We haven't cursed our luck or run amok

Just when my faith in basic human decency was waning fast, I witnessed an amazing thing.

After tidying up my previous post this morning, I headed over to the bank to deposit my paycheck. As I was waiting in line, I heard a few of the office girls talking excitedly about something going on outside. I glanced out the window and was amazed to see a mother duck and 5 ducklings waddling alongside the busy street, looking for a place to cross.
Out of nowhere, a guy came up and escorted them across the 5 lanes of morning traffic... which without complaint or trouble stopped to let them all go by.

What a family of ducks was doing in the middle of town, I have no idea... but I do know that God works in mysterious ways, and I needed to see something uplifting right about then.

That's so nice. Maybe those ducks were there to remind a few people that there's a less complicated world outside the distractions of our every day money motivated routines.
