Today my friend Ben posted this HILARIOUS video on Facebook today and I was seriously DYING laughing. Wait for the last 10 seconds. It will be so worth it.
My aunt yesterday was telling me about this You Tube Video where a jazz ensemble plays for a herd (is that what they are called?) of cows and they get mesmerized by the music. I pride myself on being “in the know” and had never heard of this before and it was a really cute video, so I thought I would share it with you guys who hadn’t seen in yet either. (Please tell me I am not the only one in the dark.)
The video reminded me a lot of this story that was a sermon probably 3-4 years ago at church. The world’s greatest violinist, who sells tickets to his concerts for over $100 a seat, set up shop in the Washington Subway. He was greatly ignored. Most people who stopped and listened were children who were scurried on by their parents. The moral of the story was that we often overlook the beauty in our day, the beauty that kids still innocently see. (Read the full story at the Washington Post.) When you think about all the beauty we overlook each day, it helps give your day a little perspective. (I promise to be back to less self-helpy posts soon :).
