The happiest of surprises*

August 10, 2012

None of us get to choose when happiness arrives. It is magic when two wide-open hearts find each other after wandering a desert. It cannot be charted, nor marked in ink on a calendar. We recognize that familiar spark in the other person, and then must be brave enough to grab hold with both hands, and prepare for the happiest of surprises.

We all approach the dust with plans, sometimes small, sometimes large, and then we learn what we wanted most of all is often right there: our wildest dreams, realized.

* For Zac & Karin, on their wedding day.
