My theme for the 2017 AtoZ Challenge is "Daily Thoughts".
Each day I will post a thought that comes to mind. The first word of the thought will correspond with the letter of the day.

Help comes in many different ways and sometimes most unexpectedly
This post is not about the help we receive from people known and unknown, random acts of kindness etc because that is help we know about.
But have you ever wondered if there are unseen forces helping you? Do you recognise their methods of helping?
One of the ways I get unseen help most unexpectedly is through songs.
In 2003 I was made redundant after working at this place for 10 years. There were about 15 of us who left. Most of us took voluntary redundancy and we were given 6 weeks to leave. No matter how well you prepare for that last day, you are never truly prepared.
On the last day I walked into the ladies room for the last time, my eyes filled with tears. Leaving behind so many memories, so many you had associated with for so long was a tough thing to do. But as I washed my face, the words of a song came into my head. For a moment it gave me some relief, then the rational mind took over telling me I was just trying to soothe myself.
But as I got into my car and switched on the radio, the same song was playing. Not only that but I had switched it on just as the same verse came on that had come into my head.
Sail on silver girl, sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Whenever I go for an interview and hear this song playing somewhere out of the blue, I just know that I won't get that job but the next interview is a winner and the job always turns out to be awesome.
Sharing a poem I wrote some years ago on my poetry blog - Lost and Found
Life you threw me all askew
In despair I travelled trudging on
Ignorant of jewels yet to be born
Of experiences wonderful and new
I lost it all, those material things
I thought that I had lost my soul
Then Lord you held me, made me whole
And Your flute, it brought me joy and wings
