Future Perfect Time 🎃 ...

Recharged with warm sunshine, we enjoyed children expending energy in the bouncy houses and winding their way through the straw maze. There were pups on leashes, musical talent, fragrant foods, and even a pie-eating contest.
The children’s tent was busy with cotton candy and popcorn booth, tie-dye tables, bread bracelet creation station, and the VERY popular face painting.
The teen artist who finally painted my great-niece’s face - she chose a butterfly design, was so very careful and patient, asking what colors she wanted and gently brushing her hair aside.
Impressed with the artist's sensitivity and good nature despite the never-ending flow of children wanting decoration, the noise, and constant activity, I reached into my RAK purse and found a Peace Dove to give her.
I noticed the blooming origami heart that I had made from a $20 and had stashed in there for some perfect future time.
And so it was - the perfect future time!
The artist thanked me, smiled, and gave the blooming heart to her friend sitting beside her for safekeeping. Their surprised expressions made my heart bloom too!!!
I need to make another one and be ready. You just never know when a perfect future opportunity will present itself!
