Occasionally, Willard, The Bashful Country Boy, as he likes to call himself, drops by and relays an interesting tidbit about his own spiritual journey. I always find his stories interesting.

Written by; The Bashful Country Boy

Many times as we travel thru life we believe our destination is a certain point when in fact that is only a starting point and once the destination is reached , some other purpose presents itself and we determine to chart a new course.


Often times these events seem to be rather insignificant in the general scheme of things , but can have long-term results. When these situations arise, one needs to follow his instincts and go with the impulse, the spirit is leading you and your high self-knows  the proper course to follow, trust in your higher consciousness and you can never go wrong.

I had scheduled a haircut for the Saturday before Mother’s Day with the stylist I had been going to for years and we had developed a fantastic relationship, in fact she was  someone I would want in my life forever.

I had decided to get a Mother’s Day card for my wife after my haircut, but while driving to the salon, and realizing I had plenty of time, stopping before the appointment seemed like the proper thing to do.

As is often the case, the day before a holiday such as this the card rack is surrounded by men looking for that perfect card, not too mushy, but just right. Standing in line, sooner or later the crowd would clear and then finding a card would be easy.

Suddenly a lady whom I had never seen before approached me excited as a dog in a fire hydrant store. She was holding a card from the rack and as she approached exclaimed,” look at this card, it’s beautiful. It wouldn’t be for your wife, but it would be perfect for someone else!

Immediately I knew who it was intended for, that was why I stopped before getting my hair cut. There could be no doubt. My cosmetologist was a nice person, I just wanted to thank her.
