La Vita e' Bella ( Life is Beautiful)

Sometimes, something wonderfully unexpected happens. Out of the clear blue. In the middle of an ordinary day. Something wonderfully unexpected . . . such as discovering this sign in a clearance bin at Target. It literally called my name.

So incredibly awesome!! It made me smile all the way down to my toes!
God is good, huh? I love it when something wonderfully unexpected (good) happens.

Cheers!

Laura said...

That is a great day maker!
I loooooooove it when stuff like that happens.

....and a close second is when you are frustrated because you can't find a particular shoe in YOUR shoe size but you stroll passed the size 5 shoes and there- in the midst of the tiny feet people shoes- ARE THE SHOES IN YOUR SIZE!!!!!

THAT- is also a great day maker.

What an incredible stroke of luck! I wonder what the odds are of finding "The More, The Messier" inscribed on a wall plaque in that clearance bin (or anywhere, for that matter)?

Wendy said...

I think Suburbancorrespondent has more of a chance of finding "The More, The Messier," than I do of finding "Of Books and Boys!" Oh, well. I'd probably buy "The More, The Messier," if I found it in the clearance bin, because that is definitely what I've got.

Okay, I'm going to the nearest Target and looking in their clearance bin for Little Men, what do you think...any chance it will be there *grin*???

Seriously, the sign is perfect and the flowers so lovely, just like you!
