Unexpected joy

This morning, I was driving to the bank with Boog. I turned a corner and caught a glimpse of some movement ahead on my left, just next to the median in the road.

It was a mommy duck and about eight tiny ducklings. I stopped the car and turned on my hazard lights, hoping to God that nobody would be paying more attention to the person on their cell phone than to driving their car. Everyone stopped, and in slow motion, the little duck family waddled across the street to safety.

The beauty of it brought me to tears.
