Yesterday, an hour before lunchtime, I got a call from my son. Did we have any plans for the day? Nothing really, I assured him. Suddenly we had wonderful plans. They decided on the spur of the moment to come our way. Just as quickly, I figured out that the frig happened to have just enough for 4 adults and 2 granddaughters.
Here they came an hour later, toting three doll cribs filled with baby dolls. Oh, what joy!
It's the sudden things that can so lighten our hearts--those things we don't plan which seem to crop up because of the foundations we've laid. They bring hope for the future and energize us all. They inspire us to continue the day-to-day mundane tasks whose importance we may even question at the time.
Rest assured, whether we are speaking to power or simply nurturing others so that they may someday do so at the most unexpected moments, if we keep our focus on the future and how we can help to bring about change in our world, then we truly will have lived life to it's fullest--no matter what the unexpected may be.
