I love a quintessential mystery, especially when it involves a pleasing path or thought. And even MORE SO when it happens right in my own neighborhood. A perfect pairing indeed. ::::::turning cartwheels::::::::
Yesterday as I piddled thinking I had an extra 30 minutes before picking up my friend to venture out to celebrate Chinese New Year (we embrace all cultures especially if we love their food – ahem). I received a text saying ‘On the porch awaiting my ride’ and realized I thought pickup was 11:30, when in actuality it was 11:00. I dashed out the door (she only lives one house up but I hate to be late) pulled to the curb and walked up to get her (still some ice on the driveway from our recent Snowpocalypse here in Atlanta). As I reached to open the door, a small white object caught my eye on the ground next to the bush. And behold the MYSTERY begins. :::::ominous music playing the background::::::::: Chuckling at that — it’s a merry mystery not nefarious at all I assure you. A small dustpan with two little white bunnies (dust bunnies -get it? – oh someone has a sense of humor here). That alone being all cuteness and such, the card attached by rubber band is where the smile and twinkle in the eye enters like a dancing fairy. It says ‘Secret Society of Serendipity’. Serendipity is one of my very favorite words meaning – fortunous happiness or pleasant surprise. Serendipity is also one of my all-time favorite romantic movies. ::::dreamy sigh::::::: Well, this one constitutes both of those. The back of the card reads ‘You make the world a better place and you are appreciated’. Well heck — that’s pretty darn magical in my book.
We were heading out to celebrate Chinesee New Year and thus my research on finding out about this Secret Society would have to wait. A Secret Society. Hm………..
I did eventually arrive home, smiling from our adventures with Dim Sum — and could find nothing on the Secret Society of Serendipity much to my chagrin. Wah! Secret Societies are just that – a secret. Like the Masons or the Seven Society at University of Virginia. All this of course brings up secret handshakes, secret meetings and well…the list could go on for a while.
I love the idea, that someone, or some group, is spreading joy and cheer. THAT is the magical part. :::::wiggling toes merrily::::::
p.s. We’ve tried to see if we can pinpoint who it might be? Then we realized we know many people who would do something so wonderful, and then the Serendipity hits us all over again. :::::beaming:::::::::
