This is something that just happened to me this week, and I thought about wether it was post-worthy and decided that it was...because it really made me think again what having faith means and believing that everything WILL work out and be ok.<br><br>
As most know, I am on complete bedrest (i even have to go to the potty into a potty by the bed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> ) and therefore I am not doing any of the maternity modeling work the income from which was supposed to help us get the expensive items we still have to buy before the baby gets here. They are a digital camera and camcorder (simply cannot do without these!), carseat for baby, booster seat for DD, and a stroller (figured we'd get one this time around). So thats it for the $$ items, but I also do want a sling and then need some smaller items like bathtub etc but you know, all that stuff adds up too.<br>
A few days ago a magazine arrives to our mailbox that we do not subscribe to. My man brought it in with the rest of the mail and it was sitting here on the coffee table. Well, he opens it to read and goes Hey theres an ad of you in here! Of course Im like HUH. So i go to look at it and I see it is, indeed an ad, from awhile back (before pregnancy) for a brand that I worked for. Except I knew when I did that job, that they were not paying to run ads, the pay was strictly to be used on their website. So I call my agency and I tell them, thinking that maybe they know about it. They dont know about it and are very happy to hear about it and say that they will contact the client and negotiate for additional $$ for me.<br>
Now, Ive been doing this for some time and i know these things always take forever and quite frankly i didnt think I was going to get that much anyway...<br>
But I have to say I got a phone call today and they said the client has agreed to pay what they asked. And lets say what they asked is more than enough to get ALL the stuff that we need. asldkfjasdfkjas;dfkja;sdlkfj<br>
I was like WHAAA? I still cant believe it!!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I mean, seriously. Do you realize the ODDS of what happened???<br><br>
This magazine...came to our door. this damn FHM that WE DO NOT SUBSCRIBE FOR and would have NEVER seen otherwise!!!!!!!!<br>
I dont know maybe its because im pregnant/on bedrest/partially having had lost my mind that I think this is totally bizzare and insane and not a coincidence?<br>
anyway, if you are like me and believe in signs, i hope you enjoyed reading my lil exciting story of the week!

I love when things like that happen <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. I'm so glad you're going to be getting the $$$ you need for the baby's things too.

It's called the law of mental magnetism. That's what it means - ask and you shall receive!<br><br>
