Beauty in Ordinary Things

beauty in ordinary things

Tonight, Dave and I brought Chinese food over to my dad’s house and my sister and her family and my older brother joined us for dinner.  There was a hockey game on television that they all wanted to see so it worked out perfectly.  At the end of the night, we each chose a fortune cookie.  There was a lot of food, so they threw in A LOT of fortune cookies.  Drew had us all laughing because he decided to choose one for Emmy Lou.  It read, ‘You will be traveling and coming into a fortune.”  Hmmmm….!  We are bringing her on our trip to Hilton Head Island later this month so maybe….

Then, he opened up his own fortune.  It said the same thing!  Now, we are all a bit superstitious in our family so I made him save them both.  With only one cookie left on the counter, Drew laughed and wondered out loud how funny would it be if it said the same thing.  Well, it did!  So now, we will take those “lucky lottery numbers” printed on the back and play them in each state we drive through on our way down.  At only a dollar a ticket…it can’t hurt to try.  Maybe, just maybe,  that fortune will come true!

I decided to save mine too.  Nothing about money, or riches, but it read, “You find beauty in ordinary things, do not lose this ability 🙂 ”  Well, I try to, at least most of the time and this serves as a good reminder.  Not just for me, but for all of us.
