Some things you don't see coming

Some things you see coming - like Christmas. All things remaining constant and predictable, things like sunrise and sunsets are pretty safe bets, too. If you throw something up, it will, more often than not, come back down. Unless it's caught. But, gravity is a law.

You see someone being horrible to someone else and you think, it's just a matter of time before what goes around comes around. Some call it Karma. Same goes for good deeds - the ones that don't go unpunished, that is. You see someone doing a random act of kindness - or a planned one - and you think, a blessing awaits. Yes, some things you see coming.

Others? Not so much. And, when the bad happens, the kind that "blind sides you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday",  you just gotta do what you gotta do. In those moments  you get a better understanding of the stuff of which you are made; the stuff of which you are about to be made.

Thankfully, not all unexpected occurrences are negative or adverse ones. Thank God life has its pleasant surprises; those big and little unexpected gifts of goodness and beauty that come, it seems, out of nowhere. They far outweigh the bad. They come and they fill your heart with gladness. They put a pep in your step. They make you feel like you're flying without wings. "Funny isn't it?  How one moment can change a million after it." (Movie: How she move).

Moments like falling in love.
