Tomorrow's a Mystery

What's in the box? It's a mystery obviously, you can't see inside. The ominous question marks on the outside suggest that what is inside might not be entirely desirable. It's not a big box but then some great things come in very small packages. (think candy and spare change) Of course some equally crappy things would fit in such a small box (think lima beans or a credit card bill folded over and over again into a tiny square)

This box could hold anything. It used to hold candy. I've been staring at it for the better part of the morning because it has been refilled by one of my 'fun loving' nephews. I know there is something inside, even an empty box is full of nothing. The question is whether I'm going to be grateful for what's inside the box or not. 

I'm thinking about the week ahead and wondering what's in store. It's a mystery like what's inside the box. You can stare at it all you want but eventually you have to open the box. There might be crap in store or something great either way it demands attention ...the trick is going to be turning whatever it is into something to be grateful for.
