Today, while working in the yard, I was surprised when a beach ball slowly blew through the yard. At first I wasn’t sure what I was seeing. A beach ball? In the middle of January? Blowing through a land locked piece of rolling Tennessee hill country? Didn’t seem likely but there it was…I stood and watched it silently move across the grass and out of sight.
I kept working and later in the day, out of the corner of my eye, I spied the beach ball coming out of hiding, peaking around the corner of a shed. This time I walked over to it, picked it up, held it in my hands and appreciated the unexpected joy life can bring.
