jill at J-Dubs Grin and bear It!
Jill’s word for our prompt today is “serendipity.”

This was actually one of my favourite films from 2001 starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale.
Two people meet by chance during the sales (of all things) and fall in love. However, rather than act immediately, they separate, she signing a book with her phone number and giving it to charity, and he putting his number on a dollar bill and spending it.
They agree that if they are destined to be together, the book and note will end up in each other’s possession eventually.

The simple definition of Serendipity is an unplanned fortunate discovery.
Hubby and I were a bit like that as we would go to the same places but on different nights, and when he was in the Falklands after the conflict, the guy in front of hm picked my letter out of the penpal box. So, with a little nudge by him placing an ad in the local paper,  we were meant to be together, though had we met years before, we certainly wouldn’t appreciate what we have now.
This ties in well with the prompt I supplied of Companionship for the 18th.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I will have to re-watch the movie Serendipity. I had forgotten the premise. Sounds better than I recall.
