Surprise + Delight
Each season when I visit the Lan Su Chinese Gardens in Portland,
I am surprised with what I find and delighted.
This was fruit of the pomegranate, which did delight me.
Recently when I was walking through my local market where you can often find me,
a sign caught my eye above the jewelry store.
It said surprise + delight.
I have thought of that often since seeing that sign.
It doesn't have to be a piece of jewelry to delight me.
It doesn't even have to be anything with a price tag.
But little surprises such as seeing this pomegranate fruiting
or sitting by my breakfast window watching the hummingbirds feed
are just the surprises that delight me.
I do love surprises alot and as you can probably tell
I search for those small things that surprise + delight.
What little surprises delight you, especially ones without a price tag?
