Think & Grow Rich Lessons

For the past 45 years my husband has heard me say I wanted to have a porch and a clothes line.  I know that is an unusual combination, but I love the idea of being able to sit quietly by myself and read a good book on a porch. I also love to smell freshly washed clothes after they have dried on a clothes line.

A few years ago, before my husband lost his sight, he built a clothes line for me for Mothers Day.  Yea!!!

The porch was harder to get because it was going to cost money we didn't have.

Last May, after being on the Think and Grow Rich calls for 6 months, I woke up one morning and said "I will have $10K by July 2017 to build a screen porch.  Now, I didn't have anything in the stream, but I knew that it would happen.

The very next day, I received a call from a store in New Orleans that had never carried my line of New Orleans ornaments and they wanted to meet with me the following day.

After meeting with the buyer of the new store, I went to my car and called her just to verify that she really did want more than $3,000 worth of ornaments by the end of July.  My gosh, I already had 1/3 of the cost of the porch.  Then, shortly after that the hospital my husband is a vendor for wanted more work to be done by him and that would make up the rest of the cost of the porch.

The porch was finished this past Thursday and is more than I ever expected.

Now, it has taken 45 years of pdesire and persistance to accomplish my dream, but when I put the idea of the money out in the universe, it all fell into place.

Thank you, Mentoring for Free for opening my mind to the possibilities that are out there for me.

The Lord says, "Ask, and you shall receive".  Thank you for my wonderful porch.
