A few days before Thanksgiving, I was out on a run and suddenly had a vision that I was up in a hot-air balloon, throwing gifts down on the houses of people as I floated by. It was a beautiful vision and I felt happy while I was imagining the scenario. For several days after, I had the feeling that I would see an image of a magical hot-air balloon somewhere (either on a poster or I’d receive an email or card with a picture of one). I’ve come to expect that when I hold a positive vision, confirmation, from this Great Mysterious Spirit of the Universe, will be following. But nothing seemed to appear.
On Thanksgiving morning, I went out for a short run and just as I was heading out the door, something in the sky caught my eye. It was a hot-air balloon, floating up over the mountains behind our house. It floated up in the sky as I watched in awe, until I needed to turn around and head back home and then, almost on command, it slowly began to descend until it was out of sight.
