Those Moments We Serendipitously Capture … June 24, 2013

By Julie Murphree, Arizona Farm Bureau and Julie’s Fresh Air

Serendipity: Noun, The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way: “a fortunate stroke of serendipity.”

Daily I feel as if I have  moments of serendipity. These moments are mostly influenced by who I work with and for. Moments that are not anticipated, never planned for, but always delightful.

These odds of serendipity shoot up exponentially when I’m hanging out with Arizona’s farmers and ranchers. I have so much fun with who I work for that I often pinch myself.

Our farmers and ranchers are the salt of the earth as we’re so often fond of saying. But they are and they inspire so much in my life.

If you want serendipity, hang out with a farmer or rancher sometime.

Having hung out with a farmer for the past 33 years (almost), I agree completely. They are a very interestingly sweet group of people to be around. Truly gracious, friendly, and yet something else I can’t quite describe; something that draws you toward them.
