Luke did not even know that I was out of town. He was at his college home. I had decided to go with my friend at the midnight hour which barely left me time to pack much less notify my next of kin that I would be gone for a couple of days.
Regardless, a wandering thought had entered his mind the night before ...
"Mom, is going to call me from an antique store and is going to say something about an accordion."
Next morning the wandering thought repeated itself.
I did not know this.
So back to the antique store next to the Lemon Drop Tea Room that I spoke of in my last post the other day, to that part of the story where I left you hanging ...
They was a child's accordion for sale. It was an antique, in a case, in good condition ... very cool. Renee' and I were completely intrigued with it.
Luke inherited my great aunt's accordion a few years ago. Luke loves music ... he picks up an instrument of any kind and within a measure of time is making melodies with it. He is gifted from God!
I pictured his future child playing this instrument, making harmony with their big daddy, Luke someday.
It was a bit on the pricey side and I wasn't positive that he would like it. I was about to make the purchase when I completely chickened out ... "Wait, would you let me call my son first?"
"Sure" ... the cashier was hoping that Luke was up for the deal.
I got him on the first try! Miracle!
"Luke, I am in an antique store and they have a child's accordion here, would you ..."
He breaks in, "I knew you were going to call me about this."
I say, "WHAT????" so that everyone in the store turns and looks to see what I am up to.
"I knew you were going to call me from an antique store about an accordion today. I didn't have a dream, I just had that thought before I went to bed and then again when I woke up this morning."
I stood staring in the face of the cashier stunned. She couldn't wait to discover the reason for my shock.
"Luke, I don't know if you will like the accordion or not, but because of what you are telling me, I am going to buy it."
Luke and I were in harmony.
The lady taking my money was a little uncomfortable with my story. I was too amazed to care.
Pictured above is the little accordion on my new chair.
Actually the base part does not work ... but perhaps can be fixed.
Luke was not into my vision so much ... the one about a little he/she making harmony with their big daddy, Luke. He's just not thinking about that right now. He thought a little niece or nephew might be okay to teach. Guess we need to hope for him to have another wandering thought that will bring about more harmony ...
