Lisa over at Curious Girl is hosting Happy Week, and that is an idea I can get excited about. An entire week of happy posts makes me grin just thinking about it. Before you read this, would you please scroll to the end of the page and set my playlist to play song number 26? Ok, thanks.
Ordinary miracles make me happy.
Ordinary miracles like the way a sunset can paint even the WalMart parking lot beautiful. Or, the way spotlights turn into moons against a salmon colored sky. Or, the tender way a big brother kneels down to tie his little sister's shoe. I love the way a favorite song sometimes plays on the drive to work and becomes happily stuck in my head all day long. I love the way I will have something on my mind and find that three other blogging friends are thinking about the same thing - synchronicity. Or, taking the time to stop and listen to children laughing as they play. How about the simplicity of a row of birds on a wire like so many musical notes? And, the flowers that pop up in the most unexpected places. The light bulb moments that fill a school building each day. The tactile pleasure of sharpening your pencil to a perfect point. The way copper turns the most wonderful shade of green. Good hair days, purring cats, personal mail in the box, a clean house, a great book... Ordinary miracles.
