According to Wikipedia–
Serendipity is when one finds something that one was not expecting to find.

However, due to its sociological use, the word has been exported into many other languages.
In the simplest of words, it means a “happy accident”.

He hid like this until I picked him up. Then he ran from one of my palms to the other over and over again. He was all of 1 or 1-1/2 inches the long way and so cute.
I took him back to the office to show the kiddos there, and handed him to one of the little girls. To keep him safe I put him in a clear plastic cup with a lock-down lid that I punched a hole in.
She was so excited, she ran to little Deegan (about 10 months old) and said, “Can you believe anybody gave me a pet turtle?”
She named him Carzel. (I think.)
Now I have a new definition for serendipity: Surprises that make me smile.
Anything surprised a grin out of you lately?
