Accidental Beauty

Sometimes beauty happens by accident. Sometimes I’m asked to wait to see the beauty, other times it appears immediately following. Yesterday one of these unforeseen events occurred, causing permanent damage to one of our vehicles. An opportunity to observe comes in, immediate moments of good fortune surface; all involved walked away without injury. Many other emotions arise, inconvenience is present, and while time passes beyond the un-pleasantries, beauty comes in waves of thanksgiving and gratitude.
