Finding Stray Arrows

On my walk to work, I met a fellow who shouted to me from across the street.

"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!


  1. I hope we all find our stray arrow! Happy New Year - think it's going to be a good one!

  2. Happy 2012 Michelle.
    May we all have happy stories to tell this time next year.

  3. This stray arrow mystery has really got me thinking--but I'm happy he found a stray arrow and I'm glad you found all those things you were looking for as well. :) Happy New Year!
