Things sometimes happen that are random and completely unexpected as we move through our lives. The people I know and call "friends" are all intelligent, and like myself, they try to be aware of everything that's going on around them. Despite our best efforts, we are sometimes caught by surprise by the world around us. Events unfold that are out of our control. Sometimes the things that surprise us are unpleasant and not at all what we want. Sometimes they are incredibly pleasant and, while unexpected, are exactly what we may need (or want, at least on a subconscious level). When we encounter those moments we feel our spirits lifted by them -- with good cause. They're notable events.
These little things are far and few between. When they happen, they should be delighted in. They should be treasured.
I had one of those moments today.
