"I've always wanted to find a stray arrow," he said as he held up a thin blue arrow for me to see. "I found one! Isn't it amazing? I've looked and looked and today I found one!"
I agreed it was amazing.
"This is going to be a good year. I found a stray arrow!" He happily continued his walk, clutching his prize and talking to people he passed.
I smiled all the way to work. His joy at finding a stray arrow was infectious.
Although, I did wonder how the arrow ended up stray in the first place....when I googled searched the term "stray arrow" it does not pull up happy stories! Mine might be the only one!
While I didn't find a stray arrow, I did find the top of my desk (I put my clothes away) and I did find my bag of greeting cards (I had a list of people I wanted to send notes to) and I did find my desire to sit at my desk and finish our 2010 summer vacation album.
So, I agree. This year is going to be a good one!
