Providence, RI – Life is full of lovely surprises, and they're especially fun when we least expect them. Rita Lussier provides us with a delightful reminder of life's occasionally wondrous surprises. Lussier's column, For the Moment, appears each Wednesday in The Providence Journal. Recently, she took first place in the 2010 Erma Bombeck writing competition, an honor she also won in 2006. Her essays have been featured as well in The Boston Globe.
