It was one of those ho-hum kind of days. I really wasn’t in the mood to do any of the piles of housework I had to do. Nor was I in the mood for a movie or to play on the computer. So I did what I always do: I headed over to Half Price Books.
Construction rerouted me and I ended up at a stoplight not on my normal route. Construction also meant that the light was out of sync. As long as I was bored, I decided to check my geocaching app. What’s nearby?
Lo and behold, on the other side of the light was a geocache! The hint: “look for the blue.”
I ended up behind a doctor’s office near the trash next to the bright blue recycling bin. Hanging on for dear life, was a blue cache filled with trinkets.
The whimsical cache brightened my day. After all, my favorite color was blue and I believe deeply in recycling. I felt lucky to be living in such a wonderful day and age. GPS, geocaches, and books have all brought life to my life. My ho-hum day became my lucky day as my attitude changed. I replaced the cache and proceeded on my errands with a happier outlook on life.
