A LIST OF THINGS THAT MIGHT CONVINCE ME TO BELIEVE IN GOD
- •After my Dad died, I remembered that he wrote me a really heartfelt letter on my 12th birthday. I tore apart my room trying to find it. I thought I lost it and just sat on the ground crying. Then a pile of books fell from the top of my bookshelf and the letter fell down with them.
- •My ex-boyfriend brought his new girlfriend home for the first Christmas after we broke up. I went on record saying that the worst case scenario would be me running into his mom and the new gf without him.I was out and about grabbing coffee with my friend when I said "my friend Lauren posted an Instagram saying she was at [dress store across from the Starbucks we were at]! Let's go say hi!" Right as I open the door to the dress shop, Lauren was in the doorway and I couldn't see inside. She hugged me and whispered "Mrs. Ferriole and new girl are inside, heads up." I told Lauren I'd call her later and peaced out. Never been more serious when I say Lauren was my guardian angel that day.
- •Sometimes, little people are born with extremely bowed legs that require a very expensive, painful, and long surgery to fix. The surgery often can't be done until adulthood which can make it worse. I would have needed this surgery, but I broke both of my legs while I was in kindergarten.They were able to set/straighten my bones in the cast so that I would not need the surgery later in life. Sucked to be in a cast for a summer, but it could have been way worse.
- •Last year, I was the poorest I've ever been. I accepted an office job that I hated and barely covered my bills, but it was a "take this job or leave LA" moment. I called my Mom sobbing and just shouted into the phone "I just want a job in TV! That's it!" 10 minutes after we hung up, I got a call for a season long stand in job.
