This is a remarkable story I wanted to share, that happened to me in the last week. It demonstrates fully how the Law of Attraction is ALWAYS working and that indeed, what we focus on manifests itself, when the time is right. And how!!

To set the scene, so that the magnitude of how powerful this story is appreciated, I will give some background information.

Around 30 years ago, I met and married an airline pilot. To say he swept me off my feet would be an understatement and I believed we would live happily ever after. Sadly, this was not to be and without going into all the details after just over 2 years, he left me.

Although, at the time, it was very upsetting, I was only 29, there were no children, so I was able to get my life back on track fairly quickly and went on to remarry, have 2 children and now have a grandchild.

I did hear my ex husband had remarried had 2 children and was genuinely pleased he had settled.

A few years later, I was appalled to learn he had left his wife and his children and had to all intents and purpose, just abandoned them and moved onto pastures new.

I thought his behaviour totally unacceptable. When he left me there was no further contact, however, I could not believe he would do exactly the same thing, when there were children involved. I realised then, just what type of man he was and that I had had a lucky escape! His wife was not so fortunate as she had two small children to bring up on her own.

I have often thought of her over the years and wondered how she managed and always hoped she would be ok, as did quite a few of my friends, who had known my ex. We didn’t have any mutual friends, our one link was the errant husband and he had disappeared!

I guess part of why I felt for her, was that I could only imagine what it must be like going through that when there are young children involved. For me, it had been relatively easy to move on, as there was only me to consider!

Fast forward 25 years and when visiting my parents in Essex, I met up with an old friend I hadn’t seen for quite a few years and she wanted the “gaps” filling.

I told her the story of how my marriage had broken up , how he went on to remarry and how he had left his wife alone and told my friend how over the years, I often thought of her and her children and hoped they came through it.

The very next night, I was looking through various coaching sites and articles etc., and a name Toni Mackenzie popped up.

I was curious as the surname was spelt the same way (I dropped the Mackenzie when I remarried) so had a read of the site.

As I started to read Toni’s bio and her life experience, there was a dawning realisation! To say I was astounded would be pretty much of an understatement! More like awe, amazement, a whole range of emotions! It was her!!!

Just 24 hours earlier, I had been talking about her, for the first time in years, speculating how old the children would be etc., etc., and there she was, giving me the answer after 25 years!

Her story is one of such courage and so inspiring, it brought a lump to my throat! At no point did I feel sorry for her, as it is a story of a woman determined to overcome everything that had been thrown at her and learn from it and help others do the same!

I found it amazing that we are both in the same wonderful business of encouraging and supporting people to be the best they want to be and that we both have a huge interest in developing ourselves and others.

Unbelievable? You betcha! That’s how the Law of Attraction works! It makes the unbelievable, believable and possible!! This is a story you couldn’t make up!! And the timing was perfect!!

Of course, I got in touch with her straight away and I am delighted to say she responded and we are hoping to meet up very soon! I’m sure we will have plenty to talk about, as we seem to share so much in common! (Aside from the husband!)

If you would like to read Toni’s story you can find it at It really is both moving and motivational.

And the ex husband? Apparently, Toni informs me, he went on to marry a few more times and is now living somewhere in the Middle East. I do hope that he will eventually finds what it is he seeks. Whatever that may be!!
