I love all of the elements of this piece that point to the universe intervening your lives in order to give you what you needed, and especially Claudine's premonitory knowing on some level (can you tell I don't believe in coincidences? 😉) about this change.

So many magical moments here. Thank you for brightening my day! ✨

Being "part of something on a much larger scale" is what I keep pondering from this similar vantage point. Thanks for this, Jenna.

Jenna, I always enjoy your writing, so simple yet so effective. This one is no exception! Loved the lettuce farm office view :)

Oh this gives me hope that, at (gulp) 55 yo & after 2decades out of the workforce raising my family, & now recently divorced & needing to find work, I can maybe actually hopefully find a job that morphs into something meaningful, albeit one that I begin on a lower rung! Thank you!

Love your stories, as always. Also I’d never heard the bunny dad lettuce farm story! That’s so crazy!

“These were the days when we wiped down our groceries”. God, I’d almost forgotten. It’s amazing how quickly people get used to a new situation, and how quickly we forget what came before. Thanks for a lovely post. Lots of food for thought with this one.

"the pandemic gave us the excuse to end something that we weren’t quite brave enough to walk away from"...so true!
