Flashback October 2013
I was walking down the Royal Mile when I saw a big old church. I just presumed it was a Catholic church so I went inside. It was dark and some parts were under restoration or being cleaned.
I lighted a candle and knelt down right in the center. I sat there quietly and prayed with my whole heart. I made three wishes.

My discovery of this old church in October 2013 was only accidental. I was just walking, looking for the corner where the tour guide was supposed to pick me up. I actually got lost. I didn’t know that I walked past the corner because I spotted this church and just kept walking out of curiosity. When I saw the sign outside that the tower was a church, I excitedly went inside to pray and make a wish. I made three wishes not one.
I never expected that I would find myself praying here again right at the St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh after three and a half years. Such a long way from home.
But now I am back, unexpectedly, and here I am feeling grateful.
I remembered, I did pray fervently when I first came here.
And now I remembered, all my three wishes did come true.
