I used to keep a list of beautiful words in my journal when I was a child. Serendipity was always my favorite. In our family, if we got lost on a family outing, we declared it a serendipity outing and looked for something fun to do--whatever we happened to discover. We found the most amazing things that way, but we also learned to take a challenge a make it into something special. Maybe that's why I liked the word.
