In the middle of today, which was somewhat stressful for personal reasons, I happened to be standing outside of Walmart holding a giant 21 quart stockpot and my canning rack. I was waiting for my father to come and pick me up, and there were several other people also standing in front of the store for similar reasons. Two of them, a man and a woman with wonderful Caribbean accents, started sponteaneously singing hymns; their voices were beautiful, mixing together in harmony, and completely carrying the songs acapella. There was a nice breeze blowing, the sun was shining, and I was glad that I got to hear the impromptu concert.
There are small moments like this in every day, and I sometimes think that the world as a whole overlooks them. We shouldn't. We should find them, we should make them, and we should embrace them for what they are--little glimpses of happiness, shared with others.
