When you want something all the Universe conspires to help You achieve it. True or False?

So the dames had a sleep over up at Randi’s lake cabin on Little Green Lake  yesterday. I made a really good shrimp dinner, using Zac’s girlfriend Amelia’s recipe, we are now calling it Amelia’s Shrimp recipe. It is a Key Lime zesty shrimp dish, omg is it good.

Key Lime Shrimp
4 key limes or 2 limes
4 Tbs butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
4 cloves chopped garlic
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
20 large shrimp
hot pepper sauce
Grate a tsp of zest and squeeze 2 tsp juice from the limes.
Heat oil and butter in skillet
Add garlic, lime zest and juice, worcestershire and cook until bubbling.  Add shrimp, cook 2 minutes.
Turn shrimp over, add hot sauce (amount to your liking...Zac likes a huge amount!) and cook until done.
Serve with rice or bread or whatever strikes your fancy.

We have been having a discussion “ when you truly desire something all the Universe conspires to help you achieve it. True or False?

It has been so great, and we have answered all the questions and solved all the problems. Dames can do that ya know!



This was taken at Betty’s Cabana at the other May Birthday Girls party.

I think that when we finally decide what we really want, the universe consires to laugh at us for a while... then asks us how badly we want it... then puts a few hurdles in our way just so we can prove that we really DO want it... the smiles as we go for it. I'll bet your conversation was delightful!

Can you answer "True, IF it is good for you." Sometimes we think we want something badly and it is not good for us. As time passes we realize that there was a reason why we did not get what we "thought" we wanted so badly.

Definitely makes you go "Hmmmmmmmmmmm...."
I like the other comments here too..Besides; are we really old and wise enough to know these answers? What about the old 'be careful what you wish for"?
