Rose Painted on Hardwood Floor, again!

As a follow-up to my previous posting . . .

Upon returning home after finishing the painting of the rose on the hardwood floor in the aerobic room at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs I told my husband that, “If I had it to do over – I would have turned the rose around.” You see after the rose was finished someone walked in the room and hesitated before commenting on the painting. I got up and looked at it with new eyes and understood why. Because I was so close to it I new what it was but someone who had no idea what I was doing, well, it took a bit for the ten foot long rose to register in their mind.

Two weeks after completing the project I received a call from the contractor asking if I had heard what had happened to my rose. I said, “no” and he proceeded to tell me that workmen on the fourth level had bumped a sprinkler and it had flooded the aerobic room floor on the third level. Only the aerobic room floor! What are the odds?!? They had to sand off my rose to repair the damage caused by the water. I was asked to re-paint the rose, hmmm.

When Tag, the architect, returned to the Broadmoor Resort we had a short meeting about another project. During that meeting he mentioned what had happened to the rose and I told him what I had said to my husband after finishing the painting. His response was, “Mickey, please don’t ever wish for anything you really don’t want.”

Since that happened I have been more cognizant of what I say. I do believe our angels try to give us what we ask for. Have you had a similar experience? I would love to hear about it. Please leave a comment.
