Don’t get me wrong.. Some of the things I PLANNED for are pretty amazing .. I planned to have kids.. and they are the joys of my life..
.. but the sunflower that popped up out of nowhere is gorgeous… the wildflowers that are growing wild in my flowerbeds are more colorful and healthy than the ones I planted … the detoured road I drove on today caused me to look around instead of driving on autopilot.. the car repairs that gave me a chance to have lunch with my parents.. the exchange students I didn’t plan to “host” are a part of my heart.. the theatre kids I didn’t plan on directing are a huge part of my life..
I am a very spontaneous person..
It took me a lot of years to Grow up enough to come up with plans.. make plans.. make budgets..
Years of reform..
.. and I am mostly proud of myself..
But there is something so beautiful about surprises in your life.. finding the unexpected… and enjoying the unplanned Blessings in your life..
.. so next time Life throws you something unexpected? Look up.. look out.. and take a moment to appreciate it.. Pause before you pull that wildflower.. wonder what’s down the detoured road..
.. and plan time for the Un-Plans…
