Have you ever had a fortune worth remembering?  If so–what was it???


  1. I don’t think I have had a fortune that I remembered but we do always love reading them and some have hit very close to home!

  2. I have not eaten a fortune cookie in years. Years, I tell you. Not that I don’t like them. But getting my husband to dine at an Asian restaurant is a major feat. Too many vegetables, you know.

    Which of the above fortunes was most memorable for you? Or isn’t it on the list?

    • I will go eat Asian food with you—LOVE it, obviously. I think the most memorable one was one that Chris got when we were in PA for a job interview. It basically said that something good was going to happen and yep–he got the job and it was a very good thing. 🙂

  3. I love this idea. You could put these in a basket and when you need a little encouragement just take one out! Like a little shot of love each day. Well, as much love as a tiny piece of paper is capable of, anyway! 😉

  4. These are all perfect for you. #8 is right on. I wish I had saved mine over the years. They are good pick me-ups.

    • Thanks, Darlene. I love to see what the next one will say. They amuse me at times. One time when Chris was interviewing for a job in PA the fortune was right on the mark so I always think of that instance.

  5. #17 seems to be a perfect description of you, from what we’ve heard over the

  6. I’ve saved three fortunes that really speak to me. They are:
    1) You will have a long and wealthy life.
    2) You will succeed in whatever calling you adopt.
    3) Your dearest wish will come true.
    I find fortune cookies fascinating (even if my son says all his friends chuckle over them by adding “in bed” to the end of each statement — ah, youth, heehee!!)

  7. I have thought about blogging the exact same thing only I’m so disorganized that I can’t find my various stashes of fortunes to write them out! 🙂 I think it’s silly that so many “fortunes” these days are just pithy statements. Kinda weird.

    • I agree—-so many of them don’t make any sense as fortunes at all!!!! But some of them stay true to what they should be and that is why I hang on to them all!

  8. What a great idea saving these. I cannot even remember the last time I had a fortune cookie — or Chinese Food for that matter. There is no restaurants like that in my small town. Of course, now I am dying for some Sweet and Sour Chicken balls and a spring roll!

    Best fortune cookie story EVER: I had just moved to New York City at the age of 23. I interviewed for and accepted a job at a French bank.

    Going out to celebrate that night, I got a fortune cookie that said, “Wait for a better offer.”


    Fortunately, Sunday night, before my first day of work, we ate Chinese again. This time my fortune read: “Ignore Previous Fortune Cookie.”

    Seriously! I was so happy. And it ended up being a great little job to get me started.

    • That is amazing! Totally amazing! I love the “ignore previous fortune cookie”! Brilliant!!! And it seems that it has all world out for you! I love it! Thanks for sharing!!!! It was the perfect start to my day to read this comment!

  10. “Look forward to a great fortune and a new lease on life.” I don’t get many of these, but do enjoy reading them. This is one, and I liked it so much it is tacked on my inspiration board. I like #7 on your list; and am available to help you with #4. 😉

  11. I have not kept any of the fortunes I have gotten but I do enjoy reading them. Some are good, some not so good.

    make scence, some don’t

  12. Love the cake one. I haven’t had a fortune cookie since I moved here.

  13. Cole stuck one on the kitchen wall years ago….Just release from your cares and have a good time. The “in bed” ending gives it whole new meaning. ♥

  14. I don’t know – I forgot!
