Nowadays, in this sometimes chaotic, unpredictable world, it’s becoming increasingly harder and harder to find something…..anything in our daily lives that puts a smile on our faces. On my birthday I got lucky and found some beauty today.
A few minutes ago I took a break from my next manuscript and checked my Facebook page. I saw a post from one of my elementary school classmates who I’d had a secret crush on some 46 years ago at Robert E. Lee Elementary in Spotsylvania County, Virginia. She never knew I had a crush on her, and to this very day, I refuse to reveal to anyone who this lady is, but every time I see one of her updates or posts online it instantly puts a big ol’ country smile on my face. (I find it fascinating that after all of these years this young girl who I’d dreamed about in elementary school and wrote letters to, but never had the courage to give them to her, is now one of my Facebook friends.)
From the bottom of my heart, Thank You all for your wonderful birthday wishes, and I sincerely hope that all of you also find some beauty in the simple things in this sometimes complicated, negative world of ours. – Randolph Randy Camp
