“Our brightest blazes of gladness are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks." Samuel Johnson.
A smile, a wave, someone affirming what I said, the sun sparkling the water in the creek, the kiss of a cat, the greeting of a dog, a crisp apple, a well-written sentence, a photo that delights, a song heard at just the right moment, a check in the mail, a message from a child, discovering an unusual postcard, a 'find' at the consignment shop, contact from a special friend, perfect pie, an answered prayer. Oh, how I love 'unexpected sparks'! - Beth Almond Ford
