I saw two happy people today. They were laughing over something together as they used the cross walk in front of us. Joy shone on their faces.
I saw a clump of trees that looked like a poodle or maybe some type of dinosaur.
I saw a cloud that looked like something else first and changed into a fish.
But the nephews I spent the day with saw even more than I did. They saw every blade of grass, every tree, every tractor, every cow, and every vehicle (with the correct classification). Even when we were driving in the dark they pointed out the landmarks that they knew would be there.
“The most important reason for going from one place to another is to see what’s in between, and they took great pleasure in doing just that.” ― Norton Juster,
They see more because they look for it. They find adventure in the ordinary, and enjoy declaring it to anyone who will listen.
“I saw a street car conductor today with one brown eye and one blue. Wouldn’t he make a nice villain for a detective story?” ― Jean Webster, Daddy-Long-Legs
How else are stories born except by curiosity? How else is gratefulness and contentment found except by taking stock of all you have been given?
Walk into your day with your eyes wide open and write down what you find. You may be surprised. 😉
